Description: SAMUEL K. ZOOK
(1823 - 1863) Union brigadier general who commanded a regiment on the Peninsula, mortally wounded leading his men at Gettysburg. Very rare war-date A.L.S. "S. K. Zook" with initialed postscript as Colonel of the 57th N.Y.V. on N.Y. Quartermaster General's Dept. letterhead, 1p. 4to., New York, Jan. 13, 1862 to Surgeon Gen. S. O. Vanderpoel. Zook mentions that he has learned that Dr. Leach of his regiment has resigned, and that with the consolidation of Col. Weeks' regiment with the 12th N.Y. Vols., Surgeon Burky[?] will be freed for service. That being the case, Zook asks that Burky be appointed Surgeon of his 57th Regiment. He adds in his postscript: "I am here on sick leave - having had another attack of rheumatism". Fine.
