CDV is a three-quarter standing view of General Samuel Wiley Crawford. He is wearing a dark colored double breasted frock coat with shoulder boards and dark colored trousers. At the bottom of the mount is an inscription which reads, “BRADY, NEW YORK”.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint which reads, “BRADY’S NATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT GALLERIES, BROADWAY & TENTH STREET, NEW YORK & NO. 352 PENNSYLVANIA AV. WASHINGTON, D.C.”

Image is clear and the contrast is good. Surface has some light dirt from age.

Samuel Wylie Crawford (November 8, 1829 – November 3, 1892) was a United States Army surgeon and a Union general in the American Civil War.

Transferring to the infantry early in the war, he led a brigade at Cedar Mountain which routed a division that included Stonewall Jackson’s unit, though it was later driven back. Severely wounded at Antietam, he was back in action at Gettysburg, where his division drove the Confederates out of ‘Death Valley’ beside Little Round Top, with Crawford dramatically seizing the colors and leading from the front. Although this was a relatively minor engagement, Crawford tried for years to become officially acknowledged as the sole savior of Gettysburg, but without success. The preservation of the battlefield, however, is largely due to his efforts.

In the last days of the war, his division went astray at Five Forks, causing his corps commander, Maj. Gen. Gouverneur K. Warren, to miss the attack while searching for them - one of the pretexts used by Sheridan for his controversial sacking of Warren.
