4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Lot of 2:

Corbin, Henry Clark (1842-1909). Born in rural Monroe Township, Clermont County, OH, (near Batavia, the county seat), Corbin did not enlist immediately when the Civil War broke out. He was teaching and studying law, but by the second summer, he enlisted, becoming a "lifer." He volunteered as 2nd Lieut. in the 83rd OH Infy, transferring to the 79th a month later. In Nov. 1863 he was commissioned major in the 14th USCT, eventually achieving promotions to Lt. Col. and Colonel of the regiment, and receiving a brevet in the omnibus awards of March 1865. (He also received brevets for "gallant and meritorious service" at Decatur, AL [Major] and Nashville, TN [Lt. Col.].) He mustered out in March 1866, and, deciding he liked military life, was commissioned 2nd Lieut. in the U.S. 2nd Infy., and promoted to Captain of the 38th, a Buffalo Soldier unit, in May of that year. He was appointed to the staff of R.B. Hayes in 1877, and continued on Garfield's staff. Corbin was with Garfield both when he was shot and in New Jersey when he died. He was promoted to major in the A.G. Dept. in 6/80, Lt. Col. in 6/89, can Col. 5/96. He was promoted to Adjutant General of the U.S. Army with the rank of full Brigadier General in 1898. He achieved Major General in 1900, and Lieut. Gen. in 1906. He commanded the Division of the Philippines in 1904. He retired in 1906 and died three years later in Washington, DC. This cdv of a young Corbin has the backmark of Hoag & Quick, Cincinnati, OH. Signed on front H.C. Corbin, U.S.A.

Davis, Henry Greene (1818-1898). A bit older than the average volunteer, Davis enlisted in August 1861 at the age of 43. He was commissioned 1st Lieut. into the 29th IN Infy. He served that unit for his three years, and was commissioned into F&S of the 101st USCT as Lt. Col. He was awarded brevets as Colonel and Brig. Gen. in March 1865. He mustered out in Jan. 1866. Signed on front Very truly yours / H.G. Davis / Capt & PPM / Chatta. Tenn. First two lines on the albumen and a bit light, second two lines in margin and still dark. Backmark of A.S. Morse, photographer for the Dept. of the Cumberland.
