Carte de visite of General Ambrose Everett Burnside, who served in the Union Army during the Civil War. A very well-liked general, he was nevertheless roundly criticized for his handling of troops in battle. He is particularly known for his sloth in assaulting what is now known as Burnside's Bridge at Antietam, which may have resulted in a stalemate rather than a potential Union victory. Burnside also fought at Bull Run, South Mountain, Fredericksburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania Courthouse, Cold Harbor, and the Crater. He lends a reversed form of his name to his distinctive facial hair, "side burns"
