    Description

    Rare and Unusual Hand Tinted Civil War Albumen Photograph of Brig. Gen. David M. McGregg and Staff C. 1864. 5 3/8" X 7 1/4" oval albumen image on the original 8" X 10" mount. Depicts Gen. McGregg and staff in front of tent with brigade/division flag on staff and a sentry in overcoat with bayonetted musket at extreme right. The entire image has been skillfully, and delicately, hand tinted, most unusual. Image very fine with just some very minor tiny scattered spotting, really of negligible consequence. Period ink script ID on verso as follows: "Reading from left to right (looking at picture); Capt. Wier; Signal officer name not known; Capt. Corson; Capt. Phillips; Lieut. Arrowsmith; Major Kester; Lieut. Gregg (Father); Seated Major Phillips; Brig. Gen. David M M. Gregg". Also accompanied by an ink script note, "Taken during one of the Civil War years. Lieutenant Gregg standing second from right." Great image and the first example we have encountered.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
