    We have another (pinterest) special case in Arthur MacArthur Jr., as he got his stars just at end of the century.

    [​IMG]

    MacArthur (1845-1912), son of a governor and father of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, spent the civil war as an officer in the 24th Wisconsin Infantry, becoming Colonel when it was mustered out. He later was awarded the Medal of Honor for his services at Missionary Ridge. MacArthur stayed in the army and participated in the Indian Wars, the Spanish-American and the Philippine-American Wars. He finally retired as Lieutenant General in 1909.

    Another pinterest find said to be U.S. Grant during Mexico, however the damage is pretty annoying.

    What a great find if proven to be Grant! Is there anyone that could shed light on this?

    I've seen 3 or 4 photos of Crittenden. He has straight hair in each of the photos. Not wavy like the man in this photo. This guy has a nose like Rosecrans.

    AWESOME!!! Class of 1847. Dated to 1846; the earliest dedicated photographed portrait of a West Point cadet I know.
