Wonderful CDV of Old Abe, the Wisconsin War Eagle

SOLD!!!
A great image of "Old Abe" the 8th Wisconsin War Eagle.  I have attached interesting information about Old Abe below so I will only talk about the photograph.  This photograph was made and sold at the 1876 U.S. Centennial.  This is actually called "The Centennial Photograph"!  In this photograph Old Abe proudly sits on a perch.  On the back of the CDV is "1776   The Centennial Photograph   1876 - "Old Abe," the Live Wisconsin War Eagle.  Agricultural Hall, (International Exposition,) Philadelphia 1876.  Executive Office, Madison, Wis., Feb'y 8, 1876.  I hereby certify that this picture is a correct likeness of "Old Abe." the Live War Eagle, carried for three years by the 8th Wisconsin Reg't in the War of Rebellion.  Sold with the Eagle's history, By J.O. BARNETT.  Agricultural Building, Centennial Grounds, For The "Old Abe Museum of Ornithology."  A copy of the Govenor of Wisconsin's signature is also on the back.
 
Old Abe was captured in 1861 by Chief Sky near the Chippewa River, near the town of Jim Falls, in Chippewa County, Wisconsin. She was subsequently traded to local farmer, Daniel McCann, for a bushel of corn, who in turn sold her to the 8th Wisconsin's Company C for $2.50.

Company C named the eagle after President Abraham Lincoln, and designed a special perch on which they carried the bird into battle. Old Abe participated in the Second Battle of Corinth (in which the 8th Wisconsin lost half of its men) and the Siege of Vicksburg, among other battles. In battle, Old Abe quickly became legendary, screaming and spreading her wings at the enemy. Confederate troops called her the "Yankee Buzzard" and made several attempts to capture her but never succeeded. Several times she lost feathers to bullets and saw her handlers get shot out from under her. When passing by, Generals Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman, and William Rosecrans were known to doff their hats to the eagle.

In 1864, Old Abe returned to Wisconsin with several veterans who did not reenlist. Nevertheless, she remained famous and was invited to, among other events, the 1880 Grand Army of the Republic National Convention, and the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. When not at public events, her caretaker kept her in the Wisconsin State Capitol.

[edit] Postbellum

Old Abe died from smoke inhalation in a fire at the State Capitol in 1881. Her body was mounted and remained a centerpiece of the capitol. The mount, along with most of the capitol building, was destroyed by fire in 1904.

[edit] In memoriam

The insignia of the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division is a depiction of Old Abe. The design is based on one of the Civil War traditions of the state of Wisconsin, which was the territory of the original 101st Division after World War I. The black shield recalls the Iron Brigade, the famous Civil War unit composed of western regiments (although not the 8th Wisconsin).[4]

Old Abe was adopted as the trademark of the J. I. Case agricultural equipment manufacturing company in 1865. The trademark was retired in 1969.

Old Abe is the mascot of Eau Claire Memorial High School, whose athletic teams are known as the "Old Abes", and of Racine Case High School, whose teams are simply the "Eagles".
