War Date Document Signed by General Martindale plus Autograph Endorsement Signed by General Porter

John H. Martindale: (1815-81) Graduated #3 in the West Point class of 1835. On August 9, 1861, he was commissioned brigadier general of volunteers and fought throughout the Peninsular campaign in command of a brigade of General Heintzelman's 3rd Corps. He was military governor of Washington, D.C., and later commanded a division of General Baldy Smith's 18th Corps at Cold Harbor, Bermuda Hundred and Petersburg, subsequently commanding the corps itself until health problems forced him to resign. He was brevetted major general for gallantry at Malvern Hill.

Fitz John Porter: (1822-1901) cousin of Union Admiral David D. Porter. Graduated from the West Point class of 1845. Won the brevets of captain and major for gallantry in the Mexican War. From 1849 to 1855 he was the assistant instructor of artillery at the U.S. Military Academy, and from 1857 to 1860, he served as Albert Sydney Johnston's adjutant in the Utah expedition. In the Peninsular campaign of 1862, Porter led a division of the 3rd Corps, and during the 7 Days battles he commanded the 5th Corps where he demonstrated some of the finest defensive fighting of the entire Civil War. He also saw action in the 2nd Bull Run campaign and at Antietam. Porter became the unfortunate scape goat for the anti General George B. McClellan faction in the army & the government headed by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, and was tried on trumped up charges by a military commission for his actions in the 2nd Bull Run campaign. With the odds greatly stacked against him by virtue of defective maps, perjury and hearsay testimony, Porter was found guilty and dismissed from the army in 1863. He spent the rest of his life in an effort to vindicate his name and have it reinstated on the army roster. Sixteen years later a board headed by General John M. Schofield completely exonerated Porter from the charges brought up against him and cited him as the savior of the Army of Virginia at 2nd Bull Run. The ruining of the career of this magnificent soldier simply for his devotion to his friend and commanding officer, General McClellan, was a disgraceful chapter in the history of the Army of the Potomac.

War Date Document Signed: 2 pages, 8 x 11, in ink. "Head Quarters, 1st Brigade, Porter's Division, Hall's Hill, Virginia, January 8th, 1862. To His Excellency E.D. Morgan, Governor of New York. I have to recommend the following promotions and appointments in the 13th Regiment N.Y.S.V." Goes on to list those recommended for promotion. Martindale also notes that changes were made from the original list of promotions submitted as he says, "I found some of the persons heretofore proposed to you utterly incompetent." "Be kind enough to inform me by telegraph as soon as the appointments are made, that the parties may enter on their duties, pending the transmission of commissions. With highest respect, Your obt. Servt. and Friend, John H. Martindale, Brigadier General, Commanding."

War Date Autographed Endorsement Signed: "Approved and earnestly recommended for immediate action. With high respect, Your obt. servt., F.J. Porter, Brig. Genl. Comdg."

Light wear. Very fine.
