The sought-after Confederate commander just months before his death on the battlefield


Offered here is a wonderful and rare Civil War–dated endorsement signature, “A. P. Hill, Lieut. Genl” dated at the Headquarters 3rd Corps, Army of Northern Virginia, December 20, 1864, on the docketing panel of a later pay receipt, one page, 8.25 x 7.5, January 30, 1865. A very light endorsement by Cadmus Wilcox is penned above Hill’s, and another by Walter Taylor is penned below, returning the documents “by order of Genl Lee.” In very good condition, with intersecting folds, overall dampstaining and soiling, and show-through from writing to opposing sides; Hill’s signature is strong and bold. This document dates to just four months before Hill was killed in action at the Third Battle of Petersburg as he tried to rally his troops in the face of a Union offensive. Hill is an exceedingly scarce Confederate autograph, particularly in so bold an example.

All has been beautifully custom matted and framed professionally, using only the best archival materials to protect it long term. The photo is a beautiful hand tinted high quality reproduction of the General with archival qualities. This is an incredible wall hanger and ready for a nail. Overall size is 19.5 X13.
