This is an authentic CDV image of Confederate General Gustave Woodson Smith. It is a nice clear CDV of the general in fine suit of civilian clothes. Smith was born in Georgetown, Kentucky in 1821. He graduated from West Point Military Academy in 1842. He was an Engineer. During the Mexican War he was brevetted three times. He also served as an instructor at West Point. When the Civil War started he was street commissioner in New York City. He was commissioned as a Major General in the Confederate Army on September 19th 1861. He commanded a wing of the Army of Northern Virginia when General Joe Johnston was wounded at Seven Pines. He resigned in January 1863 but his service wasn't over. He went to Georgia where he served as a Major General with the state. He wrote a couple of boos after the War. Smith is buried in New London, Connecticut. 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 it has the desirable photographer marking of Anthony and notes it was made form one of Mathew Brady's negatives. The front of the image has a small spot of damage as you can see and it is priced accordingly. It is a fine original CDV that will make a solid addition to any Confederate Civil War collection.
