Item Details
Description
Guillaume-Mathieu Dumas (1753-1837) French general. Dumas was aide-de-camp to Rochambeau in the American Revolutionary War. He had a share in all the principal engagements that occurred during a period of nearly two years. During the French Revolution, he had to flee a couple times, but eventually returned and was elected to the Council of Ancients. He again had to flee until Napoleon Bonaparte became First Consul in 1799, and returned to organize the army. He helped with administration of the army under Louis XVIII, but at first did not offer his expertise to Napoleon when he returned from Elba, although later he helped to organize the National Guard. 8 ¼” x 12 ½” document signed, “Cte. Dumas”, in French, Misister of War, Paris, September 7, 1810. The document is the formal acknowledgement of the receipt of a letter directing him to carry out his regular duties as well as those of Inspector. Mounted with some age-spotting.
