Confederate general (1837–1919) who commanded troops at the Battle of Seven Pines, Gettysburg, and Spotsylvania. Uncommon war-dated manuscript DS, signed “Robt. D. Johnston, Brig Genl,” seven pages on two sets of lightly-lined adjoining sheets, 8 x 12.5, October 30, 1864. A lengthy report of detailed men of Johnston’s brigades. The roll is separated by name, company, regiment, where the men were detailed and by what authority, whether they were able or disabled, and the disposition made. Roll lists 191 names, including “Wofford’s Brigade,” and the 5th North Carolina. Names listed under the authority column include “Gen’l Lee,” “Sec. of War,” “Genl Johnston,” and “Maj. Gen Jones.” Signed at the top of the final page, “Respectfully submitted, Robt. D. Johnston, Brig Genl.” Conclusion of the document bears an endorsement signed by Acting Inspector L. T. Everett. In fine condition, with a single ink line through all of Johnston’s writing (which remains completely legible) partial separations along hinges, and some mild toning along folds. RR Auction COA.
