BOETTICHER, Otto (circa 1816-?), probably born in Prussia, served in the Prussian Army before he came to America circa 1850.  From 1851 to 1858 he had a studio in New York as a military artist and lithographer.  In 1851 he joined Charles Gildemeister, another German immigrant as a partner in a lithographic business.  They produced many lithographs on military subjects.  From 1861-1864 Boetticher was an army officer and distinguished himself during the Civil War.  He was taken prisoner and made a well-known drawing of prisoners playing a baseball game.
