Colonel of the 2nd and 137th Ohio Infantry Regiments

Mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, 1863-67

Autograph Letter Signed


(1824-90) He enlisted on April 17, 1861, as captain, and was commissioned into the 2nd Ohio Infantry. He was promoted to colonel, on August 6, 1861 but resigned on December 24, 1862 due to poor health. In the meantime, he was elected mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1863 serving in that capicity until 1867. He distinguished himself by advising Governor Brough regarding the drafting of the "100 day men," which raised and sent over 40,000 National Guard troops from Ohio into the field. On May 10, 1864, he once again joined the ranks of the military when he was commissioned colonel of the 137th Ohio Infantry. He was mustered out of the service on August 19, 1864. After the war he was Vice President of The National Home For Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.

Autograph Letter Signed: 2 pages, 8 x 10 1/2, in ink, on two separate imprinted letter sheets.

The National Home For Disabled Volunteer Soldiers

(Includes a list of the various managers and officers. Notables on the list are Civil War Generals' William B. Franklin, George B. McClellan, James S. Negley and John C. Black).

Cincinnati, Ohio, Feby. 25, 1886

My Dear Genl.,

I enclose you letter from Negley. The letter which he enclosed was from the chronic grumbling class, but did not amount to much. The writer seemed to be well enough satisfied with the accommodation at the Dayton Branch for which we should be thankful & was satisfied with giving you, Patrick & myself a rap or two, but as he found Janet with the management generally I guess we can stand it especially as he is a ward of the nation. I sent the letter to Patrick & requested to him report result of investigation to Negley.

Negley seems to be harassed with applications for admission. He had from 50 to a 100 call at his private home during day & night every month taking up the time of himself & wife. We have an agent at Washington give him a good deal of trouble; but he is a Congressman & of course the soldier’s friend so I guess he will have to stand it. Wolley & I start for the South tomorrow night. I will remain till about meeting time then I will work my way to Washington via Old Point.

Very truly yours,
L.A. Harris

Light age toning and wear.
