    An especially attractive and intricate $500 bond signed as President by Henry A. DuPont. DuPont was a graduate of West Point and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his service in the Civil War. In 1875 he was persuaded by his father to leave the military in favor of management at the family's powder firm. Here he was placed in charge of negotiations with officials of other firms and arranging transportation of products by rail. Through this connection he was elected President of the Wilmington and Northern Railroad in 1879.
