Abner Doubleday Civil War Letter Re: Lieutenant Appointments




Civil War dated single page autograph letter signed on letterhead of "Office of Chief Artillery, Army of the Potomac". 5" x 8". Dated "December 20, 1861", and signed by Abner Doubleday as "A. Doubleday". In fine condition.

 

Union general (1819-1893) who commanded a division at Gettysburg; he has controversially been credited with the invention of baseball. Letter to his older brother, Colonel Thomas D. Doubleday, in full: "

General Barry informs me that your Regiment is entitled to one extra First Lieutenant and an extra Second Lieutenant to each company and also authorizes me to say that the Governor of New York can make the appointments, and the President will not interfere. If the Governor makes the appointments it will be all right. This question has arisen before and the above decision is the result of an interview with Gen'l Barry and the Head of the War Department. The decision is general for all similar cases."
