    Description

    Union Major General George Gordon Meade: Alexander Gardner Carte de Visite Signed "Geo. G. Meade / Maj. Genl U.S.A.". Approximately 2.5" x 4" with an Alexander Gardner backmark, published by Philp & Solomons, Washington, D.C. The general poses seated in full uniform, his kepi resting on his lap. Boldly and clearly signed at the lower edge of the mount. George Meade (1815-1872) was an 1835 graduate of West Point and served with distinction in the Second Seminole War, Mexican-American War and most notably in the Civil War. He served in many of the major battles of the war, probably best known for his defeat of Lee at Gettysburg. Except for some trivial age toning, this fantastic image is in fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
