Commanded the 2nd Corps, Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg where he was seriously wounded repulsing Pickett's Charge!

Imprint of W.H. Tipton, Gettysburg, Pa.


(1824-1886) Graduated in the West Point class of 1844. He earned a brevet for gallantry in the Mexican War. Played a gallant role in the 1862 Virginia Peninsular campaign, and in the 1862 Maryland campaign which climaxed into the bloody battle of Antietam. He greatly distinguished himself in the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. During the battle of Gettysburg, Hancock commanded the 2nd Corps, Army of the Potomac. His decisive actions on July 1, 1863 helped to save the strategic Culp's Hill for General Meade's army. On July 3rd, his corps became the focal point for the celebrated Pickett's Charge in which he was seriously wounded, but refused to leave the battlefield until the victory was secured. After his recovery, he went on to fight in the battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor, Va., and earned the sobriquet "Hancock The Superb." In 1880, he was the Democratic nominee for the Presidency of the United States. He was narrowly defeated by another ex Civil War General, the soon to be assassinated president, James A. Garfield.

Boudoir cabinet card photograph, on thick 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 card mount, with gold lettering on the front of the mount, W.H. Tipton, Gettysburg, Pa. Period ink inscription on the reverse of the card, "1901- Gen. W.S. Hancock." This classic, seated war time view shows Hancock in a Napoleonic style pose with one hand inside of his double breasted frock coat with shoulder straps, with the rank of major general. There is a tiny chip to the card mount at the upper right corner. Only the outer black paper portion of the mount is chipped. The corner itself is still there. Light wear, some scattered foxing and surface blemishes, and age toning. This image was produced by W.H. Tipton, in Gettysburg, circa 1880's. The ID on the reverse refers to the year the owner of the photograph wrote the inscription. Very popular General Hancock image with Gettysburg photographer's imprint.

William H. Tipton was well known as the "Gettysburg Battlefield Photographer." He produced numerous views of the battlefield, as well as portraits, and is probably the most popular of all the Gettysburg photographers. Tipton served on the Gettysburg town council, and was a member of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives. He is interred in Evergreen Cemetery in Gettysburg.
