    David Glasgow Farragut Autograph Letter Signed "D.G. Farragut, Admiral." The letter measures 5" x 7.5", one handwritten page, dated July 21. The content of the letter is standard. Accompanying the letter are two vintage engravings of Farragut in full uniform. Farragut was a southern born man who married a southern woman, however, when Virginia seceded from the Union in 1861, Farragut said he would "stick to the flag." He left the South and moved north where he took command of an expedition to capture New Orleans. He was successful and became a hero in the North. He was awarded the rank of Admiral in 1865.

    The letter is in fine condition; the writing is fading slightly, but the signature is legible and clear. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
