Ambrose Burnside 2x Signed Railroad Stock Certificate


Indianapolis & Vincennes Railroad Company Stock certificate signed by Ambrose Burnside as President "A.E. Burnside" on the front, and again on the verso as a witness "A.E. Burnside". 10.25" x 5.5". Dated "December 3, 1867" and "Issued as No. 52 for "two hundred + fifty" shares. Accompanied by a lovely engraving of Burnside, 5.25" x 7".


Ambrose Everett Burnside (1824-1881) commanded his brigade at the First Battle of Bull Run and took over the command of his troops after Brigadier General David Hunter was wounded. Burnside then commanded the North Carolina expeditionary force or the coast division. Burnside was eventually offered the command of the Army of the Potomac after the Peninsula Campaign in which Major General George B. McClellan failed. Burnside led the right wing in the Army of the Potomac when the Battle of South Mountain began. He also served in Fredericksburg, East Tennessee, the Crater, and the Overland Campaign. During the Battle of the Crater, Burnside received orders not to use the division of black troops just a few hours before the infantry attack. Black troops had been trained for the mission; without them, Burnside had to use untrained troops instead.


After the war, Burnside worked at several industrial and railroad directorships after the war including the Martinsville Railroad, Vincennes and Indianapolis Railroad. In 1874, he became a Rhode Island senator, eventually being reelected in 1880. He could not serve his full second term because he died in 1881.


This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
