This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was provided by John J. Henderson and Roger E. Belson, authors of Their source is Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art".

John Badger Bachelder is known as a portrait and landscape painter, especially of the White Mountains of New Hampshire, as well as a lithographer, photographer, and historian.

From 1854 to 1863, Bachelder focused on drawing and painting city views, thirty-five of which are known to have been produced as lithographs. He painted a view of Manchester, New Hampshire in 1854 and maintained a studio in that city until 1856. All but four of his prints portray places in New England, but he traveled elsewhere as well.

He drew several views of Pennsylvania in 1854, and painted a view of New Jersey from the Lycoming County, Pennsylvania side of the Delaware in 1855. He was in Providence, Rhode Island and New York City in 1858. The following year he painted a picture of the fireman's muster at Manchester. Bachelder also painted views of Haverhill, Salem, and Worcester, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island.

The final city view drawn by him and published as a lithograph in 1963 shows Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. From 1863 to 1865 he was listed as a print publisher at Boston. After that he devoted most of his time to Civil War related subjects.

His city views are remarkable for their documentary truth to the place recorded, and The New Hampshire Historical Society maintains an extensive collection of Bachelder's watercolors of White Mountain scenes.
