Item Description: Various places. 1838-1892., 1892. Twenty-five signed letters, one signed letter closing, and eighteen engraved portraits. Letters vary in size between 6 x 4 inches and 10 x 7 inches. Detailed listing below. Folio. Early 20th-century maroon crushed morocco, gilt. Manuscript material tipped in with unobtrusive paper tape. Front hinge neatly repaired. Some letters with typical mailing folds, one detached. Overall, very good. An incredible archive of original manuscript material from some of the elite of the Confederate officer corps. The archive contains twenty-five letters and documents, signed, from before, during, and after the Civil War, all tipped in to an impressive folio album bound in full morocco, with eighteen engraved portraits also bound in. There is also a small clipped signature with salutation by Jefferson Davis laid in. The album begins with a manuscript calligraphic titlepage. The engravings are mostly from the publisher Charles B. Hall of New York (from his work published in 1887), mostly busts, but there are two separate engravings each for Lee and Beauregard. There is also an engraving of a Confederate flag with a poem by John Dimitry. A full listing of the items is as follows, in the order in which they appear in the album: 1) Robert E. Lee. Autograph letter, signed. San Antonio, Feb. 21, 1860. To Maj. Gen. G.H Thomas, Camp Cooper, Tx. 3pp. Lee writes regarding personal and regimental matters, Indian troubles in Texas, need of decent horses and horse feed. He states that he does "not expect to be here (San Antonio) long myself, for even if the troubles on the Rio Grande do not bring more troops into the Dept.two Regts from Utah will move down in the Summer.We shall thus be all straight again." Lee writes of a request by Gen. Sam Houston for more troops, and claims that "The Indians seem to be more troublesome than ever." 2) Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. Document, signed. Opposite Hancock, Md., Jan. 5, 1862. 1p. Here, Jackson writes "To the Officer Comd'g the United States Forces near Hancock, Maryland" and demands the Union forces to stand down, and details potential consequences of refusal. This short letter is the prize of the archive, a wonderful example of Jackson's fiery approach, and the body of the message deserves to be quoted in full: "It is my purpose to cross the River & take possession of the town of Hancock. If in opposing the execution of this purpose, you make use of the town of Hancock, or the Citizens of the town aid you in your opposition I will cannonade the town. If neither of these things is done, I will refrain, as far as practicable, from firing upon it. An immediate reply to this communication is required." Tipped in behind Jackson's letter is a separate unsigned reply from the Union officer in charge: refusing Jackson's demands. This incendiary document was written early in the war, when Jackson was commanding the troops of the Valley District, a subsection of the Department of Northern Virginia. Jackson took over command of the Valley District after First Manassas. In January, 1862 Jackson led a sortie northward to the Potomac in far western Maryland, where he attempted to cross the river. The town held out successfully, although Jackson did shell it for several days, as promised. This communication, typical of Jackson's audacity, dates from just before his famous Valley Campaign of 1862. An excellent document. 3) Joseph E. Johnston. Autograph letter, signed. Savannah, Sept. 20, 1867. To Col. Blanton Duncan. 1p. Johnston declines an invitation to attend the Southern Commercial Convention, with information on other business matters. Johnston served with distinction in a number of military conflicts before and during the Civil War, including the Mexican-American War and the Seminole wars in Florida. When Virginia seceded from the Union, Johnston became the highest-ranking officer to join the Confederacy. His surrender to Sherman in mid-April, 1865, was the effective end of Confederate resistance. 4) P.G.T. Beauregard. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 49478

Item Description: 1862. No binding. Book Condition: Fine. Autograph Endorsement Signed, to D.H. Hill. [Virginia], [ca. November 20, 1862], 1 p., on verso of D.H. Hill to Stonewall Jackson. [Virginia], November 20, 1862. 1 p., on blue paper. 250 x 200mm. Jackson gives directions to his division commander, D.H. Hill, on leaving the Shenandoah Valley to join Robert E. Lee in countering the Union offensive in Virginia. On December 13, Jackson and Hill contributed to the Battle of Fredericksburg, a decisive Confederate victory. ".Your route will be from New Market via Columbia bridge, & Fishers Gap. You will leave the Valley pike at New Market ." Complete Transcript[in Hill's hand:] Nov 20th 1862Genl Capt Pendleton's instructions do not state whether I am to go through Harrisonburg. Shall I cross over directly from New Market to Luray or shall I go by Harrisonburg & Stanardsville. I infer the latter. We have about 120 sick at Strasburg & Midletown, besides a good number unfit to march. May I appropriate all my returning ambulances? I learn that we have but nine (9) in the Division. Respectfully D H Hill Maj Gen[endorsement, in Jackson's hand:] My medical director has given directions to yours respecting the sick. As he is not with me at this time, I can not answer yr question respecting the ambulances.Your route will be from New Market via Columbia bridge, & Fishers Gap. You will leave the Valley pike at New Market, [struck: but][inserted: & keep to the right of Luray.][struck: should you require more flour than you]There will be no occasion I hope for your using [inserted: the] flour at Harrisonburg. T.J. Jackson Lt GenlHistorical BackgroundGeneral D.H. Hill presents two possibilities for marching from the Shenandoah Valley into the Virginia Piedmont based on the location of gaps in the Blue Ridge. The southern route (today, Route 33) began in Harrisonburg, in the valley, and went through Swift Run Gap to Stanardsville, north of Charlottesville. The northern route, which was more direct, involved marching from New Market through Luray and Fisher's Gap, to Culpeper Court House. Jackson's choice of the northern route indicates the urgency of the movement of Jackson's entire corps to reinforce Lee at Fredericksburg. Hill's was the first of Jackson's divisions to begin marching east. On November 18, Lee wrote Jackson, "I think it would be advisable to put some of your divisions in motion across the mountains." On November 23, with Union General Ambrose Burnside now in full force north of the Rappahannock, Lee determined that he did not see "what military effect can be produced by the continuance of your corps in the valley . I wish you would move east of the Blue Ridge."Stonewall Jackson's corps had remained in the Shenandoah Valley after the Battle of Antietam (September 17, 1862), and did not arrive at Fredericksburg until November 29. Fortunately for Lee, Burnside's pontoon boats, needed to cross the Rappahannock River, were held up by red tape. Though Lee was still outnumbered, he had time to allow James Longstreet to entrench on Marye's Heights, west of town, and to channel Jackson's brigades to the more vulnerable positions downstream on the Rappahannock. The Battle of Fredericksburg, fought on December 13, was one of Lee's greatest victories.The wounded referred to in Hill's letter and Jackson's reply were casualties suffered at Antietam. Hill's division, once under Longstreet but now transferred to Jackson's corps, suffered over 2300 casualties, nearly half his command, in Maryland. Hill's division was rebuilt to roughly 9000 men, and Hill was soon granted use of the ambulances to move sick men. According to his biographer, Hill also employed provost guards to pick up stragglers, "a surgeon to examine those who claimed to be sick, and ambulances to carry those who really were unable to continue on foot." Hill marched two hundred miles in nine days, arriving just before the rest of Jackson's Corps at Fredericksburg on November 29. It was a m. (See website for full description).

Item Description: Wien, ca. 1860. Original photograph, carte de visite, albumen print, 10 x 6,5 cm. - L. Angerer, Stadt.Johannesgasse, Wien. In very fine condition. Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson (January 21, 1824 - May 10, 1863) was a Confederate general during the American Civil War, and one of the best-known Confederate commanders after General Robert E. Lee. His military career includes the Valley Campaign of 1862 and his service as a corps commander in the Army of Northern Virginia under Robert E. Lee. Confederate pickets accidentally shot him at the Battle of Chancellorsville on May 2, 1863. The general survived with the loss of an arm to amputation, but died of complications from pneumonia eight days later. His death was a severe setback for the Confederacy, affecting not only its military prospects, but also the morale of its army and of the general public. Jackson in death became an icon of Southern heroism and commitment, becoming a mainstay in the pantheon of the "Lost Cause". Military historians consider Jackson to be one of the most gifted tactical commanders in U.S. history.[citation needed] His Valley Campaign and his envelopment of the Union Army right wing at Chancellorsville are studied worldwide even today as examples of innovative and bold leadership. He excelled as well in other battles; the First Battle of Bull Run (First Manassas) where he received his famous nickname "Stonewall", Second Bull Run (Second Manassas), Antietam, and Fredericksburg. Jackson was not universally successful as a commander, however, as displayed by his weak and confused efforts during the Seven Days Battles around Richmond in 1862.
