Very Rare Original Civil War Period Carte de Visite Photo of President George Washington Greeting the Marquis de Lafayette at Mt. Nice original Civil War period carte de visite photo of President GEORGE WASHINGTON greeting his Revolutionary War colleage, French Major General Lafayette.Great pose, with children and ladies in the compostion, on the porch of the great mansion. A great patriotic pose of the 2 Revolutionary War leaders and heroes. Labelled Washington and Lafayette at Mt.
Original CdV card and measurements. From the Civil War period, 160+ years old now.During the war it was very popular and typical to include CdVs of celebrities in a family CDV album, especially of patriotic figures. Helped show their patriotic fervor during the war. Didn't get much better than the Revolution and anything dealing with Washington. I have seen them of Washington & family, Lincoln & Washington together in heaven, etc. I have, however, NEVER SEEN THIS ONE WITH LAFAYETTE.
This is a great one to include in any period album or Civil War display or collection. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\Civil War (1861-65)\Original Period Items\Photographs". The seller is "marvinsmom9" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
