General Ellis Spear Autograph

2 spearellis spear

PRICE…SOLD


Featured here is a very nice cut autograph of 20th Maine hero Ellis Spear. Ink signature, “Ellis Spear,” on an off-white 4.25 x .5 slip clipped from a document. In very fine condition. He was Union general (1834–1917) who participated in the battles of Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Petersburg and others. During Gettysburg he was a Captain in the 20th Maine and played a vital role repulsing Confederate forces at Little Round Top as he took the role of acting Major in command of the historic extreme left of the 20th Maine line on Little Round Top.  He also witnessed the surrender of Lee and Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. This is only one of a scant few autographs of his that I have ever seen. This would look great framed up with a photo of the General. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this autograph.
