NATHANIEL LYON
Engraving of the Union general killed in 1861 during The Battle of Wilson's Creek
Engraving unsigned, 8x11. Facsimile signature featured at bottom center. “Likeness from a recent Photograph from life” written below facsimile signature. Issued by Johnson, Fry & Co. Publishers, N.Y. Nathaniel Lyon (1818-1961) was the first Union general to be killed in the U.S. Civil War. In 1841, Lyon graduated 11th in his class of 52. Prior to fighting in the Civil War, Lyon participated in the Second Seminole War and in the Mexican-American War. He was made commander of the Union arsenal in St. Louis, Missouri in February 1861. Although he perished while attempting to rally his troops in The Battle of Wilson's Creek, he was instrumental in helping prevent the State of Missouri from joining the Confederacy. Lightly toned. Corners and edges gently worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
