Description  

Confederate cavalry brigadier general in the Civil War. He achieved prominence as Thomas J. ‘Stonewall’ Jackson’s cavalry commander in the Shenandoah Valley and might have been one of the most famous cavalry commanders of the war had he not been killed in battle in 1862. War-dated endorsement, “Appr. Turner Ashby,” on a one-page partly printed DS, 7.5 x 10, dated March 31, 1862. Document accounts for almost 19 barrels of corn for a sum of $12.18, attested to by Captain William Miller, and approved by Ashby; also signed twice by Henry Luther, who makes his mark. Letterhead of the document was originally printed with “The United States,” which has been changed in an unknown hand to, “Confederate.” Cloth-matted and framed with a photo and small name plaque to an overall size of 20 x 16. In fine condition, with some light show-through from docketing on reverse. RR Auction COA.
