Click on an image to enlarge

This is a great looking original autograph of Union General George B. McClellan. George Brinton McClellan is one of the most famous and intriguing figures of the American Civil War. The General who is known as "Little Mac", was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 3, 1826. He graduated 2nd in his class at West Point Military Academy in the class of 1846. McClellan served with distinction during the Mexican War. He then went on to teach at West Point and wrote a book on the use of the bayonet. Before the Civil War, he was the chief engineer of the Illinois Central Railroad. On April 23, 1861 he was appointed the rank of Major General of Ohio volunteers and was in charge of all the forces of that state by Governor Dennison. Just 3 weeks later, Abraham Lincoln appointed him the rank of Major General in the regular Army. After several incidents, he fell out of favor with the President and was replaced as the commander of the Army of the Potomac. In 1864 he ran unsuccessfully against Abraham Lincoln for the office of President. Little Mac resigned his army commission on election day. After the War he served as the governor of New Jersey from 1878 until 1881. The General died on October 29, 1885 and was buried in Trenton, New Jersey. It is a fine brown ink autograph of General McClellan. The writing reads "Very Truly Yours, Geo. B. McClellan" and even has the date of August 15th 1877. It is accompanied by a modern made xerox image of the General in uniform. This is a great autograph of one of the most popular Union Generals in American history.
