Description
Captain William H. Hawley, A.A.I.G, carte-de-visite, by Partridge, Bridgeport, Connecticut, c. 1860-1864
William H. Hawley enlisted with the 14th Connecticut Volunteers. He was also the acting assistant inspector general of the 3rd Brig. 2nd Div. 2nd Corps. A February 1864 field report written by Col. Charles J. Powers of the 108th New York Infantry praises Hawley for his professionalism in encountering the enemy. Hawley was killed in 1864 during the Battle of Reams Station in Virginia, as a Confederate attack broke through Union defenses, scattering their troops into a hasty retreat.
