Cdv Jefferson Davis By Fredricks In Havana  Given To Hostess

CDV JEFFERSON DAVIS BY FREDRICKS IN HAVANA GIVEN TO HOSTESS

Description :
Vintage, original albumen photograph on CDV of Confederate President Jefferson Davis by the Charles D. Fredricks studio in Havana, Cuba, in 1867. Probably the best known image of Davis was done by Mathew Brady just before the war, and during the war Davis had only one photograph taken, in 1864 by Vannerson & Jones of Richmond. It was this Vannerson image which was copies by Fredricks in Havana when Davis. out on bail, and his wife visited and stayed with an old friend, Mrs. Sarah Greer Brewer, who had settled in Havana after her husband died. And Mrs. Brewer had also played a role in the war. With her considerable wealth from her hotel business she had helped finance the outfitting of blockade runners and she had performed as a Confederate agent carrying messages between Havana and New York. On the verso, in Mrs. Brewer's hand, is a note: "Jefferson Davis presented to Mrs. S. E. Brewer at Havana Cuba at the close of the Civil War." This would indicate that it was Davis who had the Vannerson image copied by Fredricks. Later Davis and his wife traveled to Montreal where the noted photographer William Notman made several new images and Davis later sent one of these inscribed to Mrs. Brewer. In near fine condition.
