This is a great looking original Civil War era CDV image of Union General William Farquhar Barry (1818-1879). The face of the card is a bust view image of the General in his General uniform with the pencil inscription identification down below. Barry was born in New York City on August 18, 1818. He graduated from West Point Military Academy in 1838. He fought during the Seminole war and then was sent to Kansas. He was the chief of artillery for Union General Irvin McDowell and then for General George McClellan. On August 20, 1861 he was appointed the rank of Brig. General. He spent much of the next few years being in charge of the fences of Washington, DC. Then in 1864 he was chief of artillery on the staff of General William Tecumseh Sherman and served throughout the Atlanta campaign. He died in Baltimore on July 18, 1879. He is buried in Buffalo, New York. The overall size of a CDV image is approximately 2.5 inches by 4 inches in size. On the back of the card it has the photographer mark of the New York firm of Anthony. It is a nice touch on an already wonderful image. This is a great looking image of one of the hard fighting Union Generals.
