General Alfred H. Terry

Union general Alfred H. Terry poses in dress uniform for a photographic portrait in the second half of the nineteenth century. This glass-plate image is part of the Brady-Handy Collection of negatives at the Library of Congress. The collection combines the work of Mathew B. Brady and his nephew Levin D. Handy, who ran several photographic studios in Washington, D.C. The majority of the negatives are portraits taken during and after the Civil War, but the collection also includes views of Washington, D.C.
