GIDEON WELLES
The signature of President Lincoln's trusted "Neptune," clipped from a Navy document
Document Fragment signed: "G. Welles", 1p, 3½x1½ signed below "Navy Department/Official Business". Gideon Welles (1802-1878) formerly a Jacksonian Democrat, joined the newly founded Republican Party in 1854 because of his strong opposition to slavery. An able administrator, he served as Secretary of the Navy throughout the Presidencies of Abraham Lincoln (who called him "Neptune") and Andrew Johnson (1861-1869). Welles generally supported Johnson's policies, including Johnson's reluctance to impose far-reaching changes and full rights for African-Americans during the Reconstruction of the South. Irregular edges. Overall, fine condition.
