    William T. Sherman Cabinet Card Signed "W.T. Sherman General." 4.25" x 6.5", with a Brady, Washington, D.C. imprint on verso. An elegant Brady cabinet card of Sherman, seen seated in uniform with his arms crossed across his chest. Signed on the mount below the albumen. Sherman served under General Grant in Tennessee, aiding in the capture of Fort Donelson and the battle at Shiloh. Sherman was later given control of the Army of the Tennessee and led the successful Chattanooga Campaign. Despite his successes in the western theater, Sherman is most famous for his March to the Sea, ending in the capture of Savannah, Georgia. From the Bret J. Formichi American Civil War Rarities Collection.

    Condition: Light toning and soiling at the edges. Worn at the corners. Some spotting on some of the portrait, with a little bit near Sherman's eye. Sherman's signature has run up onto the bottom of the albumen. Minor soiling and a pencil notation on verso. Overall very good.

    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.
