    [Civil War].Turner Ashby Confederate Abstract Signed. One partially-printed page, 8" x 10", Winchester [Virginia], circa February 1862. Ashby approves the payment of $18.42 to Capt. Henderson for a pine plank used to make bunks while on detached service. The page on which this manifest was written is headed "The United Confederate States." Docketed on the verso. Folds.

    Ashby (1828-1862), Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson's cavalry commander, known as the Black Knight of the Confederacy, was by all accounts a brilliant leader as he waged war in the Shenandoah Valley Campaign. He was killed in action near Harrisburg. Though he had been appointed a brigadier general just two weeks before his death, it was never confirmed by the Confederate Senate.
