CDV of Col. Percy Wyndam, 1st NJ Cav. Wearing Fabulous Corps Badge, Plus a 6th Corps Amputee
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Lot of 2: Brady CDV of Col. Percy Wyndham, 1st NJ Cav., wearing fabulous badge. The English born Wyndham was a flamboyant soldier-of-fortune who rose to brigade command in spite of his grandiose personality. Captured at Port Republic on June 6, 1862 after a rash charge against Turner Ashby's men, he was later exchanged and nurtured a personal vendetta against the cavalier John Mosby, whose guerilla tactics he deplored as dishonorable, pronouncing Mosby a "horse thief." Wyndham performed well during Stoneman's Raid and was absolutely brilliant at Brandy Station where he was wounded on June 9, 1863 while leading a charge up Fleetwood Hill. He was discharged in July 1864 and quickly returned to Europe in 1866, joining the staff of Garibaldli before venturing to India. With an unrelated carte of an unidentified captain-amputee wearing a massive metallic 6th Corps badge, possibly 122nd NY, with Marble, Syracuse, NY imprint.

Provenance:  
The Robert Trownsell Collection


Condition:  
Wyndham CDV, soiling on surface, corner and edgewear, top right corner of albumen slightly separated from mount and crinkled. Amputee CDV has lightened.
