Lot of 13 albumen photographs of Civil War generals, each approx. 2 x 3.25 in., on cabinet card-sized mount with applied paper label identifying the subject and imprint, "1861-1865 - The War for the Union - Photographic History." Details relative to the photographic series are printed on mount verso, including the following: "A quarter of a century has passed away since the sun painted these real scenes of the Great War, and the 'negatives' have undergone chemical changes which makes it slow and difficult to work to get 'prints' from them. Of course no more 'negatives' can be made, as the scenes represented by this series of war views have passed away forever..." Published by John C. Taylor, Hartford, CT.
