General James Kemper Signed note and Gallon print

2 kemper3 kemper



This is an incredible piece that features a handwritten note by Confederate General James Kemper and a limited edition print hand signed and numbered by Dale Gallon. The handwritten note is written completely in General Kemper’s hand, and he is writing to an admirer and mentions himself as “a soldier paralyzed and suffering from wounds received in battle” & not to be bothered anymore by the requestor. Kemper is obviously referring to the wounds he sustained while leading his Brigade during Picket’s Charge at Gettysburg. There is a tape stain in the upper right corner affecting two words. Otherwise, Very Fine Condition. Overall size of framed piece is 31 X 34.5. This piece has wonderful content, is beautifully framed and includes a vibrant and stunning print that would look incredible on any wall.

The limited edition print, Titled, “The Last Inspection” features soldiers of the 11th Virginia undergoing a final inspection shortly before their assault on July 3rd, 1863 at Gettysburg. The casual demeanor of Pickett, Kemper and Armistead reflects the supreme confidence with which they approached the day’s deadly work. This is a beautiful print that I felt was appropriate given the content of the letter written by Kemper in which he references the battle in which he suffered his severe wounds.

All comes beautifully and professionally custom framed, air tight, using only museum quality materials i.e. acid free mat board and backing, ultra-violet protection glass, etc. The frame is made with high quality, beautifully finished mahogany wood. Ready for your wall!
