    Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston Framed Signature Excised from a Document. One page, 5.75" x 1.75", framed with an attractive facsimile engraving of Johnston to an overall size of 11" x 16", np, nd, ink. Albert Sidney Johnston was a veteran of the Texas, U.S., and Confederate armies, and Jefferson Davis believed him to be the best Confederate general at the time of his death. Dubiously, he became the highest-ranking casualty of the Civil War when he bled to death following a leg wound suffered at Shiloh in April, 1862. This signature was most certainly signed while Johnston served as colonel and brevet brigadier general in the U.S. Army's 2nd Cavalry before the Civil War. The clip reads in full: "Affirmed / A. S. Johnston / Bt Brig Genl & Col 2 Cavly". The signature is dark and the paper is clean. A truly attractive display piece for any Johnston collector.

    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.
