This is a great looking original Civil War era CDV image of Union General James Scott Negley (1826-1901). Negley was born near Pittsburgh on December 22, 1826. He served with Pennsylvania during the Mexican War. In 1861 he became Brigadier General of the 18th Division and he an organized many of the volunteers of the Pittsburgh area. In 1862 he was one of the generals that helped defend Nashville, Tennessee. Because of his services at the battle of Stones River. He was promoted to Major General. After the disaster at Chickamauga, he never directed troops in the field again. After the Civil War, he returned to Pittsburgh and was elected to Congress. 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. On the back of the card it has the desirable backmark of the Anthony firm of New York. It is a nice touch on an already wonderful image. This is a great looking image of one of the Union Generals.
