William Tecumseh Sherman served the initial years of the Civil War in Kentucky. His career was all but derailed when he had a nervous breakdown. However, his old friend Ulysses S. Grant brought Sherman back and gave him command of his cavalry. The two forged a close partnership and Grant named Sherman as commander of the Western Theater when he was appointed head of the entire Union Army. Sherman led his army on a march through Georgia and the Carolinas, destroying the South’s supply lines and turning the demoralizing civilian population against the war. This envelope marked “Headquarters Army of the United States” has been inscribed and signed by William Tecumseh Sherman with the added notation of “General.” The envelope shows some wear from use and the paper has toned with age. Sherman’s signature has aged to a warm sepia and contrasts nicely with the ornate lettering on the envelope. The piece comes with a Beckett LOA.
