    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.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
