Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier General John Cooke Cox. Cox was born in February 1817, Pennsylvania. During the Civil War. He served in the Commissary of Subsistence. He served as the chief of that branch of service for the 17th Army Corps. He received his promotion to brevet Brigadier General on July 4, 1863, 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 photographer Mark from Vicksburg, Mississippi at the D.P. Barr studio. This is a great backmark to have on the CDV. If you notice along the bottom of the card it has the partial autograph still visible as well. 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.
