Officer’s commission for the highly respected and battle-tested Myles Moylan, a future Medal of Honor recipient with the 7th Cavalry

Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 14 x 18, February 24, 1863. President Lincoln appoints Myles Moylan “a Second Lieutenant in the Fifth Regiment of Cavalry in the service of the United States.” Signed at the conclusion by Lincoln and countersigned by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. Document is affixed by its top edge to a 15.5 x 11.5 off-white sheet. In fine condition, with intersecting folds, with a horizontal fold touching bottom of Lincoln’s signature, some scattered light toning and soiling, and a couple of trivial spots. The green seal is worn, but intact. Moylan enlisted in 1857 with the 2nd US Dragoons, and commanded a company during the battles of Shiloh and Corinth, with his company also serving as an escort for General Grant. After his promotion, he assumed command of Company D, which fought with distinction at Brandy Station, Gettysburg, Manassas Gap, and Front Royal. After the war, he would serve with General George Custer in the 7th Cavalry, and receive the Medal of Honor for his gallantry in action at Bear Paw Mountain, Montana, on September 30, 1877, against Nez Perce Indians. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
