A John Sedgewick signed 3.25" x 1.75" slip with signature. Signed "John Sedgewick/ Maj General" at the bottom in ink. In fine condition.

John Sedgwick (September 13, 1813 – May 9, 1864) was a military officer and Union Army general during the American Civil War. Under his command, the VI Corps played an important role in the Chancellorsville Campaign by engaging Confederate troops at the Second Battle of Fredericksburg and the Battle of Salem Church. Sedgwick was killed by a sharpshooter at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House on May 9, 1864, making him and Major Generals James B. McPherson, Joseph K. Mansfield, and John F. Reynolds the highest-ranking Union officers to be killed in the war. He is remembered for an ironic remark among his last words: "They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance."
