    Confederate Military Collection. Comprises: (1) Fitzhugh Lee. Partly Printed Letter Signed: "Fitzhugh Lee" as Governor of Virginia, one page, 9.5" x 12". Nashville, Tennessee, March 6, 1889.

On March 12, 1862, the following message was sent to Capt. Hooe by Col. Alfred Moulton, 18th Regiment Louisiana Volunteers, Commanding 4th Brigade, C.S. Forces, Mississippi Valley: "A mounted courier has just reached me with a verbal message from Major Baskerville, stating that the enemy had landed a force at Crump's Landing 18,000 strong, firing upon the cavalry pickets, driving them in."
