Here is your chance to own an authentic signature of the most famous of all Confederate Generals, Robert E. Lee. This is an authentic CDV card image of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. It is a nice clear from-life image of the general in his fine suit of clothes. This is one of the images that was taken after the Civil War. It shows the stately looking Lee and this image was taken by Mathew Brady in February of 1866. Lee served with distinction in every post that he ever held. To this day, he is the only man to Graduate West Point Military Academy without getting a single demerit. Lee was offered the Command of the Union forces but declined the position so he could fight with his home state of Virginia and the Confederacy. What makes this image so special, is that the front of the card has the superb, vividly clear ink signature of General Lee. At the bottom of the card it has the photographer marking of Boude & Miley with the Lexington, Virginia location. It has the very neat back mark of the "Stonewall Art Gallery". This was made at the same time as the left oblique pose used for the composite of the faculty and staff of Washington College in 1867-68. He signs it in his classic style "R.E. Lee" in dark brown ink and as you can see the signature is relatively large in size. The card stock itself measures 2-1/2 inches wide and is 4 inches tall. On the back of the card it has the wonderful inscription that reads "To Miss Tula Daniel/ From her/ Friend./ Seth Shepard/ Brenham Texas May 29th 1869."Shepard was a Confederate veteran and future Federal judge. Ms. Daniel, of Harrodsburg, Kentucky was the daughter of a prominent attorney. Her brother was killed at Chickamauga. Shepard graduated in 1868 and likely asked Lee to personally sign this memento. It remained in the possession of descendants of the Daniel Family until purchased in 2015. This wonderful piece of history came from the collection of Dr. Donald Hopkins who authored a book on General Lee. Here is your chance to own an authentic signature of the most famous of all Confederate Generals, Robert E. Lee.
