Gift of the National General Krzyzanowski Memorial Commitee
A native of Poland, the subject came to the U.S. at the age of twenty-two and became a civil engineer. He joined the Union army in 1861 and attained the rank of brigadier general. Following the war he held various government posts, the last of which was with the U.S. Customs House in New York. This portrait is based on a photograph by Gray in the Society's collection.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
