 Item #56113 Carte view identified as Adelbert A. Carrier of the 143rd New York Volunteer Infantry. Adelbert would muster with the regiment starting in August, 1862 falling into ranks with the fellow men of Company H. The regiment would be quite active during their service seeing action in no less than 15 major engagements beginning with the Siege of Suffolk. They would see hard fighting at Missionary Ridge, Resaca, Kennesaw Mountain and many other before taking part in Sherman's March to the Sea. Adelbert appears to have survived unscathed. He would be mustered out of service in May, 1865. This view dates to his time of discharge and the regiment was mustered out of service in Nashville. Nice period ink inscription on the reverse reading "Yours Truly Adelbert A. Carrier. Liberty, Sullivan Co. N.Y.". Back marked out of Nashville. $145.00 SALE PENDING!
 

                      

Item #18812 Albumen view of a Federal soldier enjoying some down time. Obviously taken during the warmer months this soldier strikes this pose with the sleeves of his shirt rolled up to the elbow. His pocket watch chain can be seen pinned to the waist band of his trousers with the watch itself held in the pocket opposite. A large silk cravat is worn along with a pair of striped suspenders. His cap is worn as well as he holds a pipe clenched in his teeth. This one measures 6" x 8". The scribble marks in the lower left hand corner are not on the image itself but must have been scratched into the original plate. The name "Basher" is written on the reverse along with some numbers and other initials. What it pertains to I do not know. No frame for this one. $300.00

                                                           
         
Item #28766 Carte view of Captain Joseph Johnson Wagoner of the 19th U.S. Infantry. An Ohio native, Joseph would muster as a private in Company B during September, 1861. He would be quickly promoted to 1st sergeant before receiving a promotion to 2nd lieutenant two months later. A promotion to 1st lieutenant would come in September, 1862. For his actions during the Atlanta Campaign, Joseph would receive a brevet promotion to captain in September, 1864. December, 1864 would see him serving as quarter master before formally receiving a promotion to captain in June, 1865. He would receive a brevet promotion to major on the same day. Following the war he would continue to serve in the US Army until his death in September, 1866. This view has a nice period pencil inscription on the reverse reading "Joseph Johnson Wagoner Brevet Major, Captain 19th U.S.A". Back marked out of Detroit, Michigan. $135.00


Item #44531 Rare carte view of the doomed steamer Sultana. Famous view of the ship taken in Helena, Arkansas while at dock. This would be the last time the ship would be photographed. Just hours later nothing would remain of her and half of the men on board would lose their lives. The ship would take on some 2000 men just released from Confederate prisons while moored at Vicksburg. It was designed to carry no more than 376 passengers. Prior to reaching Vicksburg one of the boilers sprung a leak. While moored there and as men boarded the ship a mechanic was brought on board to repair the leaky boiler. The mechanic wanted to cut out the section of the boiler which had sprung a leak but the captain protested. Doing so would take several days and by that time the men on board would have found other transportation costing the captain a large loss of money. Instead they opted for a hastily made repair. Heavily overladen with men and fighting one of the worst spring floods in the rivers recorded history, the Sultana pushed up river for two days. On April 27th at 2 am it's boiler exploded. What resulted was one of the worst maritime disasters in history. Estimates vary but it is believed that roughly a 1000 men perished including the Sultana's captain. The exact cause of the blast is unknown. One theory is that a Confederate agent planted a bomb in one of the boilers or it could have been a result of the damaged boiler. Regardless one of the war's most disastrous incidents and a seldom seen view. $850.00 SALE PENDING!


Item #88921 Outstanding carte view of the levee and Federal pontoon bridge taken at Donaldsonville, Louisiana. So much going on in this view! Two women can be seen walking across the pontoon bridge dressed in hoop skirts and veils. A number of teamsters can be seen in various locations throughout the view pulling wagons loaded with men and supplies. Countless, hastily constructed shacks dot the scene offering shelter for troops from the blistering sun and rain. A very shoddy lean-too can be seen placed just in front of the bridge which probably offers shelter the the troops guarding the bridge. The levee can be seen in the background with the upper portions of the buildings sticking up over the top of the levee. Super neat view. This view was part of series of views photographers McPherson & Oliver did while in Donaldsonville. It is back marked by them out of Baton Rouge. $350.00


Item #80998 Wonderful carte view identified as Thomas E. Cutter of the 35th Massachusetts Infantry. Cutter would muster as a corporal in Company B starting in August, 1862. He would receive promotions to quarter master sergeant, quartermaster and 1st lieutenant during his tenure with the regiment. His service would come to an end in June, 1865 when he was mustered out. Thomas is shown here wearing his lieutenants shoulder boards while serving as the regimental quartermaster. Beautiful period ink inscription on the reverse reading "Lt. Cutter R.Q.M. 35 Mass Before Petersburg, Va Mch 6/65". Back marked out of Newburyport, Massachusetts. Very nice view. $200.00


Item #89776 Beautiful carte view of 1st Lieutenant William Cutting Stockdale of the 17th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. William would initially muster as a private with Company H. on May 25, 1861. The next day he was promoted to 4th corporal. He would be present for duty through out the Western Theater from May, 1861 through July, 1862. Promoted to 3rd sergeant in January, 1862. To sergeant major in April, 1862 and then to 2nd lieutenant just a few days later. His promotion to 1st lieutenant would come shortly thereafter. From July, 1862 up until October of that year he would be on detached duty working as a recruiting officer. In December he would begin serving as Acting Adjutant for the regiment. On May 27, 1863 William would receive a foot wound while engaged during the Siege of Port Gibson and take a month to recover. He would return to the regiment in July and remain there until November when he was once again on detached duty working as a recruiting officer. William would return to the regiment during the spring of 1864 and remain there until being mustered out of service in June, 1864. Beautiful view of William casually wearing his frock unbuttoned with the rank of lieutenant. Wonderfully clear image as the eagle buttons are plainly visible. Embroidered "US" insignia on the front of the cap. This one has a nice period ink inscription along the front bottom reading "Yours Truly Wm. C. Stockdale". No back mark on this one however. It does comes with a large folder full of research material. Wonderful view. $275.00 


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 shouldered 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 #43412 Nice carte view of four Federal officers seated around a table enjoying a game of poker. This is actually a use of trick photography. There are only 2 men sitting at the table in reality. 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


Item #77681 Signed carte view identified as Surgeon Charles B. Tompkins of Illinois. Tompkins would initially enlist in Company H of the 17th Illinois Infantry as a corporal in late May, 1861. He would receive a promotion to assistant surgeon and then a promotion to surgeon in July, 1863. He would remain in that position until the regiment was mustered out of service in June, 1864. That December he would enlist with the 55th Illinois Infantry and receive a commission as surgeon of the regiment. Tompkins would be present with the regiment for the duration of their service until being discharged in August, 1865. While with the 17th Illinois I am sure Tompkins skills would be tested. The regiment would be engaged during the Battle of Shiloh and suffer severely with a 130 men killed or wounded in that battle alone. They would fight in a number of other engagements as well. The 55th would see action in a considerable number of engagements as well right up until the end of the war. This one has a nice period ink inscription across the front bottom reading "Yours Truly C. B. Tompkins" This view would date to his time with the 55th Illinois. It is back marked out of Memphis Tennessee. The regiment would move to Memphis late in September, 1864 and see service in the vicinity. Slightly trimmed. This one does come with a folder full of research material. $150.00

   
Item #89009 Extremely rare carte view of all identified members of the Iron Brigade band. The center focal point of this carte view a photograph of all the band members instruments. It is then surrounded by vignette views of each band member. The reverse of the card then has a period ink inscription identifying each member with a notation "Band of 1st Brig. 3rd Division. 5th C.". The band was made up of members from the 2nd, 6th and 7th Wisconsin as well as the 19th Indiana Infantry and 24th Michigan Infantry. At Gettysburg on July 1st, James Sullivan of the 6th Wisconsin noted, "On July 1, with Gettysburg in sight, the Brigade band struck up "Red, White and Blue". When fire broke out the band swung out to one side and began "Yankee Doodle" in double quick time and "Forward, double quick!" sang out Colonel Rufus Dawes and the battle commenced". Later that day the band members would work as nurses and stretcher bearers tending to the wounded. This one has a desirable back mark by Gettysburg photographers Tyson's Brother and bears a cancelled tax stamp dated 1864. This one also comes with the book "An Irishman in the Iron Brigade" written by James Sullivan. This one is slightly faded on the front but the inscriptions on the reverse are nice and bold and very legible. Very rare carte view of one of the most recognizable units of the war! $1350.00

  Item #55132 Carte view identified as Lieutenant James Newton Dickson of the famed 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry better known by their moniker, "Rush's Lancers". At the outbreak of war James would muster into the "Commonwealth Artillery" of Philadelphia as a corporal. Shortly afterwards he would be commissioned into Company A of the 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry beginning in October, 1861 as a 2nd lieutenant. He would be promoted to 1st lieutenant and Commissary of Field Subsistence in April, 1862. A promotion to captain would come on March 1, 1863. James would serve with the regiment all through the Peninsular Campaign. He would be present at all of the major battles in which the regiment would be engaged starting with Yorktown. South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg and more would be added to the list of engagements. During the Stoneman's Raid he was credited with capturing a captain with the 48th Mississippi Infantry. He would however resign in January, 1864. Apparently the idleness of sitting on the sidelines while a war raged got the better of him and he would take a commission as a lieutenant with the 3rd U.S. Artillery for a short time. This one is signed on the back in Dickson's hand. Very nice view of this officer from a hard fought and famous unit. $300.00                       


Item #37634 Set of two carte views of the same soldier. Unfortunately he is not identified. He is shown to the right dressed in his military frock. The second view shows him dressed in civilian attire. A 2nd Corps badge is pinned to his jacket below another badge. Possibly of Masonic significance. A badge is also pinned to the lapel of his jacket. The first is back marked out of Philadelphia. The other out of Washington D.C. $100.00


Item #36633 Carte view identified as Captain William Hoit Nash. William would enlist as a 1st lieutenant in early March, 1862. In November of that year he would be promoted to captain and commissioned into the US Volunteers Commissary Department where he would spend the entire war. He would receive a brevet to major in March, 1865 and would be discharged near the end of 1865. William would have subsequent service in the United States Army from 1865 until his eventual retirement from the service in 1898. This view is hand signed by Nash along the front bottom reading "W. H. Nash Capt & C.S.". Back marked out of Cincinnati. $125.00


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 #19090 Post war cabinet card of this unidentified sailor. Dressed in this double breasted frock which bears post war navy buttons. A post war GAR badge is pinned to the breast of the coat as well. This one is marked by Levilly & Co. which was an Indiana photographer. Crystal clear view. $65.00


Item #58851 Rare carte view of Colonel Charles William Tilden of both the 2nd Maine and 16th Maine Infantry. Tilden would be commissioned a 1st lieutenant in the 2nd Maine Infantry near the end of May, 1861. Promoted to captain in June, 1861. A year later he would be discharged for a promotion to lieutenant colonel in the 16th Maine. In January, 1863 he would make a full colonel. Tilden was an exceptional leader, extremely intelligent and courageous to a fault. He would see his first action during the First Battle of Bull Run. His courageous nature would come to light during the battle as he volunteered to retrieve fallen men from the field while Confederate sharpshooters were still firing at men on the field. After the battle Tilden was sent home to Maine to raise the 16th Maine Infantry who he would later command. On July 1st at Gettysburg Tilden was given orders to "blunt the attack" of Confederate troops who were streaming in from Harrisburg. Ordered to hold their position at all costs to allow other Federal regiments to retreat from the field, the 16th basically became the sacrificial lamb of the Federal Army. With no hope of support or reinforcements it was a suicide mission. Surrounded on all four sides the 16th stubbornly fought on. The regiment would suffer an 81% casualty rate. Only 40 men remained of the 275 engaged. Tilden and the remainder of his men would be captured. He would be confined at Macon, Georgia and then Columbia, South Carolina before making his escape through a tunnel and returning to his regiment. Tilden would be captured again at Petersburg but would once more manage to escape and return to his men. Brevetted to brigadier general in March, 1865 he would continue to serve up until June of that year before eventually receiving his discharge. This view dates to his time with the 2nd Maine. His cap is seen resting on the table beside him with the numeral "2" pinned to the cap. Back marked out of Bangor, Maine. Seldom seen view of this hero of Gettysburg. $650.00


Item #14473 Pristine war date carte view of Confederate General George Washington Custis Lee. Vignette view of the general. The eldest son of General Robert E. Lee. An intelligent and well educated man, Custis would graduate from West Point first in his class in 1854. Initially he would serve in the United States Army commissioned in the Corps of Engineers. After Virginia's succession from the Union in 1861 he would resign his position following in his fathers foot steps two weeks later. Offering his services to the Confederate States, Custis was commissioned a captain in the summer of 1861. He would work in the Confederate Engineers helping to construct fortifications around Richmond before accepting a position as aide-de-camp to Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Promoted to colonel he would serve in that position for the next 3 years. Following his father appointment to command the Army of Northern Virginia, Custis was put in charge of supervising the engineers at Drewry's Bluff. Promoted to brigadier general in June, 1863 he longed for field command. He would remain loyal to Davis at Lee's request but was given command of the troops in Richmond during the Gettysburg Campaign. Custis was again placed in command of Richmond's home defenses in 1864 against Grant's and Benjamin Butler's forces. He did so well he was given command of Richmond's eastern defenses at Chaffins Bluff. He would remain here for the next several months before being promoted to major general. Just days before the end of the war he was finally given field command of troops during the Battle of Sayler's Creek only to be captured on April 6th. Post war he would serve as the 9th president of the esteemed Washington & Lee University. This is a war date view back marked by southern photographers Lumpkin & Tomlinson of Richmond. Very desirable and rare Confederate back mark. Absolutely mint view! $400.00

Item #77373 Carte view of lieutenant Allen G. Shepard of the 33rd Massachusetts. Shepard would muster with Company K as a sergeant in July, 1862. In November of that year he would be promoted to 1st sergeant. A promotion to sergeant major would come in March of 1863 followed by a promotion to 2nd lieutenant two months later. A final promotion to 1st lieutenant would come in October, 1863. He held the rank of 1st lieutenant at the time of this sitting. You can just slightly see his shoulder boards worn in this view. The 33rd would see considerable action beginning at Chancellorsville. It would be followed by no less than 17 more engagements. This view has a pencil inscription across the front bottom but there is at least one other known view of Shepherd out there as a lieutenant. Back marked out of West Lynn, Massachusetts. $110.00




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 #77578 Wonderful carte view of Major Karl VonWedell of the 68th New York Infantry and an unknown member of the regiment on sentry duty. This view came out of an album of members from the 68th New York. VonWedell would muster as a corporal with the regiment in August, 1861. He would receive promotions to 2nd lieutenant, 1st lieutenant, captain and finally major over the next two years. He would be discharged in mid January, 1863. This view was taken in the vicinity of Washington where the regiment would remain until the spring of 1862. The major is shown here with the rank of 2nd lieutenant which he would receive in August, 1861. Great view taken in the field. His cap rests on the seat of a camp chair situated between the two men. The sentry stands with his musket held at the shoulder and wearing a M1858 Hardee hat. Behind him can be seen a stand of muskets with a canteen and haversack hung off the bayonets and a large drum in the center. Just a killer view by Brady. $495.00

 
Item #48799 Carte view of yank soldier identified as George Bechtel. Nice priod ink inscription on the back reading "Yours truly, George W. Bechtel". This is possibly George W. Bechtel who served with the 2nd Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery. There are only a couple of possible matches. The other possible match would serve in the 52nd Pennsylvania Infantry and would be discharged for a disability after being diagnosed with "Deafness". No back mark. $65.00


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

 
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. 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 #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 #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 #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 #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 #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. B of the 3rd New Jersey Infantry in late May of 1861 but within days received a promotion to captain of Co. A of that same regiment. At the end of September of 1863 he was discharged for a promotion to Major with the 4th New Jersey Infantry. He would serve with the 4th up until his capture on May 12, 1864 while engaged at Spotsylvania Court House. 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 #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
