This is a great looking display! it is a wonderful display that contains three original Civil War era CDV images of Union General Samuel Peter Heintzelman (1805-1880) and also a hand written letter from the general. The face of the cards each have a fine image of the General in his uniform. Heintzelman was born in Manheim, Pennsylvania on September 30, 1805. He graduated West Point military Academy in 1826. He fought bravely during the Mexican war and earned a brevet of major for gallantry at Haumantla. He was commissioned as Colonel of the 17th US infantry on may 14th 1861. 3 days later, he received the promotion to Brigadier General. He was with general George B McClellan during the early days and was wounded at Manassas. He commanded that many major battles, including Yorktown, 7 Days, and 2nd Manassas. After the war he stayed in the Army until retiring in 1869, at the rank of Major General. The overall size of a CDV image is approximately 2.5 inches by 4 inches in size. the letter inside the frame was written from Washington, DC on February 26, 1863. He is writing to a man in St. Louis, Missouri. He proudly states that dates that he was promoted to the rank of Major General. What a great topic for this short but concise note. The pieces are beautifully matted in a frame that measures 12 inches wide and stands 16 1/2 inches tall. You get all the images as well as the autographed letter for $350.
