Rawlins, John A.:

SPEECH OF MAJOR GEN'L JOHN A RAWLINS, CHIEF OF STAFF U. S.A. GENERAL GRANT'S VIEWS IN HARMONY WITH CONGRESS. AUTHENTIC EXPOSITION OF HIS PRINCIPLES. PUBLISHED BY THE UNION REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE, WASHINGTON, D.C.

Chronicle Print, [Washington: (1868?)] 16pp, caption title [as issued]. Disbound. Very Good. "General Rawlins has been in the closest relations with his great Chief, the Republican Presidential nominee, ever since the war began, and knows the opinions and policy of General Grant better probably than any other person. Hence the significance which attaches to this speech, made at Galena, Illinois, June 21st, 1867, on the occasion of General Rawlins visiting that city, his former residence. It was undoubtedly prepared with General Grant's knowledge and submitted to him before delivery." Rawlins assures his audience that General Grant, whose political views were still not widely known, supports Congressional Reconstruction, including continuing military rule of the seceded States, civil rights for the freedmen, and passage of the pending Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution. FIRST EDITION. OCLC 10682793 [12]. Not in Eberstadt, Decker, LCP.
