CDV is a three-quarter standing view of General Stoneman wearing a dark colored double breasted frock coat with shoulder straps and trousers with sash and belt. In one hand he holds his hat, while in the other hand his sword and gloves.

George Stoneman, Jr. (August 8, 1822 – September 5, 1894) was a United States Army cavalry officer, trained at West Point, where his room-mate was Stonewall Jackson. In the Civil War, he became Adjutant to George B. McClellan, who did not appreciate the use of centralized cavalry, and was therefore outperformed by the Confederates, who did.

At Chancellorsville, under Joseph Hooker, Stoneman failed in an ambitious attempt to penetrate behind enemy lines, getting bogged down at an important river crossing. Hooker's sharp criticism of Stoneman may have been partly aimed at deflecting the heavy blame being directed at himself for the loss of this major battle that most generals believed to be winnable.

While commanding cavalry under William Tecumseh Sherman in Georgia, Stoneman was captured, but soon exchanged. In the last weeks of the war, he led raids into North Carolina and Virginia. Stoneman was governor of California between 1883 and 1887.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint which is covered with a stamp that reads, “EARLE’S GALLERIES & LOOKING GLASS WARE ROOMS, 816 CHESNUT STREET PHILADELPHIA.

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