I just bought this CDV identified as Frederick Dexter, wearing his Boston Independent Corps of Cadets uniform. You can make out the ICC on his kepi and his Independent Corps of Cadets beltplate. Dexter joined the ICC in April 1860. In May 1862 the company was mustered into Federal service for about 2 months, serving at Fort Warren in Boston Harbor guarding Confederate prisoners housed there. In September that year the company took a lead role in recruiting the 45th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment, a 9-month unit that served in the New Bern, North Carolina area. Because of the number of ICC members enlisted in the regiment, it was commonly referred to as "The Cadet Regiment". Dexter served as a sergeant in Company B. In December 1862 the regiment participated in battles at Kinston and White Hall, resulting in a number of members killed and wounded. Dexter was discharged due to disability in January 1863. I don't know if this was due to wounds or illness. Does anyone have access to Fold3 information that they'd be willing to share that may give me more details? Thanks. Dexter apparently continued his membership in the ICC following his Federal service, as I found info indicating he served as a corporal, sergeant, and lieutenant in the company.
