Franklin Job Printing Office,, Greenfield [MA]:, 1866. Original printed deep blue wrappers, with title, 'The Federal Union Gold Mining Company,' lettered in gilt. Near Fine. The property was located "on both sides of South Clear Creek, at Colona Bar, in the Territory of Colorado." The Federal Union Mining Company was organized by a group of Eastern investors including A.W. Hoyt, a civil engineer, Elisha Wells, a Massachusetts businessman, and General Napoleon Bonaparte Buford, at the end of the Civil War. In 1865, Hoyt sent Buford, a Union general who had been prominent in the Tennessee Campaigns, to visit the mining property of Jeb and Erskine McClellan in Clear Creek County, Colorado, seven miles from Black Hawk. Hoyt instructed Buford to check out the mines "working value" and get the McClellan brothers to sell their claims. Buford visited Colorado and returned East in late 1865 with bond to pay for the claim. In 1866 the company was formally organized.
