The photo above is Civil War veteran Samuel N. Callender in his Ezra Griffin Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Post 139 uniform.
I have always been interested in the stories behind these pictures and was wondering if anyone knows his story. Where did he live? Where did he serve in the Civil War? According to one source he lived in Scranton in 1900, but if you can verify this, please comment as I am sure other reader's will be as interested as myself.
