Título: Autograph Note Signed (secretarial).
Ejemplar firmado: Signed by Author(s)
This Confederate general, nicknamed "Devil Forrest" and "The Wizard of the Saddle," was a formidable and innovartive cavalry commander and post-war an influential Southern loeader, controversial because of his Ku Klux Klan involvement. Secretarially-signed ANS, 1p, 8" X 10", Memphis, TN, 1874 June 3. Addressed to F.F. Stockwell. Very good. Mounting traces on corner versos (visible at upper corners on recto); faint original mailing folds (none weakened). On letterhead of "Selma, Marion & Memphis Rail Road Co." listing Forrest as president, he notes that "Mr. J.B. Morton is now residing in Nashville Tenn, & I presume any communication will reach him there." Boldly penned in a large, legible and flamboyant hand -- but not Forrest's, alas. Below the secretarial signature appears "[illegible] M. Genl" -- an odd error since Forrest's rank rose from Major General (attained 4 December 1863) to Lieutenant General on February 28, 1865. This railroad venture was on its last legs about this time, with the panic of 1873 still going strong, and it would soon go bankrupt, forcing Forrest to supervise a prison work farm on the Mississippi River to survive and living min a log cabin saved from his plantation. Accompanied by a handsome mid-20th century 8" X 10" glossy photograph, a reprint of a famous head-and-shoulders portrait of Forrest in his Confederate uniform. Very good. Remember, a secretarial letter from this sad period near the end of Forrest's life, but interesting nonetheless. N° de ref. de la librería 40448
