        Autograph Letter, Signed ("George"), to his brother, giving his eye-witness account of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln on the night of April 14th, 1865

      "Montauk", Montauk Navy Yard, Wash D.C. 34, 1865. 4 pp. 8vo. Slight soiling and minor tears along old folds, otherwise in very good condition. 4 pp. 8vo. The Surgeon of the 'Montauk' Gives an Eye-Witnesses Account. "...About 10:25 P.M. a man came in and walked slowly along the side ..." A remarkably clear and dramatic eyewitness account of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln from a naval surgeon who was close to the President's box at Ford's theater on that fateful night of April 14, 1865. In this letter to his brother written the night after the assassination, while the details were still fresh in his memory, Dr. George B. Todd, surgeon aboard the U.S. "Montauk" at anchor in the Navy Yard that day, recounts the terrible event with a clarity of observation one might expect of his profession - a rarity among confused eyewitness accounts. The text of Todd's letter - one of only 7 eyewitness accounts written within 24 hours of the assassination - reads: "The few hours that have intervened since that most terrible tragedy of last night have served to give me a little clearer brain, and I believe I am now able to give you a clear account up to this hour. Yesterday about 3 P.M. the President and wife drove down to the navy yard and paid our ship a visit, going all over her, accompanied by us all. Both seemed very happy, and so expressed themselves, - glad that this war was over, or so near its end, and then drove back to the White House. In the evening nearly all of us went to the Ford's Theatre. I was very early and got a seat near the President's private box, as we heard he was to be there. About half past nine he came in with his wife, a Miss Harris and Major Rathburn and was cheered by every one. As soon as there was a silence the play went on, and I could see that the "pres." seemed to enjoy it very much. About 10:25 P.M. a man came in and walked slowly along the side on which the 'pres.' box was and I heard a man say "there's Booth" and I turned my head to look at him. He was still walking very slow, and was near the box door, when he stopped, took a card from his pocket, wrote something on it, and gave it to the usher, who took it to the box. In a minute the door was opened and he walked in. No sooner had the door closed, then I heard the report of a pistol and on the instant, Booth jumped out of the box onto the stage, holding in his hand a large knife, and shouted so as to be heard all over the house - 'Sic Semper Tyrannis' ("so always with tyrants") and fled behind the scenes-I attempted to get to the box but I could not and in an instant the cry was raised 'The President is Assassinated.' "Such a scene I never saw before. The cry spread to the street, only to be met by another, 'So is Mr. Seward.' Soldiers had gone. Some General handed me a note and bid me go to the nearest telegraph office and arouse the nation. I ran with all my speed and in ten minutes the sad news was all over the country. Today all the city is in mourning, nearly every house being in black and I have not seen a smile. No business and many a strong man I have seen in tears. "Some reports say Booth is a prisoner, others that he has made his escape, but from orders received here, I believe he is taken as a mob once raised now would know no end. I will not seal this until morning and I may have some more news. "April 24th. "I have had no time to write until now, as I have been a detective. We have now 7 that are implicated. Why don't you write? Love to all, George" Several important facts regarding the movements of both the President and John Wilkes Booth are recorded here: (1) This appears to be the only eyewitness account of the President's inspection of the "Montauk" earlier that afternoon. (2) Todd's account of Booth's interaction with the "usher" sitting outside the President's box ("took a card from his pocket, wrote something on it, and gave it to the usher") is especially intriguing, and reveals not only something of Todd's powers of observations, but also his proximity to the assassin immediately before the shooting. Todd alone among eyewitnesses notes that the "usher" first took the card from Booth, then went into the box, and that a short time later the door opened, and Booth went in. In fact, Good finds only 7 other eye-witness accounts of the Lincoln assassination as early as April 15 -- most of these witnesses record little or nothing regarding the events before hearing the shot itself, and none of them noticed Booth's interchange with the usher (who was, in fact, Lincoln's valet, Charles Forbes). There are three other accounts by eyewitnesses which partially corroborate Todd's observation of the Forbes and Booth interchange -- but they were written much later than Todd's. (3) Todd's observation of the time he spotted Booth moving toward the box ("about 10:25") corresponds to Good's own conclusion that Booth fired the fatal shot close to 10:30 PM. According to James Swanson (MANHUNT, p. 419) "the exact time of Booth's shot cannot be fixed ... Booth may have shot Lincoln as early as 10:13 or as late as 10:30" Todd's account - again, one of the freshest and most reliable, weighs heavily in favor of Good. (4) Todd, by his own account, played a role in alerting the nation by telegraph. (5) Although he doesn't mention it, as a surgeon of the ironclad Montauk, Todd was also probably present at the autopsy of John Wilkes Booth on Thursday, April 27 in the gun room of his ship. Indeed, in an article in the February issue of the Baltimore and Ohio Magazine, 1926, where the letter was first published and reproduced, Todd is reported to have been "one of the surgeons who performed the autopsy." That, as well as the fact that the other prisoners were being held on board the ironclad "Montauk" and "Saugus", may explain his cryptic remark near the end ("... I have been a detective ..."). Todd actually mailed the letter on April 30, 3 days after the autopsy, and may very have participated in the actual investigation of the captives aboard the "Montauk." AN EXTRAORDINARY AND UNIQUE RECORD OF ONE THE NATION'S GREAT TRAGEDIES. Published (from a copy in the State Historical Library of Wisconsin) in Timothy S. Good, WE SAW LINCOLN SHOT (U. of Miss., 1995; with the mistaken date of April 30, 1865)

        Bed of the Atlantic. From one sounding of 12,000 feet deep in the Atlantic Ocean in latitude 47º north, longitude 23º west, are taken upwards of one hundred microscopic drawings of minute organisms; beautifully illustrating "In that great and wide sea are things creeping innumerable."

      SOLE EDITION of an extremely rare and pioneering work in oceanography. Commander William Chimmo, RN, commanded HMS Gannet from 1865-1868, and in 1868 was ordered by the Admiralty to define the northern limits of the Gulf Stream and to take soundings within those limits. Chimmo describes and illustrates in this book specimens brought up from 12,000 feet deep, which may have been the deepest specimens ever recovered at that time. In 1869 and 1870, HM Ships Porcupine and Lightning brought up specimens from 14,600 feet, as recounted by C. Wyville Thomson in his book The depths of the sea (London, 1873). Although Thomson covers the history of deep-sea sounding and dredging before the Challenger Expedition, he makes no mention of Chimmo.From 1956 to 1958 Chimmo, then a Captain, was secretary to the Hydrographer of the Admiralty. As a midshipman Chimmo had published Euryalus; Tales of the Sea (London, 1860), which included three consecutive voyages in search of Sir John Franklin's lost expedition.Included with this copy of Chimmo's book are the following: 1) 7 numbered leaves of pencil drawings, with captions in ink or pencil, which are probably Chimmo's on-the-spot sketches, made while he was on the voyage. The drawings are quite rudimentary, but show his important initial jottings and impressions, which could later be developed in to the beautiful plates in his book. (Slight dampstaining to corner of some leaves.) 2) A series of 9 autograph letters from the printer and publisher J.W. Maltby to Chimmo, dated February to April 1870, concerning his work for Chimmo on this book, discussing the plates, paper, binding, subscribers list, corrections, etc. The print run seems to have been 130 copies. 3) Six copies of the prospectus for the book, 10 x 8 inches, a single sheet printed on one side only. The title is different, viz: "A Pictorial Illustration of Marine Life at Great Depths" 4) A part-printed note of thanks from the Royal Society for the receipt of their copy of the book, dated 25th March 1870. 5) A similar receipt (chipped and dampstained) for Chimmo's later work, Natural History of the Euplectella Aspergillum (Venus Flower Baskets), dated 12th April 1878. 6) One of Chimmo's specimens of the Venus Flower Basket, 9 inches high, standing in a contemporary filigree holder (broken) of silver or white metal, with wooden base. Chimmo dredged for these glass sponges off the Philippine Islands. The Venus Flower Basket was recently selected by Sir David Attenborough as one of the ten creatures that he would save from extinction (in his television programme Attenborough's Ark), describing it as "among some of the most beautiful andmost remarkable organisms."4to, pp. 40, (1) subscribers list, and 14 plates lithographed by Maltby from drawings by the author (7 of which have a black background). Contemporary blue half calf and blue cloth sides (crack in lower part of joints), the upper cover with an image of an Asterolampra (Bishopii) in gilt, gilt edges, marbled endpapers. A fine copy. A FAMILY COPY, inscribed on the front endpaper "Father's Book / to Mary / from Mother/ Westdown [Weymouth] / Xmas 1904."

        FRONTIER SCOUT

      Fort Rice, Dakota Territory, 1865. Three horizontal fold lines. Small closed tear in a fold at one edge, else near fine. The tenth issue of this rare weekly newspaper printed at Fort Rice in the Dakota Territory. The main story in this issue is the "March of the North-West Indian Expedition," written by "Medicus." This expedition of several days' duration was commanded by Brig. Gen. Alfred Sully and contained companies drawn from all over the upper Plains. They travelled as far west as the "Shyenne" and Mouse rivers, encountering several tribes but seeing no action. While the troops were away, Fort Rice was attacked by the Sioux on July 28, in a bloody battle recounted in issue eight of the paper. Another article, written by a regular contributor identified as "S.P.Y.," gives biographical information about several of the officers stationed at Fort Rice. Other contents include poetry (e.g. a poem called "The Dying Indian's Request"), a report of a buffalo hunt, and an article on Sioux ceremonial dances. The FRONTIER SCOUT carried original articles by soldiers and local citizens, and was published "for the edification of the people of Dacotah, both civilized and savage." "This weekly Army newspaper is the second newspaper printed in what is now North Dakota...Remarkably interesting and full of local color" - Streeter. Indeed, as Streeter notes, it is only preceded by an identically named newspaper published at Fort Union, which produced three or four issues in the summer of 1864. The FRONTIER SCOUT published at Fort Rice began its run on June 15, 1865, and continued on until the First United States Volunteers left the fort in October 1865, producing a total of fifteen issues. It was edited by Captain E.G. Adams and published by Lieut. C.H. Champney. Fort Rice was established July 11, 1864 on the right bank of the Missouri River, about thirty miles south of present-day Bismarck, North Dakota. The mission of the troops at the fort was to control the Sioux, protect the immigrant route from Minnesota to Montana, and to protect navigation on the Missouri River. The fort was abandoned within fifteen years, superceded by the nearby Fort Yates. The FRONTIER SCOUT is not listed in Allen's bibliography of Dakota imprints, but if it was it would fall within the first thirty-five items listed. A remarkable frontier newspaper, filled with information on Badlands, and on the activities of the army in the early days of the Indian Wars. Rare.

        A scarce admission card to the trial of the Lincoln assassination conspirators in pristine condition

      Washington, DC, 1865. 3.25" x 2". "Partly-printed Document Signed, ""D. Hunter,"" as ""President of the Commission,"" 1 page, 3.25"" x 2"", Washington, 1865, an admission pass to view the proceedings of the trial of the Lincoln assassination conspirators. Extremely fine condition.On May 1, 1865, President Andrew Johnson signed a controversial Executive Order to form a nine-man military commission to adjudicate John Wilkes Booth's conspirators in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and the attempted overthrow of the Federal Government. The trial, lasting from May 10 to June 30, was presided over by General David Hunter, who signs the present pass. The other members of the commission consisted of Lew Wallace, August V. Kautz, Alvin P. Howe, Robert S. Foster, James E. Eken, T.M. Harris, C.H. Tompkins, and David R. Clendenin. The prosecution was chaired by Judge Advocate General Joseph Holt. The proceedings concluded with the pronouncement of guilty verdicts for all the conspirators. Mary E. Surratt, Lewis Thornton Powell (alias ""Payne""), George A. Atzerodt, and David E. Herold were sentenced to death; Dr. Samuel A. Mudd, Michael O'Laughlin, and Samuel B. Arnold were sentenced to life imprisonment at hard labor; Edman Spangler was given six years at hard labor. The executions were carried out on July 7, 1865. Spangler, Arnold, and Mudd were pardoned in 1869; O'Lauglin died the previous year while incarcerated.David Hunter (1802-1886), a close Lincoln friend, accompanied the president-elect for a portion of his inaugural journal from Springfield to Washington and commanded the detail that escorted the return of his body to Illinois. Considered one of Lincoln's more controversial generals - a man absolutely despised in the South - Hunter first entered military service after graduating from West Point in 1822. During the War he held several posts, including: commanding the 2nd Division, Army of Northeastern Virginia; commanding brigade, Division of the Potomac; commanding Western Department; commanding Department of Kansas; commanding Department of the South; and commanding the Department of West Virginia. He was severely wounded while leading one of two divisions on the flank march at the 1st Bull Run. After his recovery and service in other posts - including replacing the command of General John C. Fremont - in late 1862, Hunter found himself in South Carolina. Hunter would infuriate Confederates in that state by announcing the ""abolition"" of slavery in the department and forming the 1st South Carolina Colored Infantry. Washington, still hoping for a peace proposal, disavowed his policies. He earned a regular brevet to brigadier for his victory at Piedmont under U.S. Grant. Hunter's policy of burning Confederate land and properties - including the torching of the Virginia Governor's residence and the Virginia Military Institute - earned him a death sentence if ever captured. His presiding over the trial of the conspirators was his last active role in military service."

        A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field. Received October 27, - Read December 8, 1864.

      London, Taylor and Francis, 1865. 4to. Bound in contemporary half calf with five raised bands. Rich gilt spine with titel and journal number in gilt lettering. In "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London", volume 155. Extremities slightly rubbed and back board with 5 cm long tear to middle of outer margin. Two stamp to pasted down front end-paper and verso of title-page. A fine and clean volume. Pp. 459-512. [Entire volume: VI, (14), 512 pp. + 12 plates].. First printing of this fundamental paper, in which Maxwell unified the theory of light-waves, electricity, and magnetism in his spectacular laws of electromagnetism. The paper represents THE BIRTH OF ONE OF THE GREATEST DISCOVERIES IN THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE and the most SPECTACULAR TRIUMPH OF THE 19TH CENTURY - it had an enormous impact on science and technology. Working out a few simple equations that expressed all the varied phenomena of electricity and magnetism, Maxwell bound them indissolubly together, showing that electricity and magnetism could not exist in isolation. Maxwell's suggestion that electromagnetic waves could be generated in a laboratory was confirmed by Heinrich Hertz's in 1887 and laid the foundations for the later inventions of radio, television, and radar."Since Maxwell's time, Physical Reality has been thought of as represented by continuous fields...not capable of any mechanical interpretation. This change in the conception of Reality is the most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton."(Albert Einstein in "James Clerk Maxwell" 1931)."James Clerk Maxwell (1831-79) succeeded in formulating Faraday's geometrical ideas in exact mathematical language. He became the founder of the electromagnetic field theory which described all electric and magnetic action as the consequence of eight partial differential equations of the first order, the celebrated "Maxwellian equations". These equations established the interrelation between two fundamental field vectors, the electric and the magnetic field strength, based on Faraday's experiments, but augmented by the 'displacement current' which was too small to be directly observable by the instruments available in his time - it was put in solely by Maxwell's ingenious intuition.....The Maxwellian theory gave Faraday's field ideas their full significance and became the most important accomplishment of nineteenth-century physics. We could not imagine the physics of our day without the Maxwellian theory, even if we know today that these equations describe the electric phenomena only in their macroscopic manifestations, but fail to account for the atomistic structure of electricity demonstrated by the existence of the electron and proton." (Cornelius Lanzos in "The Einstein Decade (1905-1915", p.71-72)."A generation later Einstein's work on relativity was founded directly upon Maxwell's electromagnetic theory; it was this that led him to equate Faraday with Galileo and Maxwell with Newton."

        ATLAS GEOGRAFICO DEL PERU

      Paris, 1865. Large folio. Contemporary half calf and red boards, spine gilt. Slight worming to imprint on titlepage; publication date effaced. Moderate to heavy foxing to three plates, but generally quite clean. Very good. This magnificent atlas by Peru's most eminent 19th- century historian contains numerous maps, city plans, views, groups, scenery, etc. The author obviously drew inspiration from Humboldt's grand works on America; many of the plates were made after daguerreotypes. Mariano Felipe Paz Soldan (1821-86) was a Peruvian historian and geographer. He was born at Arequipa, Peru, and one of the stunning plates in the ATLAS is a large folding view of that city. Phillips calls for seventy-two plates, while Palau calls for seventy-four; copies on OCLC are listed with seventy-two, seventy-three, and seventy-four plates.

        A SKETCH OF ARMY LIFE OR ARMY DAYS & NIGHTS ON THE BATTLEFIELD. VOL. 2

      [N.p. ca. 1865].. 168,[57]pp., about 35,000 words. Quarto. Original three-quarter sheep and brown cloth. Extremities very worn, boards nearly detached. Internally bright and clean. Good. The unpublished memoir of Union soldier Harold J. Eaton, through the Army of the Potomac campaigns in the spring of 1864. This manuscript volume picks up on May 18, 1864 and appears to be based on his war journals with many detailed passages on specific battles. The first volume of his memoirs has been lost. The memoir begins at the Battle of Spotsylvania in the brutal Wilderness Campaign in the spring of 1864, as Grant smashed his way toward Richmond by brute force. Eaton was present at some of the most horrific battles of the Civil War. His experience at the bloody Battle of Cold Harbor is recounted over five pages. "All through the woods the dead were buried, or only half buried, with their feet and hands sticking out of the ground. In many places these dead were not buried but were laying just as they fell, many of them riddled with shot and daylight was plainly shining through them." Though the battle was deemed a decisive victory for the Confederates Eaton claims a fair amount of casualties for the enemy as well, and recounts disparagingly their treatment of their dead. He concludes the narrative of the scene by offering an honest portrait of the face of war. "People at home who would like to see a battlefield had ought to have seen this one...you would have seen what desolation war makes, and what havoc the shot and shells makes among men and horses, and among the trees. I hope all who may read this will never see anything of this kind..." ^Eaton continues to narrate, with considerable verve and style, the campaign through early July, 1864, by which time the offensive had ground to a halt in front of the fortifications of Richmond. He was wounded in the arm at the battle of Petersburg on June 16, and withdrew to a forward hospital and then to Washington. He spent the remainder of the war in hospitals, and was mustered out on May 25, 1865. ^The later part of the text is devoted to poetry written by Eaton and fellow soldiers. These patriotic, and at times heartbreaking works, touch on topics such as the death of President Lincoln, the loss of limbs during battle, and the fear of being forgotten in death. ^A unique and extremely personal account of the Civil War and a month of the most terrible fighting of the entire war, filled with anecdotes of fear and bravery alike.

        OVERLAND TRACTION ENGINE COMPANY. TRANSPORTATION BY STEAM FROM MISSOURI RIVER TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS

      Boston, 1865. Narrow quarto. Original wrappers. Titlepage chipped on bottom and foredge, moderately dampstained. Map cleanly torn, affecting one inch of image; also cleanly separated along one fold. Moderate dampstaining of plates and pp.1- 15. Some additional very light dampstaining in upper outer corner of text. A good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. A scarce privately circulated prospectus setting forth the optimistic plan of the Overland Traction Engine Company to haul freight and passengers overland aboard steam traction engines from the Missouri River to the Rockies. The plates, lithographed by Prang & Co., show two views of the engine - one encased, the other uncovered. A fabulous idea at a time when supplies were routinely carried hundreds of miles over the plains entirely by mule and cattle trains. In the end, however, the plan was a bit short on execution. The engine weighed fifty-four tons when fully loaded with fuel and bogged down in mud on its first trial. The folding map illustrates the prospective route west from Nebraska City. A curious 19th-century railroad alternative, which was essentially a locomotive with wheels. The NUC locates six copies, and we can add another, at Yale.

I was proud to own this book for years (hence how I can offer it at such a low price) but I have now purchased an original with original spine-ish so my book is up for sale, the covers here have some marks, , a bit of light staining to the front cover but not inside the book. The rear cover has some wear too. The first page has a stamp from the Sydney Pardon Estate which is a nice bonus. The spine holds the book together very well and so is tightly bound. Inside the book is nice and bright and clean, a very rare book. It is quite a bit shorter than my 1864 but so is my new replacement, must have been cut fine back then.

The first page is a form circular from Secretary of State, William H. Seward, giving rules and regulations for administering and recording the amnesty oath, issued on May 29, 1865. Appended are copies of President Johnson's Amnesty Proclamation of the same date, and President Lincoln's proclamations of amnesty and pardon, dated Dec. 8, 1863 and March 26, 1864. Johnson issued his amnesty proclamation for the benefit of those in the Confederacy who had not availed themselves of Lincoln's earlier announcements. "There are eleven classes of people not included in Johnson's amnesty, beginning with 'civil & diplomatic officers or otherwise domestic or foreign agents of the pretended Confederate government'" - Goodspeed. Seward's circular and the proclamations are sometimes each found separately, but are rarely found together. A rare and highly important item, with only three copies in OCLC, at the Lincoln Presidential Library, the Allen County Public Library, and the Lincoln Museum. Not in Monaghan.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM CHARLES SUMNER TO AN UNKNOWN RECIPIENT, DISCUSSING THE EVILS OF SLAVERY AND LINCOLN'S ASSASSINATION]

      Washington, 1865. Octavo, on a folded sheet. Minor toning and soiling. Very good. The day before the official end of the Civil War Senator Charles Sumner writes, lamenting the evils of slavery which killed President Lincoln. He apologizes that the memorandum accompanying the sender's letter was lost, requesting that it be resent, expressing satisfaction that slavery had been overcome, stating that Lincoln's assassination was a natural outcome of slavery, and expressing confidence that equal rights would eventually ensure security. Sumner, a senator from Massachusetts, was an ardent abolitionist and a leader of the radical Republicans during the Civil War. He writes: "My dear Sir, Your letter of 17th Feb. is now before me; but let me confess my mortification that the memdm. which is enclosed was lost in some unaccountable way after the letter was opened. I have hoped that it would reappear in the examination of papers; but I fear it must have gone into the basket. Your letter simply refers to this memdm. without stating its contents, so that I have been unable to act upon it, as I should have gladly done. I cannot pardon this seeming [clumsiness?]; but I pray you not to consider me indifferent to your desires. In the load upon my table, I sometimes wonder that such accidents do not often occur. If it is not too late, you will kindly repeat your desires, I should do all in my part to meet them. Again, I confess my humiliation at this mischance. "You will enjoy the overthrow of belligerent Slavery. In assassinating our good Pres'dt it acted naturally, logically & consistently. And yet there are foreigners here who are astonished that J[efferson] D[avis] can be thought guilty of such an atrocity. For 30 years such things have been done by slavery. There are some who have said that we could not conquer the rebellion who now say that we cannot tranquillize the rebel country. This is a mistake. With equal rights to all without distinction of color the future is secure. Of this do not doubt. But it will take time; for is not this an immense social revolution?" On May 9, 1865, President Johnson issued a proclamation declaring that the rebellion of the southern states had ceased, thereby officially ending the war. A wonderful letter from a key player in the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.

        [MASSIVE ARCHIVE OF OVER EIGHTY CIVIL WAR-DATED LETTERS, AN 1864 PERSONAL JOURNAL, A PERSONAL ROLL BOOK, TWO CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHS, AND NUMEROUS POST-WAR LETTERS AND DOCUMENTS FROM CAPTAIN WILLIAM MICKLE, 134th NEW YORK INFANTRY REGIMENT]

      [Various places, 1865. Typical age-toning, minor foxing, and soiling. Minor spotting to photographs. Overall, very good. An engaging and important Civil War archive from Captain William Mickle, consisting in part of over eighty Civil War-dated letters dated December 6, 1862, through May 30, 1865. Also included are two photographs and numerous post-war letters, battle descriptions, and documents. The two photographs of Mickle are a war-dated carte de visite featuring Mickle standing in uniform in a studio, and the other is a cabinet card showing Mickle circa 1870 (the card is stamped by Peck and Sons photographers). The war-dated letters are written from Mickle to various family members, and consist of significant content on the midnight battle at Wauhatchie, Tennessee, as well as content on the Chattanooga Campaign, the Atlanta Campaign, the March to the Sea, and the final campaign through the Carolinas. The archive has been well cared- for and thoughtfully organized. The 134th New York Infantry Regiment mustered in for three years beginning in September 1862. At the age of twenty-three, William Mickle (1838-1922) enlisted as a private in 1862 at Duanesburg, New York, into Co. "H" of the regiment. He received several promotions throughout his service in the Civil War, from 1st sergeant, then to 1st lieutenant, sergeant, 2nd lieutenant, and finally captain. The regiment participated in numerous engagements, including Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. For a short period, Mickle served as adjutant-general for General O. O. Howard; at Missionary Ridge and Lookout Mountain, he served under General U.S. Grant; and while serving under General Thomas Hooker, he was appointed Commissary and Quartermaster of a brigade of six batteries. He transferred to Co. "C" on June 16, 1864, and was discharged on June 9, 1865. After the war, Mickle became an educator and a Methodist minister serving large churches in New York. Many of Mickle's war-dated letters retain their original transmittal envelopes. On Dec. 19, 1862, only days after the Battle of Fredericksburg, Mickle writes that the battle "was a hard fight. Our troops had no breastworks & had to march right in front of a hundred cannon & they were slaughtered off like sheep.... Our Lieutenant Colonel found our pickets & the Rebel pickets trading coffee for tobacco. Our boys had the coffee & the Rebels had the tobacco.... So goes this war business." Mickle's regiment arrived at Fredericksburg too late to participate in the main battle. On May 8, two days after the end of the Battle of Chancellorsville, Mickle informs his parents that he had "been in the terrific fight across the Rappahannock." On May 26, 1863, he expresses strong feelings toward the Confederate leadership following the death of Stonewall Jackson: "we hear favorable news from the S.W. I hope Genl. Grant will accomplish all we anticipate. Genl. Jackson (or Stonewall Jackson) is dead. I wish all the Rebel leaders would either die or give up their deluded principles." Following the Battle of Gettysburg, he writes about the Union pursuit of Lee's fleeing army on July 21, 1863 (in part): "We are again in Va. pursuing the flying Rebels as we move toward Richmond. Our Cavalry & Flying Artillery are constantly falling upon their rear making sad havoc among their trains & capturing many prisoners." Mickle and the 134th participated in the Chattanooga Campaign in October and November 1863. From "Head Quarters Artillery II Corps. Lookout Valley, Tenn." on Nov. 4, 1863, just six days after the Battle of Wauhatchie, which began at midnight on October 28, Mickle writes home about the battle. The suddenness of the Confederate assault took the Union Army by surprise: "Well you must not be surprised to see that we are now in Lookout Valley under that notorious mountain, where the Rebs have been stationed this long time, occasionally popping a 20 pound shell into the town of Chattanooga at our boys. But Fighting Joe Hooker knows how to skedaddle the Johnies! Our troops moved from Bridgeport, Ala. last week to this place but after they had driven the Rebs from the valley had all quietly lain down to sleep about 12 O'clock at night, they came down from the mountain & pounced upon us, evidently with the intent to annihilate us, but our gallant boys 'couldn't see it in that light' as they say, so they jumped up amid the leaden shower, seized their guns & went into the Johnies like a dose of salt. . . . The fight lasted till about 3 in the morning when our boys charged up the heights & drove them in confusion from field." Mickle gives another account of his experiences in Lookout Valley in another letter to his wife, Oleavia. As the presidential election of 1864 approached, Mickle's letters contain some of his political opinions. For example, in one dated Oct. 26, 1864, he writes that "One or two such triumphs before Election would make McClellan retire from the scene in disgust. 'Honest Abe' would run alone! The Darkies had a torchlight procession here the other night & a 'Little Mac' satellite threw stones into the crowd when one of the Guards sent him his compliments in the shape of a blue-gill!" Perhaps most interesting among this deep collection of letters are the numerous examples with content about Mickle's march with Sherman toward the Atlantic. From "around Atlanta" the soldier writes on Aug. 4, 1864, "We are advancing the right wing of our army toward East Point about 6 miles below Atlanta.... Our cavalry burned 700 wagons of Hood's Head Quarter train & their supply train & did them much damage." Later on Dec. 19, 1864, "Before Savannah," Mickle writes that "Genl. Sherman sent in a demand for the surrender of the city & rec'd the reply yesterday at 10 a.m. of course it was in the negative & we are to take the place in Sherman's own time." Days later on Christmas Eve in Savannah, the soldier wrote his wife to "narrate to others that your husband has been with Sherman in both his brilliant campaigns & shared the glory so justly attributed to the captors of Atlanta & Savannah." The work wasn't finished, though: "he [Sherman] may have another short campaign prepared for us through South Carolina." Mickle's final letters were written during that final campaign under Sherman in North and South Carolina. From Goldsborough, North Carolina, on April 9, 1865 (the day of Lee's surrender), he writes, "We may have a little fighting here with Joe Johnston, but it will not amount to much now. Our army alone can whip the Confederacy combined while Grant has his mighty army ready with Thomas in East Tenn. with another large body of troops." Events continued to occur quickly during April. Mickle reports on April 22, 1865, about the sad news of the assassination of President Lincoln: "Of course, you have heard all about the cruel assassination of our late President.... All had begun to appreciate the virtues of that great & noble man.... Our Country has lost one of her ablest statesmen & the South have killed their best friend he was just ready to forgive them the highest crime a man can be guilty of, viz., treason." Mickle's 1864 leather-bound journal is also included. The journal was printed for the 1863 calendar year, but Mickle used it for 1864, often striking through the printed dates. The journal includes important content regarding the Atlanta Campaign. For example in his entry for May 8, 1864, Mickle writes about the Battle of Rocky Face Ridge: "Moved 6 miles & attacked . . . [illegible] in Rocky Face Ridge under Genl [John W.] Geary & made several charges but could not carry the fight and held them. lost severely. Returned alone to Hed. Qrs. about 9 P.M. Quietly well 'played out.'" Lists and other military-related annotations are also included in the journal. Near the back are two pages of verse from a "Darkey Melody" written in the vernacular of slaves. Mickle's war-dated roll book, ca. 1862, is also included containing lists of soldier's names from Co. "H." In addition are many pages of Mickle's post-war manuscript notes and narratives of his war-time service, with titles such as "Thomas' on the assault of the Ridge," "Pollard on this assault of Mission Ridge," and "On Barbarities of our Soldiers." Notes also included are those on the Gettysburg campaign, the March to the Sea, and more. Seven letters written to Mickle during the war are additionally included. One example is a two-page letter written from two Southern belles from Arellton, Virginia, transmitting gifts to Union officers and asking Mickle to visit. The ladies sign "Secesh" after their names, but they address the letter to "Lieutenant Mickle / 'not' Yankey." Numerous additional post-war items are included, most dated from the late-1860s through the first decade of the 1900s. These items include Mickle's 1894 diary, military pension documents, estate documents, insurance policies, Methodist documents, newspaper articles, election documents, telegraphs, personal family items, prayer and sermon notes, an 1866 letter of commendation for Mickle's war-time service signed by New York Gov. Reuben Fenton, his 1871 Master Mason certificate, and numerous letters and envelopes. Also included is Mickle's copy of Mackey's MASONIC RITUALIST: OR MONITORIAL INSTRUCTIONS (New York: Clark & Maynard, 1867). A voluminous Civil War archive from an experienced officer who served the 134th New York during the heart of the conflict. An important collection for information on Sherman's March.

        OFFICIAL ARRANGEMENTS AT WASHINGTON FOR THE FUNERAL SOLEMNITIES OF THE LATE ABRAHAM LINCOLN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, WHO DIED AT THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT, ON SATURDAY, THE 15th DAY OF APRIL, 1865 [caption title]

      Washington, 1865. Folded quarto sheet. Central vertical fold and two horizontal folds. Small, closed tears at edges of horizontal folds. A couple of small, very light fox marks. Very good. In a half morocco box. President Lincoln was assassinated on April 15, 1865; his body lay in state in the White House on April 18, and the funeral service took place around noon on the 19th. After the funeral itself, the official procession, the central act in the public mourning of the President's death, accompanied Lincoln's body from the White House to the Capitol. This program, issued by the War Department, outlines the order of the procession, listing the civilian, military, and political attendees in order of appearance. The hearse is represented by a rectangle outline of stars. The procession left the White House about two o'clock in the afternoon, marching down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol. The first three divisions were the military escort, representing all the elements of the Army and Navy. After them came the attending clergy and Lincoln's attending physicians, followed by the casket itself, the only wheeled vehicle in the procession, with the pall bearers to each side. Twelve Congressmen, General Grant and Admiral Farragut as heads of the Army and Navy, with two subordinates each, and Lincoln's family and delegates from Illinois and Kentucky followed the casket. Next came government officials, ambassadors, and state officials; representatives of various organizations, delegations from colleges, lawyers, doctors, and the press; the final group is listed here as "Citizens and Strangers." Directions are given for the assembly of the procession, which ended at the Capitol, where Lincoln's body again lay in state from the afternoon of the 19th until the morning of the 21st, when it was placed on the funeral train which took it back to Springfield. An important piece of Lincoln ephemera, commemorating one of the most tragic events in our nation's history.
