    Description

    Historic Ulysses S. Grant Autograph Letter Signed "U. S. Grant/ Maj. Gen." from Nashville, Dated February 28, 1864. This important ALS order reads, "To Brig Gen. R. Allen, Louisville, Ky. It will be impossible to supply the number of Artillery & Cavalry horses called for within this Military Division, but I would suggest that now all on hand be forwarded as rapidly as possible to this places and others be procured as fast as they can be purchased. I will order their distribution from here." Exemplifies Grant's aggressive "hands on" style of command for which he was noted, and issued just nine days before he would be promoted to lieutenant general, the highest rank in the US Army. Pristine condition, bright and crisp, some pencil notations at the bottom, significance unknown. An historically interesting and eminently displayable Grant document.
