    Three Signatures of Union Brigadier General Galusha Pennypacker, each written "G Pennypacker" on imprinted 97th Pennsylvania Volunteers postal covers from Port Royal, South Carolina, 1863, to Levi Kirk, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Fine condition overall. The amazing Pennypacker was born in 1844 and enjoys the distinction of being the Civil War's youngest general, having achieved brigadier rank before his 21st birthday! No mere pencil-pusher or political appointee, Pennypacker received the Congressional Medal of Honor for gallantry during the assault on Fort Fisher, North Carolina in January, 1865.
