General Grant at Lookout Mountain, November, 1863, Albumen Photograph
An albumen photograph, unmarked, but most likely by Royan Linn, who operated a gallery atop Lookout Mountain, including during the Civil War, and took many images of Union officers at this location. This image captures Gen. U.S. Grant with four of his officers inspecting Lookout Mountain at the spot where Gen. Hooker's men had waved a victory flag just a few days earlier on November 25, 1863, 7.75 x 4.75 in., on cream-colored mount, 9.75 x 8.25 in. Individuals in photo identified from left to right: U.S. Grant, Gen. J.A. Rawlins (seated, with back against tree), Gen. Webster behind him, Col. Clark Lagow leaning against tree, and Col. William Hillyer in right foreground, plus an orderly seated by the dirt path.
