STOLEN 8/13/17 - Confederate Letter by Colonel Edward Manigault, in Charge of Ordnance in Charleston, S.C. – Enfield Rifles through the Blockade going to the Citadel
If you love Charleston history and letters mentioning blockade running, here is one for you. Edward Manigault was Colonel of Ordnance in Charleston, South Carolina. He is writing to Governor F. W. Pickens to clarify where imported Enfield Rifled muskets are to go.

The letter is written on blue Confederate paper in nice dark ink. The letter mentions John Frasier & Co. who became the Confederate Governments overseas banker and financed its own fleet of blockade runners.

This is one of the letters taken from the personal papers of Governor Pickens before Columbia was burned by Sherman on February 17th, 1865 and purchased by us at auction some 10 years ago.
