Post War CDV of Valentine LaPoint, who was a surviving
veteran of the 81st New York Regiment until his death in
1913. See the tintype of him listed this morning.
His GAR badge is on his chest. He lost a leg to amputation at
the 1864 battle of Cold Harbor, but got an artificial leg,
and lived, and worked until the day before his death in 1913.
