Mattox; Second Lieuts., Jeremiah Yeazel, William C. Howard, Abner Tuttle, Frank H. Houghton, Saul R. Strayer. This battery was mustered into service on Aug. 21, 1862, at Dayton, to serve for three years. It entered the field in September, taking a position in the rear of Covington, Ky., near Fort Wallace, to assist in repelling an expected attack from the Confederates under Gen. Kirby Smith. It was sent to Memphis in December and along with the forces of Gen. Burbridge aided in the destruction of the O. & S. railroad, and was present at the five days' fight at Chickasaw bayou and bluffs. It marched with Gen. McClernand's forces against Arkansas Post, and after the capture of that place encamped with the troops of the expedition at Young's point. In March the battery went into camp at Milliken's bend ; in April moved with the 13th corps on the campaign against Vicksburg; was engaged in the battles of Port Gibson, Champion's hill, Black river, and was 47 days in the siege of Vicksburg. In the demonstration against Jackson immediately after the fall of Vicksburg the battery was again actively engaged and performed valuable service in the reduction and capture of that place. It followed Gen. Burbridge on the Teche expedition in the fall of 1863, and was hotly engaged in the fight at Grand Coteau, La., in which more than half the brigade was killed, wounded and captured. The battery alone lost 25 men, 21 horses, 1 gun and 1 caisson. It remained at New Orleans until ordered to join the 16th corps in the spring of 1865 in the expedition against the city of Mobile. It was mustered out on Aug. 16, 1865, at Camp Chase, Ohio. The battery entered the service with 156 men, and at its muster-out its rolls showed 158, there having been from time to time 284 names added to its rolls. It lost 40 or more by death.

Colonel Harry Gilmor - 12 Viginia Cavalry, 1 & 2 Maryland Cavalry, Partisan Cavalry - CDV

SOLD!!!
A great full standing photograph of Colonel Harry Gilmor.  He is armed andis wearing his full uniform.  Written underneath his photograph in period ink is "Harry Gilmor".  The backmark is "E.& H.T, Anthony, 501 Broadway, New York from Photographic Negative in BRADY'S National Portrait Gallery".
 
Harry Gilmor was born January 24, 1838 at "Glen Ellen", the family estate in Baltimore County, Maryland. After homesteading in Wisconsin and Nebraska, he returned to Maryland in time to join the newly formed Baltimore County Horse Guards as a corporal.
After the efforts of the citizens of Baltimore to prevent the movement of Federal troops through the city, the Horse Guards received orders to burn several bridges north of the city to prevent further troop movements toward Washington City.
Following the occupation of Baltimore by Federal troops under Brigadier General Benjamin "Beast" Butler, Gilmor was one of many to be arrested and imprisoned in Fort McHenry. After his release, he traveled South and joined the command of Colonel Turner Ashby on August 31, 1861.
In March 1862, he was commissioned Captain of Company F, Twelfth Virginia Cavalry. Captain Gilmor served throughout the Valley Campaign. At times, he was on special assignment to General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson.
He was arrested during the Sharpsburg Campaign, while in the Baltimore area visiting family. He spent five months in prison.
He participated in the Battle of Brandy Station and was sighted in the after action reports of General Fitzhugh Lee and General J.E.B. Stuart for his conduct in this engagement.
On May 27, 1863, he was promoted to the rank of Major and asked to raise an independent battalion of cavalry. Before he could complete this assignment, the Gettysburg campaign interceded. During the battle, Major Gilmor was assigned command of the First and Second Maryland Cavalry, under General George Steuart's infantry brigade. Major Gilmor was the Provost Marshal of the town of Gettysburg while it was occupied.

Gilmor had organized six companies of partisan rangers by September of 1863. His command's area of operation was the Shenandoah Valley and parts of "West" Virginia. General J.E.B. Stuart ordered Gilmor to attack the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in February of 1864.

After the defeat of Major General Lew Wallace at Monocacy on July 9, 1864, Gilmor's command acted as the spearhead for the raid around Baltimore in 1864 with General Bradley T. Johnson's infantry command.

While assigned to scout duty under General Jubal Early, Colonel Gilmor single-handedly captured a company of Federal infantry. Gilmor and Holmes Conrad, a man under his command, later captured more than 50 troopers from the First New Jersey Cavalry.

Colonel Gilmor was ordered by General Early to take his command to Hardy County, West Virginia. He was to combine with other partisans in the area and attack the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Colonel Gilmor was finally captured in Hardy County, on February 4, 1865. He remained a prisoner at Fort Warren until July 24, 1865.

For several years after the war, Harry Gilmor lived in New Orleans, where he married Miss Mentoria Strong. Upon his return to Maryland, he was elected colonel of cavalry in the Maryland National Guard. He also served as Baltimore City Police Commissioner from 1874 to 1879. He was a member of the Society of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States in Maryland and it's Vice-President in 1882.

Harry Gilmor died in Baltimore on March 4, 1883 at the age of forty-five. He was interred on "Confederate Hill" in Loudon Park Cemetery. To this day, people gather at his graveside on the anniversary of his birth to honor his life long service to his country.

General Roger Hanson, Orphan Brigade Commander, CDV

SOLD!!
A great Confederate general CDV of General Roger Hanson. A Kentucky general who commanded the Kentucky brigade of John C. Breckinridge's division, which he lead at the battle of Stone's River. Hanson was mortally wounded on January 2, 1863, and died two days later in a house near the battlefield. He is buried in Lexington, KY. A wonderful full standing photograph.  The backmark is E. & H.T. Anthony, 501 Broadway, New York.
 
Brigadier-General Roger W. Hanson was one of those gallant Kentuckians who, believing that the cause of the South was the cause of constitutional liberty, and fearing that the centralizing tendencies of the republican party would lead to the complete overthrow of the sovereignty of the States, left home and friends and, becoming an exile from his native State, threw his whole heart and soul into the struggle of the South for separate independence. His natural ability as a leader of men brought him to the front and he became colonel of the Second Kentucky infantry, commissioned September 3, 1861. His regiment was assigned to the Confederate army in central Kentucky, first under command of General Buckner. In the battle of Fort Donelson, amid a pitiless tempest of rain, snow and sleet and the more dreadful storm of shot and shell, Hanson and his men were distinguished for bravery and steady fighting, and are frequently mentioned in the official reports. It was late in the year when Colonel Hanson was exchanged. On the 13th of December, 1862, he was commissioned brigadier-general in the provisional army of the Confederate States. On the 3ist of the same month came the tremendous battle of Murfreesboro, in which Hanson commanded the Kentucky brigade of Breckinridge's division. On the ad of January Bragg noticed that Beatty's Federal brigade east of Stone's river enfiladed Polk's line in its new position. Bragg ordered Breckinridge to take his division and dislodge these troops. Lieut.-Col. S. C. Kniffin, of the staff of the Union General Crittenden, says: "In the assault that followed a brief cannonade, Hanson's left was thrown forward close to the river bank, with orders to fire once, then charge with the bayonet. On the right of Beatty was Col. S. W. Price's brigade, and the charge made by Hanson's Sixth Kentucky was met by Price's Eighth Kentucky regiment, followed by Hanson and Pillow in successive strokes from right to left of Beatty's lines. * * * Beatty ordered retreat, and assailants and assailed moved in a mass toward the river. * * * Crittenden, turning to his chief of artillery, said, 'Mendenhall, you must cover my men with your guns.' Never was there a more effective response to such a request. * * * In all, 58 pieces of artillery played upon the enemy. Not less than 100 shots per minute were fired. As the men swarmed down the slope they were mowed down by the score. Confederates were pinioned to the earth by falling branches. For a few minutes the brave fellows held their ground, hoping to advance, but the bank bristled with bayonets. Hanson was mortally wounded and his brigade lost 400 men." General Breckinridge in his official report says: "I cannot enumerate all the brave officers who fell, nor the living who nobly did their duty; yet I may be permitted to lament, in common with the army, the premature death of General Hanson, who received a mortal wound at the moment the enemy began to give way. Endeared to his friends by his private virtues and to his command by the vigilance with which he guarded its interest and honor, he was, by the universal testimony of his military associates, one of the finest officers that adorned the service of the Confederate States."

General John Morgan CDV - KIA

SOLD!!!
A very clean CDV of General John Morgan of Kentucky.  While Morgan was born in Huntsville, Alabama he attended college in Lexington, Kentucky and forever more became a Kentuckian.  Morgan fought at Buena Vista in the Mexican War.  When the Civil War started, Morgan led his Lexington Rifles to Bowling Green and joined General Buckner.  From then until his death three years later his exploits made him one of the legendary figures of the COnfederacy, ranking then and to this day with Jeb Stuart in the hearts of Kentuckians as a symbol of the "Lost Cause".  He was promoted COlonel of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry on April 4, 1862 and promoted to brigadier general on December 11, 1862.  His series of raids into Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio earned him a vote of thanks from the Confederate Congress and the undying animosity of a large segment of the frightened Norrth.  Captured on his Ohio raid, he escaped  and returned South to command the Department of Southwest Virginia.  He was killed September 5, 1864 by a detachment of Union cavalry in Greeneville, Tennessee.  The image is very clean with an "E. & H.T. Anthony, 501 Broadway, New York" backmark.

SOLD!!!
An interesting image of General Gideon Pillow of the Confederate State of America.  This is a waist up view of General Pillow.  Stamped on the back is "L.C. Handy, Photographer, 194 Maryland Ave. S.W., Washington, D.C.".  General Pillow was a Major General in the Mexican war and was wounded twice in the Mexico City campaign.  He was named senior major general of Tennessee's provisional army upon succesion of the state, and was appointed brigadier general in the Provisional Army of the Confederacy on July 9, 1861. Pillow was at the battle of Belmont, MO. and was second in command to General John B. Floyd at Fort Donelson the following February.  During Grant's seige of Fort Donelson, Floyd passed the command to Pillow, who in turn passed it to General Simon Buckner.  Floyd and Pillow made their escape before the surrender of the work.  Subsequently relieved from duty, he held no important command thereafter.
