1885 Civil War General William S. Rosecrans Signed Card
Civil War General William S. Rosecrans fought mostly successful battles during the Civil War, seeing action at the Battle of Rich Mountain, Iuka, Carnifex Ferry, Second Battle of Corinth, and Stones River. He brilliantly defeated Confederate General Braxton Bragg in the Tullahoma Campaign, but was humiliatingly defeated during the Battle of Chickamauga due to a poorly-worded missive. Aside from his lengthy military career, Rosecrans was an inventor, a coal-oil company executive, a diplomat, and politician. He was briefly considered as Lincoln's Vice Presidential running mate, but was ultimately passed over for Andrew Johnson. Matted with a 19th c. Portrait engraving of Rosecrans to: 11" x 14". Mat window for autograph: 1" x 3". The mat has some residue/damage, verso of card has mounting residue. Autograph is in very good condition with a neat, bold signature.
