About Philip Sheridan

Major General Philip Sheridan is portrayed on the center of the note. Sheridan was a career United States Army officer and one of the most important Union generals during the Civil War. Sheridan's cavalry vigorously pursued Lee's struggling army in 1865 and was instrumental in forcing Lee's surrender at Appomattox, effectively ending the war. Sheridan died in 1888 shortly after his promotion to General of the Army.



PCGS Population: 4; none finer.
