Civil War Governor, Andrew G. Curtin, Autographed CDV
6/23/2011 - American History, Including the Civil War
A cdv portrait of Andrew Gregg Curtin, the 15th Governor of Pennsylvania who served during the Civil War, signed below image A.G. Curtin, with Henszey & Co.'s Philadelphia backmark.

Curtin (1817-1894) was an energetic Civil War-era Governor who admirably served his state as a Republican from 1861-1867. He made many significant contributions to the Union war effort, including holding the Loyal War Governors' Conference in 1862 in Altoona, PA; forming the Pennsylvania State Agency in Washington, and another branch in Nashville, TN, to provide support to wounded soldiers on the battlefield and returned home; and founding the state-funded Orphan's School to aid and educate children of military men who died for the Union cause. After ending his second term, Curtin switched to the Democratic Party and was appointed Minister to Russia by President U.S. Grant. He also served three terms in Congress, from 1881-1887.
