Pelham Picture Sells at Auction

9 07 2010

Thanks to Paul Taylor we learn that a long-lost, though often copied, original photo of John Pelham has sold at auction for $41,825.  The photo was taken in 1858 when Pelham was on leave from the U. S. Military Academy, and has remained in the family of Pelham’s sister for over 100 years (more here, source of the image at left).

Read Pelham’s account of his experience at First Bull Run here.
