    Confederate Brigadier General Thomas F. Drayton Cartes de Visite, E. & H. T. Anthony backmark, New York. Penciled identification on verso, light soiling. Very good condition overall. Thomas Fenwick Drayton (1801 - 1891), scion of a prominent South Carolina family, graduated from the U. S. Military Academy in 1828. Contrary to South Carolina's reputation as being solidly Confederate, the Drayton family was of divided loyalties. As commander of the defenses around Port Royal in 1861, Thomas Drayton was attacked by his own brother, Percival, who captained one of the Federal ships engaged in the assault.
