Carte-de-visite

Date:
1862-1864

Painted back scene to a Brady image done in New York. Federal Lieutenant in Napoleonic stance with saber at side. On backside is ID, but difficult to read, but likely reads: "Yours Truly L. R. Davis A.D.C. to General Geary 2nd Brigade 2nd Division Twelfth Corps". ADC refers to "Ade de Camp" to General John White Geary. General Geary lists First Lieutenant Llywellyn R. Davis among his Ade de Camps following the Battle of Chancellorsville in a report to Lt. Col. H. C. Rogers of the Twelfth Corps on May 10, 1863. The XII Corps would fight on at Gettysburg and then move west and fought at Wauhatchie and Chattanooga, and then was reformed into the Twentieth Corps just before Sherman's March to the Sea in 1864, so this photo precedes this march.
