Very clear seated pose of Union General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick. Backmark is of C.D. Fredricks & Co. New York.

Known as "Kilcavalry" (or "Kill-Cavalry") for using tactics in battle that were considered as a reckless disregard for lives of soldiers under his command, Kilpatrick was both praised for the victories he achieved, and despised by southerners whose homes and towns he devastated. First a West Point cadet, then achieving the rank of brevet major general during the Civil War. He was later the United States Minister to Chile. Kilpatrick died in Santiago Chile in 1881 and his remains were eventually reburied at West Point.
