Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General George Gibson. Gibson entered the regular Army in 1808. He served as the 11th Quartermaster General of the U.S. Army serving from 1816-1818. He was an infantry officer in the War of 1812 and served under Andrew Jackson in the Seminole Indian campaign. After the office of Quartermaster General was reorganized he was appointed Commissary General of Subsistence which post he held until his death at age 86 in September 1861. He received his rank of brevet Brigadier General in 1826 for "10 years of faithful service in one grade." For his services during the Mexican war he received the rank of brevet Major-General in 1848. 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. On the back of the card it has the Chicago, Illinois photo studio mark of the A;ex Hessler Gallery. The image is produced after the Civil War but is in fine condition and depicts a scarce General's image. The overall size of a CDV image is approximately 2.5 inches by 4 inches in size. This is a solid original Civil War Union CDV image.
