War Period Signature With Rank

(1836-94) Born in New York City, he was the eldest son of Judge Henry E. Davies. Educated at Harvard, Williams and Columbia colleges, he graduated in 1857 from the latter. He then studied law and was admitted to the N.Y. state bar and began practice. At the outbreak of the Civil War he became captain in the 5th New York Infantry and fought at the battle of Big Bethel, on June 10, 1861. In August, he was appointed major of the 2nd New York Cavalry. The regiment was attached to McDowell's corps on the Rappahannock during the 1862 Virginia Peninsular campaign and he saw hard service during the 2nd Bull Run campaign. Davies was promoted to lieutenant colonel in December 1862, to colonel in June, 1863, to brigadier general in September 1863, and to major general by the end of the war. In June 1863 his regiment suffered very heavy casualties at Beverly Ford and Aldie while the army was enroute to Pennsylvania. From then until the close of the war Davies was in brigade and divisional command in the Cavalry Corps of the Army of the Potomac; he played a gallant role in the raids on Richmond and in all the actions in the Shenandoah Valley in 1864 and rendered outstanding service in the cavalry operations which culminated in the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox. He was wounded on February 6, 1865, at Hatcher's Run, Va. After the war Davies became a prominent New York attorney and served as Public Administrator of the City of New York, from January 1, 1866, to January 1, 1869, and Assistant District Attorney of the United States for the Southern District of New York, from July, 1870, to January 1, 1873. He then returned to his private law practice.

War Period Signature With Rank: 3 x 1, in ink, H.E. Davies, Jr., Maj. Gen. Light age toning. Very fine.
