General John A. McClernand was a Black Hawk war private who became a Civil War General by appointment by Abraham Lincoln.† He was promoted to a Major General position on March 21, 1862.† He played a subversive role in the army, seeking to supplant George McClellan in the East and criticizing U.S. Grant's maneuvers in the West.† After conducting an expedition which reduced the Post of Arkansas in January, 1863, he commanded the XIII Corps in the operations against Vicksburg.† After a disastrous assault on the Confederate works, McClernand furnished the press with a congratulatory order, extolling his men as the heros of the campaign.† This was the final straw with Grant and McClernand was sent home to the relief of the other Union commanders.† He reappeared as commander of the XIII Corps the following year until his resignation on November, 1864.† The image is a waist up photograph of McClernand as a major†general.† The backmark is E.& H.T. Anthony.
