    Daniel Butterfield Signed Carte de Visite. 2.5" x 4.25", a profile bust in uniform, with an R.W. Addis, Washington, D.C. backstamp on verso. Signed below the image: "Daniel Butterfield U.S.A."

    Daniel Butterfield (1831-1901) was Chief of Staff for Joe Hooker and fought at the Peninsula, Malvern Hill, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Chattanooga and the Atlanta Campaign. He designed the Federal system of corps badges and has been credited with composing "Taps". Butterfield's reputation was somewhat tarnished after he became involved in the feud between generals Burnside and Meade. However, he later was issued the Congressional Medal of Honor, 30 years after the fact, for his heroism at Gaines' Mill.

    Condition: Light uneven toning throughout. Minor corner bumping.
