CDV is a chest-up view of Confederate General John Cabell Breckinridge. He is wearing a dark colored civilian frock coat, white shirt and cravat. Bottom of mount is labeled, “GEN. BRECKENRIDGE”.

Reverse has the photographer’s imprint which reads, “THE MONUMENTAL PHOTOGRAPH COMPANY, 178 W. BALTO. ST. BALTIMORE, MD”.

John Cabell Breckinridge (January 16, 1821 – May 17, 1875) was a lawyer and politician from the state of Kentucky. He represented the Commonwealth in both houses of Congress and in 1857, became the 14th and youngest-ever Vice President of the United States (1857–61). Serving in the U.S. Senate at the outbreak of the Civil War, he was expelled after joining the Confederate Army. He remains the only Senator of the United States convicted of treason against the United States of America by the Senate. He was appointed Confederate Secretary of War late in the war.

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