Nice, bright, clean CDV of General Daniel Tyler seated in a chair cradling a Model 1860 Field and Staff officers word in his lap. He wears a dark double-breasted frock coat with black felt collar and cuffs. Visible on one shoulder is a brigadier general’s shoulder strap.

Contrast and clarity are excellent. Mount and paper are very nice.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for J. GURNEY & SON… BROADWAY, N.Y. Top has period pencil ID of “GEN. TYLER.”

Civilwardata.com gives a succinct biography as follows:

“Daniel Tyler was born at Brooklyn, Conn., Feb. 22, 1799.  Graduating from West Point in 1819, he served as a lieutenant of artillery, was adjutant of the school of practice at Fortress Monroe, and while commanding the arsenal at Pikesville, Md., translated "Maneuvers of Artillery" from the French.

In 1828 he was sent abroad to observe the French improvements in artillery, which he did at

Metz and elsewhere, making an extensive collection of lithographs and drawings on the subject.  In 1830 he was sent to the Springfield armory to report upon the manufacture of small arms, and became a member of the board that met to reorganize the national armories.

In 1832 he was superintendent of the inspectors of arms furnished by contractors.  Resigning in 1834, he became president of an iron and coal company, introduced improvements in furnaces and rolling-mills, and was one of the first Americans to produce pig-iron.  He was successively president of the Norwich & Worcester railroad, of the Morris canal company, and of the Macon & Western railroad in Georgia until 1848. For the next twelve years he was engaged in constructing several railroads in Pennsylvania.

He became colonel of the 1st Conn. infantry in April, 1861, brigadier-general of volunteers in March, 1862 and served in the Army of the Mississippi at the siege of Corinth, was one of the commission, to investigate Buell's Kentucky campaign, and afterward was in command at Harper's Ferry, in Baltimore and in Delaware.  He withdrew from the army in April, 1864, traveled for some years, and lived for a time at Red Bank, N. J.  Resuming active business pursuits at an advanced age, he founded Anniston, Ala., in 1872, built iron-mills, was interested in cotton, was president of the Mobile & Montgomery railroad, and invested largely in Texas lands.”  Gen. Tyler died in New York Nov. 30, 1882 and is buried in Hillside Cemetery in Anniston, Alabama. [ad][ph:L]
