Description:
(1768 - 1854) British Army officer and politician. Commanded cavalry during the Peninsular War, established superiority over the French at Sahagún and Benavente, where he defeated the elite chasseurs of the French Imperial Guard. During the Hundred Days he led the charge of the heavy cavalry against Comte d'Erlon's column at the Battle of Waterloo. At the end of the battle he lost part of one leg to a cannonball. Good content A.L.S., 2pp., 8vo., [London?], June 10, 1831 to a fellow general inquiring if the man had written to Sir George Bingham to express his admiration for Bingham's 'zeal and decision, upon the occasion of the late outrages, without waiting for a formal order. This is as it should be. I Love Soldiers of that character...' Fine. At this time, Bingham was commanding the Cork District in Ireland - a time when riots fomented by the Catholic emancipation debates was aggravated by agrarian crime, famine, and pestilence.
