CDV of Gen. William Haynes Lytle
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
A vignette, by Schwing & Rudd, Photographers, Army of the Cumberland, of Brig. Gen. William H. Lytle, Col. 10th OVI; Ohio's esteemed 'poet-general' wounded at Carnifex Ferry, and later left for dead at Perryville while commanding a brigade in McCook's corps. Lytle's premonition of his death is well known and so it came to be at Chickamauga where he was mortally wounded while leading a charge on Sept 20. General Lytle's subsequent funeral obsequies in Cincinnati were unparalleled, lavish, and thronged by thousands wishing to pay their last respects.
