Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General William Augustus Nichols. Nichols was born on May 12, 1818 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He graduated West Point Military Academy with the class of 1838. He fought during the Mexican War. During the Civil War, he served as adjutant general of the department of the East until November 1861 and then with the Department of New York until December 1861. During the rest of the Civil War, he served in the Adjutant Generals Department. After the Civil War, he served as General William T Sherman's Chief of Staff and later as General Sheridan's Chief of Staff. He died on April 8, 1869 in St. Louis, Missouri. He received his promotion to brevet Brigadier General on September 24, 1864, for his "meritorious and faithful services during the war." He received his brevet appointment to Major General. On March 13, 1865, for "meritorious and faithful services during the war." When we say he is a "Brevet" General this means that because of his service to the country he was awarded the rank as an honor. This is a knee-up view of the general in a stately pose. 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 back of the card, it has the photographer mark of the Chicago, Illinois firm of Alex Hesler. This is a solid original Civil War Union CDV image.
