33rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry Reunion (1911)

In October 1911, a 50 year reunion was held by members of the 33rd Ohio Volunteer Infnatry in Portsmouth, Ohio. The picture was taken in front of the Post Office. A contemporary newspaper account reported that, ...This will be a rare relic in a few years, when most of the 32 members who were present have passed away. The photographer was H.B. Williams. The photograph's inscription read "33 Co. F. O.V.I. 61 to 65 Taken Oct. 12, 1911." It is believed that second from right in the front row of the photograph is Daniel Dorsey and that second from the right in second row is Samuel Llewellyen - both of whom were reported at the reunion and both of whom were members of Andrews Raiders in 1862. Also note veteran second from the right in the third row who is wearing a Grand Army of the Republic hat badge.
