    Union General Quincy A. Gillmore and His Staff on Morris Island Cabinet Card.
    9.75" x 6", published by Haas & Peale of Morris Island & Hilton Head. General Gillmore is seen seated in front of a large tent at a small table, looking over a map of the coast of South Carolina. Behind and to either side of him are members of his military staff. Below the photograph, on the mount, are penciled in numbers, corresponding to the identifications written on verso. Each member seen in the photograph (15 in total) is identified by name and position.

    Q. A. Gillmore (1825-1888) was an 1849 graduate of West Point and served with distinction during the war, commanding the 10th Corp beginning in June 1863. He became known for his superb organization of artillery and siege operations, and later helped revolutionize the use of the newly improved rifled naval guns. Towards the end of the war, he was assigned to command the Department of the South and was present when Charleston and Fort Sumter fell into Federal hands. After the war, he resigned from the army and became a prominent civil engineer and author. From the Bret J. Formichi American Civil War Rarities Collection.

    Condition: Uneven toning throughout. Some wear and bumping to the corners. Minor soiling throughout.

    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.
