Maker back mark: "M.B. Brady & Co./ National Photographic Portrait Galleries/ No. 353 Pennsylvania Ave./ Washington DC & New York." Plus circular ink stamp, dated "June/ 23/ 1866". Litho CDV of the heroine of the John Greenleaf Whittier poem - "Barbara Frietchie" - who supposedly waved a US flag at rebel troops passing through Frederick, Md, under the command of Stonewall Jackson.

"Shoot, if you must this old gray head
But spare your country's flag she said
A shade of sadness, a blush of shame
Over the face of the leader came
The nobler nature within him stirred
To life at that woman's deed and word
"Who touches a hair on yon gray head
dies like a dog! March on!" he said.

The first two lines of the above stanza are printed below Frietchie's name on the front of the card. Card exhibits very slight wear, w/all corners trimmed. Else VG. Hard clear plastic casing. Excellent collectible.
