‘Stonewall’ forwards an order two weeks before his death on the battlefield

Civil War–dated ink endorsement signature as lieutenant general, “T. J. Jackson,” at the conclusion of a concise manuscript document headed “Hd Qrs 2d Army Corps,” one page, 3.25 x 2, April 21, 1863, in full: “Res. forwarded & Appr’d.” Affixed to the reverse of a 2.5 x 4 carte-de-visite portrait of Jackson, bearing an identification notation in the lower border. In very good condition, with moderate overall toning, soiling, and a few stains, none of which affect the unusually bold signature. Accompanied by another carte-de-visite portrait of Jackson by Lee Gallery of Richmond, also bearing an identification notation in the lower border. This note dates to just eight days before the Battle of Chancellorsville commenced, during which Jackson was mortally wounded. On the evening of May 2, while leading his men back to camp, he and his troops were mistaken for a Union cavalry force and fired on by the 18th North Carolina. Hit by three bullets, Jackson’s arm had to be amputated; he soon contracted pneumonia and died from complications on May 10. In addition to the late date of this endorsed document, the accompanying carte-de-visite is quite notable as it is Jackson’s last portrait, taken at Spotsylvania County farm on April 26, 1863. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
