    Confederate Cartes-de-Visite: Samuel Garland, Jr., Franklin Gardner, Daniel Marsh Frost and Thomas C. Hindman. Four (4) cartes including Samuel Garland, Jr. (1830-1862) by Tanner & Vanness, Lynchburg, Virginia (carte chipped at middle of right hand edge, without affecting image); unmarked Franklin Gardner (1823-1873); full-standing Daniel Marsh Frost (1823-1900) by E & H.T. Anthony, New York; and Thomas C. Hindman (1828-1868) by Anthony, New York. Garland, a VMI graduate, served fearlessly and with reckless abandon during the war. He fought a First Bull Run, Williamsburg (wounded), Seven Pines (two horses shot out from under him), Second Bull Run, Antietam and South Mountain (killed in action). Gen. Daniel Hill said he was "the most fearless man I ever knew." Facing starvation, Franklin Gardner surrendered Port Hudson to Union troops on July 8,1863 and was taken prisoner. A New York native, Frost moved to St. Louis and secretly plotted with Governor Claiborne Jackson to capture the U. S. Arsenal there using troops he trained outside the city. Hindman commanded the Trans-Mississippi Department and later raised "HIndman's Legion". He was wounded at Shiloh and Chickamauga and suffered an eye injury at Kennesaw Mountain that left him unfit for service. He managed to "snatch defeat from the jaws of victory" at Prairie Grove, Arkansas and fled to Mexico after the war. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
