        Historically Important War-Date Autographed Letter Signed

      Washington, 1861. Washington, 1861. unbound. 3 pages on blind-stamped lined paper, 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Head Quarters of the Army, Washington D.C., November 12, 1861. Written to Brigadier General Don Carlos Buell on the very day that McClellan relieved Sherman of his command in Kentucky, assigning those responsibilities to Buell, as stated in the Orders outlined in this communication. In part: "...Upon assuming command of the Dept. of the Ohio, I will be glad to have you make a careful report of the condition and situation of your troops...the main point to which I desire to call your attention is the necessity of entering Eastern Tennessee as soon as it can be done...and I hope that you will, with the least possible delay, organize a column for that purpose, sufficiently guarding at the same time the main avenues by which the Rebels might invade Kentucky. In regard to political matters - have in mind that we are fighting solely to preserve the integrity of the Union and to uphold the power of the Government. As far as military necessity will permit, religiously respect the rights of all. Preserve the strictest discipline among the troops, and while employing the utmost energy in military careful not to widen the breach existing between us and the Rebels. You will find it well to direct that no arrests shall be made except by your order or that of your generals unless in extraordinary cases...always holding the party making the arrest responsible for the propriety of his course. If the military suggestions I have made in this letter prove to have been founded upon erroneous data, you are, of course, perfectly free to change the plan of operations." Partial tearing along the natural folds and slight browning at the edges; still an extraordinary item in very good condition. Union Major General who organized the famous Army of the Potomac and served briefly (Nov. 1861 - March 1862) as the general-in-chief of the Union Army. Failing to maintain the trust of Lincoln, McClellan was removed from his commands; first as general-in-chief, then from the Army of the Potomac. Buell aided McClellan in organizing the Army of the Potomac and was rewarded for this support by being sent, in November 1861, to Kentucky to succeed General Sherman in command after the latter had buckled under the responsibility. There Buell organized the Army of Ohio which formed the basis of the future Army of the Cumberland -- the most highly trained, successful, and modern army on either side of the Civil War. He was expected to liberate East Tennessee at the same time that he protect Louisville and take Nashville. McClellan's decision to appoint Buell commander of the Army of the Ohio is arguably the best military decision he made throughout the war. The importance of this letter is cited in "Collected Works: the Abraham Lincoln Association" and "The Official Records of the War Between the States," both of which are available on line with the complete text of this letter.

He started searching for authentic visual materials and began a critical reading of the texts.

(DNB)Besides many illustrated editions of standard works, including in 1842 an edition of the works of William Shakespeare entitled The Pictorial Shakspere, which had appeared in parts (18381841), Knight published a variety of illustrated works, such as Old England and The Land we Live in and The Pictorial Gallery of Arts - Useful Arts, the latter based on the Great Exhibition of 1851.

        Panorama of the Seat of War: Bird¿s Eye View of Texas and Part of Mexico

      New York 1861 - 23 1/4" x 31 3/4" BACHMANN, John. "Panorama of the Seat of War: Bird¿s Eye View of Texas and Part of Mexico." Color lithograph. First edition. From "Panorama of The Seat of War." Size: approx. 23 1/4 x 31 3/4 inches. New York, 1861. This colorful lithograph, entitled Panorama of the Seat of War, depicts the southern United States right before the start of the American Civil War. From this aerial perspective, one can see the entire state of Texas and parts of Mexico. Early in 1861, Bachmann, a talented artist from New York City, devised the idea of creating a series of aerial views of the expected theaters of war. The panoramic map became a popular and effective technique for relaying information to the public about the Civil War. Bachmann¿s visually attractive panoramas were considerably easier for the public to understand than conventional maps. During the first two years of the Civil War, Bachmann drew and lithographed approximately eight panoramas of the "seat[s] of war,¿ including ones of Virginia and Maryland, Richmond, North and South Carolina, Florida and part of Georgia, the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, Kentucky and Tennessee, the Gulf Coast in the vicinity of the Mississippi delta, and Texas and part of Mexico. A dense cloud of uncertainty hung over the festivities of March 4, 1861, the day of President Lincoln's presidential inauguration. While Lincoln had agreed to allow the practice of slavery to continue in the Southern states, he would not permit the Confederate States to secede from the Union: "I hold that in contemplation of the universal law and of the Constitution, the Union of these States is personal¿No state, upon its own mere motion, can lawfully get out of the Union¿I shall take care, as the Constitution itself expressly enjoins upon me, that the laws of the Union can be faithfully executed in all the States." Just a month after Lincoln's somber inauguration, the Civil War officially commenced at Fort Sumter in South Carolina. Approximately 90,000 Texans saw military service in the war, most and fought on the side of the Confederacy. Two-thirds of the Texans enrolled in the military spent time in the Southwest, either defending Texas from Indian attacks and Union invasion or participating in expansionist moves into New Mexico Territory. While most of the Civil War's battles took place outside of Texas, some did occur at Arbuckle, Brownsville, Cobb, Washita, the Sabine Pass, Taylor's Bayou, and most significantly, the seaport of Galveston. All of these locations can be located on this map. A number of other important Texas sites and cities are also labeled like Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio, the Rio Grande, the Rio Pecos, and the Brazos, Colorado and Trinity rivers. The Gulf of Mexico is also featured prominently at the bottom of the lithograph. Its placement informs the viewer that he or she is observing Texas from a southern orientation. In the end, this extraordinary map serves as not only an invaluable part of Texan history, but the history of the nation as well.

        Judah Benjamin Charges General Braxton Bragg with Alabama's Coastal Defenses

      Richmond, VA 1861 - Autograph Letter Signed as acting Secretary of War, to Braxton Bragg. Richmond, Va., October 6, 1861. 4 pp., 7 3/4 x 10 in. On War Department letterhead. Writing as acting Confederate Secretary of War, Judah P. Benjamin denies Major General Braxton Bragg the possibility of a transfer to a more active post. Instead, Benjamin gives Bragg additional responsibilities, including defending Alabama. Bragg must have become tired of inaction, as three days after Benjamin wrote this letter, Bragg ordered the Confederate assault on Fort Pickens at the Battle of Santa Rosa Island. Partial Transcript"Let me say, that the noble and self-sacrificing spirit displayed by yourself and the gallant spirits that are now chafing in the hateful inaction on the sands of Pensacola harbor, are fully appreciated, and elicit the most heart-felt approval and admiration, not only of the President [Jefferson Davis] but of every member of the administration. We are as anxious as you can possibly be to relieve you from a position to which the fortune of war has condemned you.But all our deliberation results in this, that to remove you, (as we know is your earnest desire,) to some field of more active operation, would have the most disastrous effect on the morale of the army under your command.In the mean time, the President in conversing with me on the subject of own position has suggested, that it might be a partial relief to the tedium of your constant vigil, to extend your command and make it embrace the coast of Alabama, thus giving you an additional chance for an actual fight in the event of a descent by the enemy, and you will accordingly find that a general order has been issued, making of your command a department and placing the coast defences of Alabama under your control. I think you will thus have an increased chance for actual combat."Historical BackgroundSanta Rosa Island blocked the mouth of Pensacola harbor, and the Union Fort Pickens effectively eliminated any strategic value of the Confederate capture of Pensacola's naval shipyard and nearby railroad. Three weeks prior to this letter, Union forces raided the captured shipyard and burned the schooner Judah to prevent its putting to sea as a privateer. As evidenced in this letter, Confederate Major General Braxton Bragg was "chafing in the hateful inaction on the sands of Pensacola harbor" cut off from using his newfound assets to their fullest benefit. As Benjamin was writing this letter denying Bragg's transfer request, Bragg himself must have been planning the retaliatory raid against Fort Pickens. The battle, which took place on October 9, 1861, was inconclusive, with both sides claiming victory in the Florida's first land action of the war.Known as "the brains of the Confederacy," Judah Benjamin (1811-1834) served in the Louisiana state legislature and U.S. Senate before joining Jefferson Davis's cabinet first as Attorney General, then Secretary of War, and finally as Secretary of State. A New Orleans lawyer, Davis had given Benjamin the post of attorney general until deciding he needed him in a more important role. In September 1861 he was moved to the War Department. His closeness to Davis-and his Jewish faith-attracted resentment from jealous rivals. With the loss of Roanoke Island in 1862, along with Grant's capture of Forts Henry and Donelson, critics demanded Benjamin's blood. Davis responded by promoting him to Secretary of State, a post he held until the collapse of the Confederacy. Initially part of Davis's contingent when the Confederate president fled Richmond in women's clothing, Benjamin escaped to England where he thrived as a lawyer and was named to the Queen's council. He retired in 1883.Braxton Bragg (1817-1876) was a career military officer first in the U.S. Army and later in the Confederate Army. He attained the rank of full General in the Confederate Army, one of only seven in the Confederacy. He fought at the Battles of Shilo. (See website for full description)

Benjamin sends his official reports on the attacks on Forts Walker and Beauregard to Jefferson Davis, to be communicated to the Confederate Congress. Transcript "30 Dec 1861SirI have the honor to submit herewith copies of the official reports of the Bombardment of Forts Walker and Beauregard at the entrance of Port Royal Sound; and of the battle of Drainsville of the 20th inst. for communication to the Congress.

Du Pont had just led a fleet of 17 cruisers and some 12,000 men from Hampton Roads, Virginia to Port Royal Sound. On 7 November he seized Fort Walker and Fort Beauregard, which the Union then used as a base of operations in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.Judah Benjamin (1811-1834) was valued by Davis more than any other cabinet member. A New Orleans lawyer and Senator given the post of Attorney-general, until Davis decided he needed him in a more important role. In September 1861 he was moved to the War Department.

Elected to the U.S. Senate, Davis resigned when Mississippi seceded in 1861. He organized the Confederacy under a strong, centralized rule that frustrated many Southern leaders who had argued for states' rights. He faced charges of treason and imprisonment at the end of the Civil War, but was not prosecuted, because his trial would have taken place in Virginia where a jury might refuse to convict him. In his later years Davis wrote his memoirs, The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government.
