Exceptionally nice little ticket admitting two boys to hear Major Willard I. Bishop, late of the 10th Massachusetts Infantry. Bishop was promoted four times during the war, having enlisted as a Sergeant. On May 5th of 1864, he was wounded in action during the battle of The Wilderness. Ten months later, he received a brevet to the rank of Major.


Condition of the ticket is excellent. It would frame up beautifully! The purchaser of this neat little piece will receive a copy of Bishop’s record, which includes a photocopy of his Civil War CDV. Alas, I do not own the CDV or this ticket would not be for sale!
