References & notes

Basic information from Bates,1 who has him as George S. Smithe. His picture, in a Lieutenant's uniform with 2nd Army Corps trefoil badge, is from Ward.2

It is likely he is the same George S. Smith who enlisted as Private in Company A, 192nd Pennsylvania Infantry on 12 July 1864, was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant on 8 December 1864, and mustered out on 24 August 1865.
