    General J.B. Magruder and Sterling Price Carte de Visite. This handsome CDV features two well-known Confederate officers; John Magruder and Sterling Price. Magruder and Price are shown sitting among a group of five men, all looking very distinguished and dapper. There is text in the emulsion, however, it has become a bit muddled and is therefore unreadable. Both men, after fighting valiantly for their cause in the Confederacy, would flee to Mexico to avoid the backlash from Union forces. Bearing an Anthony/Brady imprint on the verso, the CDV is in very fine condition; light overall toning; several ink notations on recto; double lined gilt border.
