Confederate General Richard S. Ewell War Time Clipped Signature



Small war time signature “R.S. Ewell” signed below in another hand, “Lt. Genl.”. Overall fine. Clip measures 2 ¼ X 1. Suitable for framing. Rare and desirable. Photo not included.

Confederate general (1817-1872). He achieved fame as a senior commander under Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee and fought effectively through much of the war, but his legacy has been clouded by controversies over his actions at the Battle of Gettysburg.
