Hello Nathan,

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

I picked this up also, it's signed by Winfield Scott Hancock. It says:

Winfd. S. Hancock
Major 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???

Comment by Matt abcde on May 26, 2014 at 5:10pm

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.

Thank Roger, for my collection it doesn't get much better than that Upton ALS. I've been collecting for about 2 years, I was interested before but, I was put off by the costs. Now I have a little more money from time to time so I get what I can, when I can. I also collect WWII autographs and I have several hundred I obtained, either personally or sometimes second-hand. Lastly I collect Japanese Flags that were brought home from the Pacific in WWII.
