WINFIELD SCOTT HANCOCK
He has "only a moment to acknowledge receipt of your note." No wonder! Signed the very day he lost the Presidency by fewer than 40,000 votes.
Manuscript Letter signed: "Winfield Scott Hancock", 1 page, 5x8. Governor's Island, New York, 1880 November 2. To A. A. Denton, Astor House, New York City, in full: "I have only a moment to acknowledge receipt of your note of the 30th ultimo. Very truly yours'" Winfield Scott Hancock (1824-1886), a highly successful Union Corps commander during the Civil War and a hero of the Battle of Gettysburg (1863), was the Democratic Party's candidate for President in 1880, losing narrowly to James A. Garfield 4.45 million (214 electoral) votes to 4.44 million (155 electoral) votes. He lost the popular vote by fewer than 40,000 votes out of a total of nearly 9 million. A swing of 20,000 votes in New York would have made him President. Hancock remained at Governor's Island, in New York Harbor, as Commanding General of the US Army's Atlantic Division, until his death. Two horizontal folds. Slightly soiled. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
