    Description

    Ulysses S. Grant Endorsement Signed "U. S. Grant" as commanding general of the U. S. Army. Two integral pages, 8" x 9.75". Grant's signature is viewed on the verso of a letter from Brevet Major General Charles Craft to Colonel J. C. Kelton regarding the application for the promotion of Captain John A. Wright in which he requests the promotion of Wright to Major. Grant places his signature below an endorsement reading: "I would recommend that Capt. Wright be brevetted [sic] a Major of Volunteers." The original letter happens to bear the date April 14, 1865, the date of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Grant's characteristic signature is bold and bright, despite some scattered toning.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
