Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $14,730.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Confederate general (1817–1863) mortally wounded during Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg, where he courageously led his brigade into battle—he fixed his hat to the tip of his saber and urged his men onward. The location where Armistead fell—known as ‘the Angle’—is regarded by many as the ‘high-water mark’ of the Confederacy. Rare crisp ink signature, “L. A. Armistead, Bvt. Mj. 6th Infy,” on an off-white 4.25 x 1.5 slip clipped from a document. Attractively matted with two images and a biographical plaque to an overall size of 20 x 16. In fine condition. A remarkably clean example of one of the rarest Confederate signatures. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
