Lot 42: Uncommon 2.25 x 4 carte-de-visite bust portrait of Grant in uniform, nicely signed across the bottom of the image in black ink, "U. S. Grant, Lt. Gen. U.S.A." In very good condition, with a repaired tear extending from the top edge to the upper portion of the image, uniform toning, and some chipping to edges. Grant was promoted to lieutenant general and given command of all Union Armies on March 9, 1864, so this carte-de-visite would have been signed sometime between this 1864 promotion and Grant's entry into the White House in 1869.
