Looks to be a "3" and possibly Charles Snow.
Ha! @Mike Serpa actually posted a likeness of Charles Andrews Snow 3rd MA on his FindAGrave memorial and it is the same pose. Mike cited the copy of the image to "The Third Massachusetts Regiment Volunteer Militia in the War of the Rebellion, 1861-1863," John G. Gammons, 1906

So yes, indeed, we can now say with 100% certainty that the "handsome Yankee" is Charles Andrews Snow (12 May 1829 - 28 November 1903) who served as Chaplain of the 3rd Massachusetts. Don't you love it when we can positively ID an image whose identity has been temporarily lost? :thumbsup:

Thanks so much for everyone's kind assistance and to Mike Serpa for posting the image from the book at FindAGrave.

Hey! Excellent work @lelliott19 finding that. I posted it 4.5 years ago.

Chaplain Rev. CHARLES A. SNOW.


Chaplain Snow was thirty-three years of age when commissioned, and resided in Fall River. He was appointed chaplain Oct. 10, 1862; commissioned October 16th, and sworn into the United States service October 22d. He was on duty with the regiment until it was mustered out. Since that time he had been in professional service as pastor of churches in Fall River, Providence, R. I., South Abington (now Whitman), New Bedford, and West Harwich. In 1898 he retired from full ministerial service on account of ill-health. He is the author of many miscellaneous papers, essays, sermons, important historical sketches, etc. He was a life member of the Old Colony Historical Society. He died in Taunton, Nov. 28, 1903.​

The above is from a book about the history of the Mass. unit found on-line.

I don't know if the artist had more than one studio, but the "Catalog of Civil War Photographers" compiled by George F. Witham, has him as "Crittended, Artist - corner of Main &Pleasant Streets, Fall River, Mass" . I corrected his last name in my copy. This compilation is most useful; even if I have no clue as to the state, in the past, I have gone though the entire listing (indexed by state) and found several purveyors of the sun's arts.
At least one of the cdv's shown on Pinterest has a backmark of J.H.Crittenden 37 Main Street, Fall River.
