Lithograph 

Many of you have seen this lithograph of Capt. William Murray pre war serving as commander of Company D 53rd Maryland Militia (Maryland Guard Battalion ). What you prob didn’t realize is who the man standing next to William Murray is. The man to the right is Clapham Murray, William’s Brother. Both men would go on to serve in both 1st Maryland Infantry and later in Co. A 2nd Maryland Infantry.
