Signature: "J. Kilpatrick/E. E. & U.S.", 5x2½. Signed in ink on a printed autograph card. Hugh Judson Kilpatrick(1836-1881), West Point graduate of 1861, became the first US Army Officer wounded in the Civil War (at the Battle of Big Bethel, June 10, 1861). Kilpatrick commanded Union cavalry in such important battles as 2nd Bull Run, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and Atlanta, rising to the rank of Brigadier General. He led several audacious raids behind enemy lines. Kilpatrick was unpopular with his own troops, who called him "Kill-Cavalry" because he incurred such high casualties. Kilpatrick's drinking, womanizing and alleged war profiteering kept him constantly in trouble. After the war Kilpatrick was active in Republican politics, ran unsuccessfully for Congress from New Jersey, and served twice as US Minister to Chile (1865-1870, 1881). Lightly toned. Fine condition.
