PRICE…SOLD

Here is a superb early-war dated Autograph Letter Signed (ALS), 1 page, 8vo., Taylor’s (Manassas,VA area), 12/6/61 with notation by Genl. G.T. Beauregard and signed with his initials at the bottom. Very Fine overall and would be absolutely a gem to frame. Great piece of history with two important Confederate Generals signing!

 

“My Dear General

                        But two of the Redouts have been set apart for the batteries of My Division. I have ordered sheds over the embrasures of these and blackened logs (fake) put in there: no others. If you desire me to have others fixed please advise me.

                                                                                        Very Sincerely Yours

                                                                                                         J.Longstreet
