(1826-1901) Born at Tecumseh, Michigan, he attended the University of Michigan. When the Mexican War began, Pittman served as a member of the "Brady Guard," the "Grayson Guard," and the well known "Detroit Light Guard," and in 1847, he enlisted and served in the 1st Michigan Volunteers and was appointed adjutant of the regiment. In 1861, when President Lincoln sent out his call for volunteers, Pittman and others were summoned by Governor Austin Blair to organize State Troops for the Union war effort with General Alpheus S. Williams in charge, and Pittman serving as one of his staff officers with the rank of colonel. In the fall of 1861, a School of Instruction was established at Fort Wayne with Colonel Pittman in command and he organized, trained and equipped many of the Michigan troops who left Detroit to go off and fight in the Civil War. The following winter he was appointed Inspector General of Michigan Troops and was commissioned Brigadier General on the staff of Governor Blair and went with the governor to different parts of the field. In the summer of 1862, he was detailed to organize the 17th Michigan Infantry. After that he became a member of the Michigan State Military Board. In 1865, accompanying the governor, he went to Washington City to attend the "Grand Review" of the Union troops. With the war now ended, Pittman resigned his military commission and returned home to have an active business and civil service career which included being appointed as one of the trustees for the Michigan Asylum for the Insane, Inspector for the Detroit House of Correction, and the Superintendent of Police.

Signature With Title: 4 x 1 1/2, in ink, "James E. Pittman" written above the title of Supt. of Police. Light age toning and wear.
