   19TH CENTURY COLLAGE CONTAINING THE SIGNATURES OF MANY IMPORTANT CIVIL WAR GENERALS


 

Description:
This unusually graphic historical collage was likely assembled sometime between 1865 and the 1890�s. It contains eight printed paper portraits, three state crests (Massachusetts, Vermont, and Missouri), and a cabinet card-type print of Lincoln�s 1861 farewell address to his neighbors; but most importantly contains no less than eighty-six signatures, almost all of which belong to Union Civil War generals, some of whom were among the most interesting personalities of the era. Among these are the following men:

● James Garfield (general, President of the United States, 1880-84 term, assassinated in 1881)

● Winfield Scott Hancock (general, 1880 presidential candidate who ran against Garfield, West Point graduate, 1844)

● John Fremont (general, the first Republican to run for president, 1856)

● Joseph K. Barnes, Surgeon General

● George Meade (General, Comm. Army of the Potomac, defeated Lee at Gettysburg, W.P., 1835)

● Philip Henry Sheridan (Cavalry Comm., Army of the Potomac, burned the Shenandoah Valley, instrumental in Lee�s surrender, W.P., 1853)

● Daniel Edgar Sickles (a famous and controversial character, lost his leg at Gettysburg)

● John Gibbon (Comm. the Iron Brigade, gave them their black hats, W.P., 1847)

● John Adams Dix (Outranked all volunteer officers, as he was first on the list on May 16 1861. Governor of New York, U.S. Senator, Secretary of the Treasury, namesake of Ft. Dix, NJ)

● Joseph Jones (J.J.) Reynolds (Chief of Staff, Army of the Cumberland, W.P., 1843)

● Joseph Hooker (Comm. Army of the Potomac at Chancellorsville, W.P., 1837)

● John McAllister Schofield (namesake of Schofield Barracks, W.P., 1853)

● John Pope (W.P., 1842)

● George Henry �Pap� Thomas (Comm. Army of the Cumberland, W.P., 1840)

● Andrew Atkinson Humphreys (Aide to McClellan, Chief of Staff to Meade, W.P., 1831)

● Jefferson C. Davis (killed Gen. William Nelson in a quarrel, 1862)

● Frederick Steele (W.P., 1843)

● John James Peck (W.P., 1843)

● Oliver Otis Howard (W.P., 1854)

● Irvin McDowell (W.P., 1838)

And many others who I have either not yet recorded or identified.
