COMMEMORATING THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CIVIL WAR WITH

THE FINEST ORIGINAL SOLDIER'S LETTERS AND ARTIFACTS
Large War-Date Autograph of CS General B. H. Robertson

If you collect autographs of Confederate Cavalry leaders, here is a real beauty! 

“VERY RESPECTFULLY
YR. AFFECT. SERVT.
B. H. ROBERTSON
BRIG. GENL.
COMDG. CAV.”

The autograph is on blue-grey Confederate paper and was taken out of an 1864 autograph album.  There is still glue on the reverse from being in the album (this could be easily removed by a conservator).  The ink is nice and bold… and you really couldn’t find a nicer example of Robertson’s signature!  He served as Colonel of the 4th Virginia Cavalry, was with Stonewall Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley Campaign and was appointed Brigadier General on June 9th, 1862.  Our example is the rank he held at the battle of Gettysburg WHEN HE SERVED UNDER JEB STUART.
