    General George W. Morgan Signature with Civil War-Period Carte de Visite. Two items, as follows: (1) A clear ink signature "I am Major, Very respectfully/ Your obedient servt/ George W. Morgan/ Brig Genl Comdg" on a 5.75" x 2.25" paper slip. (2) A nearly full-length standing portrait in uniform with backmark of E. & H. T. Anthony (New York). Morgan, having served in the Texas Revolution and the Mexican-American war, was appointed a brigadier general in November 1861 commanding the 7th Division of the Army of Ohio. After a disagreement with General Sherman, and his own failing health, he resigned his commission in June 1863. He returned to Ohio, the state he later represented in the U.S. Congress for three terms. Both excellent.
