This carte de viste is a bust view of General Johnston in uniform. He is wearing a double-breasted frock with collar insignia. Image appears to be a southern "salt print" and is clear with good contrast. Image shows some minor stains. Mount remains complete and untrimmed. There is no photographer's backmark.

Joseph Eggleston Johnston (February 3, 1807 – March 21, 1891) was an American career army officer, serving with distinction in the United States Army during the Mexican–American War (1846–1848) and the Seminole Wars. After Virginia seceded from the Union, he entered the Confederate States Army as one of its most senior general officers.

Although he served throughout the war, it is likely best remembered that he was wounded on May 31 in the Battle of Seven Pines. The battle was tactically inconclusive, but it stopped McClellan's advance on Richmond and more significantly, the Confederate forces were turned over to the more aggressive Robert E. Lee, who would lead the Army of Northern Virginia for the rest of the war.

After the war, Johnston served as an executive in the railroad and insurance businesses. He was elected as a Democrat in the United States House of Representatives, serving a single term. He was appointed as commissioner of railroads under Grover Cleveland. Johnston died of pneumonia 10 days after attending Sherman's funeral in the pouring rain. He was buried next to his wife in Green Mount Cemetery, Baltimore, Maryland.  [jet] [ph:L]
