GENERAL JOHN ADAMS DIX Matthew Brady 2¼x3½ carte de visite of the Civil War general and future New York governor, in dress uniform, with sabre Photograph Signed: "John A. Dix". Sepia, 2¼x3½ carte de visite, signed in lower margin. Photo by famed Civil War-era photographer Matthew Brady's National Photographic Portrait Gallery, New York. As President James Buchanan's Secretary of the Treasury (1861), John Adams Dix (1798-1879) telegraphed this famous order to the American cutter Robert McClelland in the port of New Orleans on Jan. 29, 1861, less than three months before the start of the American Civil War: "If any man attempts to haul down the American Flag, shoot him on the spot". Dix later commanded the Department of Virginia (1862-1863) and the Department of the East (1863-1865). After the Civil War, Dix, who had been a U. S. Senator from New York (1845-1849), was U. S. Minister to France (1866-1869) and Governor of New York (1872-1874). The U.S. Army's Fort Dix in New Jersey is named in his honor. Slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
