Item #37761 Mint carte view of Colonel Joseph Jermain Slocum. Slocum would be commissioned a captain in the US Volunteers Commissary Department in mid February, 1862. He would be brevetted to major in March, 1865 with a promotion to colonel in October, 1865. His entire military career would be spent in the Commissary Department before mustering out of service in July, 1866. He looks to be wearing the rank of colonel here dressed in his double breasted frock. Very nice view. Back marked out of Cincinnati, Ohio. $125.00


Item #45111 Very rare medical carte view of a wounded soldier taken by Reed Bontecou of Washington. Reed Bontecou was the surgeon in charge of the Harewood General Hospital located in Washington. He began photographing the wounded men that came under the hospitals care to document the severity and types of wounds that had been received. Each subject was photographed with a slate board that identified his name and regiment and was posed in a manner which displayed the wound. Each view was then cataloged and given a sequence number in red ink by Bontecou. The surgeon would amass a considerable collection. This view would have been the 564th image taken. They are however very seldom seen now a days. This view shows Irish immigrant Michael Sutherland who would serve in the 28th Massachusetts Infantry. Michael would be wounded in action on May 12, 1864 at Spotsylvania Court House. He would be discharged for those wounds in July, 1865. Extremely rare and hard to find view. $700.00


Item #33901 Very nice carte view of a Federal foot soldier taken at Benton Barracks. Dressed in a four button sack coat with a M1864 cartridge box worn over the shoulder. Standing pose holding his musket with gloved hands and a pipe clenched in his teeth. Nice Benton Barracks back drop is shown. This one does have the Benton Barracks back mark on it as well. You don't see the carte views taken here as often as the hard images for some reason. Very nice view but this one does have rounded corners. Still a killer carte view! $200.00 SALE PENDING!


Item #11643 Very nice carte view of Major General Daniel Butterfield. Daniel Butterfield was born on October 31, 1831, in Utica, New York. After graduating from Union College, he became a businessman in New York City. When the Civil War began, he joined the Army. Although he had no Regular Army experience, he rose quickly through the military ranks. By the middle of 1861, he was a colonel of the 12th New York Militia, which he led in the Shenandoah Valley in the First Bull Run Campaign. He was appointed a brigadier general, to rank from September 7, 1861, and commanded a brigade in the V Corps/Army of the Potomac. Butterfield won a medal of honor for his bravery at Gaines' Mill, in the 1862 Peninsular Campaign. In July of 1862, while in camp at Harrison's Landing, Virginia; Butterfield created "Taps." He began with "Tattoo," the "lights out" bugle call adapted from a French bugle call in 1835. Taking the last 5 1/4 measures of "Tattoo," he worked with bugler O. W. Norton of the 83d Pennsylvania to polish the piece into what is now known as "Taps." Butterfield himself ordered that his and Norton's bugle call be used instead of "Tattoo" to signal the extinguishing of lights in camp. After the Civil War, "Taps" would be established as the official military call for the end of the day. Butterfield also designed the system of corps badges used by the federal army. He was appointed a major general, to date from November 29, 1862. His rapid advance in the military was largely due to his skill in military administration and his well-placed political connections. Nevertheless, he returned to divisional command, after serving indifferently in the Fredericksburg Campaign. When Butterfield's friend, Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker, took control of the Army of the Potomac, he made Butterfield chief of staff. Butterfield soon earned the nickname, "Little Napoleon," because of his bad temper and meddlesome assertiveness. Nevertheless, Butterfield maintain his position, even after Hooker was replaced by Maj. Gen. George Meade. Wounded during the third day of battle at Gettysburg, Butterfield took time off to recuperate. Upon his return to the army, he resumed service under Hooker at the Battle of Chattanooga. In the Atlanta Campaign, he commanded a division in the XX Corps, after which he was brevetted a brigadier and major general. Since he was sent home as an invalid before Atlanta, he finished the war on special service. After the war, Butterfield served as superintendent of the army recruiting service and colonel of the 5th Infantry, until 1870. He died at Cold Spring, New York, on July 17, 1901; and was buried at West Point by special order, although he never attended the military academy. This one has a nice period ink id across the front. Back marked by Gardner. $125.00

 
Item #44765 Superb carte view of Lieutenant Aaron H. Ingraham of New York. Ingraham would muster as a corporal with the 48th New York in August, 1861 but would have aspirations for bigger things. He would be promoted to quarter master sergeant in mid January, 1862. A year later he would be promoted to 2nd lieutenant of Company C. So adept was he at his position as quarter master that his superiors refused to release him from the position for 8 months after his promotion to lieutenant. After finally being released from his duties as quartermaster he would join the regiment just in time to participate in the operations against Petersburg and Richmond. In a letter written home to his parents months earlier he would lament as to whether he would be able to prove himself in battle and questioned his own bravery in the face of the enemy. His opportunity to prove his mettle came on June 1, 1864 at Cold Harbor and he would not falter in his duties. Ingraham and the men of the 48th would charge across the field of battle and capture a line of Confederate works. Here the men became pinned down by enemy fire suffering greatly from an enfilading fire. The men had but one choice and that was to charge forward. Ingraham would make his way to the front of his men encouraging them to press forward. As he climbed the breast works to lead his men forward he would be struck down in the act and would be killed here. His men would be forced to retreat and leave his body in the hands of the enemy. While Ingraham's duties as an officer in battle were but brief he more than solidified his courage and abilities as an officer. This view shows Aaron dressed in his frock and wearing his lieutenants bars which he had long hoped to obtain. A beautiful period ink inscription on the back of this view reading "A.H. Ingraham 1st Lieut. 48th NYV". This view was also published in Ron Coddington's book "Faces of the Civil War". It does come with some paper work on Ingraham as well. Superb image and great story! $325.00


Item #68743 Mint vignette carte view of Confederate General Henry Heth. He would serve as Robert E. Lee's quartermaster and would become one of Lee's close friends. One of Lee's few generals who Lee would refer to by first name due to their close friendship. He would command a division for most of the war. It is Heth who has for the most part shoulder the blame for the Battle of Gettysburg after sending half of his division into the town. Henry himself would be wounded during the battle when he was struck in the head by a ball. At the time he was wearing a cap which was to large for his head and he had stuffed it with newspapers in order to make it fit properly. The ball struck the paper which was wadded up inside the brim on the cap and most likely saved his life. Following A.P. Hills wounding at Chancellorsville, Heth would be given command of his brigade in the 3rd Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia. He would surrender with Lee and the rest of the Army of Northern Virginia on April 9th. War date southern back mark by Tanner & Van Ness of Lynchburg. $300.00


Item #78234 Very rare war date carte view of an unidentified Virginia rebel. Don't see the carte views of the common enlisted Confederate soldier very often at all. This view shows an older soldier dressed in a shell jacket which appears to have been made from a corduroy material. Matching trousers with a very wide black trouser seam. This one is back marked by Yates & Medernach of Danville, Virginia. Very rare view. $400.00


Item #22123 Beautiful cate view of Brigadier General Andrew J. Smith. Andrew would begin the war serving as a colonel with the 2nd California Volunteer Cavalry. He would quickly rise to the rank of brigadier general with the United States Volunteers and take over command of the cavalry in the Department of the Missouri as well as the Department of the Mississippi. Smith would take part in the Battle of Chickasaw Bayou and the capture of Arkansas Post while serving in the Army of the Tennessee. He would command a division during the Vicksburg Campaign and again during the Red River Campaign. As a result of his actions at Pleasant Hill he would receive a promotion to colonel in the regular army. In July, 1864 Smith would defeat Confederate General Stephen D. Lee at the Battle of Tupelo. That fall he would pursue Confederate General Sterling Price as he conducted raids into Missouri. Smith would play a significant role in the victory during the Battle of Nashville. His final campaign would be leading members of the XVI Corps against Mobile, Alabama in 1865. This is a really sharp view of General Smith. It is back marked out of Memphis, Tennessee. $175.00 SOLD!


Item #81656 Killer carte view of this unidentified grizzled old Federal sergeant. Sporting a beard and mustache only rivaled by today's hipsters. Dressed in a frock coat with sergeant rank on the sleeve. His trousers do however lack the wide stripe down the outer leg for his rank. He sits with his arm resting on a small side table while holding onto his NCO sword with the other in his lap. He does where a rectangular "NY" belt plate which is clearly visible with the naked eye. His cap rests on the table next to his elbow. He's posed in front of this wonderful back drop featuring a Palmetto tree. While this image is not back marked it has been identified to photographer J. B. Jones of Alexandria, Virginia and Camp Rendezvous which was located at point. Camp Rendezvous served as a distribution point for soldiers who were being returned to their old regiments or awaiting reassignment to a new unit. Just a beautiful view! $200.00 SOLD!


Item #22543 Carte view of Captain William P. Jordan of Maine. William would fist be commissioned into the 1st Maine Infantry early in May, 1861. Only a 3 month regiment, William and the rest of the men of the 1st Maine would be mustered out that August. Two months later he would be commissioned a captain in the 10th Maine Infantry. There he would get his first taste of battle.William would survive the battles the regiment faced and be mustered out in May, 1863. That December he would join the ranks once again. This time serving as a captain with the 29th Maine Infantry. He would be sent on detached duty to Elmira, New York to work at the prison camp there some time in 1864. Eventually he would be mustered out in June, 1866. William is shown here in this standing pose dressed in his frock and wearing the rank of captain. The corners on this one are slightly rounded for the album which once housed it. Nice clear view. $145.00


Item #99098 Carte view identified as Resse J. Millard of Pennsylvania. Resse would muster as sergeant in the 2nd Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery in January, 1862. Ten companies from the regiment were sent to Washington D.C.  for 2 years starting in February, 1862 to assist in building fortifications and doing garrison duty. This image was taken some time during those two years. Resse would be discharged for a promotion to a captain in mid April, 1864 moving from Company F into Company I. Resse may have wished he had stayed at his old post. Two months after his promotion he would be captured at Cold Harbor on June 2, 1864. He would spend the remainder of his enlistment housed in a Confederate prison in Macon, Georgia. The captain would eventually be paroled and discharged in March, 1865. Resse is shown here dressed in a dark four button and very long sack coat with matching dark trousers with a wide red trouser seam. His cap can be seen resting on the table at his side.

Item #28761 Extremely nice carte view of an unidentified Federal 1st lieutenant. Wonderful vignette view of this officer. Nice crystal clear view sporting wavy hair and a full beard and mustache.

The clarity and color tone is just wonderful on this one. No back mark how ever. Sharp looking view. $100.00


Item #33254 Carte view of a Federal infantryman photographed in front of the Camp Rendezvous back drop. Standing pose next to this pedestal on which his cap rests. Dressed in a sack coat and military vest. Camp Rendezvous served as a transition point for soldiers returning to their regiments after furlough's or convalescences as well as those transferring into new units. This one does have the Camp Rendezvous of Distribution back mark on it. $100.00


Item #91321 Very nice carte view of Union General Philip H. Sheridan of Ohio. This one has a facsimile signature of Sheridan along the bottom . Still a very nice carte view. This one is back marked by Anthony and has a tax stamp on the reverse. $75.00


Item #67111 Carte view of this unidentified 1st sergeant. Dressed in a Federal infantry frock with this wonderful example of a 1st sergeants insignia on the sleeve.

No back mark on this one but there is a tax stamp on the reverse. Really nice view. $150.00

Item #11902 Carte view identified as Richard Blain of the 28th Illinois Infantry. Blain is seen here dressed in your standard infantry frock. he would muster with Company F in late September, 1864 and serve until his discharge on July 25th, 1865.

Item #67121 Carte view of Captain Robert Farley Clark of the 24th Massachusetts Infantry. Clark would be commission as a captain in Company F in October, 1861. The regiment would become part of Burnside's Expeditionary Corps and see action at Roanoke Island, New Bern and a couple others. Clark would however resign in February, 1864.

Back marked out of Boston. $150.00
 

Item #39784 Very rare war date carte view of Colonel William Pickney Shingler of South Carolina. Shingler would be one of the signers of South Carolina's Ordinance of Secession in 1861. He would start his Confederate service as a staff member under Colonel Clement Stevens. By the time the Battle of First Bull Run began he had by then moved to serve on the staff General Barnard Bee. After the battle he would return to South Carolina to raise a cavalry/infantry unit that would later become known as the famed "Holcombe Legion". Shingler would serve as the lieutenant colonel for the regiment and led the men in action against Federal troops positioned on Edisto Island, South Carolina in March, 1862. Later that October he was promoted to colonel and commander of the 7th South Carolina Cavalry. There he and his men would see action during the Petersburg Campaign. A promotion to brigadier general was in the making but Shingler had a falling out with Jefferson Davis. Shingler intentionally disregarded an order from the War Department to take command of another regiment. In doing so Davis refused his promotion. As a result William would resign from the Army in May, 1864 and return to South Carolina. There he would serve as the states commander of militia. Now this is the first and only view I have ever seen of Shingler. On top of that it is back marked by well known Richmond photographer, Vannerson. This one does have some very old and faint pencil writing on the back but I am unable to make it out. It is accompanied by copies of his service records as well as copies of his letters requesting pardon, his pardon by Andrew Jackson and recommendations by Generals Elzey and Gist Fine. Hard to find view! $750.00


Item #21299 Beautiful carte view of Major Charles H. Fosselman of the 7th New Jersey Infantry. Just weeks into the war Charles would enlist as a private in the 2nd New Jersey Militia. There he would serve in the defenses surrounding Washington and be held in reserve during the First Battle of Bull Run. Discharged at the end of their 3 month term he would then enlist as a sergeant in the 7th New Jersey beginning in September of 1861. Charles would see considerable action during the Peninsular Campaign fighting at Williamsburg, Fair Oaks, The Seven Days, Second Bull Run and Antietam. He would somehow survive the campaign uninjured. In October, 1862 he would be promoted to sergeant major and would fight on through the Fredericksburg Campaign and the disastrous Mud March. A promotion to 2nd lieutenant would come in April, 1863 followed by his participation in Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and the fall Mine Run Campaign. January, 1864 found Charles with another promotion to 1st lieutenant. He would lead the regiment at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Petersburg. In the fall of 1864, Fosselman would be appointed to Adjutant in place of Charles Dougherty who had been severely wounded in battle. Through the fall of 1864 he worked re-enlisting veterans of the 5th New Jersey who transferred into the 7th to fill spots left by the men who had been mustered out of service. Just prior to the final assault on Petersburg, Charles would be promoted to Major. His luck would finally run out on April 6th, 1865 when he was wounded while leading an attacking party against a Confederate wagon train as they tried to escape from Petersburg. Charles would finally be mustered out of service in July, 1865 after being promoted 5 times. Quite an illustrious career. This view shows Charles with his final rank of major. Beautifully signed on the front in period ink, "Truly your friend, C. H. Fosselman Major 7th N.J. Vols." A little bit of paper loss to the back where somebody removed the tax stamp. No back mark. Wonderful view! $250.00


Item #11290 Very interesting carte view of this soldier dressed in a Zouave style uniform. His cap has the numeral "6" pinned to the front along with the company letter "A". This one is back marked out of Baltimore and I believe this is a member of the 6th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia. He is dressed in this unique dark Zouave jacket with trefoil cuff design and unusual triangular shaped shoulder tabs. The same design adorns the waist sash. The 6th Massachusetts of course became forever known to history as a result of the Baltimore Riots in which the regiment was mobbed by the town citizens as they attempted to march through the city on their way to Washington. I originally thought this to be a view of Luther C. Ladd of the 6th Massachusetts who became the first soldier of the war to be killed in action as a result of the riot but I don't believe that to be the case. The regiment would return to Baltimore in May and occupy the city for several days and would do so again in both June and July. Very rare view. Back marked by Shorey's Gallery of West Baltimore St. $175.00

 
Item #58761 Carte view of Lieutenant Colonel Elisha Hall of the 95th Pennsylvania Infantry, Gosline Zouaves. Hall would be commissioned a captain in Company C in September, 1861. A promotion to lieutenant colonel would come in late June, 1862. The regiment would be heavily engaged during the Peninsular Campaign and would take heavy losses at Gaines Mill. They would fight at Antietam, Fredericksburg and Gettysburg where they were ordered into action on July 2nd. Hall would however not take part in the crucial battle. He would be killed two months earlier on May 3, 1863 while leading the regiment at Salem Heights. This one has a period id on the back reading "Cap Hall By Mail 95th P.V. Gosline Zouaves" Back marked out of Washington. Rare view. $225.00


Item #22765 Cabinet card view of Colonel Addison W. Preston of the 1st Vermont Cavalry. Preston would be commissioned a captain with Company D in mid October, 1861. That following September he would be promoted to lieutenant colonel. He would make colonel in late April, 1864. The 1st Vermont had quite the war record. Far to long to be summed up in one paragraph. They would see action in 76 engagements during the course of the war! Addison was a born soldier and excelled in war. During the Battle of Ashby's Gap in September, 1862 it was noted, Alone, Preston left the impasse on the road [Union and Confederate troops were facing each other on a narrow Virginia road] circled out into the field beyond the stone wall. Then he pointed his charger at the barrier and urged him forward at full speed. Suddenly and surprisingly to the troops on the other side, horse and rider ‘leaped the stone fence into the road in front of his men, and, waving his sabre and shouting to them to come on, dashed straight at the force in front of him.’ Not a single Vermont trooper waivered as the gallant sixty raised their sabers in unison, let out a whoop, and followed…their leaders at a gallop.   Two months after his promotion to colonel the regiment would find themselves engaged in battle at Haw's Shop. Preston would head out in front of his troops and crawled to the forward skirmishers to observe the enemy which lay in very close proximity. For whatever reason rose to his feet directly in front of the enemy and was immediately struck by several balls. A fatal shot struck him directly in the breast near the heart. His body was carried to a nearby stream where he would expire shortly after. George Armstrong Custer upon seeing the body of Preston commented "There lies the best fighting colonel in the cavalry corps". This one does have an ink id across the front bottom obviously not in Preston's hand. Nice view of the colonel. $150.00


Item #90321 Pristine carte view of Captain George A. Bowne of the 1st New Jersey Cavalry. Bowne would muster as a corporal in Co. I. starting is September, 1861. He would be promoted to sergeant in June, 1863. Late that December he would re-enlist in the regiment and the following February he would be promoted to 2nd lieutenant of Co. B. That July he would be promoted to 1st lieutenant of Co. A. and finally to captain in November. This view shows him wearing the rank of 1st lieutenant which places it between July and November, 1864. The 1st New Jersey would be one of the hardest fought units of the war participating in no less than 95 engagements! Bowne would be wounded at Haw's Shop on May 28, 1864. This is a beautiful view with nice deep tones. Back marked by Bogardus of New York. $275.00


Item #68675 Carte view of Captain William B. Clandy on the 99th Illinois Infantry. This view came out of an album which held a number of views of men from the 99th. Another view of William can be found on the HDS. William would muster as a 1st sergeant in August, 1862. A promotion to 2nd lieutenant would come in January, 1863. It would be followed up by a promotion to 1st lieutenant just 3 months later. he would make captain in May, 1864. William is shown here dressed in a unique tailor made 3-button sack coat with at least 3 external pockets. You can see the breast pocket bulging from whatever he has placed in there. This view would date to his time serving as 1st lieutenant as that is the rank shown here. He wears this great felt slouch cap which he has molded the brim up like the edges of a bowl and then taken the crown and pushed the center. That thing probably held more water in a rain storm than a milk bowl. This one is back marked out of New Orleans. $125.00


Item #33761 Rare carte view of what is most likely an unidentified clerk with the Treasury Department who served in the Treasury Guards. In 1864 President Lincoln issued an order that all civilian members of the Executive Departments of the government located in Washington were to be formed into regiments for defense of the city should it face attack. All male Treasury employees between the age of 18 and 45 were required to join the Treasury Guards. The regiment was composed of roughly a 1000 members and was required to drill at least two days a week for several hours after business hours. They were in fact mobilized once during their enlistment during the battle of Fort Stephens in July, 1864 when Jubal Early attacked Washington City. Both the regiments national and regimental flags were draped in Ford's Theater on April 16, 1865 when Lincoln was assassinated. The regiments national flag was suspended behind Lincoln and the regimental flag was draped over the balustrade in front of Lincolns seat. It was the regiments flag draped over the balustrade that John Wilkes Booth actually caught his spur on as he leapt over the railing and onto the stage. The Treasury Guards would serve up until October, 1865 when they were finally disbanded by Secretary of War Stanton when he issued Special Order 548. Although this subject stands dressed in civilian clothes, the Washington D.C. back mark and prominently placed musket indicate that he was a member of one of the Federal militia's created by Lincoln's order. He stands next to a table on which a large ledger rests while a dip pen is held in his hand and a small document protrudes from his breast pocket. This one is back marked by PERKINS of 520 Seventh St., Washington D.C. $275.00


Item #89891 Carte view of Colonel Samuel L. Buck of the 2nd New Jersey. Buck would be commissioned a major in the 2nd New Jersey in May of 1861. A promotion to lieutenant colonel would come in January, 1862 when he replaced Isaac Tucker. He served with distinction during the Peninsular Campaign receiving a promotion to colonel of the regiment after Tucker was killed during the Battle of Gaines Mill. Buck would command the 2nd New Jersey through the 2nd Battle of Bull Run, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. During the Battle of Chancellorsville he would lead the regiment in the VI Corps attack on Salem Church. Buck would assume command of the brigade after his commander, Henry Brown was wounded in the repulse from Salem Church. Serving in that position for only a few hours he was severely wounded when while crossing Banks Ford an enemy shell exploded startling his horse which threw him. He spent a good deal of time in Washington recovering and did not return to command until the fall of 1863. Back in the saddle Samuel would lead the regiment through the Mine Run Campaign and then the Overland Campaign in the spring of 1864. July would see the end of his term and he would be mustered out of service. This view is hand signed in ink on the back. Bottom corners are rounded otherwise a very nice carte view of a hard fought unit. $250.00


Item #22876 Stereoview of Confederate dead after the Battle of Gettysburg. This is labeled as Union soldiers on the card but that has been determined to be incorrect and is actually show's Confederate dead lined up for burial. This view was taken by Timothy O'Sullivan on July 5th near the southwestern edge of the Rose Woods. The view shows two rows of Confederate dead lined up for burial. The fact that these men have been laying on the battlefield in the July sun for a number of days is clearly evident. There must be at least 20 men shown here. Quite a sobering view of the cost of war and a constant reminder of these men lost on the battle field. $200.00

                            
        
Item #89132 Wonderful carte view of Harlan P. Partridge of the 53rd Massachusetts Infantry. The 53rd would serve as a 9 month regiment starting late in 1862. Harlan would muster as a sergeant in August, 1862 with Company B. That October he would be promoted to sergeant major which is the rank he wears here. The regiment would serve mainly in Louisiana and despite their short term of service they would see action in a number of engagements throughout the state. Harlan would eventually be mustered out in September, 1863. He is shown here dressed in his frock with legs crossed and sporting knee high boots. His sergeant majors insignia worn on the sleeve. Beautiful M1851 eagle waist plate can be clearly seen worn as he cradles a NCO M1840 sword in his lap. His cap rests on the table beside him with infantry horn pinned to the front and the numeral "53" clearly visible. A period ink id is written on the front and this one is signed on the reverse as well reading "Harlan P. Partridge Sergeant Major 53rd Reg Mass". Beautiful view! $300.00

 
Item #37990 Carte view identified as Henry Parker Worsley of Massachusetts. Henry would muster with Company G of the 4th Massachusetts Infantry during September, 1862. He is shown here dressed in his frock with his cap resting in his lap. A brass infantry horn is pinned to the top with the numeral "4" in the center. Company letter G is pinned above that. A pencil notation on the reverse notes that Henry died during the war. That doesn't seem to be the case however. Henry was detailed as a store keeper in the Commissary Department in Brashear City in March of 1863. On June 30th of that year Henry along with 5 commissioned officers and 138 enlisted men from the regiment were placed under arrest for refusing to do their duty on the grounds that their term of enlistment had expired. Henry along with the rest of the regiment were later discharged in September. The inscription may have been put there to hide the fact that he had been arrested. Great back mark on this one out of Taunton, Massachusetts featuring Lady Liberty standing with a shield. I have never seen this back mark before. Mint carte view with a rather interesting story. $200.00 


Item #68966 Carte view of a young Federal seated on an upholstered bench. Dressed in a untrimmed shell jacket and matching trousers with piping down the trouser seam. A handkerchief protrudes from between the buttons of his jacket. His cap rests in his lap with the rain cover on and a small star where the button would be affixed for the chin strap. He also has a small five-pointed star pinned to his collar as well. Possibly an indication of his affiliation with the 20th Corps. This one is back marked out of Sing Sing, New York. $275.00

                            
                      
    
Item #21785 Nice grouping attributed to Lieutenant George Berdan of the 7th New Jersey Volunteers. Consisting of a carte view of Berdan along with a small pocket bible which Berdan presented to his sister Mary in January, 1862. The carte view shows the lieutenant dressed in his frock and wearing the corresponding rank. George would muster as a corporal in Company G. starting in July, 1862. Three months later he would be promoted to 1st sergeant. A promotion to 2nd lieutenant would follow just 2 months later. Berdan would see action a slew of engagements as the regiment fought it out during the Peninsular Campaign. Yorktown, Seven Pines, Savage Station, Glendale, Malvern Hill and dozen others. George would manage to survive the blood bath of 1862 but would not be so lucky the following spring. While engaged at Chancellorsville he would be killed leading his men into battle. George would present the bible to his sister while the regiment was encamped along the Potomac near Budd's Ferry, Maryland. The inscription written in period ink reads, "Presented to Mary Berdan by her brother George. While camped on the Potomac shore near Budd's Ferry, Md". It is then dated January 9th, 1862. The regiment would be encamped here from November, 1861 through April, 1862. Some wear to the cover but otherwise a neat pair of items. $500.00 


Item #28955 Drop dead beautiful carte view of this Federal infantryman. This has to be one of the clearest carte views I have seen. Possibly a soldier of German origin. The image is so clear that you can visibly see the different textures of the material of the frock and kersey-weave army issue trousers. He sits with these massive calloused hands. You can even see the small "U.S." stamp on the flap of his cap box. Just a beautiful view from the famed Whitehurst Gallery of Washington. Pristine view of this bearded soldier. $200.00


Item#46512 Carte view of Colonel William Robertson of the 24th New Jersey Infantry. William would muster as a colonel in September of 1862. He would take part in the first assault on Marye's heights during the Battle of Fredericksburg. The regiment would not fare well losing 160 men during the fight. Another 40 would be lost at Chancellorsville. Robertson would manage to survive the battles and muster out in June of 1863 along with what remained of the regiment. This view is signed in period ink by William across the front bottom. Back marked out of Philadelphia. Super nice carte view with just the two bottom corners clipped. $300.00


Item #37867 Carte view identified as 29 year old farmer Lorenzo R. Putnam of Becket, Massachusetts. Lorenzo would muster with Co. F. of the 31st Massachusetts Infantry in November, 1861. He would re-enlist in mid February, 1864 with a promotion to corporal. During his service he would contract rheumatism and suffer from chronic dysentery like so many men did. It may account for his somewhat sickly appearance hear and almost ghostly gaze. He would manage to survive to be mustered out with the company in September, 1865 but would be plagued with problems for most of his life. Dressed in a standard issue sack coat, he wears as US waist belt and plate with his cap box. His corporal stripes are worn in this view which places it's date some time after his re-enlistment. The strap to his cartridge box is worn over the should minus the breast plate although you can see that the strap was cut to accommodate the plate. This one has a pencil id along the bottom front and was part of an album of images of men that belonged to the 31st Massachusetts. No back mark on this one but a wonderful image. $180.00


Item #67812 Carte view of Surgeon William W. L. Phillips of the 1st New Jersey Cavalry. William would muster with the regiment for a 3 year term beginning in the summer of 1861. This regiment participated in a total of 97 engagements!! 12 men from this regiment would be awarded the Medal of Honor. Based on their battle history it can be safely assumed that William was kept very busy in his role as surgeon. He apparently saw his fill of war time service and mustered out during the fall of 1864. This is the same view which is published on page 287 of "Jersey Cavaliers". Thee is also a pencil id on the back which also identifies him. Back marked out of Trenton. Nice view. $265.00

    
Item #34989 Carte view identified as husband and wife Charley and Maria Bates of Centralia, Illinois. Charley is dressed in this rather dapper checkered suit and overcoat while Maria is looking quite the beautiful young lady in this wonderful pattern dress and gloved hands. The names of their children are also listed on the back. This one had a tax stamp on the reverse that has fallen off. There were 3 men by the name of "Charles Bates" that would serve from the state of Illinois. I would presume based on Charley's age that he most certainly had some service during the war. Back marked out of Centralia, Illinois by Matthews and Russell. $65.00

                           
Item #79798 Rare carte view of Confederate General Thomas L. Rosser. He would begin the war serving as a 1st lieutenant and an instructor for the famed "Washington Artillery" of New Orleans. Rosser would command a company during the First Battle of Manassas during which he gained notoriety for shooting down one of McClellan's observation balloons. He would receive a promotion to captain for doing so. During the Peninsular Campaign he would command a battery during the Seven Days before being severely wounded at Mechancisville. Following his recovery he would receive promotions to lieutenant colonel and then colonel of the 5th Virginia cavalry just a few days later. Rosser would play an instrumental role during the Second Battle of Manassas, South Mountain as well as Antietam. Severely wounded again at Kelly's Ford he would be out of commission up until just before the Gettysburg Campaign. Here he would command a a regiment at Hanover and the fighting in the East Cavalry Field. Afterwards he would receive a promotion to brigadier general of "Laurel Brigade" which would gain fame under Turner Ashby. He would be wounded yet again at Trevilian Station where his brigade would capture a number of men serving under Custer. A close personal friend and West Point classmate of Rosser's. Turning the tables Custer then over ran Rosser's troops at the Battle of Tom's Brook and chased them for over 10 miles. During the process Custer captured General Rosser's private wardrobe wagon. Rosser had captured a pair of Custer's trousers earlier at Trevilian Station and now Custer had captured Rosser's uniform. A rather comical communication between the two friends ensued. He would receive a promotion to major general in November, 1864 earning the nickname "Savior of the Valley". In January, 1865 he took 300 men across the mountains in the middle of winter and managed to capture two full regiments while they sat in the works at Beverly, West Virginia. During the Appomattox Campaign he would capture Union general John Irvin Gregg. On the morning of April 9th he made a daring charge at Appomattox Court House and escaped with the majority of his command as Lee was in the process of surrendering his troops. The escape would be in vain and Rosser would surrender at Stauton, Virginia on May 4, 1865. Seldom seen view of this great commander. This one is back marked by Selby & McCauley who worked out of Maryland. $400.00


Item #21988 Carte view of George May Powell. Born in 1835, Powell would record quite a career. He would start by serving as a noted Treasury statistician. He would invent an improved rifle as well as an Army cot. Powell would be involved in 3 separate publishing companies that would combine both his business and social reform interests. He would found a number of social reform organizations and was noted as a public speaker on progressive and religious issues. George would also work as a writer and cartographer. The Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation currently holds 5 boxes of material pertaining to Powell which is housed in the New York State Library. He's also listed in "Who Was Who in America". Powell would also serve in one of the Washington D.C. Militia Regiments which all civilian members of the Executive Departments were required to participate in. This one has a pencil notation on the reverse reading "George May Powell Treasury Dept. Civil War Soldier". This one is by Brady. $90.00

She wears this wonderful dark silk dress ornamented with beaded fringe and lace applique on the shoulders, cuffs and pocket. There is a tax stamp on the reverse of this one which appears to be dated March 2, 1865. Rare back mark by William Shew of San Francisco. Super nice image. $75.00





Item #11687 This is a really neat pair of items. Carte view of Joseph Lawrence Jr. who served in the Treasury Guards of Washington D.C. Joseph would work in the 2nd Auditors Office of the Treasury Department during the war. In 1864 President Lincoln issued an order that all civilian members of the Executive Departments of the government located in Washington were to be formed into regiments for defense of the city should it face attack. All male Treasury employees between the age of 18 and 45 were required to join the Treasury Guards. The regiment was composed of roughly a 1000 members and was required to drill at least two days a week for several hours after business hours. They were in fact mobilized once during their enlistment during the battle of Fort Stephens in July, 1864 when Jubal Early attacked Washington City. Both the regiments national and regimental flags were draped in Ford's Theater on April 16, 1865 when Lincoln was assassinated. The regiments national flag was suspended behind Lincoln and the regimental flag was draped over the balustrade in front of Lincolns seat. It was the regiments flag draped over the balustrade that John Wilkes Booth actually caught his spur on as he leapt over the railing and onto the stage. The Treasury Guards would serve up until October, 1865 when they were finally disbanded by Secretary of War Stanton when he issued Special Order 548. This view shows Joseph dressed in civilian clothes. It is signed on the front in period ink "Very Truly Jos. Lawrence Jr. 1864". The back of the card is also signed "Treas'y Dept. 2nd Auditors Office. Washington D.C.". Also included is a cabinet card view of the Treasury Building and scans of the regiments two flags which are still in existence. Very unique grouping of a very little know unit that served in the nations defense. $150.00

 

Item #45241 Very nice carte view identified as Corporal George E. Wright of the 16th Massachusetts Infantry, 11th Massachusetts Infantry and later as a member of the VRC. George would first muster with the 16th Massachusetts on July 15, 1863 where he would serve for one year. He would however be wounded on May 6, 1864 while engaged at the Wilderness. Two months later he would transfer into the 11th Massachusetts in mid July. He would however be plagued by the injury received at the Wilderness and in May of 1865 he transferred once again. This time into the VRC. George would serve another 3 months but the injury continued to be an issue and August, 1865 he was discharged for a disability. This view dates to his time with the 11th Massachusetts. Very nice period ink id on the reverse which reads, "Corpl. Geo. E. Wright Co. F. 11th Regt Mass Vols. Winsted, Conn". Back marked out of Alexandria, Virginia with a tax stamp also. This one comes with a folder full of paper work as well. $165.00

  


Item #19876 Unique set of carte views of the same man. Both taken in the same studio. In one pose he is seen dressed in civilian clothes and the other dressed in uniform. This first image most likely shows him not long after being mustered out of service. The other dressed in a fine new uniform. These two views do not appear to have been taken on the same day but presumably within a very short time of one another. There are slight differences between the two views. The table cloth has been moved and while the cap is the same it now has the company letter pinned above the regimental number. You can see that he does wear the same corduroy vest with Goodyear buttons in both views. Sporting some killer checkered trousers in that civilian view. You can certainly see the difference in his demeanor between the two views. In the first view he sits slouched in his chair with a very hesitant look on his face. In the second view he sits erect and gives off an air of confidence. That's what military service does for you. Turns boys into men! These are both back marked by the same photographer and location by Bowers of Market Street in Massachusetts. Great pair! $225.00

In April, 1862 he would command an expedition against Biloxi and Ponchatoula, Mississippi. In November, 1862 he would be commissioned brigadier general of volunteers. That following July he would be struck by a rifle ball while assaulting Fort Wagner. The wounding would subsequently result in Strong contracting lockjaw and claiming his life 12 days later on July 30, 1863. This one has been trimmed on all sides. Back marked out of Portland, Maine. Don't see this one to often. $120.00  


Item #90912 Extremely nice carte view of Frederick E. Garnett of the 74th New York Infantry. Garnett would muster as a private just 12 days after the firing on Fort Sumter. Over the next 3 years he would rise through the ranks until attaining a final promotion to 1st lieutenant. The 74th was part of the Excelsior Brigade and saw heavy fighting in a number of engagements such as Seven Day's, Fair oaks and Fredericksburg. It participated in the second days fight at Gettysburg where it fought valiantly on the Emmitsburg Rd, losing some 89 men. Garnett would be counted among the wounded. He would manage to survive to wound and carry out the rest of his enlistment mustering out in July, 1864. This is a very nice view with good crisp corners and no fading. It is signed on the reverse as well in period ink by Garnett and bears the very desirable Gurney & Son back mark. $425.00

    
Item #57662 Carte view of Gettysburg casualty adjutant Charles H. Dougherty. Charles mustered into Co. A of the 7th New Jersey Infantry in August, 1861. Over the next couple of years he would receive promotions to sergeant major, 2nd and 1st lieutenant and finally to adjutant. He would fight in some of most severe battles of the war and survive. Barely. His first wound came at Malvern Hill. A second wound would follow when he was shot through the shoulder near the Trostle House on July 2nd at Gettysburg. Tempting fate once more he would be wounded at Spotsylvania Court House. The third time being the charm he was finally discharged for disability in September of 1864. This view is hand signed by Charles, "Yours Truly Charles R Dougherty 1st Lt and Adjt of NJV". Very nice view back marked out of Philadelphia. Quite the soldier. $550.00

                                            
Item #98143 Extremely rare view of General William Hervey Lamme Wallace. Considered by General Grant to have been one of the Union's greatest general 's. He would serve briefly during the Mexican-American War. Initially he would serve as a colonel with the 11th Illinois Infantry. He would command a brigade during the Battle of Fort Donelson where he would be praised for his coolness under fire. As a result of his actions at Fort Donelson he would receive a promotion to brigadier general of volunteers. During the expedition to Savannah, Tennessee he would take over command of General Charles Smith's division after Smith was injured in the leg. Wallace would command that division at the Battle of Shiloh. Despite his limited experience he would manage to hold off repeated Confederate assaults in the area of the Hornet's Nest for 6 hours. Eventually surrounded he finally gave the order to withdraw. Many of his men escaped but Wallace was severely wounded during the retreat. After the battle he was found clinging to life by his men after they had scoured the field looking for him. The general was first carried to his wife and then to General Grant's headquarters. A ball had entered the back of his head just behind the left ear and exited out his left eye. He would die in his wife's arms 3 days later. His last words were "we meet in heaven" before succumbing to the wound on April 10, 1862. He would be laid to rest in Ottawa, Illinois. His horse "Prince" who carried him into the battle is buried beside him. Seldom seen view of the general due to his short service. This one is back marked by President Lincoln's photographer from Fassett's  Gallery of Chicago. $700.00


Item #81642 Beautiful mounted albumen print of the famed Burnside Bridge located at Antietam. This view of the bridge was taken by Gardner not long after the armies had left this place. Damage to the bridge and the adjacent stone wall from the fierce battle which was waged here can still be seen. It looks very tranquil considering the hell that took place here. Titled across the bottom "Burnside Bridge, Across Antietam Creek, Maryland". This print is extremely large. The entire albumen card measures 18" x 13" so it's pretty big. The image itself measures 9" x 7". This is a very, very nice print. Don't get much nicer than this one. $800.00

                                      
Item #19821 Carte view identified as Joshua Simster Garsed of Co. B., 23rd Pennsylvania Volunteers, Birney's Zouaves. Joshua would muster with the famed regiment as a corporal during the first week of August 1861. Serving with the Army of the Potomac he saw no shortage of front line action. During that time he would rise to the rank of 1st Lieutenant only to be captured at White's Ford just two months after his promotion. He would spend the next month and a half confined at Libby Prison before being exchanged and rejoining his regiment. Joshua would slug it out with his men through the next few battles arriving at Gettysburg at 4 o'clock on July 2nd. On the 3rd at 5:30 in the afternoon a Whitworth round fired from a rebel position slammed into Garsed striking him between the right shoulder and neck which literally "tore him to pieces". Presumably he was struck during the intense Confederate bombardment that was meant to soften up Federal lines prior to the final grand charge for the Confederacy. Later that evening a shallow 2 foot grave was dug on the farm of Michael Frey and Garsed was laid to rest there. On the 11th his brother and father arrived on the field and had his body disinterred and embalmed before sending it back home to Philadelphia for burial there. He was finally laid to rest on the 23rd with full military honors in the Leveringon Cemetery of Philadelphia. This very image is published on page 107 of "History of the 23rd Pa. Volunteer Infantry". No back mark on this one but an extremely rare view. $1350.00


Item #90785 Super nice carte view of General Burnside. Probably one of the nicer Burnside views I have seen. Seated pose of the general with a great view of those iconic sideburns. Nice rich tones to this one. Back marked by Appleton & Co. of New York. $100.00


Item #21881 Carte view of Lieutenant John Hobensach of the 1st New Jersey Cavalry. Hobensach would join with the 1st New Jersey Cavalry during the summer of 1861 mustering in as a sergeant.

Once at Brandy Station and a second time at New Hope Church in 1864. This view shows the lieutenant dressed in his frock and sporting a pair of gauntlets. A Hardee hat is worn with cavalry insignia on the front. It was signed at one time along the front bottom but it was long ago trimmed off. Most likely to fit inside an album. This same image of him however is seen on page 266 of "Jersey Cavaliers". No back mark on this one. $110.00


Item #65432 Nice carte view of Carrington Raymond of Co. D, 7th New Jersey Volunteers. Raymond would be commissioned a 1st Lieut. in the 7th in October of 1861. He would serve with the regiment at Williamsburg, Seven Pines, Bristoe Station and a few others before his discharge for a promotion in late June of 1863. He took a promotion to major on that date and was commissioned into the US Volunteers Adjutant General Department where he stayed until his resignation on February 1st, 1865. This one is back marked by the Whitehurst Gallery that was located in Washington. His photo can be seen on page 229 of "Give it to Them Jersey Blues History of the 7th New Jersey Volunteers" by John Hayward. A very nice view! $175.00


Item #55754 Very nice carte view of Major David Vickers, Jr.  Vickers originally mustered with Co.

Confined at Macon, Georgia and later Columbia, South Carolina he would eventually be released. He ended his career with a promotion to colonel in March of 1865 and then again to Brevet Brig. General in May of that same year. After the war he spent time serving as a diplomat to Cuba before his death in June of 1908. This is a nice view of Vickers with a period ink identification along the bottom front. Back marked by Manger's of Philadelphia. No bends or creases in this one either! $250.00 


Item #67678 Exceptionally nice carte view of Colonel Isaac W. Starbird of the 19th Maine Infantry. Starbird would begin his enlistment as a captain in the 19th Maine starting in August 1862. This view however shows him wearing his full bird's shoulder bars. He served with the regiment up until his wounding at Gettysburg when the Confederates charged headlong into the 19th Maine positioned between Cemetery Hill and Little Round Top. He survived the wound and another stint in the hospital after becoming ill that same year. The year 1864 saw him receive promotions to major, lieut colonel and finally colonel in November 1864. Just days before the surrender he would be severely wounded while fighting at High Bridge, Virginia on April 6, 1865. The next day he would receive a brevet to brig. general.

Item #54278 This is a neat pair of items. It's a carte view of Confederate General William Wickham of Virginia. Included with the view is the original envelope from the Hall's Art Gallery and Studio located in Virginia in which the image was found.  These came directly out of General Wickham's personal library from his estate which was sold in it's entirety several years ago. He fought in several major engagements including Manassas, Chancellorsville, Brandy Station, Gettysburg among several others and was severely wounded by a saber blow at Williamsburg. He later resigned his commission in 1864 to take a seat in the Second Confederate Congress. The carte view is a little faint and was highlighted by the artist at the time to apparently make up for some of the lightness of the image. I would assume this was taken probably sometime in 1864 or 65 and with the blockade taking effect the necessary products for image production were very lacking by this time. Hence the need for the artist to manually highlight the image. Great pair of items and which certainly handled by General Wickham himself! $450.00  


Item #68732 Carte view of Corporal George W. Brown who served in both the 157th and 191st Pennsylvania Infantry and Corporal Edwin S. Kellogg of the 89th New York Infantry. Both men would lose their left arms at Petersburg. There are a number of different views of these two. Edwin Kellogg stands to the right dressed in his New York Jacket with the sleeve pinned up and holding a musket. Brown stands next to him cradling the flag keeping it from touching the ground. They took a number of different views which were sold to help raise money. This one has an old pencil inscription on the reverse which says "Pitisburg June 18, 1864" marking the date when the two men were wounded. Probably written by one of the men I'm sure. Back marked out of Pottsville, PA. $395.00

      
Item #57662 Carte view of adjutant Charles H. Dougherty. Charles mustered into Co. A of the 7th New Jersey Infantry in August, 1861. Over the next couple of years he would receive promotions to sergeant major, 2nd and 1st lieutenant and finally to adjutant. He would fight in some of most severe battles of the war and survive. Barely. His first wound came at Malvern Hill. A second wound would follow when he was shot through the shoulder near the Trostle House on July 2nd at Gettysburg. Tempting fate once more he would be wounded at Spotsylvania Court House. The third time being the charm he was finally discharged for disability in September of 1864. This view is hand signed by Charles, "Yours Truly Charles R Dougherty 1st Lt and Adjt of NJV". Very nice view back marked out of Philadelphia. Quite the soldier. $550.00
            

Item #08121 Carte view of Colonel Issac Wistar. Early in 1861 after the outbreak of war Wistar raised a company of men which became part of the 1st California Regiment. Originally serving as a captain of that regiment he took a promotion to lieut. colonel on June 28th. Wistar would show his leadership abilities early on. The regiment would see their first real action on October 21st during the Battle of Ball's Bluff. Wistar would assume command of the regiment after Colonel Baker was struck down at the head of the regiment. Colonel Wistar would not escape injury either during the onslaught. He would be seriously wounded struck in the right elbow, then his jaw and finally his thigh. Of the 570 seventy officers and men taken into the battle only 375 came out. As a result the 1st California regiment became the the 71st Pennsylvania. He would fair no better at Antietam. This time he was struck in the left arm. Two months later he would receive a promotion to brigadier general and was assigned brigade command of the VII Corps. On May 7th, 1864 he began leading a brigade during the Bermuda Hundred Campaign but would be relieved of duty just 11 days later. Shortly afterwards he submitted his resignation ending his military career. No back mark on this one. $225.00

Each man is actually playing against himself. Nice early use of trick photography. None of the men are identified unfortunately. Very nice condition and back marked out of Boston. $275.00
