This is a very fine ink autograph of Confederate general William Ruffin Cox (1832 - 1919). Cox was born on March 11th 1832 in Halifax County, North Carolina. When the War started he was a major in the 2nd North Carolina Infantry. At the battle of Chancellorsville, he was wounded 5 times. After the battle of Cold Harbor, he was promoted to Brigadier General. He was with Robert E. Lee at Appomattox and led the last organized attack by Lee's Army. After the Civil War, he served in the House of Representatives and was Secretary of the Senate from 1893 to 1900. The autograph is accompanied by a printed biography of his service as well as a modern Xerox image of the General. The autograph is on a secretarial written resolution on paper from "In The Senate of the United States". It is dated from March 30th 1896. It is a resolution appointing 2 men to be reporters for the U.S. Senate. The overall paper that the autograph is on measures 8-1/2 inches by 14 inches in overall size. He signs it in ink with the "Secretary" notation down below referring to the writing of the document itself, not his autograph. He signed pieces like this between 1893 and 1900. It is a fine piece of history!
