About this Item

This German-born Union general was a man of vast accomplishments: U.S. minister to Spain, senator from Missouri, secretary of the interior, editor of the "New York Evening Post" and more. Bold strong signature (typical "C. Schurz"), 2½" X 1¼" slip, n.p. Very good. Mild age toning, with paper clip rust mark at upper left touching upon the "C." An appealing war-date example of this extraordinary figure's signature, with "Maj Genl." penned beneath it and another rather illegible line b[penned beneath that (may read "Dec. 23d 1863"). Schurz was raised to the rank of major general in March 1863, which would make this possible 1863 date logical. Accompanied by an outstanding 1860s vintage steel-engraved group portrait entitled "Defenders of the Union" along the bottom, heavy stock 6" X 9", n.p., n.y. Twelve superb individual portraits, each within its own oval decorative frame, with Rosecrans at upper center and Sigel, Weitzel, Meagher and other Union generals surrounding him -- Schurz at upper right. Near fine. Quite handsome. War-date Schurz are encountered far less often that post-war examples. Bookseller Inventory # 37200
