This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General Albermarle Cady he was born on February 15, 1807 in Keene, New Hampshire. He graduated from West Point Military Academy with the class of 1829. He served during the Mexican war as well as the Seminole war. He was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel of the 7th US Infantry on June 6, 1861. He commanded the district of Oregon from October 1861 until April is 1862. Then he served with the Department of the Pacific and back to New England before retiring on may 18 1864 for ill health. He retired at the rank of Colonel of the 8th US Infantry. He received his promotion to Brevet Brigadier General was also on March 13, 1865, for his "long and faithful services in the Army". 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. This is a solid original Civil War Union CDV image.
