This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General Robert Frederick Smith. He was born on August 2, 1806 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Before the war he was a farmer and stock raiser in Illinois. Smith served as Colonel Of the 16th Illinois Infantry. On the back of the card it has the Nashville, Tennessee photographer Mark of the Schleier's studio. This is a nice addition to an already wonderful image. He received his promotion to brevet Brigadier General was also on March 13, 1865, for his distinguished services in the field. 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 bust 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. 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.
