    General Clinton B. Fisk Signed Carte de Visite. A head and shoulders portrait in uniform, signed below "Clinton B. Fisk/ Bvt Maj Genl". Backmark of J. W. Winders & Co Photographers (Cincinnati) with a 2¢ tax stamp on verso. He served most of the American Civil War in Missouri and Arkansas opposing raids into Missouri by Confederate cavalry and guerrillas. After the war, he was very active in the Prohibition Party and actually ran for president in 1888 (coming in third). He made an enabling endowment and contributed facilities to Fisk University which was then named after him. Unevenly trimmed, a torn corner repaired on verso. The portrait and signature are clear with excellent contrast.
