This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General Thomas Foster Gallagher (182-1883). Gallagher was born on January 17, 1822. He was the kernel of the 11th Pennsylvania reserve troops and also served as kernel of the 54th, Pennsylvania emergency troops. On March 13, 1865 he received the rank of brevet Brigadier General for his" faithful and meritorious services". The CDV Image has the photographer and engraver mark of Martien of Philadelphia. The image shows the General in his uniform. These CDV images were an important part of history from the Civil War era. It was the first practical way to bring images of a famous personality home to the regular people. The people wanted to be able to put a face with the names they read about in the newspapers. You could order through newspaper ads or at local photography studios, several images of famous personalities for a reasonable amount. The CDV images were made by applying a thin paper photo image of the famous person of the day to a heavier paper card. This made the image more durable and easier to display and also added uniformity to the size. The overall size of a CDV image is approximately 2.5 inches by 4 inches in size. This is a solid original Civil War Union CDV image.
