Description


Choice partly-printed vellum DS as president, one page, 14.25 x 19.5, February 5, 1865. President Lincoln appoints James H. Carleton as “Major in the Sixth Regiment of Cavalry in the service of the United States.” Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Lincoln and countersigned by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. The official blue seal affixed to the upper left remains fully intact. In fine condition, with intersecting folds (a horizontal fold passing just over the top of the signature), mild scattered wrinkling, and faint toning to the upper left. Carleton had distinguished himself in the American West and during this period was leading the Union’s ‘California Column’ during its advance across California, Arizona, New Mexico, and into Texas to drive Confederate forces out of the area. By the end of 1862 the rebel threat had subsided and Carleton and his troops—which included the famed ‘Kit’ Carson as the primary field commander—focused on defeating the Navajos. An absolutely fabulous Lincoln military appointment in context and condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
