Magruder is shown wearing a dark double-breasted frockcoat, matching dark trousers and white gauntlets. Attached to his coat are brush epaulettes and an aiguilette. Across his chest he wears a baldric and at his waist is a multi-color belt that must be held closed by hook and eye attachments as no belt plate is visible. His foot officer’s sword is attached. At his right side he holds a bi-corn adorned with a stamped brass eagle and ostrich plume.

Contrast and clarity are excellent. Paper and mount are clean.

Reverse is blank but for “MAGRUDER” in pencil at the top and some collector information at bottom.

John Bankhead Magruder was born May 1, 1807 in Port Royal, Virginia. He graduated from West Point in 1830 and was three times brevetted for gallant and meritorious conduct as an artillery officer in the Mexican War. Magruder resigned from the Army on April 20, 1861 and was appointed brigadier general in the Confederate Army on June 17, 1861 and major general the following October. He became well known for delaying General McClellan’s Peninsula Campaign at Yorktown. He was later assigned to the District of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. After the Civil War he fled to Mexico and joined the French Imperial forces there under Maximilian. After the fall of the French government in Mexico Magruder returned to his home in Houston, Texas. He died a poor man on February 18, 1871.  [ad] [ph:L]
