Hoen & Co. Richmond." Upper left corner damp stained, upper right corner extra-illustrated with a confederate flag and flag pole pasted on. Moderate darkening and browning to margins. In contemporary 19th century composite frame, 27 1/2" x 23". Several chips and dings to the frame, with some loss to the composite. A near Good print in good period frame. . ****Following the Civil War, there was such a high demand for a photograph of Lee sitting astride his much loved war horse, Traveler, that Alexander Gardner worked with Michael Miley of Lexington, VA to accomplish the task. Miley made his first attempt to take the picture in Lexington in the summer of 1866, but it was so hot that he had to try again in September. The resulting photograph became one of the most popular portraits of Lee, especially in the South (Meredith, 1981: 68-71)****. Bookseller Inventory # 001226
