JOHN T. MORGAN
John T. Morgan writes to President Abraham Lincoln hoping to persuade him to sign a bill regarding the Indian Territory in modern day Oklahoma. Signed twice.
Autograph letter double signed: "Jno T. Morgan", 1p, 5½x9. He also signs again on the verso, "Jno T. Morgan". No place, no date. To "Mr. President" In full: "If the Indian's current bill (for the Indian Territory) should reach you in time, may I ask that you will consider it, it is thoroughly well preferred and in [illegible]. I wish that it could have gone further, but they will be the crowning act of your Indians nicety." Morgan (1824-1907) was commissioned a Colonel in 1862 and raised the 51st Alabama Cavalry. Appointed Brigadier General in 1863, he was assigned to a brigade in Virginia but resigned to return to his regiment after its Colonel had been killed in battle. He was then appointed Brigadier General and assigned to an Alabama brigade that included his regiment. Morgan was later elected Democratic Senator from Alabama, serving from 1877 to his death in 1907. Ink smudges at lower left corner. Multiple mailing folds. Toned. Ink bleeds through onto verso.
