    Description

    Confederate General Adley Hogan Gladden Signature with a letter transmitting the signature. The signature (3.5" x 1") is tipped-into a larger sized paper (8.75" x 3"). The letter (8" x 5.5") is dated April 14, 1873, Mobile, and is affixed on a slightly larger page.

    More Information:

    The letter, written to "Col. Chas. Jones" of New York, reads, "Enclosed please find another autograph of Genl. Gladden which I send you in reply to your letter . . . to J. M. Seixas of New Orleans." Seixas likely knew Gladden prior to the war (both lived in New Orleans and Seixas was serving under Braxton Bragg, who promoted Seixas to lieutenant after the Battle of Shiloh. Gladden, a Confederate brigadier general, was a veteran of the Seminole Wars and Mexican War. He died after his arm was amputated from a wound received at the Shiloh in 1862. Fine.
