18155 General Winfield Scott Hancock - CDV of
General Winfield wearing his General’s frockcoat with
shoulder straps.  The General sits comfortably in a
Gentleman’s chair with one arm resting on the table.  
President Grant said General Hancock, “stands as the
most conspicuous figure of all the general officers who
did not exercise a separate command.  He commanded
a corps longer than another one, and his name was
never mentioned as having committed in a battle a
blunder for which he was responsible.  He was a man
of very conspicuous personal appearance...His genial
disposition made him friends, and his personal courage
and his presence with his command in the thickest of
the fight won for him the confidence of troops serving
under him.  No matter how hard the fight, the 2d corps
always felt that their commander was looking after
them.” The General fought, encouraged, and led all the
men under his command through each of the battles of
which he was a part. Back marked E&HT Anthony,
