MAJOR GENERAL JACOB D. COX - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED CIRCA 1897 - DOCUMENT 177221

 

JACOB COX. ALS: "J. D. Cox", 1p, 5x8¼. No place, no date ("Friday A. M."). Written on verso of a folded, typed letter (10x8¼) from Alexander Hill, dated 1897 April 1, requesting that Cox write a letter to President McKinley on behalf of John James Piatt, who desired appointment as U.S. Consul at Belfast, Ireland. In full: "I take pleasure in handing you the enclosed [not included], to be used in such way as will best further Mr. Piatt's interests. Sincerely Yours". An abolitionist and founding member of Ohio's Republican Party, Jacob Dolson COX (1828-1900) became a brigadier general of U.S. volunteers early in the Civil War. He commanded a division at South Mountain and Sharpsburg (1862), commanded the military district of Ohio (1863), and then returned to divisional command in the Atlanta campaign. He served one term as Governor of Ohio (1866-1867), failing to secure re-nomination because of his support for President Andrew Johnson's Reconstruction policies. He was appointed Secretary of the Interior by President Grant (1869-1870), but resigned in protest over the administration's failure to promote civil service reform. He was elected in 1876 to one term in Congress, and later served as president of the University of Cincinnati. He wrote prolifically and controversially about the Civil War. Paper thinned on blank integral leaf (other half of the TLS verso) from prior mounting. Otherwise, fine condition.
