MAJR. GENL. GEORGE B. McCLELLAN. GENERAL IN CHIEF OF THE U.S. ARMY.

[New York]: Currier & Ives, [late 1861 or 1862]. Broadside, 11" x 15." Blank edges with shallow chipping. A three-quarter portrait of McClellan in blue uniform with gold trappings, facing right in image. Broadside toned but image is bright. Good+.

A rare Currier & Ives production, commemorating McClellan's elevation to General in Chief in late 1861. This appears to be a variation of Conningham 3906, almost identical but McClellan here has a buckled belt at his waist and faces the opposite direction. Possibly No. 151, Collection of STEPHEN VAN RENSSELAER , sold at Anderson Galleries Auction, 1925, but unable to confirm.
