Slight water damage touches the upper edge and top portion of the right edge on the verso, but does not affect the recto or the image.

    Samuel Garland Jr. (1830-1962), a grandnephew of Founding Father and former president, James Madison, practiced law before the outbreak of the Civil War in addition to being captain of the local militia, the Lynchburg Home Guard. The militia group joined the 11th Virginia Infantry at the beginning of the war and Garland saw action at First Manassas, Dranesville, and Williamsburg, where he received his first wound. He was promoted to brigadier general and participated in the Seven Days Battles and Second Manassas. Garland was killed three days before the Battle of Antietam during Gen. Robert E. Lee's Maryland Campaign while defending Fox's Gap from Federal incursion.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
