Rare Autographed CDV of George Gordon Meade Signed as Maj. Gen. Comm. A. of P.
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Rare view of the stoic looking Meade ink signed beneath standing portrait followed by Maj. Genl. Comd. A. P. With Gutekunst, Philadelphia imprint. The precise date of this important CDV cannot be ascertained as Grant effectively commanded the Army of the Potomac from the spring of 1864 onward with Meade a subordinate, but still nominally in command until Lee's surrender. This carte is the centerpiece of any Army of the Potomac collection.

Provenance:  
The Robert Trownsell Collection


Condition:  
Carte with minor mottling at top; possibly very slightly trimmed at very bottom, still VG, if not better.
Sold: $4,993.75
