Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a fantastic Confederate autograph! This signature is from the famous Confederate General Richard Stoddert Ewell(1817-1872). He was born in Gerogetown in the District of Columbia on February 8th 1817. Ewell had an honorable career as Captain of the 1st Dragoons during his pre-Civil War service to his country. Ewell was a West pointer and was in Command of a Division of the Army of Northern Virginia. He lost his leg from battle wounds at the Battle of Groveton. He fought on after he recovered and defended the capitol of Richmond until the evacuation. He passed away on January 25th 1872 in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The autograph is beautifully framed and matted in a wooden frame that measures 12-1/2 inches by 14-1/2 inches in overall size. It also has a printed biography of his service. The paper that the autograph is on measures 8 inches by 5 inches in the matting. The autograph is light as many of his are. What is special about the autograph is that it is on a Confederate printed document. The document has the heading of the Headquarters of the Department of Richmond (and he was commander of the defenses at the time) and it is dated March 9th 1865. This is a letter allowing 2 paroled prisoners of war to 30 days of furlough. One thing that is interesting is that by the time those 30 days were over, the war had ended. That makes this one of the last autographs of Ewell before the War ended. It is ready to hang on the wall of your relic room.
