        Black bellied Yankees" at The Battle of Fort Blakely

      1865 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Julian E. Bryant. "Up the Alabama," April 25, 1865. 4 pp. A Union colonel, in command of the 48th Regiment of U.S. Colored Troops, writes to his friend, Col. Julian E. Bryant, of the 46th Regiment of U.S.C.T., recounting his regiment's part in the Battle of Fort Blakely. "We have had hard marching & hard fighting. A week in trenches & a successful charge. The 'Black bellied Yankee' made their mark . everyone gives us credit for doing well & I think we did excellently well. . My loss was not very heavy, not over thirty all told. The other Regts in my Brigade suffered much more severely on the last charge, I being held in reserve & not being under fire but a few moments, they did gallantly." Partial Transcript"I recd your letter as this craft was sailing from Mobile. I was glad to hear that you still survive & that the 'Bloody Old 1st Arkansas' was running still . I saw by the New Orleans papers that there is an occasional row with the police & knew that your Regt had not forgotten entirely its early & excellent training. We have had hard marching & hard fighting. A week in trenches & a successful charge. The 'Black bellied Yankees' made their mark . everyone gives us credit for doing well & I think we did excellently well. My loss was not very heavy, not over thirty all told. The other Regts in my Brigade suffered much more severely on the last charge, I being held in reserve & not being under fire but a few moments, they did gallantly. We are part of an expedition going into the upper country. We are now about 200 miles up the Alabama . I got 125 recruits in Blakely more than the whole division beside. This puts my aggregate something over 800 . I intend to have a thousand men before we get back. I don't suppose there is any chance of you getting along, for [Gen. John P.] Hawkins tried hard enough before he left New Orleans, but Canby has no respect for persons. Gen Hawkins can get no favors from him any more than anyone else & I don't think he would favor any body if he knew it . I came near being drowned the other night, falling over board from a small boat as I was coming from Gen. Steeles boat. I went under a steam boat & came out on the other side & had to do some rapid swimming to catch the boat. I saw two men drowned about an hour ago & no one could help them. There have been 6 men drowned that I know of since we started. The current is very swift & there is little chance for a man with his clothes on. I have no doubt you find your self led off by the fascinations of the fair Cyprians now & then. Virtuous as I am I found my self no match for their seductive arts when I was in the Crescent City . May you live a thousand years."Historical BackgroundThe Siege and Battle of Fort Blakely (April 2-9, 1865) was a significant aspect of the campaign, led by General E.R.S. Canby, to capture Mobile, Alabama. Crandal commanded the 48th U.S. Colored Troops in General Hawkins's Division, as part of Frederick Steele's column that moved west in support of Canby in the late winter of 1865.Crandal's official report (April 12, 1865) states: ".the Forty-eighth Regiment U.S. Colored Infantry arrived in front of Blakely on April 1. Went into camp and remained until Sunday morning, when skirmishing commenced in front. The regiment was ordered into line of battle, forming the left of the brigade, with one company of skirmishers in front covering the battalion. We moved forward, the skirmishers driving the enemy within about 500 yards of their works. The regiment lost fifteen men killed and wounded by the explosion of shell in the ranks. The regiment being in an exposed position was moved to the right into a ravine . Sunday night this regiment commenced work on the first parallel . Tuesday afternoon the regiment moved back a short distance into another ravine as a reserve, and remained there until Saturday, the 8th, with very heavy details working o.

        [LARGE FORMAT ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH OF GEN. ROBERT E. LEE AND STAFF JUST AFTER CONFEDERATE SURRENDER AT APPOMATTOX]

      Washington, D. C.: Brady & Co., 1865.. Albumen photograph, image area 8 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches, mounted to 13 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Brady & Co. imprint under the photograph, caption title, "GEN. R. E. LEE AND STAFF" and with 1865 copyright notice. Small chip to lower right corner of the photo, two tiny areas of rubbing to left edge, short, light scratch to image area underneath the armrest of the chair. Dust-soiling and wear to mount, with remnants of mat surrounding the photo. Minor spotting to mount. A handsome example in very good condition. A moving and poignant image of the Lost Cause. In this famous image, Lee is shown seated, with his son, General George Washington Custis Lee, on the right and Colonel Walter Taylor of his staff on the left. The photograph was taken by legendary American photographer Mathew Brady at Lee's Richmond home on Franklin Street in mid-April, 1865, about a week after Appomattox. Mathew Brady made six negatives on the occasion, all rarely encountered in the market. Brady would later recount that there was little conversation, though Lee changed his position according to directions. Lee stares straight into the camera here, his eyes hard, jaw set. He and his staff all wear their Confederate field uniforms. Brady had known Robert E. Lee since the Mexican American War, and been present from the first battle of the Civil War at Bull Run until this "final" portrait, which completed his photographic coverage of the war. This is certainly one of his most celebrated images. "The photographer Mathew Brady had been in Richmond for several days, making nearly 60 photographs of the ruined city. He got wind of Lee's return and asked an old acquaintance, Confederate colonel Robert Ould, to appeal to the general to have his photograph taken. Ould, who had been a district attorney in Washington before the war and become the chief Confederate officer in charge of prisoner exchange, had been given something like diplomatic immunity by Grant. Brady said in a newspaper interview late in life that both Ould and Mrs. Lee had helped him persuade the general to submit to the camera, although as Brady put it, 'It was supposed that after his defeat it would be preposterous to ask him to sit.' But, Brady continued, 'I thought that to be the time for the historical picture.' Apparently Lee, or perhaps Mrs. Lee, agreed, because it was arranged that Brady could come to the house and make his pictures. The next day, Easter Sunday, Brady took six photographs in all: four of Lee alone and two of him with his aide, Colonel Walter Taylor, and his oldest son, Major General Custis Lee, who had been captured only three days before the surrender. Brady posed the officers beneath the overhang of the back porch, on the basement level, because the light was best there" (Robert Wilson, "Dignity in Defeat: Mathew Brady's Photos of Robert E. Lee"). A wonderful image in American history. MEREDITH, p.66

        Ansicht eines Schweizer Alpentals bei Chamonix. mit einem Dorf und Bergen im Hintergrund, im Vordergrund rastende Wanderer. Orig.-Photo.

      Um 1865.. Albuminabzug. 15,7 x 21,2 cm. Auf Karton mit Tonplatte montiert. Im Unterrand Eindruck: "W. England photg. Views of Switzerland and Savoy. Dedicated by permission to the Alpine Club", sowie Verlegeradresse "F. Mack...Vevey". Im Hintergrund die Bergpartie etwas bleich. Dies aber wohl Nebel oder Dunst und keine Ausbleichung des Abzugs - der Rest der Aufnahme bis zur Mitte mit der Talebene setzt sich gestochen scharf vom beginnenden Hintergrund der ansteigenden Berge ab. Sehr guter Abzug.. Wohl aus einer in der Schweiz erschienenen Serie (oder Mappe). Gernsheim, Incunabula of British Photographic Literature, verzeichnet nur eine Mappe mit Aufnahmen Englands in kleinerem Format "Panoramic Views of Switzerland, Savoy, and Italy" von 1865, die aber in London erschien (siehe Gernshein 272). England begann bereits in sehr jungen Jahren vor 1842 seine Photographenlaufbahn als Assistent eines Daguerreotypisten in London und bald darauf wurde er zu einem der Pioniere der Landschaftsphotographie. 1854 trat er der London Stereoscopic Co. bei und war bald bis 1862 deren Chefphotograph. Später verließ er die Stereoscopic Company und gründete sein eigenes Atelier für Photographien und Drucke. Er reiste und photographierte in Frankreich, Irland, der Schweiz und den USA. Als Spezialist für Alpenansichten bekannt, stand er unter dem Patronat des "British Alpine Club", der einige seiner Ansichten, wie auch vorliegende, publizierte. Ab 1886 war er Präsident der London Photographic Society. Großformatige Einzelaufnahmen Englands sind bedeutend seltener als seine relativ häufigen Stereokarten. Zur Biographie siehe auch Matthew Butson, Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, Vol I, S. 488/89.

        Framed Oversize Color Lithograph of President Lincoln and his Family

      n.p., [1865+] Color Lithograph of President Lincoln and his family, 24.5? x 17.25?. Circa 1865+. Repaired diagonal tear from upper left center edge to right edge, passing at Lincoln?s necktie not materially affecting the lithograph?s attractiveness. In apparent very good condition. Attractively matted and displayed in an ornate 33.75? x 26.5? frame. The artist and the publisher are unknown. Lincoln\'s assassination inspired the publication of many prints of Lincoln, including portraits, scenes of the assassination, and images of earlier, happier times of Lincoln\'s life. A surprisingly large number of the prints showed Lincoln and his family in a domestic setting, giving the American public a glimpse of the private life of the martyred President, albeit one based more on the imagination of the artist than on reality. Prints were variously titled ?Lincoln at Home,? ?President Lincoln and Family Circle,? ?The Lincoln Family,? ?Lincoln and His Family,? etc. In this rarely encountered print, the papers on the table a

        12 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Luzern, 1865-1877.. Zus. 36 S., 8° bis 4°.. "Eugene Lachat trat mit 17 Jahren in den Orden der Missionare vom Kostbaren Blut ein und wurde am 24. September 1842 zum Priester geweiht. Nachdem er am 26. Februar 1863 zum Bischof von Basel gewählt worden war, bestätigte Papst Pius IX. die Wahl am 26. Oktober desselben Jahres. Die Bischofsweihe spendete ihm am 30. November 1863 der damalige Bischof von Strassburg, Andreas Räss, in der Kathedrale Solothurn. Lachat wurde im Zuge des Kulturkampfes am 29. Januar 1873 von den Diözesanständen Aargau, Solothurn, Bern, Basel-Landschaft und Thurgau von seinem Amt abgesetzt, während ihn Luzern und Zug weiterhin als rechtmässigen Bischof betrachteten" (Wikipedia). 1863 erschien in Paris eine über 300 Seiten umfassende Monographie über Lachat von Edouard Hornstein ("Biographie de Monseigneur Lachat eveque de Bale"). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt.

        8 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Wien, Kalocsa u. Rom, 1865-1877.. Zus. 14 S., 12° bis Gr.-8°.. "Haynald studierte in Gran, Tyrnau und Wien, wo er 1841 in Theologie promovierte. Von 1842 bis 1846 war er Professor der Theologie in Gran, beschäftigte sich lebhaft mit Naturwissenschaft, besonders mit Botanik, wurde 1851 Koadjutor des Bischofs in Karlsburg und 1852 dort Bischof, zuvor wurde er zum Titularbischof von Hebron ernannt. 1863 entsagte er seinem Bistum und lebte in Rom, bis er 1867 als Erzbischof von Kalocsa nach Ungarn zurückkehrte. Im Konsistorium am 12. Mai 1879 wurde er von Papst Leo XIII. zum Kardinal erhoben. Ihm wurde die Titelkirche Santa Maria degli Angeli zugewiesen. Er errichtete in Kalocsa ein reichdotiertes Gymnasium der Jesuiten und versah es 1877 mit einer Sternwarte. Sein Herbarium und seine botanische Bibliothek gehörten um 1890 zu den vollständigsten in Europa, auch lieferte er eine wertvolle Arbeit über die Pflanzen der Bibel. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina ernannte ihn 1867 zu ihrem Mitglied" (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch, Deutsch u. Lateinisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u.

        COLUMBIA PHOENIX. Vol. 1, No. 2 [caption title]

      Columbia: J.A. Selby, Thursday, March 23, 1865.. [6]pp. Single-sheet newspaper folded in three. Browned, light dampstaining and foxing, in original state with edges untrimmed. Very good. The second issue of the COLUMBIA PHOENIX, published in the Union-occupied capital of South Carolina in late March, 1865. In the aftermath of its destruction by fire in the last several months of the Civil War, the COLUMBIA PHOENIX rose from the ashes of Columbia, South Carolina, to record the destruction of that city immediately after its occupation by Union forces under General William T. Sherman. After completing his famous March to the Sea at Savannah, Georgia just before Christmas, 1864, Sherman turned his seasoned army northward in February, 1865. Columbia was in the path of Sherman's march, and surrendered on Feb. 17, 1865. The night of the occupation, fires sprang up and spread quickly, fanned by high winds. Whether the fires were intentional or an accident, caused by drunken Union soldiers or otherwise, remains a controversy to this day. The city's firemen and the Union army both rushed to put out the flames, but in the ensuing chaos, much of the city was destroyed. Sherman's troops then proceeded to demolish anything left of strategic military value. Starting literally from scratch, newspaperman Julian A. Selby scoured the state for a press and materials, printing the first issue of the COLUMBIA PHOENIX on March 21, 1865. This second followed two days later. The first ten issues chronicled the destruction of the city. Crudely printed on poor-quality paper, this issue gives a detailed description of the Union invasion, provides a list of residences and other buildings that succumbed to the fire, and prints a letter of thanks to the "Israelites in Columbia" for their handsome conduct after the fire. The newspaper struck a defiant tone, declaring, 'Our city shall spring, from her ashes, and our Phoenix, we hope and trust, shall announce the glorious rising! God save the state!" The paper survived, with some changes of name and format, for the next decade. In April 1865, the newspaper split into the COLUMBIA PHOENIX, a daily, and the COLUMBIA TRI-WEEKLY PHOENIX, which was published every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The daily paper changed its name to COLUMBIA DAILY PHOENIX in May 1865 and then became the DAILY PHOENIX in July. The TRI- WEEKLY PHOENIX ran until 1875.
