    The adjutant in this photo is my 2nd great grand uncle, Waters Whipple Braman. During the Civil War, Waters wrote letters home to his uncle who raised him, Waters W. Whipple and cousins in Troy, NY. The letters are in the Special Collections of the NYS Library in Albany, NY. In his Aug. 24, 1862 letter he mentions that he tents with Col. Butler.
    A copy of this photo was published in my local newspaper in Cambridge, Washington County, New York on June 23, 2011. Col. John S. Crocker was a Cambridge attorney.
