    Brady Imperial Albumen Photograph, "Sherman and his Generals", framed to 24" x 23.75" overall. The irascible William Tecumseh Sherman is the central focus of this formal group portrait published by Matthew Brady in 1865. The albumen's imprinted mat identifies the other sitters as generals Howard, Logan, Davis, Slocum, Mower and Blair. Even browning, slight curl to one corner of the print and minimal edge chipping. This is an original and very rare photograph taken from life by Brady in Washington D.C. during the Victory parade in May, 1865. General Blair arrived late and Brady photographed him separately and then "pasted" him into the group photo. This makes this image all the more unique as just one other image of General Blair exists in a different pose.
