CDV of Controversial Colonel Ulrich Dalgren, KIA
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Carte including period ink notation killed, with Henry Ulke, Washington, D.C. imprint. Son of Admiral Dalgren, Col. Dalgren was serving as a volunteer ADC when he was killed during the bungled Raid on Richmond on March 2, 1864. Documents found on Dalgren's body confirm that one dark objective of the raid was to eliminate Jefferson Davis and his cabinet. For decades, the papers were an ongoing source of controversy but are now believed to be authentic, albeit authored by Dalgren himself for reasons that defy easy explanation, but without any obvious endorsement linking the US government to the failed plot.
