    1851. unbound. 1 page, 8.25 x 6 inches, removed from an 1851 Yale yearbook, the year he graduated, to fellow classmate, staunch unionist and future judge Marcus Lyon, in part: "...I very much regret that our acquaintance was not formed at an earlier period of our College course. In accordance with the hand of Fate you were not here during the 1st year. I was away the 2nd...The time is near at hand when we must bid farewell to College and to each other. But - I trust we shall occasionally meet in after life and learn how the world has used the other." With the inclusion of a second signature on the back. Near fine condition. Confederate officer during the Civil War who was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and graduated from Yale University in 1851. He joined the elite Washington Artillery on May 26, 1861, and by late September had been elected 1st Lt. of the 4th Company of that battalion and commanded a section of 12-pounder howitzers at Bull Run. In the defense of Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg in December 1862, Battles was severely wounded in the arm while serving as a staff officer to General Robert Ransom. He returned to active duty that spring, however, and continued service as a section commander up until being captured at Petersburg on April 2, 1865. Imprisoned at Old Capital Prison in Washington, D.C., he was released on July 18th 1865.

The name "Achevah" means friendship or love in Hebrew. This club consisted primarily of Jewish students from Yale, plus a few local friends. The group held picnics and parties. An early member and host of meetings was Israel Koskoff, proprietor of a produce store, and member of the New Haven Koskoff family, many of whom became musicians, lawyers and judges. At a meeting at the Koskoff residence, the club gathered to hear the piano playing of Israel's son, Reuven Koskoff, a 12 year old prodigy and student at the Yale School of Music. The original group of young men continued meeting at the Koskoff home each Sunday night for dinner and entertainment for several years. Later they would meet at the Old Heidelberg Restaurant and then at rooms they rented in a building housing the Hebrew Institute. The last known recorded gathering was a reunion held on November 16, 1962, at the Hotel Taft, New Haven, with 35 members and their wives in attendance. [Heil, Estelle Goldman: "Achevah-- The First Jewish Club at Yale", JEWS IN NEW HAVEN,VOL. IV, Jewish Historical Society of New Haven, CT, pp. 53-61]. Many early members of Achevah became prominent New Haven men: Samuel Campner, the first Jewish mayor of New Haven; Dr. Louis Nahum, president of the Connecticut State Medical Society; Abel [Abe] Cugell, director of the Rosenbaum Tutoring School at Yale; Samuel Alpert, Barnett Berman, Hyman A.

    AUTOGRAPH AND PORTRAIT ALBUM COMPILED BY HENRY BLODGET, A MEMBER OF YALE'S CLASS OF 1848 by [Yale Autograph Book] Blodget, Henry

    [New Haven, CT. 6-1/4" x 8-1/4". [107] manuscript pages, fourteen engraved portraits of faculty and clergy and four views of Yale tipped in. Bound in original half calf [cloth boards detached and worn, lacking backstrip]. First gathering a bit loose but holding, one tipped-in portrait page loose. Title in ink manuscript on first page, "H. Blodget Class Album 1848"; edge lightly chipped. Light toning throughout, scattered foxing. Except as noted, Very Good. This album was compiled by Henry Blodget (1825-1903), Yale Class of 1848, Yale Doctor of Divinity 1872. He spent 40 years as a missionary to China, was one of five missionaries who translated the New Testament into Mandarin, translated about two hundred hymns and other works into Chinese [including an Apology for Christianity for the Emperor of China in 1890]. Blodget carefully planned his album. The early pages were reserved for officers and faculty, often with engravings and inscriptions juxtaposed. President Theodore Woolsey offered an inscription in Greek. Some other faculty signers were chemist Benjamin Silliman, physicist Josiah W. Gibbs, president Jeremy Day, law professor David Daggett, Latin and Literature professor James L. Kingsley, didactic theologian Nathaniel W. Taylor, and the school's first professional librarian, Edward C. Herrick. He set aside leaves for each of his 89 classmates, generally in alphabetical order, securing signed inscriptions from many of them, some quite substantial, many including hometown and date of birth. Other inscriptions are also included by by other Yale graduates from the classes of 1847 through 1851. Pinned to the last two leaves are alumni notices from 1888 and 1889. A few of the classmates noted are Dwight Foster, lawyer, Massachusetts Attorney General and Associate Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court; Isaac S. Newton, lawyer and District Attorney of Chenango County, New York, for two terms; Austin Arnold, who died in 1840 soon after returning from the California Gold Rush; Theodore Winthrop, first Union officer to give his life in the Civil War; Edward P. Abbe, physician and President of the Southern Massachusetts Medical Society from 1880-1881; William Atchison, missionary in China; Samuel E. Baldwin, future Wisconsin lawyer; Henry T. Blake, studied at Yale Law School, lawyer in Bridgeport, Clerk of the Supreme and Superior Courts for Fairfield County; Isaac T. Rathbone, a tutor who died in June 1849 from cholera.

    Autographed Letter Signed by Sharpshooter George S. Tuckerman by (CIVIL WAR) - First United States Sharpshooters

    New Haven, CT, 1851. unbound. 1 page, 8.25 x 6 inches, removed from an 1851 Yale yearbook. Written to fellow classmate, staunch unionist, and future judge Marcus Lyon -- a long salutation ending with the lines: "And now my hearty true friend Lyon - This rough old world we'll soon to try - Let's not its cause with stem good will - And make it fit us easy still. Your friend and Classmate Geo. S. Tuckerman." Faint browning at the edges, but still in near fine condition. An infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Hiram C. Berdan of New York created the elite Sharpshooter Regiment in 1861. During their service, they fought in every Eastern battle up until autumn of 1864, including distinction at Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Atlanta, and Petersburg. Their uniforms were green, rather than the standard blue, and they were not allowed to have brass on any of their buttons. They were considered high-priority kills amongst the Confederate army because they had such high skills and excellent salvageable equipment. George S. Tuckerman, a graduate from Yale in 1851, was one of the very first officers selected into the elite marksman group encompassing the Sharpshooters. He commanded Company D and saw action in every major engagement throughout the war.
