    Union Cartes-de-Visite: Joseph Farmer Knipe, Hugh Judson Kilpatrick, Erasmus Darwin Keyes, Philip Kearny, Frederick West Lander, William High Keim and James Kinte. Eight (8) cartes including an unmarked Joseph Farmer Knipe (1823-1901); two (2) cartes of Hugh Judson Kilpatrick (1836-1881), one sitting facing camera and one sitting and facing left with head turned to camera, both by C. D. Fredricks & Company, New York; Erasmus Darwin Keyes (1810-1895) by Brady's National Portrait Gallery, New York; Philip Kearny (1815-1862) by C. D. Fredricks & Company, New York; Frederick West Lander (1821-1862) by Anthony, New York, from a negative from Brady's National Portrait Gallery (trimmed at bottom); William High Keim (1813-1862) by Anthony, New York, from a negative from Brady's National Portrait Gallery; and James Kinte by Bendann, Baltimore. Kearny, a veteran of the Mexican War (losing an arm) and various foreign conflicts (French Legion of Honor winner), entered the Union Army despite his great wealth and disability. He was killed at Chantilly on September 1, 1862. Heim had a short and less-than-stellar military career, fighting at First Bull Run, the Peninsula and Williamsburg. Keyes, a Mexican War veteran, was commander of the IV Corps, but generally performed poorly and was relieved of command on August 1, 1863. Knipe was Colonel of the 46th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He fought at Cedar Mountain (wounded), Gettysburg, Nashville and the Atlanta Campaign. James Kinte is identified on the verso of the carte as a 2nd Lieutenant in Co. K, 8th Massachusetts. Lander, an accomplished poet, surveyor and engineer, was an aide to McClellan for a brief period. He was wounded in a skirmish at Edwards' Ferry, defeated Stonewall Jackson at Hancock, Maryland, but died of natural causes (a "congestive chill") on March 2, 1862. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
