Item No. CV69877 Category


Beautiful carte view of Daniel Grafly of the U.S. Navy. Daniel would enter service in the United States Navy late in April, 1862. He would be appointed 3rd assistant engineer aboard the sloop of war U.S.S. Mohican in June, 1862. Later that year he would transfer to the sloop U.S.S Keystone State. September of 1863, Daniel would be on detached service onboard the side wheel steamer U.S.S. Sassacus. Promoted to 2nd assistant engineer in 1864, he would next serve aboard the gunboat U.S.S Suwanee beginning in October, 1864. He would end the war serving on board this vessel but would remain in the Navy until 1872 when he would resign his commission but not before being promoted to 1st assistant engineer. Beginning in 1867, Daniel would be on special duty at Chattanooga and later on detached service at the Naval Academy. He would also serve aboard both the U.S.S Wabash and U.S.S. Tuscarora before his eventual resignation. This view bears a period ink id on the reverse reading “Yours truly D. W. Grafly Lima, July 1865”. This does come with some paper work on Daniel as well as an original 1892 copy of “Scouts, Spies and Heroes” in which the the battle between the U.S.S. Sassacus on which Daniel was serving and the C.S.S. Albermarle is documented. Extremely nice view!
