William T. Sherman Clipped Signature
3/3/2011 - ONLINE American History Timed Auction
William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891). Clipped signature W.T. Sherman/General in black ink, 1.5" x 3.25", matted and framed with a 4.5" x 6.5" photograph of an older Sherman including his facsimile signature, 12" x 16.5" overall.

Sherman is enshrined as one of the America's premier masters of warfare, Southern controversy notwithstanding. Sherman's strategic grasp -- inflicting total war -- was paramount in winning the Civil War. Following the war, he rose to command the United States Army in 1869 and was instrumental in creating the Command School at Ft. Leavenworth. The general retired in 1884 as his own request, declined pressure to run for President, and died in New York City in February 1891.


Condition:  
Smudging of the "T" and minor fingerprint soiling, else very good. Professionally framed; a nice presentation.
