    Union Officer William Sully Beebe: Signed West Point Graduation Photograph of Civil War Medal of Honor Recipient William Beebe. Approximately 6.5" x 8.5", signed on the mat "William S. Beebe / Philadelphia, Pa." William Sully Beebe (1841-1898) was an 1863 graduate of West Point. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for voluntarily leading a successful assault on a fortified position at Cane River Crossing, Louisiana, on April 23, 1864. This handsome albumen image features Beebe in his West Point cadet's uniform and bears modest age toning; the top corners clipped (hidden by the mat) and with a trivial amount of surface loss to the lower left corner (also hidden by the mat). The mat is likewise age toned displaying a few modest creases, else the image and mat are in very good condition.
