CHARLES DEVENS
Charles Devens signs a card.
Signature: "Your obed't - Servant/Chas Devens/Atty General", 3¼x2 card. Charles Devens (1820-1891), who was first offered a Cabinet post as Hayes' Secretary of War, declined the appointment, serving instead as Attorney General (1877-1881). During the Civil War, Devens was Brigadier-General in the Massachusetts State Militia and was chosen Major of the 3rd Battalion of Massachusetts Rifles, seeing action at Ball's Bluff, Fair Oaks, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. He was brevetted Major General for gallantry and good conduct at the capture of Richmond. His political career included two terms in the Massachusetts Senate (1848-1849), United States Marshal for the District of Massachusetts (1849-1853) and Justice of the State Supreme Court, where he returned after he served in the Cabinet. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
