Reverse has a photographer’s imprint of WEBSTER”S PHOTOGRAPH GALLERY…LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY with the rest of the reverse being an advertisement for the company with a list of the images of other officers they offer for sale.

Thomas L.

At Shiloh he commanded a division and won by gallantry on that field promotion to major-general of volunteers, being assigned to command of a division in the Army of the Tennessee.  He com-manded the 2nd corps, forming the left wing of Gen. Buell's Army of the Ohio, served afterwards under Gen. Rosecrans in the battle of Stone's river, and at Chickamauga commanded one of the two corps that were routed.  He was afterwards given com-mand of a division of the 9th corps, Army of the Potomac, and operated with that corps in the campaign of 1864.  He resigned, Dec. 13, 1864 but was afterwards commissioned by President Johnson colonel of the 32nd U.
