Killed in the Atlanta campaign

(1828-64) Graduated #1 in the West Point class of 1853, a class which included Philip H. Sheridan and John Bell Hood. Eleven years after their graduation, now Confederate general Hood opposed McPherson before Atlanta, and Hood's battle order would result in the death of his old classmate. By the fall of 1862, McPherson had risen to rank of major general. He saw service at Forts Henry and Donelson, Shiloh, Corinth and Vicksburg. On March 26, 1864, he was given command of the Army of the Tennessee which he led in the subsequent campaign in northern Georgia. McPherson was killed before Atlanta on July 22, 1864. General William T. Sherman's tears rolled through his beard and down on the floor when he viewed the dead body of his friend laid upon a door torn from its hinges and improvised as a bier.

Antique engraving of McPherson in uniform with rank of major general with sword and holding slouch hat. He is standing inside fortifications with an artillery sponge and the smoke of battle in the background. Printed facsimile signature under his likeness. Imprint: From the original painting by Nast in the possession of the publisher. Johnson, Fry & Co., Publishers, New York. Entering according to act of Congress A.D. 1865 by Johnson, Fry & Co. in the clerk's office of the district court in the southern dist. of N.Y. 7 1/2 x 10 1/2. Light age toning.
