    Very Rare Manuscript Order Addressed to Confederate Cherokee Gen. Stand Watie and Docketed by Him on the Verso. 7" X 9" headed "Hd Qrs Ind. Terr. Fort Towson, C. N. (Choctaw Nation) April 13th 1865." Requests that Watie prepare recommendations for staff officers of his brigade, signed "T. M. Scott A. A. Genl". Various docketing on the reverse including bold "Brig. Genl Watie" in his own hand. Missing one small piece at upper right, generally bright crisp and sound, signature perfect. Remarkable 'business as usual' document in view of the date, four days after Lee's surrender at Appomattox.
