    Description

    Union Cavalry General George Stoneman Clipped Signature and Two Cartes de Visite. A signature, 1.2" x 3.5", from a document signed as Captain of the 2nd Cavalry, circa 1860. Together with two images; the first is a fantastic albumen, 3/4 standing pose in full uniform holding his hat and officer's sword. 2.5" x 4", on a mount with a paper label on verso over the original backmark, reading, "Earle's Galleries & Looking Glass... Philadelphia." Clipped corners, and gently toned. Pencil identification on verso. The second image is a bust portrait with an "R.W. Addis... McClees Gallery" of Washington backmark. Period identification in ink on front mount, with light soiling and foxing; the mount has been trimmed at top affecting the albumen, but well away from the central image. Stoneman (1822-1894) commanded cavalry forces at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville; he later served under Sherman in Georgia.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
