We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Autograph Letter Signed.

Description:

The brothers Murray were New York bankers and politicians -- older brother William served in Congress as a Democrat (1851-55) before switching allegiance and helping to organize the Republican party in 1856, while younger brother Ambrose served Congress as a Republican from 1855 to 1859. ALS, 1p (lettersheet), 8" X 10", Goshen, NY, 1863 September 26. Addressed to William H. Seward, Secretary of State. Near fine. Strong folds (none weakened). William Murray boldly pens in brown ink this missive: "Capt. Henry S Murray of the 124th Regt. Y.Y. Vols. now at Parole Camp, Annapolis, Md., wishes to obtain leave of absence for a short time to visit his home in Goshen. He was severely wounded at Chancellorsville Va. and was paroled on the 4th May last and has not yet been exchanged. If you can consistently, use your influence with the Hon: Secretary of War, in procuring him a furlough, you will greatly oblige us and add another to the many favors received from you." Signed at the close by all three. The parole camp at Annapolis was infamous for its poor conditions, and Confederates released captured, wounded soldiers to this Union site on the condition they not return to combat roles until exchanged for Confederate POWs. Henry S. Murray (1841-74) was indeed captain of Company B of this well-known regiment, nicknamed the "Orange Blossoms," which saw action from Manassas through Lee's surrender at Appomattox; he rose to the rank of major. Presumably either William or Ambrose was Henry's father and the other his uncle, but which we do not know -- and Grier's relationship too is unclear. Intriguing, though -- Congressmen brothers requesting special treatment for a son/nephew -- and worth further research. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1898 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
