CMAG is also featuring historical letters including one from President-elect John Kennedy on Senate letterhead, a Gerald Ford autograph, a signed government document bearing the signatures of President Ronald Reagan, House Speaker Tip O'Neill and Senate President Pro Tempore Strom Thurmond. CMAG also has a Jimmy Doolittle letter when the former General worked for Mutual of Omaha. There is also a category of militaria at CMAG where you'll find a sabre designed by George Patton -- before he was a General. As a Second Lieutenant he designed the last U. S. Calvary Sabre and this is one of the 23,000 made. It's a pretty rare item as few remain today. There are also pen and ink drawings from sailors aboard the Battleship New Jersey during the Second World War and these drawings are also featured in a published book which establishes their provenance and authenticity.
CMAG has eight different spaces inside King Richard's and soon will be expanding into two more spaces that will be a fine art gallery. Watch for new arrivals from Don Rickles' estate.
