I want to share an incredible artifact I am offering through my online store, The Civil War Shoppe. It is an extremely rare, war-dated signature of Confederate Major-General Patrick R. Cleburne. Is it expensive, yes? Is it rare? A war-dated signature of Cleburne is nearly impossible to find. Click on the link or email me to handle payment details – $3,695.00 (firm).
Read the profile of a 6th Miss soldier – James Alexander Penn – who was captured during Hood’s retreat after the battle of Franklin.
Gen. John Bell Hood’s Confederate division, made up mostly of Texans, Arkansans, and Alabamians, made their assault upon the far left Federal flank at Gettysburg on July 2nd, 1863. Gen. Sickles’ men
occupied the area around Devil’s Den but were pushed out by the Confederate’s coming from the northwest. Hood’s division then made their way across Plum Run Creek and headed up towards Little Round Top. Hood was struck by shell fragments at Gettysburg, severely wounding his left arm.
