JOHN M. SCHOFIELD
The Civil War General signs his name in black ink on a printed card
Printed card signed: "John M. Schofield", in black ink, 4x2½. Washington, D.C. March 1, 1869. To C.S. Russell Jr. Civil War General John M. Schofield (1831-1906), who was a commander in Sherman's Atlanta campaign, served as Andrew Johnson's Secretary of War from 1868-1869. Schofield succeeded Edwin M. Stanton, who resigned the day Johnson was acquitted at his impeachment trial. Schofield, who would later serve as Superintendent of West Point (1876-1881), first visited the Hawaiian Islands in 1872, and he recommended that the U.S. acquire Pearl Harbor as a naval base (U.S. military forces began moving in after the 1898 annexation of Hawaii). In 1888, after the death of Philip Sheridan, Schofield became Commanding General of the U.S. Army, serving until 1895. Schofield Barracks, a U.S. Army post about 30 miles north of Honolulu, is named in his honor. Corners slightly worn. Fine condition.
