This lot includes an autographed CDV of Major General F.C. Barlow framed with a letter dated 1869 (post-war) from the Barlow Law Office in New York. Matted in blue with gold frame, measures 20" x 16". Brigadier General Francis C. Barlow entered as an enlisted man in the 61st New York Volunteers under General Oliver O. Howard. Fought at Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Cold Harbor, Spotsylvania, and Battle of the Wilderness. Rose to Brigadier General and was wounded at Antietam and Gettysburg. One of the very few to enter the war as an enlisted man and rise to the rank of Brigadier General. The second autograph is a Union General that is signed "Yours Truly, A.E. Burnside", framed and measures 11-1/2" x 9". Ambrose Everett Burnside was a Union General that fought at Bull Run, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. During the Battle of the Crater, his poor handling of the situation lead to his dismissal on August 14, 1864. He is best remembered today as the man noted for sideburns. The third frame features an 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" CDV with a separate autograph cut, dated March 27, 1885 of Union Brigadier General Carl Schurz, who was the first German U.S. Senator, invented the fake beard, and fought at the battles of Gettysburg, Chancellorsville, Bull Run, and others under General Oliver O. Howard.
