    Great Civil War Albumen of Chaplain Mooney Overseeing "Services At Headquarters 69th N. Y. S. M. Virginia, 1861." Doubtless among the most famous, and certainly among the most poignant, photographic images to emerge from the American Civil War. This image was doubtless executed shortly before the regiment went into action at 1st Bull Run on July 21, where they suffered heavily, losing 45 men killed and mortally wounded. The 69th was composed primarily of Irish Catholics from New York. Colonel Corcoran is identified on the mount, standing at the edge of the group to the right of the cross. Superb quality and condition. The image 13" X 16 1/4" on slightly larger mount. A magnificent example of an important Civil War image.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
