Governor of Rhode Island

Letter Signed

Recommendation for General Edward Ferrero


(1824-1881) Graduated in the West Point class of 1847. Mexican War veteran. Serving on the western frontier, he was wounded in a skirmish with Apaches in 1849. He resigned his commission in 1853, invented a breech loading rifle, was appointed a Major General of the Rhode Island State Militia and was elected to Congress as a Democrat. At the outbreak of the Civil War, he organized the 1st Rhode Island Infantry, becoming their Colonel. He was in command of a brigade at 1st Bull Run. Having become a Lincoln favorite, he was given command of the expedition against the coast of North Carolina, fought at Antietam, and in December of 1862 commanded the Army of the Potomac during their bitter defeat at Fredericksburg. Burnside also saw action at Knoxville, the Overland Campaign, and Petersburg. In his post war career he was elected Governor of Rhode Island three times, and later a U. S. Senator.

Letter Signed: 1 1/3 pages, 7 1/2 x 9 3/4, in ink.

26 Exchange Place
New York, May 21, 1866
Hon. Henry A. Smythe
Collector
Custom House U.S.

My Dear Sir-

As I understand Genl. Edward Ferrero is an applicant for a position in the Custom House, permit me to add my recommendation for his appointment.

Genl. Ferrero entered the Volunteer Service under my command in 1861 as Colonel of the 51st New York Regt. The year following he was appointed Brigadier General and serving with devotion and intelligence throughout the war received towards its close as a recognition of his services the appointment of Brevet Major General.

His sentiments and actions always evinced the most uncompromising loyalty and I should be glad to hear of his appointment in the Civil Service as a mark of appreciation of his active patriotism.

Beyond his claims for his course during the Rebellion I wish also to assure you of my belief in his entire fitness for his desires.

I am Sir Very Respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
A.E. Burnside

Light age toning and wear. There are a few tiny pieces of old tape present. Nice large signature. Very good content.
