With thanks for your service as Commissioner of Internal Revenue under Grant. You recommended abolishing income tax. Thanks for trying!

I commend you for your many years of service in the Army. During your career in the army (1844 to 1868), you advanced from Brevet 2nd Lieutenant to Major of Cavalry. During the Civil War, you attained the rank of Major General of Volunteers, and received the Brevet (Honorary) rank of Major General, U.S. Army for your wartime service. I think it is most unfortunate that your fine record out West in 1864 was virtually ignored. It would seem that the War Department only remembered your less than stellar performance as Commander of the Cavalry of the Army of the Potomac from 1863 to 1864 when you were relieved and sent west. Had you exhibited the aggresiveness and effective leadership in the East in 1863 that you later exhibited in the Western Theatre in 1864 (Especially at the Battle of Westport), you might have attained lasting fame and a higher rank in the Regulars. Unfortunately, you were only offered a Lieutenant Colonelcy in the Infantry after the war, and turned it down to remain in the Cavalry as a Major. You later resigned from the Army when you could no longer stand being out ranked by officers who were junior to you during the war. I can appreciate the frustration you endured. You had your faults, but you are to be commended for your faithful service to the Army and the Republic. Rest in peace Brevet Major General Pleasanton

He was not always successful, and had his faults and flaws, but he was a good organizer and furthered the careers of many of the Union's most daring, dashing and motivated cavalry leaders.
