ALEXANDER McDOWELL McCOOK The Civil War Union commander, moderately-blamed for the disastrous battle of Chickamauga, signs his name in black ink Manuscript letter signed: "Alexander McDowell McCoook" in faded black ink. In full: Sir, I have the honor to transmit herewith Bi-monthly return of deceased soldiers for the months of January & February 1873.

Very respectfully, Your obedient servant. Army officer, best known for his service as a Union general in the American Civil War.

After graduating from West Point in 1852, McCook fought against the Apaches and Utes in New Mexico from 1853 through 1857, later returning to West Point to serve as an infantry tactics instructor. At the start of the Civil War, he was appointed colonel of the 1st Ohio Infantry in April 1861, serving in the Washington defenses and seeing action in the First Battle of Bull Run; eventually working his way up commander of the Army of Ohio, McCook fought in the Battle of Shiloh and the Battle of Perryville. The reformed Army of the Cumberland furthermore fought in the Battle of Stones River and at Chickamauga, both which were disasters, and for which McCook was court-martialed and partially blamed for, eventually being relieved of duty.

It was a whole year before he was given another command, that of the "Defenses of the Potomac River and Washington" when put into jeopardy by Confederate General Jubal Early, culminating in the Battle of Fort Stevens, after which, he was again left without command. After resigning from volunteer service after the war, McCook eventually worked his way up as a commissioned brigadier general in 1890, even participating in investigating commission of the United States Department of War during the Spanish-American War.
