Click on an image to enlarge
This is one of the most desirable of all Civil War images. It is a clear CDV style image of George Armstrong Custer. The paper card measures 2-1/2 inches by 4 inches in overall size. It is a from-life image that shows Custer in his fine uniform. This image is one of the poses from a session photographed by Matthew Brady. Here, Custer in a seated pose, dressed in his General's frock coat. In April of 1865 he was promoted to the rank of Major General. After the Civil War the need for command officers was no longer there and many, to stay in service, accepted demotions to a lower rank and paid the wages of rank now held, but was always given the respect and the title of the higher rank previously held. After the War, Custer was required to revert to his previous permanent rank of Captain. He then entered the painstakingly slow promotion process that was customary in the small regular army. That's why Custer was always referred to as "General Custer". This statement came from a great web-site on Custer at On the back of the card, it has the desirable studio marking from the Anthony firm and notes that it was made from one of Matthew Brady's negatives. This is a wonderful classic pose of one of the most famous personalities of the Civil War.
