William T. Sherman and Staff War-date Photo

sherman and staff

PRICE…SOLD


Featured here is an exquisite turn-of-the-20th-century 8.5” x 6.5” photo of General Sherman and his staff taken in May 1865, affixed to a 14” x 11” mount with a caption affixed above, implying the photo was made from the original image. Reading, in part: “These historic photographs…cost the Government over $20,000, and their value is now inestimable. The few prints extant…are treasures…few persons, indeed, know that they exist.” In fine condition, with wear to edges and corners of the mount. Among those pictured in addition to Sherman are John A. Logan and Daniel Sickles. A desirable display piece in an uncommonly large size, quite possibly one of just a scant number to exist. This would make a perfect addition to your rare Civil War photo collection.
