WILLIAM B. BATE. Signature: "Wm. B. Bate/Tennessee", 5½x2¼. William Brimage Bate (1826-1905) was Governor of Tennessee from 1883-1887 and served as the state's U.S. Senator from 1887 until his death, just five days into his fourth term. Bate, a former attorney and District Attorney of the Nashville District (from 1854), had seen service as a volunteer in the Mexican War before entering the Confederate Army as a private. Bate, who was wounded three times and had six horses shot out from under him, ended the War as a Major General. Bate, who fought in most of the battles of the Army of Tennessee, including Shiloh (where he was severely wounded), Chickamauga, Nashville and the Atlanta campaign, was under General Joseph Johnston's command in North Carolina at the close of the War. As a U.S. Senator, Bate authored legislation (1893) that repealed the last harsh Reconstruction measure. Stray ink marks. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 18½x21¼.
