Autographed CDV of Maj. Gen. Gouverneur K. Warren

By Brady, inked signed beneath portrait, "GK Warren." Warren had seen early service as Colonel of the 5th N.Y. taking charge of a brigade during the 1862 fighting before being rewarded with back-to-back promotions to brigadier and major general in September 1862. On July 2 at Gettysburg, Warren was serving as Chief Engineer and it was his keen eye that took notice of Hood's advancing Confederates and the threat to Cemetery Ridge. Warren quickly ordered Vincent's and Weed's brigades to form a thin barrier on Little Round Top. The epic fight that followed was a "close-run thing," but at the end of the day the Union had prevailed setting the stage for Pickett on July 3.
