Autographed CDV of Gettysburg Interest: Gouverneur Warren, Chief Engineer, AOP
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Brady/Anthony carte of Maj. Gen. Gouverneur Warren '46, ink autographed beneath portrait, Topographical Engineer, Col. 5th NY; Chief Engineer AOP. On July 2nd Warren's fortuitous reconnaissance on Little Round Top spotted Hood's rapidly advancing Confederates threatening the entire Union position on Cemetery Ridge. Warren commandeered Vincent's and Weed's brigades and threw them up the rocky slope just in time to form a thin line defending LTR, and in due time would be acknowledged as the savior of Gettysburg. Warren was later elevated to command of the 5th Corps during the Overland campaign but was relieved by Sheridan at the very end of the war with Grant's complicity. An exceptional officer with four wartime brevets, including Gaines Mill, Gettysburg, and Bristoe Station.
