Product Description

Grant, Ulysses S. ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH OF GRANT AND STAFF AT COLD HARBOR, VIRGINIA, MAY 1864. “Brady / Washington” embossed on its heavy stock albumen. 8 x 5 inches; excellent tonality; museum framed.

A most uncommon image of Grant and staff, especially being produced prior to the glass negative cracking!

Included are Generals Grant, Rawlins, Duff, Badeau, Bowers, Barnard, Parker, Babcock, and Moulter; and Colonel Dent (three unidentified). In the background, peering out just to the right of the furthest figure, a Black servant stands for his own picture. Grant himself will later be photographed by himself next to the same tree. It would become the quintessential Grant photo we know today.
