Civil War 150th Anniversary Posting – 6th Vermont Surgeon Edwin Phillips


Just in time for the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War!  One of my favorite Civil War portrait photos comes from a pawn shop in Shelburne Vermont.

After purchasing the image, I went on a rampage of research and documentation to figure out who this fella’ was.  Turns out he was a prominent surgeon in the 6th Vermont during the war.  I still have more reading and writing to do on this piece, but I wanted to post it as a kick-off for the 150 year celebration of the Civil War.

More to come…………………………….
