    Description

    Jubal A. Early Signed Presentation Copy of Early's Book A Memoir of the Last Year of the War for Independence. Toronto: Lovell & Gibson, 1866. 8vo, 144 pages. Confederate General and author Jubal A. Early presented this copy of his memoir to fellow Confederate General William H. Payne with the following inscription found on the title page: "General Payne/With the compliments of J A Early/Toronto C. W./Jany 10th 1867." Following the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia, Early fled southwest to Texas in hopes of finding a Confederate force still in the field. Unsuccessful, he fled across the border into Mexico. From their he sailed to Cuba before settling in Toronto, Canada. He was officially pardoned in 1868 by President Andrew Johnson and returned to Virginia in 1869.

    A second inscription appears on the front pastedown in the hand of General Payne and reads: "William H. Payne from Lt Gen Early. 1867." William H. F. Payne enlisted as a private in the Confederate army shortly after the secession of his native Virginia and, by the end of the war, had risen to the rank of brigadier general. There are several holographic notations strewn throughout that are also in Payne's hand. Lightly toned and foxed throughout.
