Towards the end of the war, he was assigned to command the Department of the South and was present when Charleston and Fort Sumter fell into Federal hands. After the war, he resigned from the army and became a prominent civil engineer and author. From the Bret J. Formichi American Civil War Rarities Collection.

    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.
