Description

William S. Rosecrans signs a pamphlet related to Chickamauga.

Major General William Starke Rosecrans was the hero of Iuka, Corinth, Stones River and Tullahoma, but lost his reputation after the defeat at Chickamauga, September, 1863.

He here inscribes a pamphlet on Chickamauga to J. H. Macalpine. Rosecrans led a brilliant campaign leading up to Chickamauga, but the disaster there effectively ended his military career. Henry V. Boynton held the Medal of Honor for Missionary Ridge, and was the most significant figure in the establishment of the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.

Title and back page with handling and dust soil, slt. stains; staples rusted; inscription dark and clear.

Rosecrans, William S. (Maj. Genl., U.S.V./Brig. Gen., U.S.A.; Col. 23rd Ohio) Autograph Inscription, signed (“J.H. Macalpine / with the comps / of / W.S. Rosecrans / Bvt Maj Genl U.S.A.”), penned near top right corner on title page/cover of the pamphlet CHATTANOOGA AND CHICKAMAUGA…GEN. H.V. BOYNTON’S LETTERS TO THE CINCINNATI COMMERCIAL GAZETTE…Washington, D.C. (1891). 8vo., 54p., maps; stapled together with THE REAL CHICKAMAUGA, a pamphlet reprint of articles by W.S. Furay and Col.
