The Rev. H.M. Wharton was the compiler and editor of the popular War Songs and Poems of the Southern Confederacy, 1861 - 1865, to which he added his reminiscences of serving as a private in Lee's army. This print appears as Plate 20, page 185, in Jacobs', THE LIFE AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF DORIS ULMANN.
Doris Ulmann (1882-1934), although prolific, the majority of her photographs are unique prints, and of these, most are left unsigned. As was her practice, Doris Ulmann only SIGNED those photographs she exhibited or intended to exhibit. She is particularly well known for her portraiture, having published several portfolios in magazines as well as three books of portraits.
