(1792-1881) Born in Ireland, his family came to the United States in 1799. He served in the 2nd Pennsylvania Militia during the War of 1812, rising from the rank of captain to colonel. He then joined the U.S. Army and served in the Quartermaster Department. At the outbreak of the Mexican War, he was commissioned major general of volunteers. He commanded the 2nd Division, Army of Occupation, during the Tampico Expedition, saw action during the Siege of Vera Cruz, and was wounded at the Battle of Cerro Gordo. He led the pursuit of the Mexican Army and was the first to enter Jalapa. After the war he acquired 30 cotton mills and became quite wealthy. He was also very influential in Philadelphia politics. When the Civil War began, he was commissioned major general of volunteers and appointed commander of the Department of Pennsylvania, and the Army of the Shenandoah. In 1861, Patterson, operating under vague orders from General in Chief, Winfield Scott to capture Harpers Ferry, failed to act immediately, and was outmaneuvered at the Battle of Hoke's Run. This allowed the Confederate army at Winchester, commanded by General Joseph E. Johnston, to march unmolested to 1st Manassas, arriving in time to reinforce General Beauregard and turn the tide of the battle into a Confederate victory. Patterson was widely criticized for his failure to contain the Rebel forces, and he saw no further service during the war. His son was Union General Francis E. Patterson, and his son in law was Union General J.J. Abercrombie. Wet plate, albumen carte de visite photograph, mounted to 2 5/16 x 3 7/8 card. Bust view in uniform with epaulettes. Backmark: E. Anthony, New York. Card is very slightly trimmed. Light age toning. Very fine. Uncommon.
Card signature as Past Grand Commander of the Grand Commandery of Mississippi with place and date (1834-1917) Born in Charleston, S.C., he graduated from West Point in 1857, and served under Colonel Albert Sidney Johnston, during the Utah expedition, 1857-58, and at Fort Walla Walla, Washington Territory, 1859-60. When Abraham Lincoln was elected president in 1860, he resigned his U.S. Army commission and returned home to Charleston. In March 1861, he was commissioned captain in the Provisional Confederate Army, and aide-de-camp to General P.G.T. Beauregard. He was one of those who received the formal surrender of Major Robert Anderson at Fort Sumter, and raised the first Confederate flag, and posted the first guards at Fort Sumter. He was then sent to the Confederate capital, at Montgomery, Ala., to present to the Confederate Congress, the first Confederate flag that had been struck by enemy fire during the battle for Fort Sumter. Still serving on General Beauregard's staff at the start of the battle of Shiloh, he was given command of a brigade. He also commanded this brigade in the Vicksburg campaign where he helped to stop the attacks of General William T. Sherman, and Admiral David D. Porter. He was promoted to brigadier general to rank from July 23, 1863. During Sherman's March to the Sea, his cavalry force harassed the flanks of the Union army. When within a few miles of Savannah, he left his horses on the South Carolina side of the river, and after swimming it, entered Savannah with his men as infantry, covering the rear of General Hardee's army during their evacuation of the city. He escorted the fleeing Confederate President Jefferson Davis from Charlotte into Georgia where his command was disbanded. After the war Ferguson settled in Greenville, Mississippi, where he studied law, and was admitted to the bar. He served as president of the board of the Mississippi levee commissioners for several years, and in 1885 was appointed by President Chester Arthur to the Mississippi River Commission. Card Signature With Place and Date : 3 1/4 x 2, in ink, Samuel Wragg Ferguson, P.[ast] G.[rand] C.[ommander], Grand Commandery of Mississippi, Biloxi, May 11, 1915. Very fine.
The first martyr of the Civil War! (1837-1861) He was famous before the Civil War for organizing the Chicago Zouaves and staging spectacular drill exhibitions throughout the country. In August 1860, he performed on the lawn of the White House. He later accompanied President elect Abraham Lincoln to Washington for the inauguration, having become very close to the Lincoln family. He raised the Fire Zouaves, the 11th New York Vols., and led them into Washington in May 1861. He was shot down and killed by James T. Jackson, the proprietor of the Marshall House Hotel in Alexandria, Va., on May 24, 1861, after having removed a Confederate flag from the roof of that building. It was claimed to have been seen from the White House and Ellsworth found it to be an insult to President Lincoln. Jackson was immediately killed by Private Francis E. Brownell. A correspondent of the New York Tribune was on the scene, and the episode caused an immediate sensation which contributed greatly to the war sentiment in the North. Wet plate, albumen carte de visite photograph, mounted to 2 3/8 x 4 card. Full standing view in uniform posed with his arms folded across his chest with cannon at left foreground.

Stonewall Jackson; The Man, The Soldier, The Legend
By James I. Robertson, Jr. MacMillan USA, Simon Stonewall Jackson. He ranks today as among the half dozen greatest soldiers that America has produced. Military academies in both hemispheres still teach his tactics. Revered by his men, respected by his foes, Jackson became seemingly invincible. When he learned of the general's fatal wound, General Robert E. Lee sent his affectionate regards, saying, He has lost his left arm but I my right arm. Jackson's early death in 1863 was the greatest personal loss suffered by the Confederacy and one that permanently crippled the wartime South. Always lost in the aura surrounding this field commander has been the individual himself. As renowned Civil War scholar James Robertson notes in the preface to Stonewall Jackson, this study is not a biography of a great general; it is the life of an extraordinary man who became a great general....The intent here is to see life as Jackson saw it, to hear his words, to read his thoughts, to walk beside him, and know little more than he knew at a given time and place. This eagerly awaited biography is based on years of research into little known manuscripts, unpublished letters, newspapers, and other primary sources. It offers for the first time a complete portrait, not only of Jackson the brilliant military strategist and beloved general, but also of Jackson, the man of orphaned background, unyielding determination to conquer adversity, and deep religious convictions. Robertson's masterwork, Stonewall Jackson, will be viewed as the definitive biography of the general to be published in this century. Myths are exploded, anecdotes crumbled. What remains as fact is highly distilled....gives us far and away the sharpest picture we have ever had of this enigmatic figure. Stephen W. Sears A master has given us his best; to our enormous profit....A long-awaited major event in Civil War literature....Robertosn puts to rest many of the long held legends and myths that have grown up around the human puzzle that was Stonewall Jackson. John C. Waugh Will stand alone for the next forty years and perhaps into eternity....A masterpiece for the ages. Dennis E. Frye Truly a stunning achievement. Surely there will be more biographies of this compelling figure, but all lives of Jackson, whether past or future, must henceforth be judged inevitably by measuring them against this one. William C. Davis

(1825-64) Saw action in the Mexican War. He organzied the Lexington Rifles in 1857, and when the Civil War broke out, he led his command to join the Confederacy. From then until his death his exploits made him one of the legendary figures of the Confederacy. He was promoted to colonel of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry on April 4, 1862, and brigadier general on December 11th. His series of raids into Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio earned him a vote of thanks from the Confederate Congress and the undying hatred of a large segment of the frightened Northern population. On his most famous raid north of the Ohio in 1863, he was captured near New Lisbon and imprisoned in the Ohio State Penitentiary with several of his officers. But no prison could hold the notorious Confederate raider as he soon escaped! On the night of September 3, 1864, while enroute to attack Union forces near Knoxville, he camped near Greenville, Tenn. Early the next morning he was surprised by a detachment of Union cavalry and was killed in the garden of the house where he had been sleeping.

The War Experiences of the Youngest Member of Jackson's Staff By Henry Kyd Douglas. The University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, N.C., 1968. Hardcover with dust jacket, 401 pages, index, illustrations. New condition. Stonewall Jackson depended on him; General Lee complimented him; Union soldiers admired him; and young women in Maryland, Virginia, and even Pennsylvania adored him, the young, dashing, handsome Henry Kyd Douglas. He rode with Stonewall; he fought by the model of the incomparable Ashby; he lived, joked, and courted with Jeb Stuart. From his meeting with John Brown, alias Isaac Smith, shortly before the Brown Raid, through the long, bitter years of the Civil War, he clung to the Southern cause, fought its battles, and endured its defeats. During and shortly after the war he set down his experiences of great men and great days. In a resonant prose almost unique among soldiers and rare among writers, he wrote as simply and intimately of history as though it were a jovial anecdote, spun out after dinner for the entertainment of his friends. He tells of the persimmon tree that the General climbed but could not descend, the irate farmer who upbraided Jackson for crossing his field, the lemon that Stonewall sucked all during the battle at Cold Harbor. Here is one of the finest and most remarkable stories to come out of any war, written wholly firsthand from notes and diaries made on the battlefield. Henry Kyd Douglas was born in 1840 in Shepherdstown, West Virginia (then Virginia). He graduated from Franklin and Marshall College, and, in 1860, was admitted to the bar. He was the youngest member of Stonewall Jackson's staff, was wounded six times, and on more than one occasion was cited for bravery. At the close of the war he was in command of the Light Brigade. After the war Douglas practiced law in Hagerstown and became a prominent figure in legal, political, and military circles of Maryland. He died in 1903. A must for any War Between The States library!
