    James Negley Signed Carte de Visite. 2.5" x 4", a chest-up portrait in uniform, with no backstamp on verso. Signed below the image: "Jas. S. Negley Major Genl."

    James Scott Negley (1826-1901) organized and equipped Pennsylvania recruits. He performed well at Stone's River (Murfreesboro), where he led a counterattack against Confederate Major General Breckinridge's attack on the Union's flank. However, he was severely criticized for his actions, or lack thereof, while in command of the 2nd Division of Thomas' XIV Corps prior to the Battle of Chickamauga. This hit to his reputation basically ended his military career. After the war, Negley was elected to Congress and served from 1869 to 1875.

    Condition: Light toning and minor soiling. Pencil notations on verso.
