Lot of 3 CDVs, including uncredited bust portrait of David Bullock Harris as a major. Harris (1814-1864) was a CSA colonel, serving mostly as an engineer under the command of General Beauregard, though he also participated in the First Battle of Bull Run in July of 1861. As an engineer in the army, Harris planned and constructed fortifications at Centreville, Fort Pillow, Island Number Ten, Vicksburg, Charleston, and Petersburg. He died of yellow fever at Summerville, SC in October of 1864. CDV by Quinby & Co., Charleston, of General David F. Jamison (1810-1864) who was a prominent South Carolina slaveholder, soldier, and statesman. He served in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1836-1848, notably introducing a bill to establish a military school at The Citadel during his tenure as chairman of the Military Committee. Jamison rose to greater prominence when he led South Carolina's Secession Convention in 1860. After the Ordinance for Secession was signed on December 20, 1860, it was Jamison who made the official announcement. The following month, Governor Pickens appointed Jamison as South Carolina's first Secretary of War, in which capacity he helped prepare battlements at Fort Sumter. Jamison succumbed to yellow fever before the end of the war, dying in Charleston in 1864. CDV of the Citadel in Charleston, SC, with African American cadet seated near a monument on the parade ground. Condition: Harris CDV with pinhole punctures at multiple points on Harris's jacket, pencil marks over his beard, a few spots of discoloration, and wear to upper left corner. Jamison CDV with adhesive and paper remnant at upper right corner, and a few spots of discoloration throughout. The Citadel CDV with light fading and a possible line abrasion at bottom center.
