Though I'm not certain, I believe this cover dates from 1863 or 1864. As shown, the piece, which I believewas mailed from Greensboro, North Carolina, is addressed to Claude B. Denson,Assistant Engineer, Richmond, Virginia. Note that it was sent care of Captain B.L. (Benjamin Louis) Blackford. A bit of research reveals that Claude (Claudius) Denson was born in Portsmouth, Virginia. Apparently an academic, Denson founded the Franklin Military Academy in Duplin County, North Carolina.At the outbreak of war in April, 1861, he and the entire student body enlisted in the Confederate Army as the 10th Regiment, North Carolina Volunteers, also known as the "Duplin Grays" or the "Confederate Grays." Though Denson failed to be elected as captain, he served as a 2nd lieutenant in Company A, 2nd Regiment, Confederate Engineers. That same company, I believe, was stationed at Fort Fisher in North Carolina. The envelope measures 4 5/8" x 2 3/4" and is in good condition, though wear is evident. (See scans.) Buyer pays $3.00 postage/handling (hard mailer). Fee includes USPS tracking. Georgia residents add 6% sales tax.
