Description



Old Snapping Turtle's distinguished Civil War career reached its apex at the Battle of Gettysburg, where his Army of the Potomac forced the retreat of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. A few years later, Meade became governor of the Reconstruction Third Military District (Atlanta, GA), from which this two-page recommendation letter originates. "He is a gentleman with whose acquaintance I am sure you will be pleased & I take great pleasure in recommending him to your good offices," writes Meade. Measures 5x8 and rates EX with an "8"-strength signature. Full LOA from JSA.
