GEORGE E. SPENCER
Signature, on a small card, of the Reconstruction era Alabama Senator who had led a regiment of Alabamans fighting for the Union during the Civil War
Signature: "Geo. E. Spencer", 3½x2 card. George Eliphaz Spencer (1836-1893), a lawyer and Iowa state legislator, served in the Union army during the Civil War, being brevetted to Brigadier General for gallantry in the field. From 1863 to 1865, Spencer led an unusual unit, a cavalry regiment of Alabama Unionists! (General Sherman chose this unit as his personal escort during his march through Georgia to the sea.) Moving to Alabama as a bankruptcy judge, he became a US Senator when Alabama was re-admitted to the Union in 1868. A Republican, he served in the Senate until 1879. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
