Standing view of Major General Franz Sigel. Sigel was promoted to major general on 21 March 1862. He served as a division commander in the Shenandoah Valley and fought unsuccessfully against Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, who outwitted and defeated the larger Union force in a number of small engagements. He commanded the I Corps in Maj. Gen. John Pope's Army of Virginia at the Second Battle of Bull Run, another Union defeat, where he was wounded in the hand. Many historians cite Sigel’s lack of military prowess and skill. On multiple occasions, he made terrible military decisions, resulting in the deaths of his soldiers and also Nathaniel Lyon in 1861 at the Battle of Wilson's Creek. Image is clear and has good detail Photographers backmark reads “E.A.”. [am] [ph:L]
