Pristine CDV of Irish Colonel Michael Corcoran, 69th New York Infantry
It would be impossible to find a finer photo of Col. Corcoran. He was wounded and taken prisoner at the battle of Bull Run. He was first confined in Richmond, Virginia and then in Charleston, South Carolina. Corcoran was promoted to Brigadier General following his heroism at Bull Run.

Our CDV shows Corcoran as Colonel… you can see the eagle on his straps… it’s that clear! The backmark is E. Anthony, N.Y. Upon his arrival from prison in New York there was a massive celebration, estimated to be 650,000 onlookers – until that time the largest crowd ever amassed in the United States! On December 22nd, 1863, while riding in company with General Thomas Meagher, he was killed.
