Union General John G. Parke ALS


Autograph Letter Signed, in ink, 1 page. From Washington D.C., May 11th, 1890. Signed “John G. Parke, Colonel Retired Brvt. Major Genl.” Bold ink throughout with some blotting at the tip of “J” and “H” in his name. Otherwise fine with typical folds and light toning. Also included is an original engraving of the General. Would look really nice framed up together.
