    Henry Algernon du Pont Wilmington & Northern Railroad Autographed Stock Henry Algernon du Pont (1838-1926), Civil War Army officer, U.S. Senator, industrialist and partner in E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co. He graduated from West Point at the head of his class in 1861. In command of artillery, he served most commendably in many battles. He received the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1864 and received the Congressional Medal of Honor for distinguished services and gallantry at Cedar Creek. He later became a member of E. I. Du Pont. Later he became president of the Wilmington and Northern Railroad. Great 1895 stock of this railroad signed by du Pont as president. Slight signs of faded red manuscript cancellation and hole cancelled as normally found. Very fine condition. Includes biographical information. Scarce and so very popular due to his Civil War connection. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
