Union General David B. Birney Clip Autograph & CDV



Offered here is a beautiful signature of Union General David B. Birney. This clipped signature with rank is mounted to a partial autograph album page and measures approximately 5 ½ x 1 ½. If you look at the last photograph I have attached, you can read about the provenance of this piece, which makes the item that much more special. Also included in this lot is an almost pristine Matthew Brady CDV of General Birney.

General Birney is most famously remembered for taking control of the 3rd Corp at Gettysburg following the wounding of General Dan Sickles. Birney had a solid fighting record during the war and died of malaria on October 18th, 1864. As you can see by the photos, these items would look awesome when framed up together!
