William W. Belknap Signature

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+


Union general and Secretary of War under Grant (1829-1890). Inadvertently, Belknap almost saved Custer from his fate at Little Bighorn, when Custer became embroiled in the scandal that resulted in Belknap's impeachment and Grant's censure of Custer. Choice ink signature, "Wm. W. Belknap,” on an off-white 4.5 x 2.75 card. In fine condition.
