Original CDV by Whipple of Boston, showing a man photographed in profile holding what appears to be a gray kepi against his hip. Signed in ink along the bottom,

"Wm. F. Lee, 1861".

Is this a very rare CDV of William Henry Fitzhugh “Rooney” Lee, Civil War Confederate Major General, US Congressman, and son of Confederate General Robert E. Lee? In 1861 he joined the Confederate army as a cavalry officer under J.E.B Stuart, but up until then he had reason to be in Massachusetts, where this was taken by Whipple, having attending Harvard University.

I can't positively ID him since I am unable to find another example of this image, but it does resemble an 1858 photo of him I found online (Google). Thoughts are welcome.

CDV is in very good to excellent antique condition, dimensions are 4.25" x 2.5".
