This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General James Adams Ekin. During the Civil War, Ekin served in the vitally important quartermaster department. Initially as a 1st Lieutenant with the 12th, Pennsylvania Infantry. He rose through the ranks serving as chief quartermaster for the cavalry Corps of the Army of the Potomac. He served as a member of the Military Commission for the trial of the Lincoln assassination conspirators. He received his promotion to Brevet Brigadier General on 2 occasions, once on March 8, 1865, and again own March 13, 1865, for his "faithful and meritorious services in the Quartermasters Department during the war.". When we say he is a "Brevet" Brigadier General this means that because of his service to the country he was awarded the rank as an honor. This is a full view of the general in a stately pose. 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. This particular image doesn't appear to have ever been mounted on the cardboard backing. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation. 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 from one of the people in the Lincoln assassination conspirators trial.
