Jefferson Columbus Davis - Autograph Letter Signed 07/05/1862 For Sale

Jefferson Columbus Davis - Autograph Letter Signed 07/05/1862

UNION GENERAL JEFFERSON C. DAVIS WILL ALLOW A CONFEDERATE SURGEON, JUST RELEASED FROM JOHNSON'S ISLAND PRISON, TO PASS THROUGH UNION LINES ONLY IF HE IS GOING HOME--NOT IF HE IS RETURNING TO HIS TROOPS.
JEFFERSON COLUMBUS DAVIS. War-date ALS: "Jef C Davis/Brig Genl/Comdg Div", 1½p, 5½x9, front and verso. Headquarters 4th Division, Left Wing Army Miss., Jacinto, Mississippi, 1862 July 5. To General C.S. Hamilton, Comdg. Left Wing. In full: "Dr. Taylor a surgeon of the Confederate Army has reported to me. He's just from Johnson's Island where he was sent from Fort Donalson -- he has been released & is on his way home in Rienzi. I have thought it best to send this information to you before allowing him to proceed -- he says he is desirous of returning home & to resuming his practice there as a Physician if this be the case it would be well enough to let him proceed -- but should he desire to proceed on to join his Command it would be objectionable to allow him thus to pass thro. our lines. Please answer & oblige your obed. srt." Johnson's Island was a Union Civil War prison in Lake Erie. The prison, which housed Confederates and civilians seemingly disloyal to the Union, received its first prisoners in April 1862. Dr. Taylor had been transferred there from Fort Donalson in Tennessee. Written the month before JEFFERSON COLUMBUS DAVIS (1828-1879), took ill and took a 21-day leave of absence from his commission. On September 29, 1862, Davis would shoot and kill Major General William Nelson, a former commanding officer, over a personal insult. Arrested and confined for 21 days, Davis was released and returned to duty, later commanding the XIV Corps during Sherman's "March to the Sea". Davis, a veteran of the Mexican War (he served under Zachary Taylor at Buena Vista), had been put in command of Fort Sumter in August 1858 and was present when the fort was bombed, beginning the Civil War. Named a Brigadier General in 1861, Davis served with distinction at the battles of Elkhorn (Pea Ridge) and Corinth earlier in 1862. CHARLES SMITH HAMILTON (1822-1891) had been named Commander of the left wing of the Army of the Tennessee following service with the Army of Mississippi, in which he commanded a division at Corinth and won the battle of Iuka. Hamilton resigned his military commission in April 1863. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Ink smudged at 10 words on front, show though of ink on verso. Ink smudged at 11 words on verso, affects "C" of signature. Lightly soiled and stained, touching some writing. Overall, fine condition.
