Scott is posed seated and holding a bi-corn in his lap. He wears a dark double-breasted frock coat with brush epaulettes and matching dark trousers. The frock coat has embroidered oak leaf borders on the collar and cuffs. At his waist is his sash and waistbelt decorated with oak leaves. His sword with perched eagle on the pommel is by his side.

Contrast and clarity is excellent as is the paper and mount.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for SILSBEE, CASE & CO… BOSTON. There is also some collector information in pencil.

Winfield Scott’s military career began in 1808. As a Major General he a led a US Army in the capture of Mexico City during the Mexican War. When the Civil War came he was old and unable to take field command of an Army. He devised the famous “Anaconda Plan” which was basically the strategy that won the war. He resigned in November of 1861.  [ad] [ph:L]
