    Description

    Civil War Union Signed Carte de Visite of Drummer Boy Johnny Clem. 2.5" x 4", on a mount with no back stamp or photographers mark. Although the story about Clem running away from home at age 9 to join the army has little foundation, we know he served as the drummer boy for the 22nd Michigan but probably after the Battle of Shiloh. He was with the 22nd at the Battle of Chickamauga and was said to have carried a musket in battle. Pictured here is a young Master Clem.

    Condition: Excellent. Clean and crisp, with no markings.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
