Picture 8 of 18

This CDV is identified along the bottom as Andrew McKillip. An ink inscription on the back reads, "Uncle Andrew was our only brother. Killed at Fredericksburg - Va near the close of the war". McKillip enlisted into Busteeds Light Artillery Battery of Illinois at age 22 years on Sept. 9th, 1861. On November 12th, 1862 he transferred into Battery G of the 1st New York Light Artillery. A month to the very day of his transfer Andrew found himself crossing one of the pontoon bridges, which spanned the Rappahannock into Fredericksburg, and met his fate. While crossing the bridge he was struck down by rebel fire December 12th, 1862, the only casualty his battery incurred during the engagement. Image Copyright Matthew Fleming.
