An Ambrose Burnside signed 3" x 1.75" card.  Signed in ink, "A.E. Burnside/ Maj General" In fine condition.

Ambrose Everett Burnside (May 23, 1824 – September 13, 1881) was an American army officer and politician who became a senior Union general in the Civil War and three times Governor of Rhode Island, as well as being a successful inventor and industrialist. He is mainly remembered for two disastrous defeats, at Fredericksburg and the Battle of the Crater. Although an inquiry cleared him of blame in the latter case, he never regained credibility as an army commander. His spectacular growth of whiskers became known as "sideburns," deriving from the two parts of his surname.

An Oliver Otis Howard signed card. Signed "Oliver Otis Howard/ Brig. General/ US Army" and dated October 12th, 1889. The card is 3.5" x 2" and in fine condition. Oliver Otis Howard (November 8, 1830 – October 26, 1909) was a career United States Army officer and a Union general in the Civil War. As a brigade commander in the Army of the Potomac, Howard lost his right arm while leading his men against Confederate forces at the Battle of Fair Oaks/Seven Pines in June 1862, an action which later earned him the Medal of Honor. As a corps commander, he suffered two major defeats at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg in May and July 1863, but recovered from the setbacks as a successful corps and later army commander in the Western Theater.
