Rufus Ingalls, 16th Quartermaster General, Autographed CDV
6/23/2011 - American History, Including the Civil War
A cdv portrait of Rufus Ingalls, with R.W. Addis, McClees Gallery, Washington, D.C. backmark, and inked inscription below image Yours Truly / Rufus Ingalls.

Ingalls (1818-1893) served as the chief quartermaster of the Army of the Potomac through a succession of failed commanders. His organizational skills earned him praise and the commendation of U.S. Grant, a fellow 1843 classmate, who personally invited Ingalls to the McLean House to witness Lee’s surrender. Upon graduating from the Academy, Ingalls was commissioned into the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen and by the Mexican War had transferred to the 2nd Dragoons. Thereafter, he assumed wide ranging Staff duties in the quartermaster department. Ingalls was appointed brigadier general USV in May 1863 and brevetted major general USA and USV in March 1865 for much understated "faithful and meritorious service during the war." He reverted to colonel in the post-war army and was promoted to quartermaster general in February 1882 with the rank of brigadier general, retiring in July 1883.
