    Mathew Brady 1865 Peace Commissioners Carte de Visite Offered here is a souvenir carte de visite with seven portraits: Abraham Lincoln (center); also General William T. Sherman, General Philip H. Sheridan, General Ulysses S. Grant, General George H. Thomas, Admiral David D. Porter, and Admiral David G. Farragut. Above the portraits the banner states, "Our Peace Commissioners" and the banner below, "For 1865." Issued prior to Lincoln's death and reminiscent of the 1864 Lincoln campaign ribbons labeled "Peace Commissioners." Sharp images with rich tonality. Very minor tear in upper right corner of mount. The backstamp shows this card was published by E. & H. T. Anthony of New York (which later became Ansco). Brady supported his wartime photography work by selling negatives of his Civil War photos to Anthony in exchange for cameras and supplies. Photos with Anthony imprints are considered quasi-Brady items by collectors.
