You can go with me. P. H. Sheridan Maj Genl". Twelve days after writing this letter, in response to an order from Ulysses S. Grant, Sheridan sent a 10,000 man cavalry force under General Merritt to destroy the Virginia Central Railroad and the James River Canal. Sheridan's troops began marching east towards Petersburg. On March 2nd, he defeated Jubal Early at Waynesboro. Paper remnants on verso from prior mounting in an album. Clean overall with strong signature. Sold together with an Anthony marked CDV of Sheridan in his most famous pose (minor pin pricks at top extremity) and a CDV of an engraving of Sheridan (paper remnants at front top corners).
