Civil War Senator and Governor of Missouri Benjamin Gratz Brown Signature

PRICE…$85

Signed in ink “B. Gratz Brown” as Governor of Missouri. Dated 1872. Slip of paper measures 7.75 X 3. Overall fine condition, a nice clean signature ideal for framing. Photo not included.

About:

Benjamin Gratz Brown (May 28, 1826 – December 13, 1885) was an American politician. He was a Senator, the 20th Governor of Missouri, and the Liberal Republican and Democratic Party vice presidential candidate in the presidential election of 1872.

Born in Frankfort, Kentucky, Brown established a legal practice in St. Louis, Missouri. Both of his grandfathers, John Brown and Jesse Bledsoe, represented Kentucky in the Senate. After settling in St. Louis, Brown won election to the Missouri House of Representatives. He became an ally of the Thomas Hart Benton and Francis Preston Blair Jr. in the struggle for control of the state Democratic Party against pro-slavery forces. As the 1850s progressed, Borwn continued to speak against slavery, and he helped found the Missouri Republican Party.

During the Civil War, Brown worked to keep Missouri in the Union. In 1863, he was elected to the Senate as a member of the Unconditional Union Party. In the Senate, he aligned with the Radical Republicans and opposed many of President Abraham Lincoln‘s policies. He was part of a movement that unsuccessfully sought to replace Lincoln as the 1864 Republican nominee. After the war, Brown strongly opposed President Andrew Johnson‘s Reconstruction policies and supported the Freedmen’s Bureau bills.

Brown resigned from the Senate in 1867 but helped found the Liberal Republican Party in 1870. The party chose Brown as its nominee for governor, and he defeated incumbent Republican Governor Joseph W. McClurg. Brown sought the new party’s 1872 presidential nomination but was defeated by Horace Greeley. After the nomination of Greeley, the 1872 Liberal Republican convention chose Brown as the party’s vice presidential nominee. Seeking to avoid splitting the vote of opponents to President Ulysses S. Grant‘s re-election, the 1872 Democratic National Convention subsequently nominated the Liberal Republican ticket. The Republican ticket nonetheless triumphed in the election, as Grant won 55.6% of the popular vote and a majority of the electoral vote. Greeley died after the election but before the electors officially cast their votes, and Brown received some of Greeley’s electoral votes. After the election, Gratz returned to his law practice and affiliated with the Democratic Party.

PRICE….$150

Signed on a blank page in ink. Boston, 25th September, 1861. Nice and bold with typical age toning. Beautiful signature and a great item to frame. 

About:

Edward Everett (April 11, 1794 – January 15, 1865) was a famous American politician, pastor, educator, diplomat, and orator from Massachusetts. Everett, a Whig, served as U.S. Representative, U.S. Senator, the 15th Governor of Massachusetts, Minister to Great Britain, and United States Secretary of State. He also taught at Harvard University and served as its president.

Everett was one of the great American orators of the antebellum and Civil War eras. He is often remembered today as the featured orator at the dedication ceremony of the Gettysburg National Cemetery in 1863, where he spoke for over two hours—immediately before President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous, two-minute Gettysburg Address.

Civil War Politician John A. Andrew War Date ALS

PRICE…$150

Mass. Governor John A. Andrew War Date ALS, 2 pages. Written on Commonwealth of Mass. letterhead dated November 28th, 1861 to Charles A. Dana. Overall very fine with typical folds. 

About: 

John Albion Andrew (May 31, 1818 – October 30, 1867) was an American lawyer and politician from Massachusetts. He was elected in 1860 as the 25th Governor of Massachusetts, serving between 1861 and 1866, and led the state’s contributions to the Union cause during the American Civil War. He was a guiding force behind the creation of some of the first African-American units in the United States Army, including the 54th Massachusetts Infantry.

Educated at Bowdoin College, Andrew was a radical abolitionist from an early age, engaged in the legal defense of fugitive slaves against owners seeking their return. He provided legal support to John Brown after his 1859 raid on Harpers Ferry, Virginia, raising his profile and propelling him to the Massachusetts governor’s chair. Andrew was a persistent voice criticizing Abraham Lincoln‘s conduct of the war, and pressing him to end slavery. By the end of the war his politics had moderated, and he came to support Andrew Johnson‘s Reconstruction agenda.

In Massachusetts, Andrew opposed the Know Nothing movement and the state’s strict alcohol prohibition laws, and oversaw the state takeover of the Hoosac Tunnel construction project. In 1865 he signed legislation establishing the Massachusetts State Police, the first statewide police force of its type in the nation. He died of apoplexy at the age of 49. -wikipedia

In that role Chase presided over the 1868 impeachment trial of president Andrew Johnson.

Civil War General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick War Date LS

kil1kil2A remarkable and detailed glimpse into Kilpatrick’s first engagement with the rebels

PRICE…SOLD

Civil War–dated LS boldy signed “Respectfully submitted, J. Kilpatrick, Lt. Col. Commanding,” three pages on two sheets, 7.75 x 10, April 20, 1862. This letter features altogether remarkable content from Kilpatrick’s first engagement with the rebel forces. This report was submitted to the governor of New York and reads in part written in another hand: “I have the honor to report that in the march from Catlett’s Station to Falmouth—a distance of 28 miles—the 2d New York Cavalry (popularly known as the Harris Light Cavalry) had the ‘front,’ and, as you have already learned, no doubt, met the enemy’s cavalry about 3 miles south of the Spotted Tavern, where my advanced guard received the first fire and charge of the Rebels, and where our men proved that they could not only receive, sustain, but return a charge. It was but a rush and a blow, and we saw the backs of our foe from that point to within a mile of Col. Lee’s camp. We skirmished with the enemy, driving him before us. Col. Lee’s whole force had left his camp to give us battle. I ordered Major Davies with his Battalion forward. Although this Battalion had not yet been engaged, they charged at a run and Lee’s cavalry was forced on fences into the woods in all directions to avoid the rush of our men and their biting sabres. We took several prisoners, killed and wounded five, and captured many horses. I regret to state that Lieut. Nelson J. Decker, of Co. D, fell at the head of his men, at the site of the rebel camp—a brave soldier and more gallant gentleman the Army does not furnish.”

In fine condition. This is a fantastic piece of history and would be a welcome addition to any collection.

General Ulysses S. Grant War Date Endorsement

grantgrant2PRICE…SOLD

Self-contained war-dated endorsement, signed “U. S. Grant,” one page, 3.25 x 6.25, dated September 14, 1864. Written in another hand, Grant recommends New York Governor Horatio Seymour approve a general’s request, in full: “Respectfully forwarded to his Exc’y Horatio Seymour Governor of the State of New York, with the recommendation that for the good of the service, and to promote the efficiency of the Engineer Brigade, the requests of Gen. Benham be granted.” Boldly signed at the conclusion by Grant. In very good to fine condition, with light show-through from mounting remnants to reverse. Included also is a nice 5 X 7 high quality reproduction photo of Grant at Cold Harbor in June 1864 (taken just a few months prior to signing this endorsement).

The requesting officer, Henry W. Benham, commanded the engineer brigade of the Army of the Potomac and was an expert in the construction of pontoon bridges. As he oversaw companies of New York engineers, his request to the state’s governor was presumably for increased manpower or supplies. During this period Benham and his men were very active in the Siege of Petersburg, where they were key participants in enabling Union troop movements via bridges. Ironically, the recipient of this letter would come to play a crucial role in Grant’s political career four years later as the Democratic presidential nominee in the 1868 presidential election.
