GENERAL SICKLES-Daniel Edgar Sickles
(October 20, 1819 – May 3, 1914)
a colorful and controversial American politician, Union general in the American Civil War, and diplomat.
As an antebellum New York politician, Sickles was involved in a number of public scandals, most notably the killing of his wife’s lover, Philip Barton Key II, son of Francis Scott Key. He was acquitted with the first use of temporary insanity as a legal defense in U.S. history. He became one of the most prominent political generals of the Civil War. At the Battle of Gettysburg, he insubordinately moved his III Corps to a position in which it was virtually destroyed, an action that continues to generate controversy; despite this, he would eventually be awarded the Medal of Honor in 1897. His combat career ended at Gettysburg when his leg was struck by cannon fire.
After the war, Sickles commanded military districts during Reconstruction, served as U.S. Minister to Spain, and eventually returned to the U.S. Congress, where he made important legislative contributions to the preservation of the Gettysburg Battlefield.
Prince Philippe d’Orléans, Count of Paris
(Louis Philippe Albert; 24 August 1838 – 8 September 1894)
was the grandson of Louis Philippe I, King of the French. He was Comte de Paris, and was a claimant to the French throne from 1848 until his death.A historian, journalist and outspoken democrat, the Count of Paris volunteered to serve as a Union Army officer in the American Civil War along with his younger brother, the Duke of Chartres. He was appointed as an assistant adjutant general with the rank of captain and served under the name of Philippe d’Orléans, the Count of Paris. He served on the staff of the commander of the Army of the Potomac, Major General George McClellan, for nearly a year. He distinguished himself during the unsuccessful Peninsular Campaign. His history of that war is considered a standard reference work. In 1864 he married his paternal first cousin Princess Marie Isabelle d’Orléans (1848–1919), Infanta of Spain. She was daughter of Infanta Luisa Fernanda of Spain and Prince Antoine, Duke of Montpensier (1824–1890), the youngest son of Louis-Philippe of France and Maria Amalia of Naples and Sicily.
Prince Philippe d’Orléans, Duke of Orléans
(24 August 1869 – 28 March 1926)
Orléanist claimant to the throne of France from 1894 to 1926.
In February 1890 he visited Paris in violation of the law of exile of 1886. He offered to do his military service as required by law. Instead he was arrested and confined in the Conciegerie. He was sentenced to two years in prison at Clarvaux, but was released after a few months and expelled back to Switzerland.
Prior to his imprisonment in France, Philippe had been unofficially engaged to his first-cousin Princess Marguerite of Orléans. The engagement was cancelled when Philippe’s involvement with the Australian opera singer Nellie Melba was revealed. Although they had lived apart for some years, Melba was married to Charles Nesbitt Armstrong. Armstrong filed for divorce from Melba on the grounds of adultery, naming Philippe as co-respondent; the case was eventually dropped.
In September 1890 Philippe accompanied his father on a two month trip to the United States and Canada. They visited the battlefields of the Civil War in which his father had fought, as well as Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Richmond, Virginia, New York, and Quebec.
In December 1890 Philippe tried unsuccessfully to serve in the Russian Army. In March 1893 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society

JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER SIGNED LETTER AND ENVELOPE
John Davison Rockefeller
was born July 8, 1839 on a farm in Richmond, New York. He was the second child of six born to William Avery and Eliza Davison Rockefeller. The family lived modestly, John’s father being a “pitch man” charging up to $25.00 for treatments for cancers. His father traveled and was gone for months at time and John’s upbringing fell mainly on his mother, who was very religious and disciplined. She taught her children to work, to save and to give to charities. After moving to Moravia and later to Owego, New York, the family moved to Ohio in 1853. They bought a house near Cleveland, in Strongsville, Ohio and John attended Central High School in Cleveland. John left high school in 1855 and took a six-month business course at Folsom Mercantile College. He completed the course in three months and began searching for a job as a bookkeeper or clerk in Cleveland. In 1855, business in Cleveland was adverse and John had trouble finding a job. After six weeks, Hewitt & Tuttle, a small company of produce shippers and commission merchants employed him as an assistant bookkeeper. Rockefeller worked hard and impressed his employers, arranging complicated transportation deals moving freight by railroad, canal and lake boats. He began to trade for his own account and his combination of caution; precision and resolve brought him to the attention of the Cleveland business community.

AUTOGRAPHED LETTER SIGNED 12/04/1895
MEASURES 8 X 10 INCHES
EXCELLENT CONDITION AND EXTREMELY RARE!
THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT
PLACE OF BIRTH: Homer, Licking County, Ohio
FAMILY BACKGROUND: Victoria was born fifth among seven children to Reuben Buckman (“Buck”) Claflin and Roxanna (Hummel) Claflin. Buck was a gristmill operator, but had a get-rich-quick streak that led him to gambling, scheming and lawsuits. Roxanna was fiery tempered, quick-witted and inclined toward clairvoyance. She brought her children often to camp revivals in the woods by traveling preachers, especially Rev. Lyman Beecher (father of Victoria’s later adversary), and would get caught up in religious ecstasy, whirling and speaking in tongues.
EDUCATION: Victoria was mostly self-taught.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Victoria inherited much of her mother’s fiery personality, and was imitating preachers at a young age. She also showed signs of clairvoyance. At the age of 10, Victoria had visions in which Demosthenes (a prominent Greek statesman and orator of 4th century Athens) appeared as her patron saint. Her sister Tennessee (“Tennie”) also shared the gift of “second sight.” Their father saw his opportunity, changing his name to “Dr. R.B. Claflin, American King of Cancers,” and taking his daughters on the road as psychic healers, and holding seances, complete with rapping sounds and moving furniture. She spent most of her youth traveling with her family’s medicine show, telling fortunes, selling patent medicines, and performing a spiritualist act with her sister Tennessee.

“READ ABOUT THE MEMPHIS MAFIA BELOW, THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS PROVIDED BY BLACKSHEEP.COM
THE MEMPHIS MAFIA”
The Memphis Mafia is the nickname given to the group of men who were with Elvis Presley everyday from 1956 until the day he died on August 16, 1977.
There were eight original members; although at times, they numbered between four and thirteen. The core group of original guys (Sonny West, Red West, Billy Smith, Marty Lacker, and Lamar Fike) was considered to be the closest to Elvis and became his confidants throughout the years.
The name “The Memphis Mafia” was bestowed on the group in an unusual way. In the early 1960’s, Elvis and the guys frequently wore black mohair suits. One afternoon in Las Vegas on a two-week pleasure trip, Elvis and the guys went to meet someone at the Riviera Hotel.
Elvis and the guys usually stayed at The Sahara Hotel. Their normal routine for Las Vegas was to stay up all night and sleep during the day. Elvis and the guys normally started their day about 5 p.m. However, on that day, the appointment at the Riviera Hotel was at 1 p.m. Four hours earlier than they normally got up.
There was a crowd of people in front of the Riviera Hotel when the two big black limousines pulled up. Elvis and about ten guys, all wearing black mohair suits and sunglasses, got out of the limousines. Because they normally didn’t get much in the sun during the day, their skins were pale white. It was a scary sight to behold, and someone in the crowd yelled: “Who are they, The Mafia?”
It just so happened that there was a reporter from a Las Vegas newspaper there. So, the next day, a story ran about what she saw. She dubbed them “The Memphis Mafia.” Elvis loved his guys being called that, and the name stuck.
The guys became known throughout the world as “The Memphis Mafia.” Like the real mafia, there was always a code of silence within the group while Elvis was alive. Throughout all the years of his life, they protected Elvis’ name and image.
Now is the first time that this many of the original members of The Memphis Mafia have gotten together to relate to you, the public, what those many years with Elvis Presley were really like. Today, The Memphis Mafia is comprised of the following men:
