    Description

    Gouverneur K. Warren Carte de Visite Signed "G.K. Warren Maj. Genl. Comd 5th A.C." 2.5" x 4", with a Brady's, New York imprint on verso. A vignette bust portrait of Warren, who served as a Union general of the 5th New York Infantry. Warren (1830-1882) is often referred to as the "Hero of Little Round Top" for his defense of that infamous position during the Battle of Gettysburg. He had been second in his West Point class of 1850 and led troops in the Peninsula, Second Bull Run and Antietam. At Gettysburg, it was his urging that drove Gen. Sykes's Corps to form defensive positions on the Round Tops, thereby avoiding disaster. From the Bret J. Formichi American Civil War Rarities Collection.

    Condition: Uneven toning throughout, with some soiling on verso. Else very good, with a bold signature.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
