WILLIAM H. BISBEE. TLS: "William H. Bisbee", 1p, 6½x9. Brookline, Mass., 1939 February 14. To John E. Boos recalling "memories of the Lincoln Era. Living in an adjoining State, I read day by day verbatim reports of his renowned contest with the giant Steven (sic) A. Douglas. Then followed his Cooper Union speech and many more in opposition to the extension of slavery into our Northwest States, all forecasting his great possibilities for the Presidency...Two months after Bull Run I joined the Western Army under Sherman, came promotions and among my cherished mementoes of those war days are the two Commissions signed by Abraham Lincoln...." In the Civil War, William H. Bisbee (1840-1942) saw action at the battles of Corinth, Perryville, Stones River, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Rocky Faced Ridge and Jonesboro. In 1940, at his 100th birthday, Brigadier General Brisbee was awarded the Purple Heart for his "repeated acts of bravery 80 years ago". Lightly creased. Vertical fold not at signature. Straight vertical line and an irregular line drawn at blank left margin. Overall, fine condition.
