    Description

    Albert Sidney Johnston Carte de Visite A fine image showing Albert Sidney Johnston (1802-1862) in the uniform of a Major General in the U.S. Army. No photographic backstamp, and trimmed at the bottom margin. Johnston's name is written twice on the verso, once in pen and once in pencil. After the death of his first wife, Johnston moved to Texas in 1836 and enlisted as a private in the Texas Army. Johnston quickly rose through the ranks and on December 22, 1838, he was appointed secretary of war for the Republic of Texas by President Mirabeau B. Lamar. In December 1839 he led an expedition against the Cherokee in East Texas. At the outbreak of the Civil War Johnston resigned his position as commander of the U.S. Army of the Pacific in California and went on to form the Confederate Army of Mississippi. Johnston was killed at the Battle of Shiloh.
