A (Andrew) W Lester - Private   
My GGGrandfather served from Feb 1862 until his capture sometime on the 2nd day of Gettysburg, believed to be on/about Culp's Hill. After an interim stay at Ft. Delaware he was settled to Point Lookout. He later released in first prisoner exchange ending up at Chimborazo Hospital.

There was talk in my family many years ago that he was pictured with two others as captured Confederates. I have been trying to find any identities of these 3 men, the picture is rather famous as I see it posted everywhere, even at the beginning of the movie Gettysburg - three Confederates casually waiting for their destiny - looking somewhat glad that they did no have to fight further.

His unit on that day succeeded at Seminary Ridge, but, were decimated on the 3rd. If he was not captured when he was I would Probably not be HERE.
