JOHN C. FRÉMONT
John C. Frémont signs and addresses an envelope.
Envelope signed: "Genl Frémont" at lower left, 5x4. Addressed by him to: "Mrs. A Deleone Townsend./343 W. 34th Street". In the 1840s, John C. Frémont (1813-1890) led Congressionally-funded expeditions to survey the Oregon Trail, Oregon Territory and the Great Basin and Sierra Mountains to California. He grew wealthy during the gold rush of 1848 and became one of California's first two U.S. Senators (1850). In 1856, he became the first presidential nominee of the newly founded Republican Party, losing to Buchanan. In the Civil War, Frémont was appointed Major General by President Lincoln and briefly commanded the Western Department, removed from his post when he decided independently to emancipate all of Missouri's slaves (August, 1861). Ruined financially by bad investments in the early 1870s, Fremont returned to politics as Governor of the Arizona Territory (1873-1883). Lightly creased at blank edges. Lightly soiled, touching signature. Overall, fine condition.
