Straight on bust view of Taylor in the double-breasted frock coat of a Confederate general.

The image is clear and the contrast is good. Mount is cardboard brown and is original. Paper is good.

Reverse is blank but for some collector information in pencil.

Image is from the collection of the late William A. Turner.

Thomas Hart Taylor was born in Frankfort, Kentucky on July 31, 1825. He attended colleges in both Ohio and Kentucky. During the Mexican War Taylor served as a 1st Lieutenant in the 3rd Kentucky Infantry. After the war he had a varied business career that included driving cattle to California.

On the outbreak of the Civil War Taylor enlisted and was commissioned Lieutenant Colonel and then Colonel of the 1st Kentucky Infantry. After service on the Peninsula, Taylor’s regiment was mustered out in the summer of 1862. Taylor went to East Tennessee and reported to General Kirby Smith. Taylor was given command of a brigade in Stevenson’s Division and served at Cumberland Gap. He was promoted to Brigadier General on November 4, 1862 but was never confirmed. Taylor next went to Vicksburg where he served as General Pemberton’s Provost Marshall. He was captured on the fall of the city. After his exchange Taylor commanded the District of South Mississippi and East Louisiana. Later he served as Provost Marshall on General S. D. Lee’s staff and ended the war as commander of the post at Mobile, Alabama.

After the war he became business man in Mobile but in 1870 returned to Kentucky. Taylor was a US Deputy Marshall for 5 years and Chief of Police in Louisville for eleven years. He died in Louisville on April 12, 1901 and is buried in State Cemetery in Frankfort.  [ad] [ph:L]
