    Appomattox Parole - one of the finest examples we have had - signed by a Confederate Surgeon

    Appomattox Parole Issued to Captain George S. Jones of the 2nd Battalion Georgia Infantry. One page, partly printed, 8" x 3", Appomattox Court House, Virginia. April 10, 1865. Jones enlisted on April 20, 1861 as a 2nd Lieutenant. He fought all 4 years of the war and was seriously wounded at Gettysburg and again at Sailor's Creek just days before Appomattox. Hence, his parole is signed by a Confederate surgeon, "G.W. Briggs". The 2nd Battalion Georgia Infantry fought in Devil's Den (the "Valley of Death") at Gettysburg. Jones was wounded in the face and had his arm shattered at that time. While most Appomattox paroles are heavily stained and in pieces, this fine example is intact, with flattened folds and uneven toning. Some soiling along the folds on the verso.

    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.
