Description

    CSA Brigadier General John D. Imboden: 1863 Autograph Postal Cover Signed "O B J D. Imboden/ Brig Gnl" 7.75" x 3.75". Originally addressed to Imboden from Robert E. Lee's Chief of Staff Walter H. Taylor, the cover was turned, resealed, and then addressed by Imboden to Major H. W. Gilmon. In 1863, General Robert E. Lee assigned Imboden the command of the Shenandoah Valley District, Stonewall Jackson's old district. Early in May 1864, Imboden marched from Mount Crawford, Virginia and held the Federals in check until, reinforced by Breckinridge, the successful battle of New Market was fought using VMI cadets. The postmark is indistinct with a tear to the left. The top and left side are ragged due to opening.

    Condition:
    The cover is toned, and in good condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
