Confederate Cover Autographed by Future CS General William C. Wickham - He Signs as "Lt. Col. 4th Va. Cavalry" - Served with J.E.B. Stuart in Raid on Calett's Station & Maryland Invasion

Our cover has a fine “TUDOR HALL, MAR. 9, 1862” postmark and “DUE 5”.  In the upper left hand corner of the cover is written in Wickham’s hand “Wm. C. Wickham, Lt. Col. 4th Va. Cavalry”.  The letter is addressed to Mrs. Lucy P. Wickham, Hanover C.H., Va. 

Condition of the cover is good with full back flap present.  There is a stain at the top not interfering with the writing or postmarks.  In the book “Autographs of the Confederacy”, Wickham is listed as “A desirable signature”.  In late 1864 Wickham resigned his commission and took a seat in the Confederate Congress.  War date autographs of Wickham are quite scarce and offered is a nice example.
