CDV is a three-quarter standing view of General George McClellan. He is wearing a dark colored double breasted frock coat with shoulder boards, dark colored trousers, white shirt and cravat.

Reverse has a very faded photographer’s imprint which reads, “C.D. FREDRICK’S PHOTOGRAPHY, NEW YORK, PARIS”.

George Brinton McClellan (December 3, 1826 – October 29, 1885) was an American soldier, civil engineer, railroad executive, and politician. A graduate of West Point, McClellan served with distinction during the Mexican-American War, and later left the Army to work in railroads until the outbreak of the American Civil War. Early in the war, McClellan was appointed to the rank of major general and played an important role in raising a well-trained and organized army, which would become the Army of the Potomac; he served a brief period (November 1861 to March 1862) as general-in-chief of the Union Army.

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