Army Of Tennessee Rare Marching Orders By Commander Alexander Stewart 1865 For Sale
This is an extremely rare document. March 23, 1865 hand written Army of Tennessee manuscript orders by Corps Commander Alexander Stewart to his divisional commanders. Late material from the Army of Tennessee is nearly impossible to find as the once vaunted army was sent to its virtual destruction by General Hood at Franklin and Nashville in December 1864.
The orders are written on a piece of paper measuring just over 6 1/4" long and shy of 4 1/4" wide. Shows fold marks and some wear. On the back in the center it looks like it was address to Major General Cheatham. Included it the book Confederate Military History Volume VIII Tennessee written by Lt. Colonel & Tennessee Governor (January 18, 1875– February 16, 1879) James D. Porter. The manuscript was found in the book. The book is signed by James D. Porter. There are also handwritten notes by James D. Porter on some of the pages in the book. The book is Copyright 1899 by the Confederate Publishing Company. The book is in good condition. The binding is a little loose but all the pages are intact.
Both pieces have been looked at by Wes Cowan sales back in September of 2010. I do have the saved correspondence from Cowans. They wanted to sale them at that time but the then owner declined and held onto them until now.
