Fine content war-date A.D. (unsigned), 2pp. legal folio, [near Appomattox], Apr. 15, 1865, in pencil, written six days after Lee's surrender and four days after his farewell to his troops. The document, headed "Notes on Orders", shows Confederate logistics in the wake of the surrender. In small part: "...Order Maj. [Samuel R.] Chisman to send 30 wagons or a sufficient number thereof, with supplies...the residue of the available wagons will move from Jonesboro, with the Army train, loaded with medicine, stores, ammunition & salt...Gen. [Alfred] Iverson to furnish the thirty wagons for the purposes above...with a guard of 200 men properly officered and on arriving at Jamestown will be properly employed unloading the wagons & boarding the trains for Salisbury...Inform Col. Clarke...that Gen. Ferguson reports that nothing has been done both [?] of RR & telegraph at Salisbury...". Very good.
