Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War era CDV image of Civil War General Francis Preston Blair, Jr. Blair was born in Lexington, Kentucky on February 19th 1821. He graduated law school and practiced in St. Louis where he was elected to Congress in 186 and 1860. He organized 7 regiments for the Union and was promoted all the way up to the rank of Major General by November of 1862. In 1868 he ran for Vice-President as a Democrat. He died on July 8th 1875 and is buried in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis. This is a knee-up view of the general seated in a stately pose. He is wearing his double breasted frock coat with his sword by his side and you can see the grip of his pistol in the holster on his belt. 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 is left unmarked but has some ink notations of who Blair was. This is a solid original Civil War Union CDV image.
