The following signatures are all on signature cards and are not clipped from documents. Each card is pasted to a sheet from an autograph album. The cards generally measure 3” x 1.75”.

These signatures are 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.  [SS]
