This is an authentic CDV image of the Confederate statesman Robert Hunter. Hunter had an impressive history in politics before the Civil War even began. Starting in 1837 he was a member of the US House of Representatives. From 1839 until 1841 he served as Speaker of the House and is the youngest person to have ever held that position. In 1853, President Millard Fillmore offered him the position as Secretary of State, but Hunter declined. In 1860 he was the Virginia delegation choice for president, but was defeated by the nomination of Stephen a Douglas. He was expelled from the U.S. Senate for supporting secession. From 1861, 1862. He served as the Confederate states of America's Secretary of State. From 1862 until 1865 he held the position in the Confederate Senate. If his face looks familiar, it is likely because you have seen his image on the Confederate states of America $10 bill. This image shows Hunter wearing a fine suit of clothes. 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. On the reverse of the card it has the New York photographer Mark of the Anthony firm and notes it was made from one of Matthew Brady's negatives. It is a fine original CDV that will make a solid addition to any Confederate Civil War collection.
