Partly-printed certificate featuring pre-printed facsimile signatures of President Lincoln and Secretary of War Stanton, one page, 13.5 x 10.5, December 15, 1864. In part: “The President’s Thanks and Certificate of Honorable Service To Corporal John H. Snouffer 133d Regt Ohio Nt. Gd. Vol. Infty: Whereas the President of the United States has made the following Executive Order, returning Thanks to the Ohio Volunteer[s] for One Hundred Days, to wit: Executive Mansion, Washington City, September 10, 1864. The term of One Hundred Days, for which the National Guard of Ohio volunteered having expired, the President directs an official acknowledgment of their patriotism and valuable service during the recent campaign. The term of service of their enlistment was short, but distinguished by memora[ble] events in the Valley of the Shenandoah, on the Peninsula, in the operations of the James River, around Petersburg and Richmond, in the battle of Monoca[cy,] in the Intrenchments of Washington, and in other important service.” In very good condition, with overall creasing and soiling, a tear to the top, presumably trimmed edges, and chipping and wear to the old frame.
