Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War Brevet Brigadier George Bernard Drake. During the Civil War, he initially served in the 12th, Massachusetts Infantry as a 2nd Lieutenant. His next position was 1st Lieutenant in the 6th US Infantry. At the rank of Captain. He served on the staff of Major General George L. Hartsuff. He rose again to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, AAG, and Chief of Staff of the 23rd Army Corps and later in the same position for the department of the Gulf. He received his promotion to brevet Brigadier General on March 13th 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 photographer Mark from Boston, Massachusetts. It also has the George Washington tax stamp as well as what is believed to be an original autograph of General Drake. 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.
