    J. E. B. "Jeb" Stuart: Maryland Raid Tent Relic. The material in this lot originally was contained in the scrapbook of Rev. John Collins McCabe (1810-1875). McCabe briefly served as the Chaplain of the 32nd Virginia and was also "Chaplain General" of the Richmond prisons. The highlight of this group is a 4" x 5 1/2" section of canvas with a period note attached, reading: "J. E. B. Stuart's tent, Urbana, Frederick Co. Md. Raid into Maryland." The famous raid, a.k.a. the "Chambersburg Raid" took place October 10-12, 1862, following the Battle of Antietam. It was enormously successful in capturing supplies and led to the dismissal of McClellan by President Lincoln. The group includes a wide range of ephemera culled from the scrapbook, including: a four-page manuscript on the "Laws of Chess", a small program for an 1866 dramatic performance, an 1861 handbill containing a poem by McCabe opposing Bishop Whittingham's bull demanding that clergyman should still publicly pray for the President of the United States, a war-time ballot from Richmond, two envelopes addressed to Miss Alice McCabe and a manuscript poem of a romantic nature likely written by Alice.
