CDVs of Col. Elmer Ellsworth and His Avenger, Lieut. Frank Brownell
Lot # - CDVs of Col. Elmer Ellsworth and His Avenger, Lieut. Frank Brownell
Lot of 2, including an uncredited copy carte of Ellsworth and a fine portrait of Brownell by D. Woodworth, Albany, NY. 

Elmer E. Ellsworth (1837-1861), of course, was the Lincoln campaign aide who became the first conspicuous casualty of the Civil War.  When President Lincoln spotted a large Confederate flag flying over Alexandria just days after Virginia's secession, Colonel Ellsworth led his personally raised Fire Zouaves (the 11th New York Regt.) across the state line in order to rectify the disgrace.  While descending the staircase of Alexandria's Marshall House Inn with the flag in hand, Ellsworth was killed with a shotgun blast fired by innkeeper James W. Jackson, who was then promptly shot and killed by Brownell.  Francis E. Brownell (1840-1894)  was rewarded with the Medal of Honor and a commission in the regular army but, more importantly, the sensational story of he and Ellsworth became a rallying call for thousands of patriotic Northerners who would enlist in the following months.
