Cast of Warriors

Here shown are the soldiers, from both sides, who played a role in William Harmon Harden's military service. Forty-two are specifically mentioned in the WHH letters; the rest are part of the 63rd's Combat History. I hope that interested readers will be able to supply many of this missing photographs.
