Abstract:

Artificial image collection for Elmer E. Ellsworth, a colonel with the 11th New York Infantry Regiment who became the first well-known casualty of the Civil War. The collection includes an enlarged copy print of a carte-de-visite and five copy photographs of two daguerreotypes. The oversized image shows Ellsworth posing in uniform and was taken from a cartes-de-visite released to honor him after his death. The copy photographs are of two daguerreotypes of Ellsworth posing in uniform and wearing a corps badge. The daguerreotypes were stolen in 1978 from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum while still residing in the Wisconsin State Capitol building. At some point, the images were also misidentified as being Edward A. Russell. Russell served as a private for five months in 1865 and would not have been wearing the officer's uniform and medals seen in the images. Museum records also show that Ellsworth had donated the images of Russell, indicating that the names had been accidentally transposed. Before the Civil War, Ellsworth had traveled to various locations to raise Zouave units. He spent the fall and winter of 1858 drilling the Governor's Guard in Madison. Ellsworth then joined Abraham Lincoln's law office in 1860 and supported Lincoln in his campaign for President. After war broke out in 1861, Ellsworth raised the 11th New York and was ordered to Alexandria, Virginia where he was killed while trying to remove a Confederate flag from an inn. His likeness became a very popular print during the war.
