LS of States Rights Gist – South Carolina General who was Killed at the Battle of Franklin – Asking Col. Manigault, Ordnance Officer to Send a Cannon to Knoxville, Tennessee… the Endorsement on the Reverse is Cooler than the Front ! They Wrote out what was Stamped on the Barrel of the Cannon !! (You’ve just got to see our photo)
Offered is a nice dark ink, one-page letter on official “Adj’t & Insp’t Gen’l’s Office” stationery, headed, “Charleston, S.C. June 29th, 1861.” It is a solid $2,500-$3,000 letter, only one problem: the collector or museum who had it encapsulated it. This is different than laminating but our advice is leave it the way it is. It’s a wonderful display piece, and will last forever. Our half price: $1,250.
Now, are you ready to see that endorsement on the back? Here it is:
They copied what was stamped on the bronze barrel!
