    Description

    FINE MCCLELLAN CIVIL WAR LETTERHEAD AND ENVELOPE. Although technically Civil War patriotic items, this envelope and letterhead are actively collected by campaign item enthusiasts, as McClellan was Lincoln’s opponent in the 1864 Presidential election. This is a nice letter written from a Michigan soldier early in 1862, referencing his expectation of soon marching for Manassass (and one of the War’s major battles). Postallyused envelopes are much scarcer and more valued by collectors than are unused ones, especially when accompanied by a letter with good war content.
