    Union Brigadier General William Haines Lytle: Killed in Action at Chickamauga Carte de Visite. Approximately 2.5" x 4" with a C. D. Clark Photographer, Ionia, Michigan backmark. Contemporary inscription on the verso dated 1864. General Lytle is posed seated, in uniform with his sword by his side. Of particular note is the bejeweled Maltese cross pendant worn on his left side. This pendant was given to him by admiring officers of his 10th OVI just days before he was killed. William H. Lytle (1826-1863) was commissioned a colonel in the 10th Ohio Infantry upon the outbreak of the war. He was wounded on two different occasions and captured at the Battle of Perryville in Kentucky. He was exchanged, returned to the army and was mortally wounded at Chickamauga. The hill where he died is now known as "Lytle Hill". The image has some light scattered foxing and is worn at the corners, otherwise it is clear, and in excellent condition.
