Ulysses S. Grant in Mathew Brady's studio, sometime before his presidency (I assume). You can even see the special backdrop he uses, aswell as how the skylight hits Grant.

I've got a few for you Zuzah, if you can manage the time and if you haven't done them before.

Ambrose Burnside with staff in 1861. This seems very early in war as the uniforms look badly tailored and very loose fitting.



Burnside later on.



And Burnside post war. The man, for all his faults, had a very interesting look.



All of these are taken from Wiki.

I've very recently become interested in him because he seemed to have responsibilities thrust on him that he in no way wanted or was prepared for. A somewhat tragic man in my opinion.

Yes, it was quite tragic indeed. He was thrusted in to a position he didn't want to take, I'm sure he knew he wasn't as capable as some of the other generals, and then he was blamed for his shortcomings. I think he was an able bodied commander, just not with such big numbers under his responsibility.

I think it'll please you to know I've already done 2/3 of the ones you linked, and if you're able to find the first one somewhere (Library of Congress) where it's slightly higher resolution, I'll definitely do that one too - been meaning to do it for a while now.

Older age:



Gonna have to re-colorize the younger one of him in uniform though, the one I have is far outdated - give me about 10 minutes.
