    Description

    Carte de Visite of Confederate General Arthur Exum Reynolds. Impressive ¾-length CDV of Reynolds in uniform. A lawyer in Jacinto, Mississippi before the war, Reynolds represented his county at the Mississippi Secession Convention but voted against the Ordinance. However, he requested permission from Jefferson Davis to raise a regiment in the summer of 1861 and did so with the help of prominent planter Francis Marion Boone. This regiment was designated the 26th Mississippi and Reynolds was elected colonel. They were the first to leave the state to take part in the war. He was captured at Fort Donelson in February 1861 and released six months later. Reynolds would later lead the 26th at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania Courthouse, Cold Harbor, Gaines' Mill, and Weldon Railroad (where he was wounded). Photo by E. and H.T. Anthony Photographers of New York. Two small chips at upper right; light age toning overall.
