Formal Halleck portrait signed while General in Chief

Union general (1815–1872), known as ‘Old Brains,’ who, despite his administrative skill as general in chief, failed to achieve an overall battle strategy for Union forces. Lincoln once described him as ‘little more than a first rate clerk.’ Vintage 2.25 x 4 carte-de-visite photo of Halleck in full dress uniform by J. Gurnsey & Son of New York, signed below the image in black ink, “H. W. Halleck, Genl in Chf.” In fine condition, with a bit of scattered trivial soiling and a couple of small impressions to top border. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
