About this Item

[Northville, Mi. 1876]. [4]pp., printed on a folded sheet. Engraved portrait of Kilpatrick on the first page. Old folds, with a few old tape repairs along the vertical fold, and the lower horizontal fold. Good. This leaflet advertises an address by Civil War General Judson Kilpatrick, who spoke on January 27, 1876 at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Northville, Michigan. Kilpatrick, an 1861 graduate of West Point, was the first Union Army officer wounded during the Civil War, at the Battle of Big Bethel, on June 10. He commanded Union forces at Second Bull Run, Gettysburg, and Sherman's March, and was also a primary actor in the events surrounding the disastrous Dahlgren Expedition. Notorious for his reckless disregard for the safety of his own troops, he was known as "Kil-cavalry," was detested by Confederates for his destruction of infrastructure, and was briefly jailed twice on charges of personal misconduct. Kilpatrick lectured extensively on his Civil War experiences in the 1870s, giving talks on "Incidents and Battle Scenes of the Rebellion" (the present address), "The Irish Soldier in the War of the Rebellion," and "Sherman's March to the Sea." The front page bears a portrait of Kilpatrick, while the two inner pages contain endorsements of his talks from newspapers and prominent citizens, including President Grant, W.T. Sherman, and Charles Sumner. The final page contains advertisements for Northville, Michigan, businesses. An interesting artifact from the later life of a notorious Union General, and of popular interest in hearing firsthand accounts of the Civil War. Rare, with no copies recorded in OCLC.
