Clear ink signature on a small card affixed to a portion of an album page. Excellent condition. “D Sickle / Mjr Genl ____ / June 1864 New York[?} City[?]”.

This signature is one of many from an album compiled by William E. Kettles, who as a young man worked at a telegraph station across from the White House during the Civil War. In 1865 Kettles received the telegraph that Richmond had fallen. It is believed that Kettles likely acquired at least some of the autographs by requesting them from those who came to the telegraph station.  Later in life Kettles gifted the album to a friend, and it remained in that family until sold at auction in 2015.  [ad]
