Click on an image to enlarge
This is a fantastic piece! It is a hand written correspondence from Confederate General Daniel Ruggles to Major George G. Garner who was serving as General Ruggles' Assistant Adjutant General. This document is actually one of the ones included in the Official Records. The heading is headquarters of the 2nd Division of the Army of the Mississippi in Corinth, Mississippi. It was originally dated March of 1862 but has the "April" correction, possibly from the compilation of the records. The top part tells Garner that the entire division "... is included and that preparation for the morning of the 4th inst. will include that brigade. At the bottom of the document he signs it "Daniel Ruggles / Brig. General C.S.A. Comdg. Div.". Below that, Ruggles adds notes about two of the artillery batteries and he signs it again with his rank. SO you are getting two fine Ruggles autographs. The piece is written on fine blue reed paper that measures 7 inches by 3 inches in size. Daniel Ruggles (January 31, 1810 - June 1, 1897) was born in Barre, Massachusetts. He graduated from West Point with the class of 1833. He served in the 2nd Seminole War as well as the Mexican War. On August 9, 1861, he was promoted to Brigadier General. He is most famous for his actions at the Battle of Shiloh. He amassed a fierce line of Confederate artillery that would be forever known as the "Ruggles Line" that was firing into the area known as the "Hornet's Nest". He died in Fredericksburg, Virginia on June 1st 1897 and is buried there. The autograph is accompanied by a printed biography of his service as well as a modern Xerox image of the General. The letter paper that the autographs are on measures 8 inches by 10 inches in overall size. It is a fine piece of history!
