This is an exceptional display piece! It is a wonderful CDV image of Brevet Brigadier General Nicholas along with Lieutenant Colonel Frederick Boardman. The 2 men are standing in full uniform with their hats in their hands. The 1st man, Nicholas Wykoff Day who would later be given the Brevet (Honorary) rank of Brigadier General. It states that he was given this because of "gallant and meritorious services at the battle of Opequon, Virginia which is also better known as the 3rd battle of Winchester, Virginia. Nicholas Day enlisted on April 26, 1861 from Plattsburg, New York as a Sergeant Major in the 71st New York. In 1862 he was commissioned into the 96th New York infantry and served with them for 6 months. In September 1862 he was commissioned in the field and staff of the 131st New York infantry and served with them until July 1865 when he was mustered out in Savannah, Georgia. During those times he rose through the ranks from Sergeant Major to the rank of full Colonel in January 1863. He received the rank of Brevet Brigadier General on March 13, 1865. The other man is Lieutenant Colonel Frederick A. Boardman ( d. 1864). Boardman enlisted as a Major in the 4th , Wisconsin Cavalry. He had previously served in the Navy, accompanying Matthew Perry to Japan in 1852-1854. Boardman was killed in May 1864 at Comite River, LA. . The image is vividly clear and on the back of the card it has the New Orleans, Louisiana studio mark of the firm owned by B. Moses. This is a great image with a lot of character.
