Description

Very nice carte view of Major David Vickers, Jr.  Vickers originally mustered with Co. B of the 3rd New Jersey Infantry in late May of 1861 but within days received a promotion to captain of Co. A of that same regiment. At the end of September of 1863 he was discharged for a promotion to Major with the 4th New Jersey Infantry. He would serve with the 4th up until his capture on May 12, 1864 while engaged at Spotsylvania Court House. Confined at Macon, Georgia and later Columbia, South Carolina he would eventually be released. He ended his career with a promotion to colonel in March of 1865 and then again to Brevet Brig. General in May of that same year. After the war he spent time serving as a diplomat to Cuba before his death in June of 1908. This is a nice view of Vickers with a period ink identification along the bottom front. Back marked by Manger’s of Philadelphia. No bends or creases in this one either!
