FITZHUGH LEE
Shown in uniform on this 4¼x6½ cabinet card, signing as Governor of Virginia
Photograph Signed: "Fitzhugh Lee/Governor of Virginia". Sepia, 4¼x6½ cabinet card by C. M. Bell of Washington. Fitzhugh Lee (1835-1905), the nephew of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, graduated From West Point in 1856. He was assigned to the cavalry in Texas and was wounded in a skirmish with Indians (1859), before returning to West Point as an instructor. The Virginian joined the Confederate army at the outbreak of the Civil War, rising from lieutenant to general in a single year. At Chancellorsville (1863), it was his cavalry reconnaissance that revealed the vulnerable right flank of the Union army, leading to one of the greatest Confederate victories of the war. Elected Governor of Virginia (1885-1893), he also authored a biography of Robert E. Lee (1894). Appointed by President Cleveland as Consul General in Havana, his dispatches on the situation in Cuba influenced the move toward war with Spain in 1898. Fitzhugh, was appointed commander of the U.S. Army VII Corps, which occupied Cuba after the war. The former Confederate was buried in the blue uniform of the U.S. Army. Tack head-size hole at center of top margin. Lightly worn. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
