Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General Milton Smith Littlefield. During the Civil War, Littlefield saw service as a captain in the 14th Illinois Infantry. He also served on the staff of Major General Stephen A. Hurlbut. When there was a demand for officers to be in charge of the black regiments, he served as Colonel of the 21st United States Colored Troops. After the Civil War, he is best known as being the "Prince of Carpetbaggers". This was because of his many involvements in shady money schemes. He received his promotion to Brevet Brigadier General on November 26, 1864, for his distinguished services in the field. When we say he is a "Brevet" Brigadier General this means that because of his service to the country he was awarded the rank as an honor. This is a bust view of the general in a stately pose.The CDV images were made by applying a thin paper photo image of the famous person of the day to a heavier paper card. This made the image more durable and easier to display and also added uniformity to the size. The overall size of a CDV image is approximately 2.5 inches by 4 inches in size. On the back of the card, it has the Philadelphia photographer Mark of Edward P. Hipple. This is a solid original Civil War Union CDV image.
