Samuel Wylie Crawford, Brig. Gen. & B'vt. Maj. Gen. Vols. and Lieut. Col. 2nd Inf. & B'vt. Maj. Gen. U.S.A. and his StaffArtist(s)Object Creation Datecirca 1862-1865Medium & Supportalbumen print on paperCredit LineGift of Dr. Seymour and Barbara K. AdelsonSubject matter
In this photograph, General Samuel Crawford—second from left—and three unidentified members of his staff assume neutral facial expressions and only slightly varied poses as they stand up against a blank wall. The general is distinguished from the others not only by his lighter-toned trousers—likely pale blue—but also by his greater height. Here the officers pose for the photographer Mathew Brady, whose studios in New York City and Washington, D.C. produced a large number of cartes-de-visite of United States Army and Navy officers during the American Civil War (1861-1865).
