    Union General William T. Sherman: Five Cartes de Visite. Famous for his March to the Sea, Sherman is shown here in four different CDV poses and an additional image of Sherman on the top of a railroad car with four other men. All measure 2.5" x 4" and are in very good condition. The images are by E. & H. T. Anthony of New York, C. Fredricks of New York, and George F. Ayer of Portland. The remaining close shot of Sherman is from an unknown photographer. All of these images show Sherman in the uniform of a major general. The fifth CDV is of Sherman sitting atop a flatbed rail car with four other men identified by handwriting on the back as General Brown, Colonel Anderson, Mr. Campbell, and Mr. Plumb.

    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.
