    Confederate Brigadier General Thomas Fenwick Drayton: Carte de Visite "Slaves of Rebel Gen. T. F. Drayton, Hilton Head, S. C.", Circa 1862-1863. Approximately 4" x 2.5" with an H.P. Moore, Concord, New Hampshire studio label on the verso. An excellent study of Civil War era plantation life featuring a view of over 40 male and female slaves recently liberated by Union troops. This particular image bears the initials "E. H. P." on the verso. E. H. Phelps was a Paymaster who collected CDVs while on duty, and this image comes from his Vermont family. Light age toning to mount, otherwise a superb clear image in excellent condition.
