    Confederate General Archibald Gracie, Killed at Petersburg, signed approval note, clipped and laid down on paper. Confederate Brigadier General Archibald Gracie was born in New York City on December 1, 1832 and graduated from West Point with the Class of 1854. After leaving the army he traveled to Mobile, Alabama to work with his father. He entered service with the 3rd Alabama Infantry at the outset of the war and fought in east Tennessee, Kentucky, and at Chickamauga. After being promoted to brigadier general in November 1862 he was severely wounded at Bean's Station. From 1864 onward he served in the Petersburg trench duty where he was killed by an exploding shell while looking through his telescope at the enemy. His family had allied themselves with the Union during the war. This 3" x 3" clipped handwritten note of approval along with his signature is in good condition. A nice signature and note from a Confederate general.

    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.
