Description

Ulysses S. Grant Signature, as President, on card; with date and notation in the hand of the recipient.

U.S. Grant/ Given me at White House Washington D.C. 1876. J. B. Hook (?)–the name appears to be Hook, but could be something else.

June 28, 1876 was only a couple of days after General George A. Custer and 265 men of the Seventh Cavalry were killed in a battle with Sitting Bull’s Sioux Indians at Little Bighorn. President Grant, who never had been fond of Custer, referred to the battle as “wholly unnecessary.”

Minor edge toning, what appears to be a fingerprint at upper right.

Grant, Ulysses.  A Large and Bold Signature as President on A Card.  Dated by the recipient in Washington, “June 1876”.  Card size 3 3/8″ x 2″, overall 11 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ Matted, ready for framing, with a digital image of Grant taken from the original glass negative.
