#13 - U. S. Grant Estimate: $2,000+

Grant signs as commander of the Union Army—a pose appreciated by President Lincoln

Superb engraved portrait of Ulysses S. Grant as commander of the Union Army, 5.5 x 8.75, prominently signed below the image in ink, "Yours truly, U. S. Grant, General." Includes a related letter signed by the private secretary of Abraham Lincoln, "Jno. G. Nicolay," one page, Executive Mansion letterhead, April 14, 1864, to publisher J. C. Butler in New York, in part: "The President of the United States, desires me to acknowledge the receipt, of the finely executed engraving of Lieutenant General Grant, which you sent, and to express his thanks for the same." Attractively matted and framed side-by-side to an overall size of 22 x 16.5. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling, and an unobtrusive crease passing across Grant's chest. President Lincoln promoted Grant to the rank of lieutenant general and commander of all Union forces on March 10, 1864; he held the position until 1869, when he took office as president.
