Background Information:

John G. Keyser was born in Germany in Oberstenfeld between Marbach and Wȕrttemburg on May 13, 1827. He arrived in Philadelphia when he was 19 years old on January 2nd, 1847 from London. He remained in Philadelphia until 1856 when he moved to Bridgeton, New Jersey. Keyser was always known for being a painter, yet in an 1860 census Keyser’s occupation was listed as a “tailor” and he was residing at a hotel. The 1860 census conflicts with a 1879-1880 advertisement for Keyser’s paint shop that stated, “Established – 1858.”

[1] On September 2nd, 1862 Keyser enrolled in the army, joining the Twenty-Fourth Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers Company H.

[2]The sketches within this collection were created by John G. Keyser between September 1862 to July 1863, while he served as a private for the Twenty-Fourth Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers Company H during the Civil War. The New Jersey Twenty-Fourth Regiment served nine months. Keyser volunteered and served from September 2, 1862 – June 19, 1863. His company was involved in both the Battle of Fredericksburg in December 1862 and the Battle of Chancellorsville in May 1863. Company H travelled from New Jersey to Baltimore, Washington then to its final destination of Virginia, where they spent majority of their time. Keyser captured the travels, the camps, battles, and men, immortalizing them in his sketches.

[3]Once Keyser was out of the service, he returned to Bridgeton, New Jersey. He continued working as a painter. He sold sketches he had done while in Europe of battle scenes of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, along with sketches of the different camps of the 24th Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers Company H from Beverly, NJ to Virginia. In 1891 Keyser applied for his passport to return to Germany. Although he planned on staying only a year before returning to the United States, Keyser fell ill in Germany and died there on February 11, 1902. His death was announced in the Bridgeton Evening News on March 5, 1902.[4]

Scope and Content and Arrangement:

The overall collection consists of sketches, and paintings of battle scenes, encampments, prisons, and soldiers that John G. Keyser saw and experienced during his service in the Civil War. The exact date of the acquisition of the collection is unknown, but is believed to have been in the Society’s possession for almost as long as the Society’s existence. The original order of the collection was altered, the individual sketches have been arranged to fit the historical timeline of the travels, camps, and battles of the Twenty-Fourth Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers Company H. The sketchbooks are still in the original order have not been altered. There were some discrepancies of the dates that were marked on the sketch with the image. For example, sketch #4 is a scene of Baltimore and is dated for December 3, 1862, Keyser and the regiment had left Maryland and were already in Virginia by December 3, 1862. Instead of following the date, the sketch is in the order of the image.

Drawings and paintings whose dates remain unknown have been placed at the end of the collection or with similar sketches as appropriate. For example, sketch #18 is of Fredericksburg with no date and was put in the order with the battle of Fredericksburg sketches. Another example is painting #10 that has no date, but because there are only three paintings, it was placed in the order with the other paintings.
