Printed Document Signed.
This great-great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin served as aide-de-camp to General George B. McClellan and later to General Nathaniel Banks through most of the Civil War; a Wyoming cattle rancher later in life, he authored the 1892 "History of the Nineteenth Army Corps" and contributed many articles to "The Battles and Leaders of the Civil War." Printed DS, 2pp (recto and verso), 4¼" X 7½", Washington, DC, 1861 October 18. Very good. Lightly age toned, with faint single vertical fold; left margin likely trimmed. This printed "General Orders, No. 30," issued from the Headquarters of the Army of the Potomac, concerns "the preparation of soldiers' discharge papers" -- which apparently were often "in a great many instances, very defective and imperfect" and required all types of additional red tape. This two-page summary runs through the proper papers any soldier should have to be correctly cashiered. At the close it notes "By Command of Major General McClellan" and is signed in type at lower right by Paymaster General Benjamin F. Larned and Assistant Adjutant General S. Williams -- and is signed in full in rich brown ink at lower left by Irwin above his printed title. An attractive example. N° de ref. de la librería 40806
