Dr. Bonner lived across the street from ancestors of mine in Holly Springs, Miss. His daughter wrote fiction under the name Sherwood Bonner. Bonner's link to Shiloh is that the state had him operate a hospital for casualties of the battle and other actions in northern Mississippi. He died of yellow fever in 1878.
The picture was in an album from 1865 that I inherited.

William Faulkner used the name Charles Bon in one of his novels. The character was supposed to be based on Bonner, but not a very sympathetic one I'm sorry to say.
