Philip Kearny (1814-1862)

Kearny was a major general of volunteers in the Union Army. Kearny was killed at Chantilly when Confederate soldiers called on him to surrender and he tried to fight his way out. Kearny sent his wife this photo of himself in Hussar uniform, then wrote her a few weeks before his death, "I am surprised you like it. I thought it made me look old and pallid, thin and nasty, a bitter namy pamby, with theatrically fierce eyes."
