Original 1865 Mathew Brady Albumen Photograph

1865 Mathew Brady Albumen Card Mount Photograph of West Point US Army Major Lewis C. Overman, from the West Point Class Album of 1865, Choice Near Mint.

This beautiful 1865 Mathew Brady Photograph of US Army Major Lewis C. Overman, shown at the time of his graduation from the US Military Academy at West Point. This wonderful oval shaped portrait measures approx. 3.75" x 5" and is mounted on its original card mount to an overall size of 10.2" x 9.4". It pictures the young Cadet who was graduating as a 1st Lieutenant in the Army Corps of Engineers.

Included below is a scan of Chase's Military Service record which spanned the period 1865 until at least 1890. His military service included duty at New York, Iowa, Texas, Tennessee, Lake Erie, the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, etc. 1865 was the only year that Brady Studios photographed the Cadets and Grounds at West Point and produced the Class Album. We recently purchased a small group card mount photos from the 1865 Class Album and we have been offering them for sale over the last few months. The photo is mounted on the original card mount / Album page and framed with a thin, gold gilt line. The photographer's credit is also printed in gold gilt ink and reads simply "Brady / New York". The photograph is in excellent condition - the focus is sharp, the tonality is deep and the contrast is strong.
