    Union Cartes-de-Visite: Abel D. Streight, Thomas Greely Stevenson, Isaac Ingalls Stevens, James Blair Steedman, George Crockett Strong, Silas Stringham, Edwin Henry Stoughton and George Stoneman. Eight (8) cartes including Abel D. Streight (1828-1892) by J. Perry Elliott's City Gallery, Indianapolis (horizontal crease); Thomas Greely Stevenson (1836-1864) by J. W. Black, Boston; unmarked Isaac Ingalls Stevens (1818-1862); an unmarked James Blair Steedman (1817-1883); George Crockett Strong (1832-1863); Silas Stringham (1798-1876); Edwin Henry Stoughton (1838-1868); and George Stoneman (1822-1894). The cartes of Strong, Stringham, Stoughton, and Stoneman are by Anthony, New York, from negatives from Brady's National Portrait Gallery. Streight, a successful Indianapolis mill operator, fought at Shiloh, Perryville and Stone's River. He led one of the boldest raids of the war ("Streight's Raid") but was captured along with his troops by Nathan Bedford Forrest. Confined at Libby Prison, Streight was one of 59 men that successfully tunneled through and made their escape from Libby on February 9, 1864. Stevenson was a skilled drillmaster and served as Colonel of the 24th Massachusetts Infantry. He fought at Roanoke Island, New Bern, Goldsboro, Kinston and Morris Island. During Grant's campaign against Richmond, Stevenson was killed by a sniper on May 10, 1864. Stevens was first in the West Point class of 1839, specializing in engineering and surveying. He served as Governor of Washington Territory and was elected to Congress. He participated in the defeats at Secessionville and Second Bull Run and was killed in action at Chantilly on September 1, 1862. Steedman, a newspaper publisher and politician, was Colonel of the 14th Ohio Infantry. He fought at Mill Springs, Corinth, Perryville, Tullahoma Campaign, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Atlanta and Nashville. Strong specialized in ordnance and served under McDowell, McClellan, Butler and Gillmore. He fought at Ponchatoula, Morris Island and Battery Wagner where he sustained a thigh wound, contacting tetanus, dying shortly thereafter. Stoughton at one time was the youngest brigadier in the Union army. His military career was ruined when he got drunk, cavorted with a female spy, and was captured at Fairfax Court House by John Singleton Mosby, along with 39 of his men. Stoneman led several raids during the war, some successful, some not. He was relieved of command after Chancellorsville, reactivated for the Atlanta Campaign and was captured along with 700 troops in a joint raid with General McCook against Macon, Georgia. Upon his release, he managed to redeem himself somewhat, leading successful raids in southwestern Virginia. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
