    Confederate General St. John Richardson Liddell Document Signed "St John R Liddell/ Brig. Gen Comd". 7.5" x 9.5". Partially printed document on blue lined paper printed by Farrow & Dennett Printers, Mobile, Alabama. Liddell has endorsed this Confederate States chit for the purchase of lumber vertically along the left margin. Payment was to be made to Origen Sibley, Jr., who appears as a corporal on the roster of the 2nd Alabama Volunteer Infantry. Liddell served in many prominent positions during the war including serving as staff officer to Generals Hardee and Johnston during the early stages of the war and later participating in the battles of Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, and several engagements in the Trans-Mississippi Theater. Liddell was murdered after the war by a former Confederate colonel over a decades old real estate deal. The document has the usual old fold creases, otherwise it is in very good condition. A scarce Confederate signature.
