Four CDVs: John B. McIntosh, James W. McMillan, George Meade, Stephen Miller
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Lot of 4: Anonymous view of Bvt. Maj. Gen. John B. McIntosh, Col. 3rd Pa. Cav.; an outstanding officer who accumulated six wartime brevets including Gettysburg and Winchester, commanded a cavalry brigade under Pleasanton and Averell, later lost a leg at Winchester. Fredricks & Co., New York CDV of Maj. Gen. George Gordon Meade '31; received the Thanks of Congress for "his skill and heroic valor" while in command of the Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg. Meade's lethargic pursuit of Lee in the wake of Gettysburg blemished an otherwise solid battlefield performance. Soon overshadowed by the more aggressive U.S. Grant, Meade's legacy was (and still is) short-lived due to his early death in 1872. Anonymous view of Brig. Gen. Stephen Miller, ink identified beneath portrait, Col. 7th MN; associated with the 1862 Sioux Uprising and the Draconian measures employed therein, later Governor of Minnesota. With a CDV of James W. McMillan, with Guay's Photographic Gallery, St. Charles St., N.O. backmark.
