GILMAN MARSTON
The Civil War brigadier general and U.S. Congressman from New Hampshire sends in his recommendation for first circuit court judge to the President, signs name in black ink
Autograph letter signed: "Gilman Marston" in black ink. 1 page, 5¼x8, affixed to piece of white cardstock. Exeter, New Hampshire. March 26, 1884. Addressed "to the President". In full: "I recommend the appointment of Mr. Samuel C. Eastman of Concord, N.H. to be Circuit Judge for the first circuit in place of Judge Laurill [illegible]. Very respectfully, yours truly". Gilman Marston (1811-1890) was a United States Representative, Senator and U.S. Army Brigadier General from New Hampshire. A practicing lawyer, Marston was a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives (1845-1849) before being elected to the U.S. House in 1859, a Republican in strong support of Abraham Lincoln. With the outbreak of the Civil War, Marston served in the Union Army. First as a colonel of the 2nd New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry during the First Battle of Bull Run, later in the Peninsula Campaign, Second Battle of Bull Run and the Battle of Fredericksburg. In 1862, Marston was promoted to brigadier general of U.S. volunteers, later assigned to the defenses of Washington so that he could return to his Congressional seat. Marston was reelected to Congress after the war, serving one more term before returning to the State House of Representatives in 1872. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1889, only serving a few months to fill a vacancy before the next election. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Soiled. Stained in left margin. Light surface creases.
