Description


Partly-printed vellum DS as president, one page, 14.25 x 17.75, February 5, 1853. President Fillmore appoints Christopher C. Augur as "Captain in the Fourth Regiment of Infantry in the service of the United States." Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Fillmore and countersigned by Secretary of War Charles M. Conrad. The crisp white paper War Office seal affixed to the upper left remains fully intact.In fine condition. Augur's West Point classmate Ulysses S. Grant had joined Augur in Mexico as a lieutenant in the 4th Infantry, both serving under Zachary Taylor. During the Civil War, Augur would rise to the rank of major general, commanding the Army of the Gulf during the siege of Port Hudson. He was one of the Army officers present at the Peterson House when President Lincoln succumbed to his wounds, and was instrumental in mobilizing troops to pursue and capture John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators.
