Autographed CDV of Gen. Ambrose Burnside
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
CDV of Maj. Gen. Burnside signed in ink beneath portrait, with Anthony/Brady backmark.

He was honored with the "Thanks of Congress" in a wartime resolution dated Jan. 28, 1864. Post-war, he prospered as a businessman and Rhode Island politician.
