    The staff, at least partial, of the 5th New York Infantry Regiment, also known as Duryée's Zouaves, on the porch of the Segar House at Camp Hamilton near Fortress Monroe, Virginia, 1861. The persons are identified, left to right, as:

    Maj. J. Mansfield Davies
    Asst. Surg. B. Ellis Martin (sitting)
    Lt. Col. Gouverneur K. Warren
    Unknown
    Chaplain Gordon Winslow (sitting)
    Adjutant Joseph E. Hamblin
    Col. Abram Duryee
    Surg. Rufus G. Gilbert

    Originally photographed by George Stacy with the picture being from the old generalsandbrevets. The Library of Congress has a stereoview-version of it, from which the identifications are, titled Fortress Monroe, Col. Duryea [i.e. Duryée] & staff.

    The former eminent historian, author and preservationist Brian Pohanka wrote a fantastic book on the 5th New York Infantry before his tragic death from cancer in 2005. David.
