Philip Kearney, Rare Civil War Dated Letter A rare Civil War autograph note signed, "P. Kearney Br. Genl. Comdg. 3d. Division 3d. Corps," 3.3" x 4.5", [n.p., n.d. but c. April-June, 1862] to New York Governor Edwin D. Morgan, endorsing a recommendation to promote Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas W. Egan. Kearney writes in full, "To his Excy. Governor Morgan of N. York Respy. forwarded & approved - Lt. Col. Egan merits this advancement by his gallant & efficient services." Egan received his promotion as Colonel on June 5, 1862. Kearney would not have much time to personally benefit from Egan's services as he would be killed at Chantilly, Virginia on September 1, 1862. Very light foxing, otherwise bright and boldly penned. Simply and tastefully matted with a portrait of the slain general. A true rarity. From the collection of Bradley O'Leary. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
