MAJOR GENERAL EDWARD R. CANBY - MANUSCRIPT LETTER SIGNED 02/01/1864 - HFSID 261516

 

EDWARD R.S. CANBY. Manuscript LS: "E.R.S. Canby", 1¼p, 7¾x9¾. War Department, Washington City, 1864 February 1. To U.S. Senator Henry Wilson, of Massachusetts acknowledging "the receipt by reference from you of a communication of Mr. A.W. Warren relative to John W. Darby, Company 'K' 22d Massachusetts Volunteers whom you recommend for discharge...." He quotes a report from the regiment's surgeon reporting that Darby was "in very good health, even though he is asthmatic at times", but is much better and desires to remain in the service so "the discharge of Darby cannot be granted." An 1839 West Point graduate, CANBY fought in the Seminole War and the Mexican War. In 1862, he commanded the Union's Department of New Mexico and defeated a Confederate attempt to take California. Canby then went to Washington as the Assistant Adjutant General, and then commanded troops in New York City after the draft riots. On March 4, 1873, HENRY WILSON was sworn in as Grant's Vice President. A month later, on April 11, 1873, Modoc Indians in northern California murdered Canby, who had been sent to negotiate peace with the tribe. Light stains at upper blank margin and at blank areas on verso. Lightly shaded at lower margin. Overall, fine condition.
