One page DS dated Jan 22, 1865 recommending that Lieut Thayer of Co. L, 2nd NY V. Cavalry be publicly reprimanded for neglect of duty. Signed by Major John Fassett and approved by General Morgan H. Chrysler. Document in fine condition with wear as shown in the scan. Chrysler is a very rare signature and I have seen his autograph offered at over $700.00 from other civil war dealers. This one is a real bargain!
$250.00 plus shipping
