[CIVIL WAR]. CDV of CSA General Joseph Wheeler. New York: Brady, Anthony, [1860s].

2 1/8 x 3 3/8 in. CDV on cardstock mount of Confederate General Joseph Wheeler (1836-1906) seated in a studio setting (light toning, few minor spots/smudges, light chip along right edge of print near center; wear to mount edges and corners, minor horizontal crease in lower margin of mount). 2-cent revenue stamp on verso. 

Gallantry displayed at the Battle of Shiloh earned Wheeler the first of many significant promotions in the Confederate Army. He rose from the ranks as lieutenant colonel to general. He also served as a general for the reunified United States in the Spanish-American War. Beyond the battlefield, he was a representative for the state of Alabama and served seven subsequent terms.
