Fresh to the market, from my personal collection is group of photographs looted by a Yankee soldier in Charleston South Carolina. Two are marked on the back as presented to Henry B. Middleton possibly the H.B. Middleton who served as a captain in the 1st. South Carolina Infantry. The first one is by Quinby & Co. Charleston and is nicely inscribed on the back Captain James Robert Hagood Captain C.S.A. James Robert Hagood enlisted as a captain in the 1st. South Carolina infantry and rose to the rank of Colonel and surrendered with his regiment at Appomattox. Colonel Hagood's brother was famous Brigadier General Johnson Hagood and later post war governor of South Carolina. The other one is in civilian attire and is inscribed Augustine T. Smythe Charleston S.C. and dated March 31,1864. Augustine T. Smythe served in the 25th South Carolina Infantry and post war was a prominent attorney in Charleston. Written on the bottom of each photo in pencil is " Captured Feb. the 25th 1865 by J.E. Pillsworth Co. A 56 N.Y. Vols Charleston S.C. The 3rd CDV is of the suspected looter, private Jonathan E. Pillsworth. My guess is that private Pillsworth obtained the images while he was pillaging the Middleton plantation near Charleston. Also included is my research on the three subjects of the photos.
