(1824-1902) Was born in Baden, Germany. He graduated from a military academy at Karlsruhe in 1843, and became a subaltern in the service of Grand Duke Leopold. During the 1848 insurrections he acted as minister of war for the revolutionary forces which were overthrown by the Prussians. He fled to New York in 1852. During the years before the war he taught school and held a major's commission in the 5th New York Militia. Sigel became a brigadier general on August 7, 1861, and a major general on March 22, 1862. Despite his military shortcomings, he did much to unify the large German population of the Northern states and contributed thousands of recruits to the Union ranks. "I fights mit Sigel," became almost a password among the Dutch and his influence with them never waned. He performed well at the capture of Camp Jackson, and the engagement at Carthage, Mo. At Elkhorn Tavern he contributed greatly to the Union victory. He saw action in the 2nd Bull Run campaign, and later commanded the Department of West Virginia. In 1864, he had the misfortune to fight the battle of New Market, Va., against the cadets of the Virginia Military Institute, by whom he was soundly trounced.

From the E.M. Bruce Collection. Compliments of Passenger Department, Southern Pacific, Sunset Route. Cumming & Son, Printers, Houston, Texas. 32 pages, illustrated. Soft covers, 9 3/4 x 6. Circa 1880's. Age toning, scattered staining, and some paper loss to page edges which doesn't affect the content. The covers and pages were laminated at some point to protect them from further wear and tear.


All the signatures and documents contained in this book are copied from the originals out of an album now in the possession of Geo. S. Bruce, Houston, Texas, with the exception of the signers to the Montgomery constitution and the order of surrender of Gen. Jos. E. Johnston, both of which are copied from the originals.


The book includes an introduction which closes with the following words: "The men who wore the gray will be enshrined in our hearts forever. Their memory can never fade...Southern mothers always will tell her sons and daughters of the glorious days of the Confederacy when Lee and Jackson and Stuart and Morgan held the bridge against the whole Northern Army. Sons, daughters and children of the Confederacy keep a perpetual remembrance of the deeds of those who suffered for us that it may aid in the establishment of truth, and hasten the triumph of virtue. Let us never forget the splendid men who fought to uphold a principle. Their heritage was one of blood. Ours is the glory of their fame and a love that endureth forever."  


The book exhibits over 200 facsimile signatures including the Confederate Cabinet led by President Jefferson Davis, and Vice President Alexander H. Stephens, Congressmen from the States of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Texas and the Cherokee and Seminole Nations. It also includes facsimile signatures of some officers of the Confederacy such as Robert E. Lee, Joseph E. Johnston, John C. Breckenridge, John B. Gordon and Raphael Semmes, the Kentucky War Governor and Secretary of State, an 1864 Kentucky election ticket, the signatures to the C.S.A. Constitution adopted at Montgomery, Alabama, the surrender order of General Joseph E. Johnston to his troops, and there is even a copy of the original pass issued to Mrs. [E.M.] Bruce, by President Abraham Lincoln which reads as follows, "Allow the bearer, Mrs. Bruce, with ordinary baggage to pass our lines & go South, A. Lincoln, March 11, 1865." H.C. Bruce, of Covington, Ky., who obtained this pass from President Lincoln for Mrs. E.M. Bruce, at first thought Mr. Lincoln was joking when he agreed to issue it. Mr. Lincoln made the remark that this war was not made against women and children. There is also a printed copy of the oath of allegiance to the United States, for E.M. Bruce, whose collection this book is based on, which is signed by President Andrew Johnson.


Although the booklet has some condition flaws, the lamination makes it very solid and easy to handle. This is a very interesting piece of Confederate history, issued by the great Southern Pacific Railroad. It would be a good reference tool for those interested in Confederate autographs, especially the Congressman that represented each of the Confederate States during the War Between the States. I've never come across one of these particular books before so they must be fairly uncommon to find.       An original group of 17 Civil War veteran ribbons & medals incl 1) Saratoga, NY National Encampment Ribbon for Utah delegate, 1909, w GAR illus,  2-12)  11 GAR Reunion Ribbons, Onondaga, New York reunions, 1903-1918 Long Branch, NY,13-14)  2 Department of NY GAR Reunion Ribbons, Syracuse, 1936, one w pinbar, 15) GAR National Encampment Copper Medallion Denver, Colorado, 1905, approx 2.8" diameter. 16) GAR ID disk w GAR seal, no name, 17) Mourning Medal w US eagle seal, enamel  metal & black ribbon, no pinbar, possibly fraternal.

LINCOLN MEMORIAL CONCERT. Fifty-Third Anniversary Of Emancipation Proclamation. Tuesday Afternoon, February Fifteenth, Nineteen Sixteen, Two O'Clock.

WBTS Trivia: President Abraham Lincoln issued his Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, freeing the slaves in those states that were in rebellion against the United States. It is estimated that this freed 3 million slaves at the time. The Proclamation also ordered that suitable persons among those freed could be enrolled into the paid service of United States forces, and ordered the Union Army, and all parts of the Executive branch, to "recognize and maintain the freedom of" the ex-slaves. This concert was being held in honor of Lincoln's Proclamation.

By Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard. Published by Henry Holt & Co., New York, First Edition, 2011. Hardcover, dust jacket, 324 pages, index, illustrated. Brand new condition.


The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history- how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased.


In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington, D.C., John Wilkes Booth- charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist- murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues, and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions- including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. Featuring some detail, and page turning action, "Killing Lincoln" is history that reads like a thriller.  Height:	65 in. (165.10 cm)

War Department

Adjutant General's Office

Washington, December 15, 1863


General Orders

No. 396


I..Before a Military Commission, which convened at Clarksville, Tennessee, July 16, 1863, pursuant to Special Orders, No. 174, dated Headquarters, Department of the Cumberland, Nashville, Tennessee, July 4, 1863, and of which Lieutenant Colonel John Gault, 28th Kentucky Volunteers, is President, was arraigned and tried-


Dr. Aaron James


James was brought up on three charges:


1..Being the captain of a band of guerrillas or marauders that were shooting at U.S. soldiers.


2..Being one of a hand of rioters engaged in shooting at and resisting the soldiers of the U.S. when in the performance of their duty.


3..Violating his oath of allegiance to the U.S. Government and bearing arms against the U.S.


The specifications of the case state that Dr. James having taken the oath of allegiance to the U.S., did, at Palmyra, and other places, bear arms against the U.S., and did assist and abet the enemies of the U.S. in rebellion against the government, all this at Dixon County, Tenn.


Dr. James pleaded not guilty to all of the charges, but the military court found him guilty on all three charges and sentenced him to be hanged by the neck until he be dead at such time and place as the General commanding the Department of the Cumberland may direct. However, President Lincoln disapproved of the sentence and directed that the prisoner be released from arrest and confinement.

<b>Written by an officer captured at Winchester, Va., and who died as a P.O.W.</b>


3 1/4 pages, 5 x 8, in ink, written by Lieutenant Levi Lupton, to his wife. 


<b><u>Winchester, [Va.], April 1st, 1863</b></u>


My Dear and loving wife,


After my love to you and the children I will inform you that I am well this morning and wish that this may find you the same.  Well dear, Miles Davis [1] overtook me and came on with me here.  We got to Barnesville about 4 o’clock where I found 5 of my paroled men and Sam Stonebraker. [2]  We got our supper and started about 7 o’clock.  We came right through to Martinsburg where we arrived at 11 o’clock.   Yesterday we left there about 1 o’clock for this place.  The road was bad but we got into camp at 10 o’clock last night about as tired a set of fellows as you ever seen, but I got a good night’s rest and feel first rate this morning.  My cold is a heap better than it was when I left home and I think it will be well in a day or two.  Well I found the boys all well.  It snowed considerable night before last and the wind commenced blowing last night and I think it is about as stormy a time as I have ever seen.  The wind is blowing a perfect hurricane.  Every once in awhile it upsets a tents.  It keeps the boys fixing up all the time and I don’t know when it is a going to be any better but hope the weather will be better soon.  Well Dear, we expect to be put to work to fix up the railroad from here to Harpers Ferry and hope it may be so.  If we do that I think we will be sent to Harpers Ferry which will be a little nearer home than we are at present and that is what I would like.  Well I would have been glad to have been at home last night instead of tramping along through the mud and slop and I do hope that it will not be long before I will get home to stay.  I was glad to see the boys as Gib Carlton.  [3]  I would have been willing to have started back from Martinsburg on as stormy as it is this morning.  I would be glad to start for home again if they would let me, but I don’t suppose  they would let me go.  Well dear, I got two letters, one from you and one from Margy, and although I had heard all at home, yet it done me good to read them for it seemed like talking to you.  I want you to write as often as you can.  Well dear, I must bring my letter to a close.  I wish if you have a chance you would send Hallister’s overcoat to Woodfield to Davenport’s as I forgot it when I left.  I can’t think of anything of importance to write so I will conclude with my never dying love to you. I remain your loving husband.
