ROBERT SCHENCK
Free Frank sent from Washington as a Member of Congress
Free Frank signed: "Robt. C. Schenck M. C.", 4¾x1. Robert Cumming Schenck (1809-1890) served as U.S. Representative from Ohio (1843-1851, 1863-1871), and U.S. Minister to Brazil (as well as Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, 1851-1853). Despite having no prior military experience, Schenck proved a capable general in early engagements of the Civil War, until he resigned to take his seat in Congress, having beaten notorious "Copperhead" Democrat Clement Vallandingham. He failed of re-election by three votes in 1870. Appointed Minister to the United Kingdom by President Grant, he popularized draw poker in that country, later writing a book on the subject, but he soiled his reputation by lending his name to an unsound mining investment scheme. Robert Schenk's brother, John F. Schenck, was a US Navy rear admiral. Toned. Mounting residue on verso. Ink stamp on face. Otherwise, fine condition.
