Moore copyrighted an “oleograph” version of it (the chromolithograph) in Milwaulkee in 1879, with the title Confederate Note Memorial…”. The consignor obtained several copies of the chromolithograph, the canteen, and letters from a descendant. The detailed painting of the canteen accompanied with the Civil War letter copies relating to the Moore family suggests the canteen may have been decorated by Charles Moore and belonged to him. This lot also contains six (6) photo copies of Civil War era letters. Recent biographical information from a Moore descendant includes the following: Charles Franklin Moore was born Feb 14,1831 in St.Johnsbury, VT . He lived most of his life in Alabama where he owned a successful photography studio and was a self taught artist with many of his portraits in the possession of the family. Charles Moore served in the Confederate army, reaching the rank of Captain with the Alabama Infantry, 1st Regiment Company D. Moore married Mary Frances Terrell Rembert in Kansas City, MO and they had a son James Lovell Moore. Mr. Charles Moore died on December 3,1875 in Dayton, AL at the age of 44. Alabama state records shows a Charles F. Moore with the 1st Alabama Regiment, Company D “Red Eagles” as a volunteer on sick leave. The discrepancy between the middle initial with the Charles E. Moore referenced in The Confederate Image: Prints of the Lost Cause and the Charles F. Moore biography above has not been resolved at this time. Est. $900-$1200. Realized $1,362.

Tomp–.” Very good condition with slight browning visible on shirt, frame loose from having been examined out of frame. 2 3/4″ H x 2 1/4″ W. A portrait miniature artist and dioramist, John Wood Dodge was born in New York City and was a member of the National Academy. In 1839, suffering ill health and possibly seeking an area with fewer competitors, he moved to Southern states and lived as an itinerant portraitist, basing himself in Nashville. From 1840 until 1861, he painted the likenesses of many of the region’s most prominent citizens, including Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay. By 1857, Dodge was still painting portraits on ivory but also coloring over photographs, as photography became a greater influence in the field of portraiture. However, examination of this particular painting under high power magnification indicates, in our opinion, that it is executed entirely in watercolor on paper. A similar Dodge portrait miniature on paper of John Harding is in the collection of the Tennessee State Museum. The sitter’s identity has not been determined. Dodge’s account books do not contain the year 1857. However, 1860 census records show a well-to-do land owner named George T.
