With it is an original CDV photo of him taken from his personal album. Overall fine condition with scattered soiling and folds. 

The document reads in full:

“Lieutenant,

PRICE…SOLD

Fantastic ALS signed “Jno. S. Mosby,” one page, Massanetta Spring Water letterhead, July 12, 1913. This letter has  direct reference to the Civil War as he recollects the famous “Greenback Raid”. Letter to “Dear Fount,” presumably Fount Beattie, one of Mosby’s rangers. In part: “I went in to Harrisburg today & sent you today’s paper. I really thought until I read Charlie Dean’s interview that I was present when the greenbacks were captured…etc…”

In very good condition, with partial separations to intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), several tears and small areas of paper loss to left edge, dampstaining to the left side, and significant mirroring to ink.

All has been beautifully custom matted and framed professionally, using only the best archival materials to protect it long term. The photo is a high quality reproduction of the General. Stunning wall hanger and ready for a nail. Overall size is 19.5 X 15.

This item will be accompanied by a full Letter Of Authenticity from PSA/DNA, the industry leader in document authentication. Buy with complete confidence, this item is backed by a lifetime guarantee of authenticity.

Although Mosby and his men were technically part of J. E. B. Stuart’s cavalry, they operated largely as an independent guerilla force. On October 14, 1864, Mosby and eighty of his rangers robbed a train on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad—an event often referred to as The Greenback Raid—and got away with so much money that each man’s share amounted to over $2,000. The success of this massive heist further enhanced the Mosby myth and legend.

Featured here is an incredibly rare and fascinating war-date ALS by Confederate General Felix Zollicoffer. Confederate brigadier general (1812–1862) who was killed in action at the Battle of Mill Springs, making him the first Confederate general to die in the Western Theater. ALS signed “F. K. Zollicoffer,” one page, 6.5 x 4, January 18, 1862. Field directive to Captain Rutledge issued from his headquarters at Beech Grove. In full: “Will have four guns of his batter—two howitzers and two six pounders ready to march at 6 oclock this evening. Let the gun carriages and caissons each have two extra horses.”

Affixed to a slightly larger sheet for reinforcement. Mounted, matted, and framed to an overall size of 17 x 16.
