Click on an image to enlarge
This is an authentic CDV image of Confederate General James Longstreet (1821-1904). The image shows Longstreet with his thick beard and his uniform from the bust view. On the back of the card it is unmarked so it could be sold by any retailer without advertising for the actual maker. Longstreet was a West Pointer that resigned as a Major in the U.S. Army in June of 1861 to Join the Confederacy as a Brigadier General. As a Major General he commanded a division and as a Lieutenant general he was placed in charge of the 1st Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia. In September he was sent with part of His Corps to Tennessee. This was for his disagreement about strategy with Lee at Gettysburg. After he commanded the left wing at the Battle of Chickamauga he was placed in charge of the Department of East Tennessee. He was severely wounded during the Battle of the Wilderness but resumed his command in October of 1864. He was with General Lee for the surrender at Appomattox. The back of the card has the desirable photographer's mark of the Bayswater England studio of Walker but what makes it really special is the Pensacola, Florida publisher marking of S.C. McIntyre. This is a great Confederate CDV with the desirable Southern backmark.
