    Ulysses S. Grant Photo Signed "U. S. Grant / General" below and directly onto the image. 14" x 18". This famous, handsome portrait of the successful Union general at the apex of his Civil War career features the uniformed general standing. It was taken by Frederick Gutekunst only days after General Lee surrendered his army at Appomattox Courthouse. On the triumphant general's left arm is a black mourning band in remembrance of Abraham Lincoln.

    The large Gutekunst photographer's imprint on a paper label is affixed to the reverse. The imprint states in pencil that this image was originally sent to Mrs. A. M. Bryan of Allegheny City, Pennsylvania. Some minor spotting and soiling to the image, as well as minor discolorations on the general's face. Darkly toned on the reverse.
