    "Stonewall" Jackson War-dated Endorsement, Alongside Endorsements by Generals Iverson and Hill

    Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson War-Dated Endorsement Signed on verso of a letter sending recommendations for promotions. A letter from Benjamin Wade, 7.5" x 9", Headquarters 1st NC Troops, December 21, 1862. In part: "I have the honor to recommend for your approval the names of Lt. Col. Thomas Ruffin 1st NC Troops for the position of Colonel of the regiment and Capt Henry E Coleman of Granville Co. NC for Lt. Colonel. 1st Sgt. John Bomery as 1st Lieut in Company G, 2nd [Sgt] William D. Benkley..."

    General Alfred Iverson writes a lengthy endorsement approving all of the promotions and signs with rank on December 21, 1862. General Daniel Hill adds his endorsement beneath Iverson's: "The recommendation of Lt. Col Ruffin is most cordially approved. Capt. Coleman being out of the field & absent from battle, it would be a great crime to promote him. [signed] D.H. Hill Maj. Genl."

    Jackson adds his endorsement in the third column, "Dec. 22, 62. Respectfully forwarded. T.J. Jackson M Genl."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
