Military Commission for an Ohio Civil War Captain who was captured at Atlanta

(1811-65) A native of Ohio, he attended Ohio University, published the Western Republican in Marietta, and owned the Ohio Eagle in Lancaster. He served as clerk of the Ohio Senate, from 1835 to 1837, was a member of the Ohio House of Representatives in 1837, and Auditor of the State of Ohio, from 1839 to 1845. Brough improved state credit, reorganized the account system, and added one million acres to the state's tax list. From 1848 to 1863, he practiced law, was engaged in the railroad business, and published the Cincinnati Inquirer newspaper. He defeated Copperhead Clement L. Valladigham for Governor in 1863, and had an administration characterized by honesty and reform. One of his accomplishes while in office was to get passage of a state levy for the support of soldier's families, but made enemies by advocating a seniority system for army officers. When Salmon P. Chase was appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Brough was offered the cabinet post of Secretary of the Treasury, but he declined due to failing health, the same reason he did not run for another terms as Ohio Governor. He died in Cleveland on August 29, 1865.

War Date Document Signed: 13 1/2 x 10 3/4, imprinted form, filled out in ink, with large vignette of an eagle in flight carrying an American flag.
