Confederate General Stephen D. Lee Clipped Signature


Clipped signature “Stephen D. Lee, 1st Lieutenant Artillery / Regimental Quartermaster “. Bold and crisp ink. Overall size of cut is 4 x 1 ¾ Very fine condition. A beautiful example. The General wrote this just prior to the start of the Civil War when he served as a 1st Lt. of Artillery and the 4th Regiment’s quartermaster (1857-1861).

Youngest Confederate lieutenant general during the Civil War who later served as the first president of Mississippi A&M College (1833–1908).
