Mounted and Framed albumen photograph, titled "Camp Rogers. Encampment of the 43d Regiment Mass. Vols. Newbern, NC, March 12, 1863", Photographed by Lieutenant. G.H. Nickerson, printed by Black, and copyrighted May 12, 1863. Slight watermark in the lower left margin, else fine. Census records indicate that Lieutenant George Hathaway Nickerson (1835-1890) listed himself as a photographer in Louisville, KY in 1860. According to his enlistment records, however, Nickerson resided in Orleans, MA in 1862 but still registered his occupation as a photographer. He enlisted in the army as a 2nd lieutenant on August 13, 1862 and was commissioned into the 43rd Massachusetts Infantry, Co. E. Although he fought in the war he remained passionate about photography. In June 1863, Nickerson was promoted to 1st lieutenant and served in that position until he mustered out of service on July 30, 1863 at Readville, MA. After the war, he continued to photograph, in particular he worked on a series of stereoviews of the maritime community.
