Hendershott wears shell jacket with standup collar and piping, kepi with star on the front, holding drum sticks in his hands. Hendershott had a remarkable history, enlisting in the 8th Michigan Inf. on three separate occasions, the third under an assumed name, and received his nickname as the result of his gallantry at Fredericksburg.
