H. H. KAVANAUGH SIGNED SLIP METHODIST BISHOP ARRESTED CIVIL WAR

$95.00

Description

Hubbard H. KAVANAUGH SIGNED SLIP, "H. H. Kavanaugh, Louisville Kentucky, May 17th 1880", 4.5 x 2, by the Bishop, Methodist Episcopal Church South who was put under military arrest during the U. S. Civil War by General Irvin McDowell. He was later released upon taking the Oath of Allegiance to the United States of American, disclaiming and renouncing allegiance to any other Government. It turned out that an informant committed perjury and was himself later punished for making false charges. It seems that the "South" in the churches name was misconstrued as referring to loyalty to the Confederacy but in fact was just referring to a location of the church in the "South" of the U.S., not connected with the States at war against the United States, and with the cause of that war. In fine condition, with some age toning and tiny stain right edge.
