15428 Maj Gen James McPherson - CDV General McPherson
was beloved by many and seen as an invaluable asset to the
military.  He was appointed by U.S. Grant to be Chief
Military Engineer.  When the war broke out, he went to the
battlefield at Corinth, Mississippi where he commanded an
infantry brigade.  He later would be appointed to lead the
Union’s 17th Corps during the campaign to capture
Vicksburg.  He continued to rise in rank and led 12,00 men
during the Battle of Raymond.  McPherson died at age 36,
when he was killed during the Atlanta Campaign.  General
Sherman wept openly upon hearing about the death of the
Major General. Back marked E & H.T. Anthony, Brady's
