Back mark: “E. Anthony, New York/ From Photographic Negative/ In Brady’s National Portrait Gallery.” Clean crisp image of bareheaded Brigadier General  Heintzelman posed w/coat or cloak draped over his left arm, edged in striking purple.

Heintzelman graduated in the West Point class of 1826 along w/Albert Sidney Johnston. He won a brevet of Major for gallantry in the Mexicion War and in 1861 was commissioned Colonel of the 17th Infantry on May 14th 1861, and within days was jumped to Brigadier and within a year to Major General of Volunteers. Heintzelman commanded the III Corps during McClellan’s 1862 Peninsula Campaign, and the 2nd Manassas Campaign without distinguishing himself. During the remainder of the war he was employed in commanding a succession of posts in the Washington Defenses, later commanding in Texas, serving on various boards until his retirement in 1869.

Solid collectible for Civil War commander aficionados, and quite attractive with its purple trim.
