JOSEPH HOOKER
Bust view image of the Union general on a 2½x4¼ carte de visite
Photograph signed: "Joseph Hooker/Maj. Gnl.". Sepia, 2½x4¼ carte de visite. Joseph Hooker (1814-1879) was called "Fighting Joe" by the press as a result of an 1862 incident in which his horse was shot from under him and, after falling in the mud, he continued to lead his troops. In September, 1862, he was wounded at Antietam. Hooker succeeded Burnside as commander of the Army of the Potomac on January 26, 1863. After his numerically superior army was thrashed by Robert E. Lee at Chancellorsville, he was replaced by General George Meade on June 28 as commander of the Army of the Potomac. Despite his removal, he received a Thanks of Congress for his part in the Gettysburg Campaign. He took part in other battles, including Sherman's capture of Atlanta, but was assigned to administrative duties from late 1864. Slightly worn. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
