CDV of J. T.  Pancoast  who was the Agent for the US Sanitary Commission in Baltimore.  

From an 1863 United States Sanitary Commission bulletin [p. 6]: "In Baltimore, the storehouse has been in the charge of Mr. J. T. Pancoast who has worked with a zeal and honesty of purpose worthy of all imitation, not only in the discharge of his duties as Depot Agent but as Hospital Visitor.  This agency has been of immense importance as many of the supplies forwarded to Gettysburg and Frederick during and after the Confederate invasion of the loyal states were purchased in Baltimore. In this complicated business Mr. Pancoast has always proved to be most valuable as an aid."

Price: $95.00
