MAJOR GENERAL RUFUS INGALLS The military leader signs his name and rank on this calling card Calling Card Signed: “Rufus Ingalls/ Acting qm. genl./ bvt maj genl/ U.S. Army” 3¼x2. Rufus Ingalls (1818-1893), a West Point graduate (Class of '43), served in both the Mexican War and the Civil War. Early in the Civil War, he was made Quartermaster of the Army of the Potomac, and accomplished the remarkable feat of working well with five different commanders of that army, McClellan, Burnside, Hooker, Meade and, finally, his classmate, Ulysses S. Grant. In June 1864, Grant appointed him quartermaster of all armies operating against Richmond, a post he held until war's end. Rising to brevet major general during the Civil War, he returned to the rank of colonel afterwards, but received the permanent rank of brigadier general in January 1882, when he was promoted to Quartermaster General of the entire U.S. Army. Lightly toned. Staining throughout, especially along top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
