Description
One Civil War letter (ALS) by James A. Garfield, future President and then major general in the Union Army, to Colonel Lionel C. Sheldon, criticizing the President's [Abraham Lincoln's] conduct of the war and noting that "Halleck is as cold and apparently heartless as a stone about the war, McClellan will never do any more than Buell did - and nearly every man that had any positive opinions about pushing the war is either without any command or is where he can do nothing." Washington, 2 Nov. 1862. Also an extra edition of The Chronicle, 21 Sept. 1881, re death of Garfield and an invitation to the "Obsequies of the Late President Garfield," to be held in San Francisco, 26 Sept. 1881.
