    Union Cartes-de-Visite: James Scott Negley, Henry Morris Naglee, Gershom Mott, William Hopkins Morris, George Webb Morell and James A. Mulligan. Six (6) cartes including an unmarked full-standing James Scott Negley (1826-1901); Henry Morris Naglee (1815-1886) by McAllister & Brother, Philadelphia; Gershom Mott (1822-1884) by Brady's National Portrait Gallery, New York; William Hopkins Morris (1827-1900) by Brady's, New York; George Webb Morell (1815-1883) by McClees' Gallery, Washington, D.C.; and an unmarked James A. Mulligan (1830-1864). Negley organized and equipped Pennsylvania recruits. He acquitted himself well at Stone's River (Murfreesboro), but was severely criticized for his actions, or lack thereof, while in command of the 2nd Division of Thomas' XIV Corps, basically ending his military career. Naglee was a San Francisco banker and San Jose vintner. His military career was not noteworthy. A political dispute with the Military Governor of the "Restored Government of Virginia" led to his retirement from the service. Mott was Colonel of the 6th New Jersey Regiment and fought at Seven Pines, Second Bull Run (wounded), Chancellorsville (wounded), Mine Run, Spotsylvania and the Crater. Morris invented a repeating carbine in 1859. He was Colonel of the 135th New York Infantry (morphed into the 6th New York Heavy Artillery), fighting at Mine Run, the Wilderness and Spotsylvania (wounded and placed on the disabled list). Morell finished first in his West Point class of 1835. He served in the defenses of Washington and fought at the Peninsula, Seven Days, Second Bull Run and Sharpsburg. He did not prove a friendly witness at the court-martial of Fitz John Porter which effectively ended his military career. Mulligan was Colonel of the 23rd Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment. He fought at the First Battle of Lexington, briefly commanded the P.O.W. Camp Douglas in Chicago and was killed at the Second Battle of Kernstown on July 24, 1864. His last words were: "Lay me down and save the flag." From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
