Item No. SQ4576304

Offered here is an excellent twice-signed Civil War CDV. The image features Union General Clinton B. Fisk, whose signature is found both below his portrait on the front, and on the reverse. The reverse features the back mark of Gutekunst, Philadelphia. An abolitionist, Fisk was appointed colonel of the 33rd Missouri Volunteer Infantry of the Union Army on September 5, 1862. He organized a brigade and was commissioned brigadier general November 24, 1862. He served most of the Civil War in Missouri and Arkansas, commanding first the District of Southeast Missouri and later the Department of North Missouri. The primary duty of these commands was opposing raids into Missouri by Confederate States of America cavalry and guerrillas.

Fisk was a senior officer during Reconstruction in the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands. He endowed Fisk University with $30,000. In addition, he helped establish the first free public schools in the South for white and African-American children.

The CDV measures about 2 1/2" x 4" and is in excellent condition as shown.
