    Description

    Carte de Visite of Confederate General John Hunt Morgan. Confederate cavalry officer, John Morgan achieved fame and notoriety by ignoring orders and launching a series of raids through Union-held territory in the summer of 1863. For 46 days they rode more than 1,000 miles, covering a region from Tennessee to northern Ohio. The raid coincided with the Vicksburg Campaign and the Gettysburg Campaign, although it was not directly related to either. However, it served to draw the attention of tens of thousands of Federal troops away from their normal duties and strike fear in the civilian population of several Northern states. Bust image of Morgan in his prime; photographer unknown. Light age toning and in fine condition.
