At Sharpsburg he succeeded to command of the 1st Division of the 2nd Corps after the mortal wounding of General Isreal B. Richardson. He fought at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville under General Darius N. Couch and covered the Army of the Potomac as it retreated across the Rappahannock. At Gettysburg he anchored the line at Cemetary Ridge. His corp repulsed Picket's men on the third day of the battle. At that time he received a wound he would never fully recovered. He was out of action until the end of 1863. He resumed command of the 2nd Corp and led his men at the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, Deep Bottom, Ream's Station, and the Boydton Plank Road. His wound reopened in November 1864 and he attempted to recruit a Veterans Reserve Corps. For the rest of his life he would stay in the military. He ran for President of the United States but did not win. He will always be known for his stand at Gettysburg! The CDV has a blue 2 cent Washington stamp on the back with a "F. Gutekunst. 704 & 706 Arch St. - Philadelphia" backmark. There are two places on the back of the CDV that make it look like the image was once glued in an albumn. Great image of a great general!
