The Army Chief of Staff and U.S. Senator sign their names on respective sides, dated 1899. Extremely rare!

CHAFFEE (1842-1914), an officer in the United States Army, served in several wars, beginning with his involvement in the Civil War as a Union Army soldier. He fought in several battles, being brevetted Captain for his involvement in the Battle of Dinwiddie Court House. His appointment was followed by a grueling thirty years in the Indian Wars, the Spanish American War, and finally the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, where he commanded troops in Peking, China. Upon returning home, Chaffee was the Army Chief of Staff (1904-1906). He retired in 1906 at his own request, and lived the rest of his life in Los Angeles. ALEXANDER S.
