Very Rare Confederate Recruiting Broadside for the 13th Virginia Infantry
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Charleston, Kanawha County (West Virginia), July 25, 1862, offering a $25 advance on a bounty paid to able-bodied men willing to enlist. A period manuscript note at the bottom of the sheet names the 13th Virginia, which went on to fight under Lt. General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson, himself a native of Western Virginia. Presented behind glass in a vintage rustic oak frame (13-1/2 x 13-1/2 in.).

From a private West Virginia collection

Recruiting broadsides surviving from the Civil War are very rare, with Confederate ones being nearly impossible to find. The present example is highly desirable to collectors given its association with Stonewall Jackson's renowned "foot cavalry."

Four fold creases; peripheral damp stains; overall age toning. Not examined out of the frame.
