[CIVIL WAR] SHERIDAN, PHILIP. Signed letter.
New Orleans: 7 June 1867. One page letter in a secretarial hand on the stationery of the "Headquarters Fifth Military District", signed by Sheridan as "PB Sheridan", visual area 9 x 7 inches (23 x 17 cm); nicely framed with a portrait and plaque. Visually fine and with a large, bold signature, unexamined out of frame.

Here Major General Sheridan, writing from his command of the Fifth Military District covering Texas and Louisiana. Despite the post-war date, this was no peaceful time in the region as white mobs had caused violence in both states in 1866. Here Sheridan writes to Major General Townsend in Washington informing him that one Scipio Gorrillo has been sent to Washington per his request and that Sheridan has covered his traveling and family expenses.
