Nurse/Red Cross Founder Clara Barton ALS and Signed Photo

PRICE…SOLDclarabartonclarabarton2

Excellent combination of two items: an extremely sharp matte-finish 4.5 x 6.75 portrait of Barton by Purdy of Boston, signed in the lower border in fountain pen; and an ALS by Barton, two pages on two adjoining sheets, March 28, 1906, in part: “I am very happy to send a photo…You are in the vicinity of the ‘later work’ of which I speak, and would be glad if both yourself and Mr. Harwood could meet personally the efficient workers doing such faithful work at the Headqrs—Beacon St.” Nicely matted and framed together. In fine condition. Barton is uncommon in signed photos and this example boasts ideal provenance in her handwritten letter which also mentions her work.

Clarissa “Clara” Harlowe Barton (December 25, 1821 – April 12, 1912) was a pioneering nurse who founded the American Red Cross. She worked as a hospital nurse in the American Civil War, and as a teacher and patent clerk. Barton is noteworthy for doing humanitarian work at a time when relatively few women worked outside the home. She had a relationship with John J. Elwell, but never married.

General John S. Mosby ALS

PRICE…SOLD

Fantastic ALS signed “Jno. S. Mosby,” one page, Massanetta Spring Water letterhead, July 12, 1913. This letter has  direct reference to the Civil War as he recollects the famous “Greenback Raid”. Letter to “Dear Fount,” presumably Fount Beattie, one of Mosby’s rangers. In part: “I went in to Harrisburg today & sent you today’s paper. I really thought until I read Charlie Dean’s interview that I was present when the greenbacks were captured…etc…”

In very good condition, with partial separations to intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), several tears and small areas of paper loss to left edge, dampstaining to the left side, and significant mirroring to ink.

Although Mosby and his men were technically part of J. E. B. Stuart’s cavalry, they operated largely as an independent guerilla force. On October 14, 1864, Mosby and eighty of his rangers robbed a train on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad—an event often referred to as The Greenback Raid—and got away with so much money that each man’s share amounted to over $2,000. The success of this massive heist further enhanced the Mosby myth and legend.

(1832-1904) Born in Upson County, Ga., he had one of the most spectacular Civil War and postbellum careers of any civilian who fought for the Confederacy. His army service began in 1861 with his election as captain of a mountaineer company from northwest Georgia called the “Raccoon Roughs,” and ended at Appomattox Court House as a corps commander. In between he fought magnificently on every battlefield in which the Army of Northern Virginia participated, except when he was absent from wounds. During the battle of Sharpsburg he was wounded several times, once severely in the head, and only a bullet hole in his cap prevented him from drowning in his own blood! He was promoted to brigadier general on November 1, 1862. He compiled a brilliant record in the Wilderness campaign, and in the Shenandoah Valley under General Jubal A. Early. His promotion to major general dated to rank from May 14, 1864. On the retreat from Petersburg, he was in command of one half of General R.E. Lee’s army. After the war Gordon returned to Georgia where he became the idol of the people of his native state. He was elected to the U.S. Senate three times and was Governor of Georgia from 1886-90. A prime organizer of the United Confederate Veterans, he was elected its first commander-in-chief and served in that position from 1890 until his death.

As the 14th was moving toward the town, “the men pushed forward along the Emmitsburg Turnpike. Upon reaching a point about two miles from Gettysburg … they suddenly beheld a panorama of the hills and valleys … spread out before them. At the same instant the sound of artillery fire was borne to them on the morning wind. … It looked like serious work ahead …” – C.V. Tevis, regimental historian The 14th fell back, re-aligned with the 95th New York near and parallel to the Chambersburg Pike, and lay down for several minutes. Then, as recalled in the regiment’s history, “[a]t the Colonel’s command they rushed forward with a cheer. There was an ascent of about three feet at the pike. As the troops … reached this little eminence, they were met with a murderous hail of musket bullets. The balls came so thick and fast that the whirring noise they made sounded like the steady rhythm of machinery. For just an instant … the line wavered … and then, with another cheer … the men rushed on.” Fierce hand-to-hand fighting ensued as the Red-legged Devils engaged Davis’ Confederates at the railroad cut. The Brooklynites, together with the 6th Wisconsin and the 95th New York, trapped the Rebels in the railroad cut; more than 200 Confederates were captured there, along with the battle flag of the 2nd Mississippi. Later, as other Union regiments retreated from McPherson’s Ridge in the face of unrelenting pressure, the 14th Brooklyn once again found itself under heavy fire as it covered the withdrawal. During the Battle of Gettysburg, the 14th Brooklyn lost 13 killed, 105 wounded, and 99 missing out of 318 men engaged. This sixty-eight percent loss rate places the 14th among the top twenty Union regiments to suffer fifty percent or greater casualties at the battle. The regiment incurred most of its losses during the fighting along the Emmitsburg Turnpike and at the railroad cut. Their sacrifice at this critical time in the opening of the battle bought time for Union reinforcements to arrive and secure the ground.

Historical Information:

It was a desperate moment. The troops of the 20th Maine had been ordered to defend the left flank of the Federal line at Gettysburg “at all costs.” Led by Colonel Joshua L. Chamberlain, a 35 year-old college professor and Christian theologian, the men from Maine had successfully repulsed repeated attacks by courageous Confederates from Alabama. Finally, exhausted and low on ammunition the valiant soldiers from Maine appeared near the breaking point. As the determined Southerners renewed the attack on Little Round Top with another assault against the Federal left flank. Chamberlain knew what was at stake. If his troops could not hold the line and the flank was turned, the Federal army might be destroyed, the battle lost – and the war with it.

Facing what appeared to be impending destruction, Chamberlain did the unexpected: he ordered a bayonet charge. The battle-weary men in blue obediently fixed bayonets, charged down the hill Into the face of the enemy – and shattered the final Confederate assault. The day was won.

Chamberlain would rise to brigadier general, survive four battle wounds, officially receive the surrender of Lee’s army at Appomattox and enjoy postwar prominence as governor of Maine. Yet despite his many achievements he would always be remembered for his leadership in those desperate moments at Little Round Top on the second day at Gettysburg. Like his Confederate counterpart, General Robert E. Lee, Chamberlain would be revered for his wartime character. How did he and his troops do it? He would be asked that question repeatedly for the rest of his life. His reply: “In the privations and sufferings endured… in battle, some of the highest qualities of manhood are called forth – courage, self-command, and sacrifice of self for the sake of something held higher….” To generations of Americans – Southerners as well as Northerners – Joshua Chamberlain would hold an enduring position as the Hero of Little Round Top.
