Chest-up view of Cobb in a dark civilian suit. The General is posed slightly turned to the left but is looking right into the camera.

Clarity and contrast are good. Paper is slightly toned but the mount is very good.

Reverse is blank but does have a period ink inscription of “TOM COBB” and a canceled two cent tax stamp.

From the collection of the late William A. Turner.

General Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb was born at “Cherry Hill” in Jefferson County, Georgia on April 10, 1823. After graduation from the University of Georgia he studied law and became well-known for his work in constitutional law and edited twenty volumes of Georgia Supreme Court reports as well as compiling a new state criminal code. During Georgia’s secession convention Cobb was a major influence and later sat in the Confederate Congress but resigned to enter the army. He raised the Cobb Legion and was commissioned colonel. He took part in the actions during the Seven Days, 2nd Manassas and Antietam. Cobb was promoted to brigadier general on November 1, 1862. At Fredericksburg on December 13, 1862 while defending Marye’s Heights, Cobb was struck by a bullet in his thigh and bled to death. He is buried in Oconee Hill Cemetery, Athens, Georgia. [ad] [ph:L]
