    Description

    Joseph Wheeler Civil War Dated Document Signed "J. Wheeler." One page on both sides, 7" x 11.75", n.p., March 25, 1865. The Confederate general endorses a letter from Capt. Thomas Weston regarding the horses of Harrison's Brigade, noting on the reverse (in another hand) that "I think these horses should be sent to some point off the Rail Road where forage can be obtained." The letter also bears a handwritten endorsement by adjutant Henry B. McClellan. The document is uniformly toned with the usual old, smoothed fold creases; else it is in very good condition.
