    Description

    General Sherman and his Generals Carte de Visite. General Sherman was an accomplished general for the Union during the Civil War, although he did receive some criticism for his actions, such as his "scorched earth" policy and his reported nervous breakdown. This CDV features Sherman seated in the middle of his staff officers. Each one has been identified in ink underneath the image. Pictured are: Oliver Howard, John Logan, William Hazen, Jefferson C. Davis, Henry Slocum, J.A. Mower, and Francis Blair. This photo might have been signed by Mower on the verso, but research of his signature has proved sparse. At any rate, this is a fine exquisite photograph of the man who many called "The First Modern General" and his trusted officers. In very fine condition; crisp and dark emulsion; double lined gilt border; square corners; ink notations on recto and verso; Anthony/Brady imprint; 2-cent proprietary stamp on verso.
