Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General John Augustus Bolles. During the Civil War. He served as a major and aide-de-camp on the staff of Major General John A. Dix, who was also his brother-in-law. He also served as a major and judge advocate for the 7th Army Corps. He received his promotion to brevet Brigadier General was also on July 17, 1865, for his "faithful and meritorious services". 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 New York photo studio mark of the J. Gurney firm. It also has the ink autograph of Bolles just before he was promoted to Brevet Brigadier General. He dated it July 1865 and since he listed his rank as Lieutenant Colonel, we know that it was signed within the 1st 16 days of July 1865. After that he would resign this with his honorary rank of Brevet Brigadier General. 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.
