Bust view of General Benjamin Grierson. Overcoming his fear of horses Grierson became a cavalry commander during the American Civil War. In the spring of 1863, he led Grierson's Raid, a major diversionary thrust deep into the Confederacy, ordered by Grant as part of his Vicksburg Campaign. Later Grierson led an expedition of two brigades of the Cavalry Division against the Mobile and Ohio Railroad. On Christmas Day he surprised and captured Forrest's dismounted camp at Verona, Mississippi, and on December 28 engaged a train carrying an ad hoc Confederate force of approximately 1,200 men at Egypt Station, Mississippi. Grierson went on after the war taking command of the 10th US Cavalry part of what many know as the Buffalo Soldiers. He served proudly with much confidence in his troops even though many of his peers mocked him for it. Image is clear and has good detail Photographers backmark reads “Alexander Gardner Washington, D.C.” a blue tax stamp is also present. [am] [ph:L]
