Caption: Samuel Kosciuszko Zook (1821-1863), US Civil War general, also known as Samuel Kurtz Zook (birth name). Zook worked in the emerging field of telegraphy, moving from Pennsylvania to New York City around 1950 to become superintendent of the Washington and New York Telegraph company. He also trained with local militias, and when the US Civil War broke out in 1861 he was a lieutenant colonel. He raised a regiment and became a colonel later that year. He fought in several battles, and was promoted to brigadier general in 1863. General Zook was killed at the Battle of Gettysburg on 3 July of that year. Photographed during the US Civil War (1861-1865).
