    Pair of Staff Photographs - General Sherman & Gov. Buckingham. This pair of cartes de visite feature two groups of staff officers and their commander. The first is Sherman and his officers. Pictured are: Oliver Howard, John Logan, William Hazen, Jefferson C. Davis, Henry Slocum, J.A. Mower, and Francis Blair. Interestingly, Howard, on the far left, can be seen with his empty sleeve tucked into his coat. Howard lost his arm in 1862 at the Battle of Fair Oaks. This photograph has several condition issues, but none which detract terribly from the overall power of the image. Light overall toning and soiling on both sides; small area of foxing on the right edge of recto; emulsion missing and chipped on the left edge; pencil notations on verso; no imprint; no border. The second photograph features Governor Buckingham and his staff. Buckingham was Governor of Connecticut during the Civil War years. Here he is seated amongst several officers, presumably from his home state! Pictured are: Col. Bond, Col. Child, Col Matson (all standing), Gen. Fitch, Gen. Morse, Gen. Aiken, Col. Osgood. This image is also riddled with a few condition issues: rounded corners from wear and storage; moderate soiling on recto; small crack on left edge in emulsion; bears the Bundy & Stoddard imprint on verso; no border.
