Civil War Veteran's G.A.R. Altoona, Pa. Post # 62 Memorial ; Rare Ink Calligraphy Military Record For Family.

Rare Ink Calligraphy Memorial For a Civil War Veteran From Post # 62 in Altoona, Pa. Dated May 12,1892

"""""" James B. Ross """""

A Civil War Veteran From 3 Pennsylvania Regiments !!!

Served in 7th Pa. Vol. Regt. / 101st Pa. / 131st Pa. Co "J" / Co. "A" / Co. "D" --------------------------------------------------------------------------- WOW !!!

I checked the soldiers and sailors list of names and the only thing that it didn't know which Company that James B. Ross served in the 101st regt. It was Co. "A". Evidently the GAR Records were from his truthfully impressive membership records. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------Veterans Compassion Reads ;

Who has been recently transferred from our ranks to that great permanent camp from the river death. --------------------------------------------------------------etc,--------

His Congenial Companionship as a Member of this Post, his True Manhood, his Faithful Citizenship, all have given us Bright Examples of Which it were well to Emulate; while his Sudden Death tears a Void in our Ranks that can Never be Filled. Signed by 3 GAR Dignitaries from the Post, and 1 adjutant , probably from the state level. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a Rare example of late 19th century Calligraphy and is in good overall condition . (some wood acid bled through as a stripe at center name section, and the bottom 3/4 inch shows some old water staining) The Document is 17 wide X 20 inches tall.

The Original Oak Frame is 22 X 25 inches and is in mint condition , as is the back boards and center stretcher board. I added a acid free back board to stop the acid staining which was coming through after 110 years of exposure.
