Signature: "Jos. R. Hawley/May 9, '98/Conn". Pencil notes on verso in unknown hand. 3½x2.

He served in the Union army during the American Civil War and fought in the first Battle of Bull Run (July 21, 1861), the capture of Fort Pulaski (April 10-11, 1862) and the Siege of Petersburg (June 9, 1864 to March 25, 1865), rising from captain to brigadier general and mustering out a brevetted major general. Lightly toned. Signature is lightly smeared but legible. Adhesive residue on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
