    Pickett's Division Appomattox Surrender Document

    Rare Confederate 'Pickett Surrender' Document Signed by His Brother, "C. Pickett" by Major Charles F. Pickett and "G E Pickett", secretarially by Charles Pickett, one page with docketing, 7.5" x 10", April 11, 1865, Appomattox C. H., Virginia. This "Last Return of Pickett's Division as surrendered April 9, 1865" is composed of a hand-drawn grid on which the troops of each brigade of the division is noted. Officers and enlisted men are counted separately, with the former being further divided by rank. A total strength of just 987 makes up this tattered remnant of George Pickett's reduced division. Major General Pickett was not present to sign this final roll, leaving his brother, the division's Assistant Adjutant General, the task of doing so. Considerable fading to title, some stains, smoothed folds with small splits. Very good condition.
    Provenance:The William Turner Collection
