Lot of 2:

Chipman, Henry Laurens (1823-1910). Chipman enlisted early in the war as a Lieut. Colonel. He was commissioned into F&S of the 2nd MI Infy. The following year, he joined the regular army as Captain, and was commissioned in F&S of the 11th Infy. He became Colonel of the 1st MI Colored Infantry in April 1864. He received his brevet BG in March 1865. He mustered out in September 1865. Cdv with no photographer's ID, light tinting of cheeks. Pencil ID on verso.

Corbin, Henry Clark (1842-1909). Born in rural Monroe Township, Clermont County, OH, (near Batavia, the county seat), Corbin did not enlist immediately when the Civil War broke out. He was teaching and studying law, but by the second summer, he enlisted, becoming a "lifer." He volunteered as 2nd Lieut. in the 83rd OH Infy, transferring to the 79th a month later. In Nov. 1863 he was commissioned major in the 14th USCT, eventually achieving promotions to Lt. Col. and Colonel of the regiment, and receiving a brevet in the omnibus awards of March 1865. He mustered out in March 1866, then was commissioned 2nd Lieut. in the U.S. 2nd Infy., and promoted to Captain of the 38th, a Buffalo Soldier unit, in May of that year. He was appointed to the staff of R.B. Hayes in 1877, and continued on Garfield's staff. Corbin was with Garfield both when he was shot and in New Jersey when he died. He was promoted to major in the A.G. Dept. in 6/80, Lt. Col. in 6/89, can Col. 5/96. He was promoted to Adjutant General of the U.S. Army with the rank of full Brigadier General in 1898. He achieved Major General in 1900, and Lieut. Gen. in 1906. He commanded the Division of the Philippines in 1904. He retired in 1906 and died three years later in Washington, DC. This cdv of a very young Corbin has the backmark of "Brigham Bishop, Photographer, Army of the Cumberland. Sole Owner of the Life Negatives of all the Cumberland Generals." Signed on front as Lt. Col. 14th USCT.
