This is an authentic CDV image of Medal of Honor Winner John Coughlin. During the Civil War, he served as Lieutenant Colonel of the 10th, New Hampshire Infantry. He later served as a provost marshal general for the Army of the James. Coughlin was awarded the Medal of Honor 24 August 1893 for gallant and meritorious service during a sudden night attack at Swift's Creek, Virginia, 9 May 1864 upon Burnham's Brigade, resulting in much confusion. Without waiting for orders, he led his regiment forward and interposed a line of battle between the advancing enemy and saving the guns.The image shows the Colonel in his fine double-breasted frockcoat. 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. The back of the card has the Eaton studio mark from Manchester, New Hampshire. You have a fantastic image of this brave union Brevet General who was a Medal of Honor recipient. It is a fine original CDV that will make a solid addition to any Civil War collection.
