    Confederate Cartes-de-Visite: John S. Marmaduke, Humphrey Marshall, Dabney Herndon Maury and Lafayette McLaws. Four (4) cartes including an unmarked albumen on later mount of John S. Marmaduke (1833-1887); Humphrey Marshall (1812-1872); Dabney Herndon Maury (1822-1900); and Lafayette McLaws (1821-1897). Cartes of Marshall, Maury, and McLaws are by E & H.T. Anthony, New York. Marmaduke fought primarily in Missouri and Arkansas. He was wounded at Shiloh. He insulted Major General Lucius M. Walker, was challenged to a duel and killed Walker. He was victorious in the Battle of Poison Spring, but was accused of murdering African-American troops of the First Kansas Colored Volunteer Infantry. Marmaduke cast blame on members of the 1st and 2nd Choctaw Regiments under his command who "did kill and scalp some" of the black troops. The 300-lb. Marshall was primarily a optician ill suited for army life. He ran afoul of Braxton Bragg and entered the Confederate Congress in 1863. Maury acquitted himself well at Iuka, Corinth and Hatchie Bridge, Tennessee. He managed to forestall Union advances at Mobile Bay and the city of Mobile. McLaws, a native Georgian, was a division commander in the Army of Northern Virginia. He fought well at Antietam and Fredericksburg, but failed to impress at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. He was serving under Joe Johnston at war's end. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
