At the outbreak of the Civil War, he recruited and became the colonel of the 2nd Massachusetts Infantry. During the war's 2nd year, Gordon fought in the Shenandoah Valley against Stonewall Jackson, and was promoted to brigadier general, June 9, 1862. He fought at Cedar Mountain, Chancellorsville, South Mountain, and Antietam. He later served in the siege of Suffolk, Va., the siege of Charleston, S.C., and in Arkansas, Florida and Virginia.

Autograph Letter Signed: 7 1/2 to 9 1/2, in ink.

Boston, Mass.
Jany. 23, 1868

Colonel,

Your life of Gen. Grant has given me very great pleasure; much better than that, it places Grant where he ought to stand before the world.

Allow me to congratulate you upon the very clear and interesting manner in which you have compiled this history.

Sincerely yrs.,
Geo. H. Gordon
Late Bvt. Maj. Genl., U.S.V.

[to] Col. Adam Badeau
Gen. Grant's Staff
Washington, D.C.

Excellent.

Adam Badeau: (1831-95) Born in New York City, he worked as a theater critic in NYC before the war. He began his Civil War military service on April 29, 1862, when he was commissioned captain, and appointed as aide-de-camp to General Thomas W. Sherman. He was severely wounded on May 27, 1863, at Port Hudson, La., resulting in the amputation of his left foot. He later served as military secretary to General U.S. Grant with rank of lieutenant colonel. He was promoted to brevet colonel, February 24, 1865, for faithful and meritorious service; and brevet brigadier general, April 9, 1865, for gallantry during the Appomattox campaign. He accompanied General Grant to the McLean House to receive the surrender of General Lee. After the war, Badeau remained in the Regular U.S. Army until 1869. He served as U.S. Consul General at London, England from 1870-81, and U.S. Consul General at Havana, Cuba from 1882-1884. He also assisted General U.S. Grant in the preparation of his memoirs.
