From Headquarters Army of the United States

5 1/4 x 3 1/2, with imprint at upper left, Headquarters Army Of The United States. Postmarked, Washington, D.C., Feb. 24, 6 A.M., with 2 cents red/brown George Washington postage stamp. (A57-effective date October 1, 1883). Addressed to Mr. Wilmer Moore, No. 20 Cane Street, Atlanta, Ga. Partial circular date stamped on the reverse, Atlanta, Ga., Feb. 25, 1885, Recd.,12 P.M., with a docket in pencil, "Sheridan," presumably written by the recipient. The envelope is not addressed by Sheridan himself, but most likely was written by one of his aides. The time period fits as Sheridan was appointed Commanding General of the U.S. Army in 1884, and he was probably in Washington, D.C. on the date this cover was mailed. An interesting footnote about Mr. Moore is that he received an envelope sent to him by General Winfield S. Hancock at about the same time as the Sheridan correspondence. [an item I recently sold]. Although I have not been able to find out any information about Mr. Wilmer Moore, one can fairly speculate that he might have been someone connected to, known by, or of some other importance to have received correspondence from two of the highest ranking Generals in the U.S. Army, General Philip H. Sheridan and General Winfield S. Hancock, within a matter of a few days. Light age toning and wear.

General Philip H. Sheridan: (1831-88) A prominent Civil War commander, he graduated in the West Point class of 1853. Appointed brigadier general of volunteers, on September 13, 1862, and major general, on March 16, 1863. He fought in the battles of Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, the Chattanooga campaign, Missionary Ridge, Yellow Tavern, Trevilian Station, the 1864 Shenandoah Valley campaign including the battles of Winchester, Fisher's Hill, and Cedar Creek, and in the 1865 Appomattox campaign which resulted in the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia commanded by General Robert E. Lee, to name but a few of his battle honors. General Ulysses S. Grant summed up Sheridan's performance in the final days of the Civil War as, "I believe General Sheridan has no superior as a general, either living or dead, and perhaps not an equal." During the Indian Wars General Sheridan saw much action against the Plains Indians in the 1870's. Upon the retirement of General William T. Sherman in 1884, Sheridan became commanding general of the United States Army.
