Item No. 6602224

An excellent rare CDV of Union General Régis de Trobriand, a French-born lawyer and novelist who emigrated to the United States on a dare, where he would have a long career in the U.S. Army. De Trobriand began the Civil War as Colonel of the 55th New York, serving with that regiment on the Peninsula and Fredericksburg. Shortly thereafter the regiment was merged with the 38th New York, with de Trobriand in command. The General is best known, perhaps, for his action in the Wheatfield at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863, where his 3rd Corps brigade held against heavy attacks by Hood’s Division. De Trobriand would have a lengthy post-war career in the Army, serving at Fort Stevenson in the Dakota Territory and at New Orleans.

The carte has the familiar Mathew Brady / E. & H. T. Anthony backmark on the reverse. It is in excellent condition save for about 1/8” severed from the bottom edge of the mount. Overall measures about 2 1/2” x 3 7/8”.
