One more civil war era signature that I could use some help with deciphering... Thanks!
Looking for some help to decipher a couple of civil war era signatures... Hoping someone from this group can help me! Thanks in advance! Tom
Can you post a photograph? By itself, Rosecrans isn't too valuable an autograph, as he doesn't have the best reputation and he lived quite a few years after the war. I would put the value between 1-200.
Quick question as Im not a member of this group, but what would the value be of an autographed color lithograph from 1864 autographed by General Rosecrans? Ive seen sales of him on a cdv but does the item being a color litho make it a higher value? -Nathan
That's a great find Matthew I almost had a Scott Hancock a few days ago but we couldn't agree on a price so gonna keep looking.Thanks for sharing
I picked this up also, it's signed by Winfield Scott Hancock. It says:
Winfd. S. HancockMajor Genl. U.S.V. reg.Comg. M[iddle].M[ilitary]. Department
I see. Thanks for the response. Very interesting history. Thanks for drawing my attention to it.
It is a quote that has been commonly paraphrased as: "Damn the Torpedoes. Full speed ahead." In reality Farragut said "Damn the torpedoes! Four bells. Captain Drayton, go ahead! Jouett, full speed!"
Very nice indeed, Matthew. Forgive my ignorance, but 24 days after which quote???
My latest addition, it's a good one! It's a note written by America's first full-Admiral David Glasgow Farragut. It was written in 1864, on Farragut's flagship the USS Hartford, in Mobile Bay, just 24 days after the famous quote. Also signed by officers on the Steamer Aphrodite and the USS Rodolph. The USS Rodolph would be blown up by a Confederate mine on April 1st, 1865, just days before the end of the war.
