Lot 397: Hearty and comprehensive collection of 173 items, including a wide range of formats such as letters, documents, checks, and signatures from a variety of celebrated Civil War notables. This arrangement covers a wide realm of wartime individuals who, in one way or another, made a significant mark during one of the nation's earliest industrial wars. Signers include: Philip H. Sheridan, Nathaniel P. Banks, Oliver O. Howard, William Mahone, Andrew A. Humphreys, David D. Porter, Daniel Sickles, Salmon P. Chase, Howell Cobb, John Pope, George W. Schofield, Lawrence O'Bryan Branch, Absalom Baird, John Echols, John J. Peck, George H. Thomas, Edward A. Wild, James S. Wadsworth, Seth Williams, Hiram Burnham, Washington L. Elliott, William B.

Ruger, Edward D. Morgan, and French Forrest. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, scattered mild to moderate creasing, toning, and soiling, and collector's pencil notations to most items, some being copious, though they could be quite easily erased. The O. O. Howard letter has mirroring of ink due to premature folding, and the onionskin Salmon P. Chase letters have overall moderate toning and some ink erosion.Complete list of contents:William Mahone (x2) – Confederate; 1881; (2) StocksGeorge M. Robeson – Union; SPJames S.
