The Crittenden, Crawford, Couch, Cochrane, and Clay cartes are by Anthony, New York, with the Crittenden, Crawford, Couch, and Clay made from negatives from Brady's National Portrait Gallery. Cox was a Corps Commander, Governor of Ohio and Secretary of the Interior who fought at Antietam, South Mountain, Franklin, Nashville and Kinston. Corcoran was a colonel in the 69th New York Militia Regiment. He raised Irish troops for the war and was divisional commander of the VII Corps. He died on December 22, 1863 after falling from his horse and being crushed. Crittenden fought at Shiloh, Stone's River, Tullahoma and Chickamauga. He was the son of Kentucky Senator John J. Crittenden. Crawford had a distinguished service record, participating in many of the pivotal battles of the war, including Winchester, Cedar Mountain, Antietam (wounded), Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Petersburg. Couch was a corps commander who fought at the Peninsula, Second Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Antietam and Gettysburg. Clay was a noted abolitionist and politician who saw some action in the Mexican War, but practically none in the Civil War. Lincoln appointed him Minister to Russia during the Cabinet shake-up that saw Secretary of War Cameron replaced by Edwin Stanton. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
