LIEUTENANT COLONEL ZACHARY TAYLOR ACKNOWLEDGES ORDERS FOR HIM TO TAKE PART IN A COURT MARTIAL TO BE HELD IN CINCINNATI, OHIO
TAYLOR, ZACHARY. (1784-1850). Twelfth President of the United States (1849-1850); General on the American frontier and Mexican War hero; died in office after serving only 16 months. Intriguing content, boldly written, early, Autograph Letter Signed, “Z. Taylor, Lt. Col. 1st Regiment U.S. Infantry”. Full page, quarto. ‘Louisville, Kentucky, 10th of May 1826’. Very fine condition. To “ Colonel R. Jones, Adjunt General U.S. Army”. Taylor writes:
“Sir, I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of Orders No 25 detailing me as a member of a Gener[al] Court Martial to convene at Cincinnati, Ohio, on the 7th June next.”
Just a fine example for the collector of Presidential letters.
