Medal of Honor Recipient for gallantry in the battle of Franklin, Tennessee where he was wounded

(1828-1902) Born in Cedar Valley, Wayne County, Ohio, he graduated in the West Point class of 1852. His first assignment was on the western frontier where he was engaged in surveying railroads which ultimately led to him fighting Indians. Promoted to captain in 1861, he was on duty at Fort Washita, Indian Territory when the Civil War broke out, and he thus led his men to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Stanley fought in the battle of Wilson's Creek, Missouri, on August 10, 1861, after which President Lincoln appointed him brigadier general. He also saw action at New Madrid; Island No. 10; Iuka; Corinth; Stone's River; Murfreesboro; Tullahoma; Chattanooga; and in the Atlanta campaign. Stanley was appointed major general to rank from November 29, 1862. He was wounded in the battle of Franklin, Tennessee, November 30, 1864, earning himself distinction, and the Medal of Honor for gallantry. While leading a counterattack against the Rebels, General Stanley was wounded in the neck at the same time that he had his horse shot out from under him. Stanley remained in the United States Army after the Civil War, serving throughout the postbellum years on the Indian frontier, commanding in the Dakota Territory, in the Yellowstone Expedition, in Texas where he crushed Indian raids, and in Santa Fe where he commanded the District of New Mexico. He later commanded the Department of Texas from 1884-92. From 1893-98 he was governor of the Soldiers' Home in Washington, D.C. General Stanley was interred at the United States Soldiers' and Airmen's Home, National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. His only son, David Sheridan Stanley, named after his friend General Philip H. Sheridan, and five of his grandsons would all graduate from The United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.

Signature with Rank: 4 1/4 x 2, in ink, D.S. Stanley, Major Genl. Comes with a 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, antique silver print (circa 1900) photograph of General Stanley in uniform.
