Union Major General James Birdseye McPherson War-Date Signed

mcpherson1mcpherson2PRICE…SOLD

Killed in Action Civil War Union Major General James Birdseye McPherson War-Date Signed. General McPherson was one of the more popular Generals to serve for the Union. His quick rise in rank was a testament to the trust commanders had in him. He was killed on July 22, 1864 during the Battle of Atlanta while fighting former classmate John Bell Hood’s Confederate forces. Included in this lot are:

– LARGE Scarce War-date signature on thin album paper, mostly likely taken from an war time autograph album. This cut measures approximately 5″ x 2 1/2″ and reads:”Yours Truly / Js. B. McPherson / Maj. Genl”. This is the one of the larger signatures of McPherson I have come across and the ink is still strong for its age.

– 4” x 6” reproduction color photograph of General McPherson. Would look great framed with the cut signature.
