    Description

    Confederate Brigadier General Thomas Jordan Signed Carte de Visite, "Thomas Jordan / Brig Genl & CS" with "Charleston SC. / July 14th 1863" inscribed on blank back. Lightly tinted and of Confederate manufacture. A few small stains, edge abrasions, uneven lower margin. Good condition. A colorful Virginian, Thomas Jordan (1819 - 1895) graduated from the U.S. Military Academy in 1840 to become a veteran of the Seminole and Mexican Wars. While yet on active Federal duty in 1860, Jordan began sniffing around Washington on behalf of Southern interests. His efforts laid the foundation for the wartime Confederate spy network headed by Washington resident Rose O'Neal Greenhow. The CDV offered here was signed mid-war while Jordan was serving under Beauregard at Charleston.
