Partly Printed Document signed: "U.S. Grant" as President and "Geo. M. Robeson" as Secretary of the Navy, 1p, 15½x19½. On vellum. Naval vignettes at top and lower center. Washington, 1873 January 27. Appointment of Henry L. Howison as Commander in the Navy. A graduate of Annapolis, Howison began his naval career as a mid-shipman in 1854. ULYSSES S. GRANT (1822-1885) had little success in civilian life but was one of the greatest military leaders the United States has produced. After winning many victories on the Mississippi during the American Civil War, culminating in the capture of Vicksburg (1863), he was brought to the Virginia Theater to face the forces of Robert E. Lee, which had bested a long series of former Union generals. He finally compelled Lee's surrender (April, 1865) on generous terms. Grant's two terms as Republican President (1869-1877) were less successful. Although he achieved progress on several fronts, including his crackdown on the Ku Klux Klan, the personally honest Grant proved unable to prevent graft by subordinates. GEORGE M. ROBESON (1829-1897), a Union General during the American Civil War, served as Grant's Secretary of the Navy from June 25, 1869 to March 3, 1877. Robeson was repeatedly accused of corruption (bribery taking, and diversion of Navy funds for his private use), but was so adept at covering his financial tracks that he earned the nickname "Cuttlefish." Twice an unsuccessful candidate for U.S. Senator from New Jersey (1876, 1880), he served as a U.S. congressman for the state from 1879-1883. 2¾-inch diameter blue seal affixed at bottom center. Lightly creased. Vertical fold touches the "n" in Grant. Lightly embossed at blank margin from prior framing. Otherwise, fine condition.
