The Civil War record of Maine’s Charles W. Tilden will best be viewed beginning on page 41 of our personal collection presentation at MaineLegacy.com but suffice it to say here that, as he appears in this rare locally produced photograph, Tilden entered the military on May 28, 1861 when he was commissioned 1st Lieutenant of Co. B 2nd Maine Infantry. Quickly promoted to Captain in just under a month with the 2nd Maine, by the end of June 1862 Tilden had been commissioned Lt. Colonel of the 16th Maine Infantry. On January 8, 1863 Tilden was promoted Colonel of the 16th Maine and would command the Regiment at Gettysburg where he was captured to be confined at Macon, Georgia then at the Confederate prison at Columbia, South Carolina before being moved to Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia. On February 9, 1864 Col. Tilden escaped from Libby. On March 13, 1865 he was breveted to the rank of Brigadier General. He mustered out on June 5, 1865 at Arlington Heights, Virginia. A duplicate of our own that appears in MaineLegacy.com this circa 1861 Cart de Visite is back-marked by Yarmouth, Maine photographer J. O. Durgan. The particulars of the photograph are best determined by our illustrations. A scarce image!
