About this Item: Known as "Buck," the second son of General and President U.S. Grant also rose through the ranks to became a general in the U.S. Army, but he made his mark as an attorney; the Grant & Ward brokerage firm he founded with a partner lost all his and his father's money, but he became wealthy in California real estate. Bold signature in black ink, clipped 3¼" X 1", n.p., n.y. Very good. Grant signs boldly on a printed line, below which is the printed word "Secretary" -- likely clipped from a financial document.

About this Item: President Grant's namesake grandson, child of his eldest son Frederick; ironically, he too was a West Point graduate and rose through the ranks until he achieved major general; also ironically, just as his grandfather died shortly after completing his "Memoirs" and never saw the finished product, so too did Grant 3rd die shortly after completing a biography of his grandfather. Signed Program, 4pp, 4 3/4" X 6¼", Chicago, IL, 1959 May 20. Near fine. Printed program (blue ink on grey stock) for the Civil War Round Table -- their "181st Regular Meeting" with front wrapper noting "Maj. Gen. U.S. Grant III, U.S.A., Ret'd." and Karl S. Betts (executive director of The Civil War Centennial Commission) as the evening's speakers. Grant signs boldly in blue fountain pen across the top of the front wrapper. Inside text pages (age toned from long-ago newsprint contact) introduces their topic -- "A Centennial for All Americans" -- and gives a mini-biography of each. Rear wrapper lists the organization's officers, etc. Interesting, unusual item. Seller Inventory # 33212

About this Item: Washington, D.C.: War Department, 2 May 1863. 12mo. Handbill. Very good. Four-punched at left margin, not affecting text else clean and handsome. Printed general order, signed IN TYPE "By Command of Lieutenant General Grant," and also in type by E.D. Townsend, Assistant Adjutant General. Titled "Issue of Shelter Tents," this order appears to be an attempt to enforce a certain uniformity in the housing of Union troops in the field. Citing an earlier General Order "providing for the issue of shelter tents, instead of common, wall or Sibley Tents," this order states that "When troops refuse to accept shelter tents, they will not be furnished with any. Troops in garrisons, at stations, or in detachments, can construct huts, if they prefer them to shelter tents." (Shelter tents are simple inverted V-shape canvas shelters without ends or a floor, Sibley tents are a 12' tall by 18' wide teepee-type canvas tent, and wall tents are Sibley tents with the circular side pulled horizontal at 4', creating more usable floor space.).

DS, 1p, 7 3/4" X 3", Washington, DC, 1906 May 15. Check on pale pink stock drawn on The Riggs National Bank, with handsome engraving of that institution at left. Made out to "Adjutant, 2d Batt. Engrs" in the amount of $26.31 in one hand and then signed by Max C. Tyler (1880-1974, West Point 1903 graduate, worked his way up to major general with the Corps of Engineers). Near fine. Usual cancellation marks. On the verso, Grant boldly pens in brown ink "Pay to order of / Julian L. Schley / U.S. Grant 3rd." Below this, Schley pens: "1st Lieut. Eng'rs and / Adjutant 2d Batt. / Julian L. Schley." (Schley, 1880-1965, a fellow 1903 West Point graduate and Corps of Engineer career officer, was appointed Governor of the Panama Canal Zone in 1932, serving until 1941.) And lastly, below this the check is also boldly endorsed by Mark Brooke (1903 West Point graduate, second lieutenant with the Corps of Engineers, in 1904 assigned to take transfer and begin construction of the Panama Canal for the U.S. Government). Though "Band Mess" is inked at lower left of this check by the secretary who filled in the recipient and amount, its purpose and the reason for three endorsements is not clear. Intriguing and attractive item from quite early in Grant's career, in any case. Seller Inventory # 33215

About this Item: Southern Illinois University Press, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Third Edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In his eighth and final annual message to Congress, Ulysses S. Grant reminded the nation that it was his fortune or misfortune, to be called to the office of Chief Executive without any previous political training? The electoral crisis that dominated Grant s last months in office left little room for political error. On November 7, 1876, Democrat Samuel J. Tilden won the popular vote, but Republican Rutherford B. Hayes would claim the presidency by a single electoral vote if he captured all disputed electors from Florida, Louisiana South Carolina, and Oregon. Uncertainty gave way to deadlock as the crisis deepened. Grant s mail included a steady trickle of anonymous threats. In late January 1877, Grant signed a bill creating an electoral commission to end the dispute. Hayes won all disputed electors and succeeded Grant without incident. Out of the White House, without a settled home, the Grants spent two months visiting family and friends before embarking on their long-planned European tour. On May 17, Grant left Philadelphia aboard the steamer Indiana. When he arrived at Liverpool, crowds thronged the docks and streets to give him a hero s welcome, and Londoners welcomed Grant with similar enthusiasm. In July, the Grants crossed to Belgium, traveled through Germany, and summered in the Swiss Alps and the lakes of northern Italy. Back in Great Britain, they toured Scotland and northern England, then visited daughter Ellen Grant Sartoris at Warsash, the Sartoris country home near Southampton. Grant spent November in Paris, later writing no American would stay in Paris if he found himself the only one of his countrymen there. The Grants wintered in the Mediterranean, sailing down the Italian coast to Sicily, where they spent Christmas, then to Alexandria, and a long trip up the Nile. The party toured the Holy Land, visited Constantinople and Athens, and spent a month in Italy. After another month in Paris, the Grants were off to Holland, Germany, Scandinavia, Russia, Austria, and Switzerland, exploring the Alps again before returning to Paris in September, 1878, to ponder their next move. Abroad and out of office, Grant freely talked about the war and his presidency. Several interviews stirred controversy in America and stoked talk of a third term in 1880, despite Grant s own protestation: I never wanted to get out of a place as much as I did to get out of the Presidency. The Grants had seen Europe. Now they faced a choice between home and a journey to distant Asia. Seller Inventory # BTE9780809326327

About this Item: Southern Illinois University Press, United States, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Ulysses S. Grant faced numerous political challenges during 1874. In the south, the Republican party steadily receded from power. As the year opened, Grant conceded Texas to the Democrats, counseling the recently defeated Republican governor to yield to the verdict of the people as expressed by their ballots. Throughout the spring, Grant monitored an explosive situation in Arkansas, where rival governors set up contending governments. And in Louisiana, the emergence of the White League led to a pitched battle on the streets of New Orleans. All over the south, what Grant called atrocities led blacks to petition him, as did a group in Louisiana: Give us peace or give a Territory to ourselves Mr. President. The nation also reeled from the aftermath of a financial panic. A bill generally considered inflationary passed Congress in April. Indecisive, Grant prepared two messages on the bill. In the first, never sent, he gave grudging approval. His ringing veto sent Congress back to work: I am not a believer in any artificial method of making paper money equal to coin when the coin is not owned or held ready to redeem the promises to pay. In June, Grant signed a compromise bill that eased inflation fears. Appointments continued to cause turmoil. He selected the largely unknown Ohio lawyer Morrison R. Waite for chief justice after a revelation from Caleb Cushing s past undermined his first nomination. Unable to persuade Elihu B. Washburne to replace an overwhelmed William A. Richardson as secretary of the treasury, Grant nominated another second choice, Benjamin H. Bristow. A frequently slighted Secretary of State Hamilton Fish stayed in the cabinet only after Grant s special pleading. Despite these difficulties, many discussed a third term for Grant, who remained discreetly silent on the issue. In October, Grant made his first visit to Indian Territory, where he saw on every side evidence of prosperity. As he toured, troops completed a four-month campaign against Comanche, Kiowa, and Cheyenne raiders on the southern plains. Further north, Lieutenant Colonel George A. Custer led a party to survey the Black Hills, sacred to the Sioux. Ostensibly scouting sites for military posts, the expedition discovered gold, and the arrival of prospectors by year s end threatened peace in that region. Family and friends had always eased Grant s burdens, but in 1874 the White House seemed a gloomier place after daughter Ellen (Nellie) married in May and left for a new life with her husband in England. Less distressing was the October wedding of eldest son Frederick, who married into an American family. The year closed with Grant quite conscious of public and private uncertainties looming in his future. Seller Inventory # BTE9780809324989

About this Item: Southern Illinois University Press, Carbondale, 1967. Hardcover. Edited by John Y. Simon. Volumes 1 through 6. Small 4to. Red cloth, price-clipped dust jackets. xxxix, 458pp; xxxiii, 399pp; xxv, 479pp; xxv, 520pp; xxv, 458pp; xxiv, 492pp. Frontispieces, illustrations, maps. Fine/near fine overall. Slightest occasional jacket edgewear. The first half dozen volumes -- all tight, handsome, exceptional, covering the period from 1837 until December 8, 1862 -- of the famed scholarly project that's still in process today. Includes a choice autograph addition: Tipped to an inner flyleaf of the first volume is a Typed Letter Signed from Simon to noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93), 1p, 8½" X 11", 1966 August 24. Near fine. Two faint original horizontal folds. On the eve of the publication of the first volume, writing on letterhead of "The Ulysses S. Grant Association," the ever-helpful Simon helps Gates with a research question. In part: "I have checked all our Grant indexes without finding anything from Andrew C. Todd. It may well be, however, that, while we do not have anything currently written either by Todd to Grant or Grant to Todd, we may turn up something later. It may also be that he is mentioned in correspondence not indexed under his name." Signed simply "John" in blue ballpoint. Gates commented on Simon's herculean editing task years later in a "Civil War Times Illustrated" book review (September 1982), thusly: "If anyone deserved a Pulitzer award for a task of historical scholarship, it has to be Dr. John Y. Simon. laboring on this significant and monumental contribution." DORNBUSCH IV, 1536. Seller Inventory # 33699

HALLECK for sending to GENERAL GEORGE MCCLELLAN and MENTIONING GENERAL GRANT, dated February 16, 186_ on the recto and dated February 16 1862 in another hand on the verso. The telegraph is written entirely in Halleck's hand (in pencil), shows that it was sent from St. Louis, and states: ["To] G B McLellan Washin Every Thing looks well, Grant says we can keep them in till mortar boats arrive.

Halleck wrote and sent the Telegraph shortly before he was recalled to Washington to serve as President Lincoln's General-in-Chief.

The entire piece measures 13.25 inches by 18 inches. Ulysses S. Grant served as president of the United States from March 4, 1869 to March 4, 1877. On January 29, 1877, (five days before he left office), Grant gave an address to the Senate of the United States regarding a controversial dispute that had arisen over the results of the upcoming presidential election. In the address, Grant argued that the people must put their trust in Congress, stating: "In all periods of history controversies have arisen as to the succession or choice of the chiefs of states, and no party or citizens loving their country and its free institutions can sacrifice too much of mere feeling in preserving through the upright course of law their country from the smallest danger to its peace on such an occasion; and it can not be impressed too firmly in the hearts of all the people that true liberty and real progress can exist only through a cheerful adherence to constitutional law.".

About this Item: Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. as President of the United States, Washington, April 6, 1876; directing the Secretary of State [Hamilton Fish] to affix the Seal of the United States to "a warrant for the pardon of John R. Bolton" 4to, 1 page (engraved, with secretarial additions). The case of John R.

About this Item: Michael J. Cramer, husband of Grant's sister, had a long and illustrious diplomatic careerMary Frances Grant was the youngest child of Jesse Grant and Hannah Simpson. Born in 1839, she was 17 years younger than her brother, Ulysses S. Grant. In October 1863 she married Michael J. Cramer of Cincinnati. Cramer was an ambitious young man, and he earned his way through college by teaching German and Latin and working part time as a printer. He studied for the ministry and graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1860. Cramer joined the Methodist conference and preached for four years. On July 10, 1864, Abraham Lincoln appointed him Hospital Chaplain, in which post he ministered to sick, wounded and dying soldiers. Cramer stayed in the service until 1867, when President Andrew Johnson named him U.S. Consul at Leipzig, Germany. In addition to his official duties there, he organized a chapel service and preached every Sunday. In 1870, Cramer was appointed U.S. Ambassador to Denmark by his brother-in-law President Grant, and he resided in Copenhagen for eleven years in this capacity. Document Signed as President, on vellum, Washington, September 9, 1870, naming Cramer Minister Resident to Denmark. The document is countersigned by Secretary of State Hamilton Fish. Before the word "ambassador" came in to common use, this was an ambassadorial-level engagement. In 1881 President James Garfield appointed Cramer U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland, and this post was confirmed by Chester A. Arthur when he became President after Garfield's assassination. Cramer returned to America in 1885, the day after the death of General Grant. Cramer was afterwards professor of theology at Boston University, professor of church history at Drew Theological Seminary, and professor of philosophy at Dickinson College. He died in 1898. As for Mary Grant Cramer, when she died in 1905, The New York Times noted in her obituary that "she was well known in religious and charitable circles.". Seller Inventory # 10160

About this Item: Washington, 1867. unbound. 1 page on "War Department" letterhead, 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Washington, November 6, 1867 -- an uncommon partly printed document signed "U.S. Grant" as ad interim Secretary of War, a post he held for only eight weeks, informing Thomas J. Greggs: "You are hereby notified that the President of the United States has appointed you, for gallant and meritorious services during the war, a Captain by Brevet. Should the Senate at their next session, advise and consent thereto, you will be commissioned accordingly." Beautifully framed to 15.5 x 17.5 inches with a 4.5 x 3.75-inch copperplate portrait, along with a tan matte and black-and-gold frame. The letter has horizontal folds and a small smudge in the left margin; overall a magnificent item in near fine condition. At the time that this document was signed, President Andrew Johnson was undergoing Impeachment proceedings. A week earlier he compounded his problems by firing Secretary of War Stanton and convincing Grant to fill the Cabinet position. Two months later both houses of Congress determined that it was illegal to fire Stanton and that he should be reinstated immediately. Grant, rather than to get caught up with the political controversy, walked away from President Johnson - both men refusing to speak to one another for the rest of their lives.

About this Item: Condition: Very Good. AUTOGRAPH LETTER BY GRANT MENTIONING HIS PLANS FOR HIS FIRST VISIT TO GETTYSBURG. Although Gettysburg, Pennsylvania towers over the Civil War in importance, by 1867 - a full two years after the war ended - General Grant, the Commanding General of the Union Forces, had never visited the site of the bloodiest battle of the war. (During the Battle of Gettysburg, Grant, then commander of the Army of the Tennessee, was in the midst of conducting his historic siege of Vicksburg.) Grant was, of course, eager to see the historic grounds, but other obligations always prevented him from doing so. In this letter, Grant writes to his good friend George W. Childs, the publisher of the Philadelphia Public Ledger, turning down an invitation to a dinner on June 20, 1867, celebrating the dedication of the Ledger's new headquarters, noting that he will be at Gettysburg on that day. The letter, dated June 18, 1867, and written on "Head-Quarters Armies of the United States" stationery, reads in full: "I regret that an engagement to be at Gettysburg, Pa. the very day for which I am indebted to you for a most cordial invitation to dine with you in Philadelphia will prevent my acceptance. With great respect?" [Signed] U.S. Grant / General Grant would indeed arrive at Gettysburg on June 20, touring the battlefield the following morning with Major-General Samuel W. Crawford, Major-General John White Geary, and Brigadier-General Porter. The recipient, Childs, was close to Grant, owning an adjacent seaside cottage to the Grant's. In 1864, he purchased the failing Philadelphia Public Ledger, turning it into one of the leading journals in the country. The new building for the headquarters referred to in Childs's invitation was hailed by the New York Times as "the finest newspaper office in the country." WITH: Accompanying letter (on the same stationery) to Childs by Grant's aide-de-camp, Horace Porter. Porter served the Union with great distinction in the war, becoming an important member of Grant's staff and rising to the rank of brevet brigadier general. In his letter he offers apologies for Grant's delayed response and offering regrets at his inability to attend. Octavo, one page. Washington, D.C.: June 18, 1867. On "Head-Quarters Armies of the United States" stationery. Published in full in The Public Ledger Building, Philadelphia: with an Account of the Proceedings Connected with its Opening June 20, 1867. Framed together with Porter's letter and an engraving of Grant from the first edition of his Memoirs. The text of Porter's letter: "An absence from the city has prevented me from answering your letter of the 11th sooner. The General was very glad to have an opportunity of writing you the enclosed letter, which I hope will be satisfactory. Had there been a little better management on the part of the Committee, at Gettysburg, he could have visited that place and been present at your dinner also. I feel greatly obliged to you for the information communicated in your letter, and appreciate very highly the interest you take in my Chief I assure you. Hoping you will not hesitate to command me if I can be of any service to you in Washington. I am very truly yours?". Seller Inventory # 2072

About this Item: 1873. No Binding. Condition: Fine. Archive of material relating to diplomat Henry C. Hall (circa 1820-1901), the U.S. Consul at Matanzas (1864-73), U.S. Consul General at Havana (1873-77), and U.S. Minister at Costa Rica, Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua (1882-89). Highlights --------- 1). Document measuring 14 x 20 inches, with State Department raised seal, appointing Hall as the temporary U.S. Vice-Consul at Havana; dated March 1869; signed by Secretary of State William H. Seward. 2). Document measuring 15 x 20 inches, with Executive Department raised seal, appointing Hall as the U.S. Consul General at Havana; dated November 7, 1873; signed by President Ulysses S. Grant and Secretary of State Hamilton Fish. 3). Document measuring 12 x 24 inches (both sides), with state Department raised seal, appointing Hall as U.S. Minister to the "Central American States"; dated May 9, 1882; signed by Secretary of State Frederick T. Frelinghuysen. 4). Document measuring 14 x 22 inches, testimonial acknowledging Hall's efforts at defusing the "recent political crisis" in Guatemala through his "wise and beneficent counsels," thereby sparing "us from anarchy and bloodshed, which the whole Republic so very narrowly escaped"; dated April 18, 1885; signed by 70 leading Guatemalans -------- President Grant conferred upon Hall the position of Consul General at Havana on November 7, 1873, the day that Spanish authorities in Cuba shocked Americans by executing 53 crew and passengers of the "Virginius," a vessel caught off the island trying to supply insurgents while falsely flying the U.S. flag. Grant, Secretary Fish, and Hall spent a difficult month balancing public demands for retribution with the knowledge that the "Virginius" had limited grounds for legal protection. Before passions cooled, most Washington lawmakers had shied away from action, causing Grant to quip "if Spain were to send a fleet into the harbor of New York, and bombard the city, the Senate might pass a resolution of regret that they had had cause for so doing, and offer to pay them for the expense of coming over and doing it." A remarkable archive with historical significance. Shipping extra. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # ABE-4749506087

About this Item: To Ratify a War Claims Treaty With Great BritainWhen Ulysses S. Grant assumed the presidency in March 1869, relationsbetween Great Britain and the United States were at a low ebb. From theAmerican point of view, the foremost reason for the breach was the constructionand refitting of Confederate warships by British shipbuilders during theCivil War. American politicians argued that such behavior violated BritainÕsofficial neutrality, and demanded that the British government make financialrestitution--these were collectively known as the Alabama claims, afterthe most successful of the Confederate ships. Negotiations between Britainand the United States to resolve these disputes began during the presidentialadministration of Andrew Johnson. After GrantÕs election in November1868, the president-elect informed JohnsonÕs secretary of state, William H.Seward, that he wanted to be consulted during the ongoing talks. Seward,however, ignored Grant and reached a settlement with Britain, known as theJohnson-Clarendon Convention, which only provided financial restitutionto private American citizens for specific damages, and did not cover generalharm caused by the British-built Confederate warships against the Unionmilitary. Grant opposed the unpopular treaty for this reason.A month after his inauguration, the treaty was ready to be submitted tothe Senate for ratification. The Senate was not, however, in session, so heordered it to convene in a special session. Document Signed as President,Washington, April 8, 1869, ÒTo the Senators of the United States respectively,Ócalling the Senate into official session. ÒObjects interesting to the United States requiringthat the Senate should be in session on the 12th instant, to receive and actupon such communications as may be made to it on the part of the Executive, yourattendance in the Senate Chamber in this City, on that day, at 12 oÕclock noon, isaccordingly requested.Ó There were then 62 U.S. Senators and likely each wassent a copy. This one was received by Senator John Scott of Pennsylvania.A search of auction records for the past 35 years discloses no other copieshaving reached the marketplace, nor do we recall ever having seen anotherone. In fact, this is our first Grant document of any kind calling the Senateinto session.The Special Senate Session lasted from April 12-22, 1869, and the proposedtreaty was denounced in the debate. Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts,chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, insisted on thefloor that the British government owed American taxpayers $2 billion indamages, and recommended the down payment be BritainÕs cession of Canadato the United States. In the end, the Senate agreed with President Grantand rejected the treaty overwhelmingly, 54-1. It would be a few years morebefore this issue could be resolved in a form satisfactory to both sides.
