Charles Johnson, son of Andrew Johnson, ALS to Col. Mulligan, 1862
Autograph Letter Signed, 1p, 4to, Clarksville, Tennessee, April 28th, 1862, to Col. James A. Mulligan of the 23rd IL Vols (the Irish Brigade), asking for clothing and supplies for the brother of a friend who was on the Confederate side and in the Camp Douglas prison. Age toned, edge tears, some minor paper loss not affecting anything, mounting strip on verso.
Charles Johnson (1830 - 1863), the oldest son of President Andrew Johnson, was a surgeon in the US Vols during the Civil War. He was also an alcoholic. He died in April 1863 from injuries incurred from a fall from his horse.
James A. Mulligan was colonel of the 23rd Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment in the Union Army during the American Civil War. He was fatally wounded during the Second Battle of Kernstown, near Winchester, Virginia on July 24th, 1864. Mulligan's soldiers attempted to carry him to safety, but the unyielding Confederate fire made this an impossible task and he gave them the famous order to: "LAY ME DOWN AND SAVE THE FLAG." Mulligan's men reluctantly complied. Confederate soldiers captured Mulligan and carried him to a nearby home, where he died two days later.
