This carte de viste is an oval waist-up view of General Huger in uniform. He is wearing a double-breasted frock with collar insignia. Image is very clear with good contrast. Wonderful quality. Oval image is pasted onto a plain mount. There is no photographer's backmark.

Benjamin Huger (November 22, 1805 – December 7, 1877) was a regular officer in the United States Army, who served with distinction as chief of ordnance in the Mexican–American War and in the Civil War, as a Confederate general. He notably surrendered Roanoke Island and then the rest of the Norfolk, Virginia shipyards, attracting criticism for allowing valuable equipment to be captured. At Seven Pines, he was blamed by General James Longstreet for impeding the Confederate attack, and was transferred to an administrative post after a lackluster performance in the Seven Days Battles.

After the war, Huger became a farmer in North Carolina and then in Fauquier County, Virginia, finally returning in poor health to his home in Charleston, South Carolina. He died in Charleston in December 1877 and was buried at Green Mount Cemetery located in Baltimore, Maryland.  [jet] [ph:L]
