0.00

Item No. 9827697

A nice CDV of Union Navy Admiral Andrew Foote, posed in Mathew Brady’s studio. This image offers quite a bit of detail in Foote’s cap, sword, belt, and shoulder straps. Foote is best known for having commanded the brown water fleets of the Western Theater in 1862, with notable victories at Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, and Island No. 10. While on his way to take command of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron in 1863, Foote suddenly passed away.

The CDV measures about 2 1/2” x 4” and is in excellent condition. On the reverse is the backmark of E. & H.T. Anthony, distributors of the Mathew Brady image.
