The Civil War
Confederate Carte De Visites
 


9266 - SIGNED JEFFERSON DAVIS, Carte de Visite by Lumpkin and Company, Richmond, VA. Bust pose from life as President of the Confederate States, bold black ink signature of Jefferson Davis on the bottom of the albumen. Inscribed on the verso that it was signed in 1867-8 for the benefit of Dr. C. H. Read and the CDV was purchased from C. G. Jewell of this city [Richmond]. The same pose of Davis as seen on the Confederate $50 bill with his portrait [1861-64]. Good contrast to the photo, bold signature a 10/10! Trifle trim to top of card. Much rarer that signed CDV's of Lee.............$2,995.00




9268 - BELLE BOYD, THE CONFEDERATE SPY
, Carte de Visite of Belle Boyd as taken during the Civil War years slightly facing left. No imprint but excellent definition. On the verso of this gold bordered card is a CDV albumen of General Ewell in Confederate uniform. This application is probably a salesman's sample card illustrating different personages on one card. Two images but Ewell image is basically a free image, Belle Boyd is very scarce and desirable...........
$425.00





9273 - ROBERT E. LEE
, Carte de Visite, Olsen of Philadelphia, PA. A profile view of Lee in uniform of Lee originally taken by Vannerson in Richmond in early 1864. This was one of the photographs used by Valentine in the design of Valentine's statue of Lee. Large bust pose, good strong contrast, light stain to top right corner but not obtrusive......................................
$250.00






9274 - ROBERT E. LEE
, "IN ALL HIS MARTIAL SPLENDOR", Carte de Visite by Selden & Ennis of Richmond, taken my Julian Vannerson in early 1864 of Lee in his formal uniform in a full standing pose and used by Edward V. Valentine and sent through the Federal blackade for use in his statue of Lee and known as the "blockade portrait". Sharp, exceptional condition.....................................................
$1,500.00

9275 - ROBERT E. LEE, Lee at Richmond, 10" X 12" original photo with Brady & Co. gold imprint dated 1865, taken at Richmond in mid April 1865, one of six poses taken by Brady, this one known as Pose #5 in Dr. Hopkins' book on Lee. Lee stands next to a chair in front of a large paneled door. Brady used a door in Lee's rental house in Richmond as a backdrop. This is the last photo [series of six images] that shows Lee in a Confederate uniform. Oval wet plate albumen within a gold border on original cardstock. Excellent clarity. Minor blems at top of oval and one small one near his hat, otherwise fine and with good color. I have seen these Brady marked large albumens sell as high as $4000. This splendid photograph is in an original antique frame [reframed with acid-free double matting].........................................SOLD


9278 - GENERAL JOHN B. HOOD
, Carte de Visite by Anthony. Bust pose in Confederate uniform facing to the right. Excellent detail to this early Anthony card, sharp details, light tone, Commanded the Army of the Tennessee, Hood had a reputation for bravery and aggressiveness that sometimes bordered on recklessness. Arguably one of the best brigade and division commanders in the Confederate States Army, Hood became increasingly ineffective as he was promoted to lead larger, independent commands late in the war, and his career was marred by his decisive defeats leading an army in the Atlanta Campaign and the Franklin-Nashville Campaign. Fine....................................................
SOLD

9279 - GENERAL A. P. HILL, Carte de Visite by Anthony. Bust pose in Confederate uniform. The rarer of the "Anthony" poses of Hood obviously pirated from the Vannerson pose of Hill as the usual Hill "Anthony" pose is heavily touched up. This pose is from life. Ambrose Powell Hill, Jr. (November 9, 1825 - April 2, 1865), was a career U.S. Army officer in the Mexican-American War and Seminole Wars and a Confederate general in the American Civil War. He gained early fame as the commander of the "Light Division" in the Seven Days Battles and became one of Stonewall Jackson's ablest subordinates, distinguishing himself in the 1862 battles of Cedar Mountain, Second Bull Run, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. Following Jackson's death in May 1863 at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Hill was promoted to lieutenant general and commanded the Third Corps of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, which he led in the Gettysburg Campaign and the fall campaigns of 1863. His command of the corps in 1864-65 was interrupted on multiple occasions by illness, from which he did not return until just before the end of the war, when he was killed during the Union Army offensive at the Third Battle of Petersburg. This card is quite fresh in appearance with some lightness to the bust of Hill. If bolder, a $450 card. Quite reasonable..........................................................$250.00

9280 - GENERAL J. E. B. STUART, Carte de Visite by Anthony, vignette version of the seated pose in Confederate uniform holding his sword. Excellent contrast to the albumen photo. Arguably Stuart's most famous campaign, Gettysburg, was marred when he was surprised by a Union cavalry attack at the Battle of Bandy Station and by his separation from Lee's army for an extended period, leaving Lee unaware of Union troop movements and contributing to the Confederate defeat at the Battle of Gettysburg. Stuart received significant criticism from the Southern press as well as the post-bellum proponents of the Lost Cause movement, but historians have failed to agree on whether Stuart's exploit was entirely the fault of his judgment or simply bad luck and Lee's less-than-explicit orders. During the 1864 Overland Campaign, Union Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan's cavalry launched an offensive to defeat Stuart, who was mortally wounded at the Battle of Yellow Tavern. His widowed wife wore black for the rest of her life in remembrance of her deceased husband. As described an excellent photo, old mounting traits on verso unaffecting the imprint of Anthony...........................................................$395.00

9281 - THE HEROES OF MANASSAS, Carte de Visite by Selden [Richmond], a photograph taken by Ennis of the famous W. B. Cox painting showing Beauregard, Jackson Johnston, Colonel Turner Ashby, and Jefferson Davis on horseback with a train bringing up re-enforcements of General E. Kirby Smith who turned the tide in the battle. Tips or the card slightly rounded to insert into an album. Very good..........................................SOLD







9282 - ALEXANDER STEPHENS, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE CONFEDERACY
, Carte de Visite by Appleton, Civil War vintage view of Stephens as Vice President of the Confederate States 1861- 65. Nice details.....................................................
$195.00










9283 - VARINA DAVIS, WIFE OF JEFFERSON DAVIS
, Carte de Visite by Brady/Washington, from life rare pose of Varina Davis facing near profile to the right. This is one of the few from life images of Varina taken just after the war by Mathew Brady. Most images seen on the market are the engraving pose in the evening gown. Excellent quality of the image, tips of card slightly rounded for easy insertion in a album.........................................
$295.00


9284 - JOSEPH EMORY DAVIS, ELDER BROTHER OF JEFFERSON DAVIS, Carte de Visite by George W. Barnes, by Joseph Emory Davis (10 December 1784 - 18 September 1870) was a United States (and Confederate States of America) lawyer and planter. He was the elder brother of C. S. A.. President Jefferson Davis. In 1820, he moved to Natchez, Mississippi, and formed a co-partnership with Thomas B. Reed, then the leader of the Mississippi bar. In 1827, he decided to retire from law in order to become a planter. The same year, he married Eliza Van Benthuysen. As a planter, he was also very successful, and at the beginning of the American Civil War he possessed one of the finest plantations on the Mississippi River, known as Hurricane Plantation. He also put together one of the best private libraries in the South. He was a slave owner, and one of his slaves was Ben Montgomery who was eventually put in charge of part of the operation of the plantation, which was unusual at the time. During the war, he was driven from his home with his family, and endured many hardships. He returned to Vicksburg at its close, and, after a controversy with the officers of the Freedmen's Bureau, regained possession of his estate, but continued to reside in the city of Vicksburg, in a house known as Anchuca. Davis was noted for his benevolence, and many youths of both sexes were indebted to him for a liberal education. He died in that city in 1870. Jefferson Davis looked to his older brother as a mentor. A view of Davis probably 1861-62 or possibly taken from a cased image showing the close resemblance he had with his younger brother Jefferson. The only view of Davis apparently is a 1869 photo of Davis with a long straggly beard looking in all health the year before his death in 1870. Ex John O'Brian Collection of Davis photographs. Very fine..............................................................$200.00


7506 - GENERAL A. P. HILL, Carte de Visite, a larger than normal format view of Hill in Confederate uniform. No back imprint but from life and quite attractive. Ambrose Powell Hill, Jr. (November 9, 1825 - April 2, 1865), was a career U.S. Army officer in the Mexican-American War and Seminole Wars and a Confederate general in the American Civil War. He gained early fame as the commander of the "Light Division" in the Seven Days Battles and became one of Stonewall Jackson's ablest subordinates, distinguishing himself in the 1862 battles of Cedar Mountain, Second Bull Run, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. Following Jackson's death in May 1863 at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Hill was promoted to lieutenant general and commanded the Third Corps of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, which he led in the Gettysburg Campaign and the fall campaigns of 1863. His command of the corps in 1864-65 was interrupted on multiple occasions by illness, from which he did not return until just before the end of the war, when he was killed during the Union Army offensive at the Third Battle of Petersburg..............................................$295.00

A huge bust pose much larger than the usual Anthony views of the same pose............................................................
$350.00



7125 - GENERAL J. E. B. STUART
, Carte de Visite, no imprint. A large bust view of Jeb Stuart facing forward in uniform. Although the card has no imprint, the image quality is excellent as it came from a Confederate album which contained numerous high quality images with back marks. The card has some shadows to the right of the image that appear to be in the original negative that in no way impair Stuart's image. On the verso are traces of old brown glue stains that do not impair the card's appeal on the obverse. An unusually large image of Stuart.......................................................
$450.00






7126 - GENERAL JOHN B. FLOYD, VIRGINIA

790 - THOMAS J. "STONEWALL JACKSON", from life Carte de Visite, no imprint. Taken in Winchester, November 1862 attributed to Nathaniel Routzahn. Excellent facial detail. A variation of the waist up pose taken by him showing the "crooked" button. On the verso is a pair of unused 10 Cent Confederate stamps [Scott #11]. Issued in 1864. Light green. Confederate General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson gazes straight ahead in this photograph made in November 1862. Jackson sat for this portrait in Nathaniel Routzahn's photographic studio in Winchester. When Jackson first arrived for the sitting he was missing a button on his uniform jacket, so the general took off his jacket and sewed one on himself -- albeit crookedly. The misaligned button was the fourth one down on the general's left. A minister who accompanied him to the sitting joked that while Jackson could successfully track down and destroy enemy forces, he was unable to perform the simple task of sewing on a button in a straight line. Six months later, Jackson was accidentally wounded by his own men during the Battle of Chancellorsville, had his left arm amputated, and then died after developing pneumonia. A very rare photo seldom seen on the market............................................................$1,975.00

Excellent quality with nice rich tones. Scarce and very desirable. (1821 - 63) after attending the University of Nashville, and studying law, he became the editor of the Columbus, Mississippi Democrat. He served in the Mexican War as an enlisted man and officer, and was elected to Congress from Mississippi in 1852, where he vehemently upheld the cause of states' rights until his resignation upon the secession of Mississippi from the Union. Barksdale was at first appointed quartermaster general of Mississippi; then entered Confederate service as colonel of the 13th Mississippi Infantry, which he commanded at 1st Manassas. As a regimental commander and subsequently as a brigadier general, to rank from Aug. 12, 1862, he distinguished himself on all the early battlefields of the Army of Northern Virginia. At Fredericksburg, his Mississippians frustrated for hours the attempts of Ambrose E. Burnside's engineers to build their pontoon bridges across the Rappahannock. On July 2, 1863, during the second day's fighting at Gettysburg, Barksdale was mortally wounded leading his Mississippi Brigade, and died the next day within the Union lines.

He organized the Lexington Rifles in 1857, and when the Civil War broke out, he led his command to join the Confederacy. From then until his death his exploits made him one of the legendary figures of the Confederacy. He was promoted to colonel of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry on April 4, 1862, and brigadier general on December 11th. His series of raids into Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio earned him a vote of thanks from the Confederate Congress and the undying hatred of a large segment of the frightened Northern population. On his most famous raid north of the Ohio in 1863, he was captured near New Lisbon and imprisoned in the Ohio State Penitentiary with several of his officers. But no prison could hold the notorious Confederate raider as he soon escaped. On the night of September 3, 1864, while enroute to attack Union forces near Knoxville, he camped near Greenville, TN.

He enlisted as a private in the 7th Tennessee Cavalry and raised and equipped at his own expense a battalion of mounted troops, of which he was elected lieutenant colonel in October 1861. As the war progressed, he took part in numerous engagements, and his fame as a cavalry commander became legendary and his exploits went unabated until the end of the war. Union General William T. Sherman was quoted as saying, " that devil Forrest must be hunted down and killed if it costs ten thousand lives and bankrupts the Federal Treasury." During the course of the Civil War, Forrest had 29 horses shot out from under him, killed or seriously maimed at least 30 enemy soldiers in hand to hand combat, and himself suffered 4 wounds. In April 1867, he was elected Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Clan. In 1868, he became President of the Selma, Marion & Memphis Railroad.

In 1825 at age 19, Maury joined the United States Navy as a midshipman on board the frigate USS Brandywine. Almost immediately he began to study the seas and record methods of navigation. When a leg injury left him unfit for sea duty, Maury devoted his time to the study of navigation, meteorology, winds, and currents. he became Superintendent of the U.S. Naval Observatory and head of the Depot of Charts and Instruments. Here, Maury studied thousands of ships' logs and charts. He published the Wind and Current Chart of the North Atlantic, which showed sailors how to use the ocean's currents and winds to their advantage and drastically reduced the length of ocean voyages. Maury's uniform system of recording oceanographic data was adopted by navies and merchant marines around the world and was used to develop charts for all the major trade routes. With the outbreak of the Civil War, Maury, a Virginian, resigned his commission as a US Navy commander and joined the Confederacy. He spent the war in the South, as well as aboard in Great Britain, Ireland, and France.

21319 - GENERAL LOUIS WIGFALL, Carte de Visite by Fredericks, NY. Louis Trezevant Wigfall (April 21, 1816 - February 18, 1874) was an American politician from Texas who served as a member of the Texas Legislature, United States, Senate, and Confederate Senate. Wigfall was among a group of leading secessionists known as Fire-Eaters, advocating the preservation and expansion of an aristocratic agricultural society based on slave labor. He briefly served as a Confederate Brigadier General of the Texas Brigade at the outset of the American Civil War before taking his seat in the Confederate Senate. Wigfall's reputation for oratory and hard-drinking, along with a combative nature and high-minded sense of personal honor made him one of the more imposing political figures of his time. In the days leading up to the start of hostilities, Wigfall advocated an attack on Fort Sumter and Fort Pickens in Florida to prompt Virginia and other upper southern states to join the Confederacy. He arrived in Charleston, South Carolina, as the siege of Fort Sumter commenced. According to diarist Mary Chesnut, he was the only "thoroughly happy person I see." While serving as an aide to General Beauregard during the bombardment of Fort Sumter, and without authorization, he rowed a skiff out to the island fort and demanded its surrender from Major Robert Anderson. The incident was widely reported in the newspapers furthering his celebrity, but the story redacted the important detail that Wigfall had not spoken to Beauregard in two days. When the authorized emissaries arrived at the fort, they were dismayed upon learning that Wigfall had granted terms to Anderson which Beauregard had already rejected......................................................................$225.00

They then set sail from Havana on the British mail boat steamer RMS Trent, but were intercepted by the U.S. Navy while en route and taken into captivity at Fort Warren in Boston. Due to public outcry and that of the British they were released. Very fine..............................$85.00

21329 - MAJOR JOHN PELHAM
, Carte de Visite in uniform, no imprint. John Pelham (September 7, 1838 - March 17, 1863) was an artillery officer who served with the Confederate cavalry under J. E. B. Stuart during the American Civil War. Dubbed "The Gallant Pelham" for his military prowess and personal courage, Pelham revolutionized the usage of light artillery as a mobile arm of the cavalry. Pelham was involved in every major military engagement of Stuart's cavalry from the First Battle of Bull Run to Kelly's Ford, more than 60 encounters. He particularly distinguished himself as the Chief of Stuart's Artillery in the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) and Battle of Fredericksburg. At Sharpsburg, Pelham's guns, positioned on a rise known as Nicodemus Hill, repeatedly harassed the Flanks of oncoming Union lines, causing numerous casualties and breaking up battle formations. Lt. Gen. Stonewall Jackson said of him in his report on the battle, "It is really extraordinary to find such nerve and genius in a mere boy. With a Pelham on each flank I believe I could whip the world." At Fredericksburg, Pelham's guns, positioned well in advance of the main Confederate lines, held up the entire flank of the Union Army of the Potomac for several hours, enabling the Confederates to repel a series of strong attacks. General Robert E. Lee commended Pelham in  his official report for "unflinching courage" while under direct fire from multiple Union batteries. Pelham was, at the time, commanding only two guns that were in service, but with those batteries for a time enfiladed the entire advancing Federal lines of battle. At Kelly's Ford on March 17, 1863, Pelham participated in a cavalry charge, his artillery not being engaged. Standing up in his stirrups, he urged his men to "Press forward, press forward to glory and victory." Not long afterward, he was struck in the head by a fragment of an exploding Federal artillery shell. He was carried six miles from the battlefield to Culpepper Courthouse, and died the following morning without having regained consciousness. Stuart said of his death, in a general order to the rest of his division. First example we have had in years..........................................

Seated pose in Confederate uniform, Brigadier General William Nelson Rector Beall (1825 - 1883) was the commander of all Confederate Army forces at Port Hudson from around 1 September 1862 until General Franklin Gardner assumed command in late December, 1862. He then was placed in command of the left of the Confederate defenses, and at the time of the May 27th battle, he was in command of the defenses in the center of the line which included the Priest Cap. Around the 1st of September, 1862, Beall was placed in command of the Confederate forces at Port Hudson, and although General Frank Gardner subsequently assumed chief command, General Beall and his brigade continued to be important factors in the gallant defense of the post until its surrender. On July 9th, the post was surrendered, and the men were then paroled and some of them, including General Beall, were never exchanged. General Beall was first imprisoned on Johnson's Island Prison Camp in Ohio. In 1864, Beall was appointed as a Confederate agent for the purpose of supplying Confederate prisoners of war and paroled for this purpose. Beall established an office in New York, New York and sold cotton allowed through the Union blockade of southern ports. The proceeds of these sales were used to purchase clothing and blankets for Confederate prisoners in northern prison camps. Beall was released on 2 August 1865. He moved to St. Louis, Missouri and engaged in business as a general commission merchant.

11052 - GENERAL MANSFIELD LOVELL, Carte de Visite by Anthony, (October 20, 1822 - June 1, 1884) was a major general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. As military commander of New Orleans when the city unexpectedly fell to the Union Navy in 1862, Lovell was fiercely criticized by local citizens for failing to predict a naval invasion. The Confederate government also heaped blame on him, to deflect attention from their own error in leaving so few troops to defend the city. He then commanded an infantry division under Maj. Gen. Earl Van Dorn at the Second Battle of Corinth in Mississippi. He was later relieved of command as a consequence of his poor performance at New Orleans. Stung by this reprimand, he demanded a court of inquiry, which met in April 1863 and declared him innocent of charges of incompetence. However, he was not given any assignments for the rest of the Civil War. Beautiful seated pose in Confederate uniform from life, choice.....................$495.00

For much of the Civil War, he served as the senior cavalry general in the Army of Tennessee and fought in most of its battles in the Western Theater.

11055 - GENERAL BENJAMIN HUGER, Carte de Visite by Anthony, (November 22, 1805 - December 7, 1877) was a career United States Army ordnance officer who fought with distinction during the Mexican-American War. He also served as a Confederate general officer during the American Civil War, noted for his controversial performances while in charge of Norfolk, Virginia, and during the 1862 Peninsula Campaign. Relieved of field duty, he would spend most of the remainder of the conflict in staff positions in the Trans-Mississippi Department, where he performed well. Following combat service on the Virginia Peninsula in 1862, Huger was assigned to be assistant Inspector General of artillery and ordnance for the Army of Northern Virginia. He held this post from his relief on June 12 until August, when he was sent to the Confederate Trans-Mississippi Department. Huger was made the department's inspector of artillery and ordnance on August 26, and then was promoted to command of all ordnance within the department in July 1863. This position Huger held until the end of the American Civil War in 1865, when he surrendered along with Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith and the rest of the Confederate Trans-Mississippi forces. Huger was paroled from Shreveport, Louisiana, on June 12 of that same year and returned to civilian life.

11056 - GENERAL P. G. T. BEAUREGARD, Carte de Visite by Brady, (May 28, 1818 - February 20, 1893) was a Louisiana-born American military officer, politician, inventor, writer, civil servant, and the first prominent general of the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. Today he is commonly referred to as P. G. T. Beauregard, but he rarely used his first name as an adult. He signed correspondence as G. T. Beauregard. Trained as a civil engineer at the United States Military Academy, Beauregard served with distinction as an engineer in the Mexican-American War. Following a brief appointment at West Point in 1861, after the South seceded he resigned from the US Army and became the first Confederate brigadier general. He commanded the defenses of Charleston, South Carolina, at the start of the Civil War at Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861. Three months later he won the First Battle of Bull Run near Manassas, Virginia. Beauregard commanded armies in the Western Theater, including at the Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee, and the Siege of Corinth in northern Mississippi. He returned to Charleston and defended it in 1863 from repeated naval and land attacks by Union forces. His greatest achievement was saving the important industrial city of Petersburg, Virginia in June 1864, and thus the nearby Confederate capital of Richmond, from assaults by overwhelmingly superior Union Army forces. But, his influence over Confederate strategy was lessened by his poor professional relationships with President Jefferson Davis and other senior generals and officials. In April 1865, Beauregard and his commander, General Joseph E. Johnston, convinced Davis and the remaining cabinet members that the war needed to end. Johnston surrendered most of the remaining armies of the Confederacy, including Beauregard and his men, to Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman.

11057 - GENERAL W. F. ROONEY LEE, Carte de Visite. Bust pose in Confederate uniform from life. With the outbreak of the Civil War, Lee was commissioned as a captain in the Confederate Army cavalry and was soon promoted to major. He initially served in western Virginia under the command of Brig. Gen. William Loring during 1861 and early 1862. He was assigned to the command of Maj. Gen. J. E. B. Stuart, where he was promoted to lieutenant colonel, and later as colonel of the 9th Virginia Cavalry. After the Battle of South Mountain, Lee was promoted to brigadier general . He fought at Antietam under the command of Brig. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, his cousin. He commanded the 3rd Brigade of Stuart's Cavalry Division at the Battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. He was wounded during combat at Brandy Station at the beginning of the Gettysburg Campaign and was captured by Union forces at Hickory Hill, Virginia, two weeks later, while recuperating. He was shipped to New York State, where he was held as a prisoner of war until returned to the Confederate Army on February 25, 1864. He was exchanged for the Confederate captive, Union Brig. Gen. Neal S. Dow. In April, Lee was promoted to major general and commanded a division in the Cavalry Corps during the breakout from Petersburg and the retreat of his father's army in the Campaign. By the end of the war, Rooney Lee had risen to second-in-command of the Confederate cavalry. He surrendered along with his father at Appomattox Court House. Nice card......................$275.00

11059 - COMMANDER JOHN NEWLAND MAFFITT, Carte de Visite, seated pose of Maffitt in uniform, no imprint but from life (February 22, 1819 - May 15, 1886) was an officer in the Confederate States Navy who was nicknamed the "Prince of Privateers" due to his remarkable success as a blockade runner and commerce raider in the U.S. Civil War. On August 17, 1862, he became the first commanding officer of the cruiser CSS Florida, taking her through a difficult outfitting period during which most of the ship's company was stricken with yellow fever. While in port in Cuba, Commander Maffitt himself contracted the disease. In this condition, Maffitt sailed Florida from Cárdenas, Cuba to Mobile, Alabama. With the way into Mobile Bay blocked by Union warships, Florida braved a hail of projectiles from the blockaders and raced through them to anchor beneath the guns of Fort Morgan. The bombardment from the blockaders was severe and the damage to Florida was so great that Maffitt did not return to sea for more than three months. To prevent his escape, the Union Navy increased the blockading force near Mobile. Having taken stores and gun accessories the ship lacked, along with added crew members, Maffitt waited for a violent storm before setting out on January 16, 1863. He used trickery to lose six pursuing blockaders. After coaling at Nassau, Bahamas, Florida spent 6 months off North and South America and in the West Indies, with calls at neutral ports, all the while making captures and eluding the large Federal squadron pursuing her. It was during this period that he acquired the nickname "Prince of Privateers" (which was somewhat inaccurate, since he was a naval officer and not an actual privateer). Maffitt was promoted to the rank of Commander in May 1863 "for gallant and meritorious conduct in command of the steam sloop Florida." Ill health due to the lingering effects of yellow fever forced him to relinquish command of Florida at Brest, France on February 12, 1864. In the summer of 1864, after returning to the Confederate States, Maffitt was given command of the ironclad ram CSS Albemarle. Under Maffitt's command, Albemarle dominated the Roanoke River and the approaches to Plymouth,  North Carolina throughout the summer. In September, he was given command of the blockade runner CSS Owl. On October 3, Owl escaped to sea from Wilmington; the blockaders wounded her captain and several crewmen but 9 shots failed to stop them, and Owl arrived in Bermuda on October 24 with a large and valuable cargo of cotton. Maffitt made several more successful runs through the Union blockade in Owl before the war ended. During his service to the Confederacy, Maffitt repeatedly ran the blockade to carry needed supplies and captured and destroyed more than seventy prizes worth $10 to $15 million. This pose is usually published by Fredericks. While the care does not have an imprint it has the quality of a Fredericks' card.

He also served as a Confederate general during the American Civil War, noted for his defeat and surrender in the critical Siege of Vicksburg in the summer of 1863. On October 10, 1862, Pemberton was promoted to the rank of lieutenant general, and assigned to defend the fortress city of Vicksburg to Grant on July 3rd, 1863. Later he commanded artillery in the defense of Richmond and later surrendered in North Carolina. An unusually CDV nice from life image of Pemberton who is never seen in an actual Confederate uniform.

11064 - GENERAL FITZ HUGH LEE, Carte de Visite by Vannerson and Jones of Richmond (November 19, 1835 - April 28, 1905) was a Confederate cavalry general in the American Civil War, the 40th Governor of Virginia, diplomat, and United States Army general in the Spanish-American War. He was the son of Sydney Smith Lee, a captain in the Confederate States Navy, and the nephew of General Robert E. Lee. He was promoted to lieutenant colonel of the 1st Virginia Cavalry in August 1861, serving under Colonel J. E. B. Stuart. Lee became colonel of the regiment in March 1862 and was promoted to brigadier general on July 24, 1862. During the Northern Virginia Campaign, Lee received notoriety by arriving late for a concentration of cavalry, which allowed Federal cavalry to raid Stuart's headquarters and capture his famous plumed hat and cape. However, during the subsequent Confederate raid on Catlett's Station, he captured the headquarters tent and dress uniform of Union Maj. Gen. John Pope. Lee gave Pope's coat to Stuart as compensation for the hat he had lost. Lee performed well in the Maryland Campaign of 1862, covering the Confederate infantry's withdrawal from South Mountain, delaying the Union Army advance to Sharpsburg, Maryland, before the Battle of Antietam, and covering his army's re-crossing of the Potomac River into Virginia. He conducted the cavalry action of Kelly's Ford (March 17, 1863) with skill and success, where his 400 troopers captured 150 men and horses with a loss of only 14 men. In the Battle of Chancellorsville in May 1863, Lee's reconnaissance found that the Union Army's right flank was "in the air", which allowed the successful flanking attack by Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, a movement led by Lee's cavalry. After Chancellorsville, Lee was incapacitated by inflammatory rheumatism, missing a month of action, which included the significant cavalry operations at the Battle of Brandy Station. He recovered in time to lead a brigade in Jeb Stuart's ride around the Union Army in the early days of the Gettysburg Campaign, with his most significant contribution being at the Battle of Carlisle. During the Battle of Gettysburg, his brigade fought unsuccessfully in the action at East Cavalry Field. Stuart's report singled out no officer in his command for praise except Fitz Lee, who he said was "one of the finest cavalry leaders on the continent, and richly [entitled] to promotion." Lee was promoted to major general on August 3, 1863. In the Overland and Petersburg campaigns of 1864, he was constantly employed as a divisional commander under Stuart, and after Stuart's death, under Maj. Gen. Wade Hampton. Hampton, who had been Lee's peer for much of the war, was promoted to replace Stuart due to his seniority and greater level of experience; some observers at the time had cynically expected Robert E. Lee's nephew to receive the command. When General Hampton was sent to assist General Joseph E. Johnston in North Carolina, the command of the whole of Robert E. Lee's cavalry devolved upon Fitzhugh Lee on March 29, 1865, but the surrender at Appomattox followed quickly upon the opening of the campaign. Fitzhugh Lee himself led the last charge of the Confederates on April 9 that year at Farmville, Virginia. Large bust pose from life in Confederate uniform.

In his first battle as a general, Hanson was severely wounded on January 2, 1863, during a charge at Murfreesboro (Stones River) when he was struck above the knee by the fuse of a spent artillery shell.

9304 - GENERAL RICHARD GARNETT, Carte de Viste no imprint. Bust on uniform. During the Gettysburg Campaign, Garnett's brigade continued in the division of George Pickett and due to the order of march, did not reach the battlefield from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, until late on the afternoon of July 2, 1863, missing the first two days of the Battle of Gettysburg. Pickett's division was assigned by Gen. Lee to lead a great assault on the Union's center on Cemetery Ridge on July 3. Garnett's brigade was in the front rank of Pickett's division, on the left, next to Brig. Gen. James L. Kemper's brigade. Garnett was in no shape to lead an infantry charge; he was suffering from fever and an injured leg when his horse kicked him and could not walk. But Garnett yearned to settle the record of his military dishonor from Kernstown, which the aborted court-martial could not. Despite protestations from other officers, Garnett insisted on leading his soldiers into battle on horseback, becoming a conspicuous target for Union riflemen prior to starting out toward the Union defenses on Cemetery Hill, Garnett conversed with Brig. Gen. Lewis Armistead, another of Pickett's brigade commanders, about the proposed charge. Garnett reportedly said: "This is a desperate thing to attempt" to which Armistead added his prediction that "the slaughter will be terrible." Garnett personally got within 20 yards of the "Angle" on Cemetery Ridge before he was killed, a bullet striking him in the head as he waved his hat to urge his men forward. His courier, Private Robert H. Irvine of the 19th Virginia, witnessed his death. Irvine's horse was hit and fell on Garnett, so the private pulled Garnett's body from underneath the animal and retrieved the general's watch, which he gave to the brigade adjutant.

He also served as a United States Army brigadier general during the Mexican-American War, and a Confederate Army major general in the American Civil War. Price is best known for his victories in New Mexico and Chihuahua during the Mexican conflict, and for his losses at the Battles of Pea Ridge and Westport during the Civil War - the latter being the culmination of his ill-fated Missouri Campaign of 1864. Following the war, Price took his remaining troops to Mexico rather than surrender. A difficult card from life.........................................................$295.00


42929 - THOMAS MARSHALL OF KENTUCKY, Carte de Viste, noted as the "Eloquent son of Kentucky," no imprint from life photo taken from a daguerreotype. Nephew of John Marshall. Marshall attended the convention that drafted the 1830 Constitution of Virginia so that he could observe the debate among the delegates, which included his uncle John Marshall, John Randolph, James Madison, and James Monroe. Thereafter, he pursued politics, befriending Henry Clay and being elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives in 1832. While a member of the House, he distinguished himself by a report denouncing the doctrine of nullification, as proposed by the state of South Carolina to the several states. He moved to Louisville, Kentucky in 1833 and resumed his legal practice, but his practice was again interrupted by election to the Kentucky House of Representatives, where he served until 1836. In 1837, Marshall sought election to the U.S. House of Representative, but was defeated by incumbent William J. Graves. Embarrassed by the loss, he returned to Woodford County and was elected twice more to the state legislature, serving from 1838 to 1839. In 1841, he was elected a Whig to represent Kentucky's Tenth District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Although he was a frequent orator in that body, only two of his speeches were reported in the local newspapers owing to his admonition to reporters not to "pass on the public their infernal gibberish for my English". After publicly differing with Henry Clay on the issues of renewing the charter of the Second Bank of the United States and the annexation of Texas, he considered it futile to run for re-election in Clay's home district and declined to seek renomination to his seat in Congress. Marshall campaigned for James K. Polk, Clay's opponent in the 1844 presidential election. In 1845, he was again unsuccessful in his bid for a seat in Congress, losing to Garrett Davis. During the Mexican-American War, he served a captain of cavalry volunteers for a year. After returning from the war, Marshall unsuccessfully sought to be a delegate to the constitutional convention that drafted the 1850 Kentucky Constitution. He campaigned for Winfield Scott in the 1852 presidential election and was again elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives in 1854. He served a single term, which marked his last service in public office. Very fine......................................................................................................$79.00

1163 - GENERAL THOMAS DRAYTON, Carte de Viste, no imprint, from life bust pose.

Inf. and three Georgia Infantry regiments, the 50th and 51st and Phillips' Georgia Legions, [7] which became part of the Right Wing of the Army of Northern Virginia under Lt. Gen. James Longstreet. Drayton's Brigade fought at the Second Battle of Manassas. Defending Fox's Gap at the Battle of South Mountain, Drayton suffered high casualties. His much depleted brigade also saw considerable action at Sharpsburg. His tactical abilities were at times questioned by his superiors, and he was finally removed from command. He was transferred to the Western Theater to command a brigade in Sterling Price's army in August 1863. During the final two years o the war, he mainly performed administrative duties in the Trans-Mississippi Theater, although he did briefly command a division in early 1864. Near mint crisp card........................................................SOLD

1164 - GENERAL FITZHUGH LEE, Carte de Viste, no imprint, from life bust pose in uniform. Lee performed well in the Maryland Campaign of 1862, covering the Confederate infantry' withdrawal from South Mountain, delaying the Union Army advance to Sharpsburg, Maryland, before the Battle of Antietam, and covering his army's recrossing of the Potomac River into Virginia. He conducted the cavalry action of Kelly's Ford (March 17, 1863) with skill and success, where his 400 troopers captured 150 men and horses with a loss of only 14 men. In the Battle of Chancellorsville in May 1863, Lee's reconnaissance found that the Union Army's right flank was "in the air", which allowed the successful flanking attack by Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, a movement led by Lee's cavalry. After Chancellorsville, Lee was incapacitated by inflammatory rheumatism, missing a month of action, which included the significant cavalry operations at the Battle of Brandy Station. He recovered in time to lead a brigade in Jeb Stuart's ride around the Union Army in the early days of the Gettysburg Campaign, with his most significant contribution being at the Battle of Carlisle. During the Battle of Gettysburg, his brigade fought unsuccessfully in the action at East Cavalry Field. Stuart's report singled out no officer in his command for praise except Fitz Lee, who he said was "one of the finest cavalry leaders on the continent, and richly [entitled] to promotion." Lee was promoted to major general on August 3, 1863. Near mint, crisp card, great contrast................................................$250.00

1167 - GENERAL STERLING PRICE, MISSOURI, Carte de Viste, no imprint, bust pose in uniform from life.

He also served as a United States Army brigadier general during the Mexican-American War, and a Confederate Army major general in the American Civil War. Price is best known for his victories in New Mexico and Chihuahua during the Mexican conflict, and for his losses at the Battles of Pea Ridge and Westport during the Civil War-the latter being the culmination of his ill-fated Missouri Campaign of 1864. Following the war, Price took his remaining troops to Mexico rather than surrender, unsuccessfully seeking service with the Emperor Maximillian there. He ultimately returned to Missouri, where he died in poverty and was buried in St. Louis. A bold photograph, great contrast.........................................................$175.00

1170 - GENERAL FELIX ZOLLINCOFFER, Carte de Viste by Anthony, 3/4 standing pose in the usual Federal uniform. Killed at the Battle of Mill Springs. The southern bank of the Cumberland River at Mill Springs was a bluff and a strong defensive position, whereas the northern bank was low and flat. Zollicoffer chose to move most of his men to the north bank where they would be closer to nearby Union troops, incorrectly assuming that it was more defensible. Both Crittenden and Albert Sidney Johnston ordered Zollicoffer to relocate south of the river, but he could not comply--he had insufficient boats to cross the un fordable river quickly and was afraid his brigade would be caught by the enemy halfway across. Zollicoffer's men were routed from the field. Some accounts claim that Union Colonel Speed S. Fry shot Zollicoffer as the battle waned. He had inadvertently wandered into the Union position, thinking they were Confederate soldiers with his nearsightedness and the gathering darkness. He was struck several times by enemy bullets and soon died from his wounds. Very fine crisp card.................................................$125.00

He was on duty in Norfolk with the Fourth Virginia Battalion Militia as a major. He entered Confederate service as Colonel of the 12th Virginia Infantry May 9, 1861. His unit was stationed on the Lower Peninsula until the spring of 1862, when it was pulled into the Army of Northern Virginia, being placed into Gen. William Mahone's Brigade. The 12th Virginia fought at Seven Pines during the Seven Days Campaign and then participated at Second Manassas. Wounded in the latter battle, Weisiger was lucky to return to the army the following July. At the Wilderness, he took over Mahone's brigade with a temporary brigadier general rank to date May 31, 1864. His promotion was made permanent July 30, 1864, in recognition of his performance at the Battle of the Crater, where Weisiger and Mahone led the counterattack that led to the Confederate victory.

He was elected as a Whig to the Thirty-second Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Humphrey Marshall and reelected to the Thirty-third Congress and served from December 6, 1852 to March 3, 1855. He stood again for another term in 1854 but was unsuccessful. President James Buchanan appointed Preston as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Spain in 1858. He resigned as ambassador in 1861 at the outbreak of the Civil War. Although his home state of Kentucky did not secede from the Union, Preston served in the Confederate Army and attained the rank of brigadier general. He was appointed Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary from the Confederacy to Maximilian, Emperor of Mexico in 1864.

Anderson missed Chancellorsville being with the majority of Lt. Gen. James Longstreet's First Corps operating in southeastern Virginia. Longstreet's men rejoined the Army of Northern Virginia in time for the Gettysburg Campaign. Anderson fought around Devil's Den and the Wheatfield at Gettysburg, where he was wounded.

Hays was promoted to brigadier general on July 25, 1862 and assigned command of the First Louisiana Brigade, replacing Richard Taylor who had been promoted to major general and sent to the Western Theater. This brigade was known as the "Louisiana Tigers," having taken the name from the original battalion commanded by Roberdeau Wheat. Hays lost half of his unit a few months later at the Battle of Antietam. Despite reduced numbers, he continued to lead his brigade at Fredericksburg in December 1862 and Chancellorsivlle in May 1863. At the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863, after he had garrisoned the town, he directed his troops in a twilight assault on Cemetery Hill. The brigade stubbornly fought their way up the steep slope, and for a brief period of time held several Union guns there. However, as General Hays looked rearward, he was dismayed to see that no additional troops had been sent to his support. Reluctantly, and with casualties mounting, he ordered the remnant of his brigade to retire in the gathering darkness just as Federal reinforcements arrived to secure the heights. His brigade brought back several battle flags captured during the attack. Hays was briefly captured in November 1863, at Rappahannock Station, but escaped. In fierce fighting at the Battle of the Wilderness on May 5, 1864, he lost a third of his remaining men. Five days later, he was badly wounded by a shell fragment at Spotsylvania Court House.

2124 - GENERAL ROGER HANSON, CSA, Carte de Viste Roger Weightman Hanson (August 27, 1827 - January 4, 1863) was a general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. The commander of the famed "Orphan Brigade," he was mortally wounded at the Battle of Murfreesboro. He was nicknamed "Old Flintlock". Hanson was named as colonel of a regiment of Confederate troops he raised in Lexington, Kentucky. When President Abraham Lincoln sent Federal troops into Lexington and raised the U.S. flag over the city, Hanson and his 2nd Kentucky Infantry were "orphaned," as they could never return home until Lexington fell to the Confederates (which did not occur). They were taken prisoner with the surrender of Fort Donelson. After being exchanged, Hanson was presented with a new horse by admiring friends. He rejoined the army and was promoted to brigadier general in December 1862, commanding his old regiment as well as the 4th, 6th, and 19th Kentucky Infantry regiments, the 41st Alabama regiment, and Cobb's Battery in Breckinridge's division, Hardee's corps. In his first battle as a general, Hanson was severely wounded on January 2, 1863, during a charge at Murfreesboro (Stones River) when he was struck above the knee by the fuse of a spent artillery shell. His brother-in-law vainly tried to stop the bleeding. He died two days later at the age of 35, with his last words as "I die in a just cause, having done my duty." General Breckinridge remarked in his official report, "Endeared to his friends by his private virtues and to his command by the vigilance with which he guarded its interest and honor, he was, by the universal testimony of his military associates, one of the finest officers that adorned the service of the Confederate States."
