Located on the Pamunkey River, White House plantation and the landing around it became a supply base for the Army of the Potomac during the Peninsula Campaign. The house was originally in the family of Martha Washington but at the time of the Civil War it was owned by W. H. F. “Rooney” Lee the son of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. When McClellan’s army arrived a wheelchair bound Mrs. Mary Anna Lee, wife of the General, was living there. McClellan gave her safe passage to Richmond.

During the Seven Day’s battles when McClellan shifted his base of supplies to the James River the White House plantation was burned. Rebuilt after the war it burned again in 1875 and was never rebuilt.

This image shows the plantation house during the spring of 1862.

Image is clear with excellent contrast and is clean. Bottom front of mount has publishing information with 1862 date.

Reverse has a printed paper label that reads “BRADY’S ALBUM GALLERY NO. 384 / WHITE HOUSE, FORMERLY RESIDENCE OF MRS. CUSTIS WASHINGTON, NOW THE RESIDENCE OF COL. LEE. 17 MAY 1862.” This is followed by copyright information.   [ad]
