MAJOR GENERAL NATHANIEL P. BANKS - SIGNATURE(S) - HFSID 1994

 
NATHANIEL P. BANKS
Former congressman and Governor signs on a 7x4 paper
Signature: "N.P. Banks/Waltham/Massachusetts", 7x4. Nathaniel P. Banks, a former Congressman (1853-1857) and Governor (1858-1861) of Massachusetts, had received a political appointment as Major General of Volunteers in 1861. He had been Speaker of the House from 1855-1857. With no military training, he proved to be an inept leader on the battlefield, and was nicknamed "Commissary Banks" by the Confederates as a result of his tremendous loss of supplies during the campaign in the Shenandoah Valley. He returned to Congress at war's end, serving as a Republican from 1865-1873, 1875-1879 and 1889-1891. Lightly creased, soiled and toned. Corners chipped and worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
