Civil War General William T. Sherman Signed And Framed Display Authentic:
Up for sale in this sale is a framed and matted display with an AUTHENTIC cut signature of General William Tecumseh Sherman along with a striking full-length seated pose engraving of the Civil War General in uniform.
The gold color antiqued frame is roughly 9 5/8inches by 13 5/8inches.
As stated in the condition information, the frame is an antiqued gold color frame withblack silk textured matting. The pictures don't do justice to the matting, it's tuly amazing and creates a wonderful display.
The signature is bold, thepaperand ink are consistent with age as shown in the pictures. Actually the signature ismore crisp on this one than the one I have hanging on my office wall. The ones in my office all match the same frame and matting which is why I'm selling this one with a nicer signaturevs. the other.I'm pretty torn in selling this piece, but decided to sell it and reduce the number of duplicate signatures and expand in other areas.
I guarantee the signature to be authentic and will provide a money back lifetime guarantee on the signature (minus shipping charges). This is guaranteed provided the signature is not removed from the frame or altered in any way. I state that only because I've heard horror stories of folks switching out the cut signatures and returning a fake. This is 100% the real deal, the slant, style, flow, ink, paper, age, etc.. are all consistent with PSA/DNA and JSA authenticated exemplars which I have in my personal collection.
If requested, I can provide a written certificate of authenticity (COA) attesting to the above.

William Tecumseh Sherman (February 8, 1820 – February 14, 1891) was an American soldier, businessman, educator and author. He served as a General in the Union Army during the American Civil War (1861–65), for which he received recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy as well as criticism for the harshness of the "scorched earth" policies that he implemented in conducting total war against the Confederate States. Military historian B. H. Liddell Hart famously declared that Sherman was "the first modern general".
Sherman served under General Ulysses S. Grant in 1862 and 1863 during the campaigns that led to the fall of the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River and culminated with the routing of the Confederate armies in the state of Tennessee. In 1864, Sherman succeeded Grant as the Union commander in the western theater of the war. He proceeded to lead his troops to the capture of the city of Atlanta, a military success that contributed to the re-election of President Abraham Lincoln. Sherman's subsequent march through Georgia and the Carolinas further undermined the Confederacy's ability to continue fighting. He accepted the surrender of all the Confederate armies in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida in April 1865.
When Grant assumed the U.S. presidency in 1869, Sherman succeeded him as Commanding General of the Army (1869–83). As such, he was responsible for the U.S. Army's engagement in the Indian Wars over the next 15 years, in the western United States. He steadfastly refused to be drawn into politics and in 1875 published his Memoirs, one of the best-known first-hand accounts of the Civil War.
