    Battle of Stone River: Union Soldier J. C. Clark Autograph Letter Signed containing important details about the deadly battle. Eight pages, 8" x 11.75", n.p., n.d. (circa January 1863). The clash of forces under General Rosencrans and General Bragg at the Battle of Stones River produced the Civil War's highest percentage of Union and Rebel casualties. J. C. Clark (of unknown rank) gives a family member many details in this lengthy letter of the battle, which was fought near Murfreesboro, Tennessee, from December 31, 1862, through January 2, 1863. The letter includes two small sketches within the text of troop movements, one indicating "lost ground" during a moment in the battle. "Of the bravery of the troops I need say nothing," Clark writes. "Their long list of killed & wounded, their obstinate fighting & their final victory is their record." Soiled and stained. Weakness at some folds.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
