    Confederate General John Henry Winder Clipped Signature "Jn H Winder/ Brig Gen". 7.75" x 2" on Confederate "blue" paper. Richmond, February 10, 1862. Winder was a West Point graduate and was given the assignment of Provost Marshal in charge of prison camps. He was an unpopular figure in both the North and in his native South. He died before the end of the war of natural causes. An autograph note that the consignor indicates was written by Colonel Theodore B. Gates is written at the lower left corner and reads in full: "Gen. Winder became infamous by means of his alleged cruelty to Union prisoners." His signature has faded slightly else it is in very good condition.
