About this Item

This U.S. Army officer wielded great influence while in charge of the Record and Pension Division of the Surgeon General's Office in the 1880s, stremalining and modernizing it, and later (1892-1904) as chief of the Record and Pension Office of the War Department; in 1899 he was promoted to brigadier general and in 1904 to major general; publication of the mammoth 100+ volume "The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, 1880-1901" (better known as the "O.R.") was his responsibility. Partly-printed DS, 1p, 10" X 8", Washington, DC, 1896 July 9. Very good. Mild bit of edgewear. Rather cryptic and bureaucratic Record and Pension Office form enquiring about the whereabouts of one William E. Few of Company "K" of the 8th New York Volunteer Cavalry in the spring of 1865, followed by a finding that Few enrolled on 23 March 1865 and on 30 April 1865 was in Bladensburg, Maryland and finally on 6 June 1865 was in Alexandria, Virginia. Signed at the conclusion boldly by Ainsworth in black ink as chief of office of the U.S. Army. Bookseller Inventory # 31384
