The U.S. Congressman from Virginia pens his autograph on this 7¼x2½ piece of paper, signed in iron gall ink

Signature: “Geo C. Cabell/Danville/Va” in iron gall ink. 7¼x2½. George Craighead Cabell (1836-1906) was a lawyer, editor and congressman from Virginia. He attended Danville Academy and later the law department at the University of Virginia in 1857 and after being admitted to the bar, he started practicing in 1858. He was editor of the Republican and later Democratic Appeal in Danville and was elected commonwealth attorney on Danville in 1858, remaining there until 1861. At the uprising of the Civil War, he enlisted in the Confederate Army and eventually was promoted to colonel and served there until the end of the war, when he resumed practicing law. George Cabell was elected a Democrat to the United States House of Representatives in 1874, serving from 1875 to 1887; there, he was chairman of the Committee on Railways and Canals from 1877 to 1881. After being unsuccessful for reelection in 1886, he resumed practicing law in Danville, Virginia until his death. He is interred at Green Hill Cemetery in Danville. Lightly toned.
