    Description

    Confederate General Richard Ewell Signature, 4.25" x 1.5". The Confederate general has written, "I am in[?] [...] at this time to do better/ Yours/ R. S. Ewell." Virginian Richard Stoddard Ewell (1817-1872) graduated from the U.S. Military Academy in 1840. A Confederate brigadier at First Manassas, Ewell was a corps commander at Gettysburg. His cautious decision to not attack Federal positions on Cemetery Hill has often been considered the error that handed ultimate victory to the Union. Irregularly cut (excised from a larger document) and affixed to equal sized card stock. Signature is slightly smeared; near fine.
