MAJOR GENERAL JOSEPH C. BRECKINRIDGE - AUTOGRAPH SENTIMENT SIGNED - HFSID 22281

 
JOSEPH C. BRECKINRIDGE
Autograph Sentiment
signed as Inspector General of the US Army
Autograph Sentiment signed: "J. C. Breckinridge/Inspector General U.S. Army", 4x2½ card. Joseph Cabell Breckinridge (1842-1920) fought in the Union Army in the Civil War (1842-1920), campaigning with Sherman's army and rising to the rank of major. In 1890, promoted to brigadier general, he became the US Army's Inspector General. He was promoted to Major General at the outset of the Spanish-American War. The Breckinridge family of Kentucky is the perfect example of the splits engendered by the Civil War. Joseph Breckinridge's father, Robert J. Breckinridge, a slave-owner, supported Abraham Lincoln and the Union cause, giving a moving pro-Union speech at the Republican National Convention of 1864. Two of Joseph Breckinbridge's brothers and his brother-in-law fought for the Confederacy, however, as did his cousin, John Cabell Breckinridge, Vice President of the United States (1857-1861), southern Democrat candidate for President in 1860, and thereafter a Confederate general. Very lightly toned. Adhesive residue on verso - no show-through. Fine condition.
