The white War Department seal affixed to the upper left remains intact. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling, creasing to the top, and a stain to the lower left corner. An engineer and career US Army officer, Ord saw action in the Seminole War, the Indian Wars, and the Civil War; as commander of the Army of the James during the Appomattox Campaign, he was instrumental in forcing the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
