MAJOR GENERAL WILLIAM S. "OLD ROSY" ROSECRANS - AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED - DOCUMENT 29113

 
GENERAL WILLIAM S. "OLD ROSY" ROSECRANS
Note written on a card by William Starke Rosecrans - "The pleasure of obtaining is at the expense the pain of furnishing autographs. Your case is exceptional."
Autograph note signed "W.S Rosecrans". 1 page, 4¼x3¼ card. Note in full: "The pleasure of obtaining is at the expense the pain of furnishing autographs. Your case is exceptional." William S. "Old Rosy" Rosecrans (1819-1898) graduated West Point in 1842 and entered the Army Corps of Engineers. He left the Army in 1854 and worked as a civil engineer and architect, but volunteered for duty when the Civil War broke out. Rosecrans was commissioned a Brigadier General in June 1861 and became Commander for Western Virginia. His first victory, at Rich Mountain in July 1861, helped create the state of West Virginia. Rosecrans' skills in fortifications, troop movement and supply lines led to success in 1862, but in September 1863 he met defeat at Chickamauga. Rosecrans, popular with troops and fondly called "Old Rosy", was relieved of command after Chickamauga, and he resigned from the Army in March 1867. His engineering expertise led to a post as Minister to Mexico. Rosecrans later served as U.S. Congressman from California (1881-1885). Lightly toned. Signature and note are lightly smeared in places but legible. Random ink stains. Otherwise in fine condition.
