Having to preserve Kentucky's neutrality at the start of the Civil War, Simon Bolivar Buckner (1823-1914) eventually joined the Confederate Army and was made a Brigadier General in September 1861. He was forced to surrender Fort Donelson (Tennessee) to General Ulysses S. Grant a personal friend, in February 1862, and was sent to a Union prison. After being exchanged, he served in Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana, being promoted to Lieutenant General in 1864. After the war, he was Governor of Kentucky (1887-1891) and was an unsuccessful vice-presidential candidate of the breakaway "Gold" Democrats in 1896. At the time of his death, he was the last living Confederate Lieutenant General. Fold crease through "c" of Buckner. Cancellation hole at upper left. Otherwise, fine condition.
