    Description

    General James B. McPherson Carte de Visite Signed. 2.25" x 4". Gen. McPherson is featured in a vignette portrait bust in uniform. On a green bordered mount. McPherson has signed as a major general on the verso. Very light spots of foxing. The general's signature is very bold and bright and a very fine exemplar.

    McPherson (1828-1864) graduated first in his class from West Point in 1853 (a class that included Phillip Sheridan and John Bell Hood) and served as chief engineer to General Grant in his advance through Tennessee. He received promotions to brigadier and major general, both in 1862, and was given command of the XVII Corps where he distinguished himself in the Vicksburg Campaign. His army was in the right wing of Sherman's army during the Atlanta Campaign and McPherson was killed at the Battle of Atlanta on July 22, 1864, the highest-ranking Union officer killed during the Civil War.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
