    Large and Superb Cartes de Visite Collection of Union and Confederate Commanders. Includes 12 Confederate general officers and 23 of their Union counterparts. Confederate generals include John Hunt Morgan, Simon Bolivar Buckner, Stonewall Jackson, Joseph E. Johnston among others. The Union is represented by U.S. Grant, George Meade, Winfield Hancock, David Hunter, N. P. Banks and many others. With only few exceptions the images feature the various commanders in uniform and the vast number of image are taken from life. The lot consists of 27 images by E. & H. T. Anthony, one Brady image and the remainder from miscellaneous photography studios. Thirty-one examples are housed in sturdy plastic cases. Three examples with revenue stamps on the verso. Overall, an excellent opportunity to get a head start on a collection of general officers of the Civil War.

    Condition: Generally, very good. Most images sharp, clear and clean; a few with uniform light spotting to the emulsion.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
