Description

    Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson Third Person Signature on a cover addressed in his hand, likely war-dated. The cover is addressed to his wife, "Mrs T.J. Jackson / Cottage Home / Lincoln County / North Carolina". Jackson adds: "Please to mail direct." This is likely a war-dated cover, as the address is in North Carolina which is where his second wife, Mary Anna Morrison, hailed from. Jackson had bought a home in Lexington with his wife in 1859 and lived there until he was called to serve in the Confederate Army. His wife likely returned to live with her family upon her pregnancy; she gave birth to a daughter shortly before Jackson's death in 1862. Originally measuring 5.5" x 3.75", the stamp and postal cancellation has been clipped. With soiling commensurate with use, and bold ink; the cover remains very good and is an excellent opportunity to obtain a scarce Confederate signature.
