    Description

    Fitz John Porter Autograph Letter Signed. Two pages, 7.75" x 10", New York, February 23, 1874. The Union general writes "B. Wells," who was "in charge of the Rebellion Records," confidentially asking for information that might help repair his military reputation (Porter was court-martialed and dismissed from the U.S. Army in 1863). Boldly written and signed. Complete separation along the central horizontal fold.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
