DABNEY H. MAURY
Dabney H. Maury, a Major General in the Confederate States Army, wrote this short letter about the fates of two fellow generals after the American Civil War.
Autograph letter signed "Dabney H Maury/(late Maj Gen Confederacy)". 1 page, 4¼x2½, ruled paper. Addressed to "Clauus [sic] Perry Esq:". In full: "Dear Sir Gen D H Hill is in Fayette in Arkansas Gen R H Anderson died very respecty yours,". Before serving in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War, Maury (1822-1900, born Dabney Herndon Maury in Fredicksburg, Virginia) fought for the United States Army at the Battle of Cerro Gordo, a battle that nearly cost him his arm but earned him the rank of lieutenant colonel for bravery. He taught at West Point and the Cavalry School at Carlisle Barracks before being appointed Assistant Adjutant General of New Mexico Territory; his book Tactics for Mounted Rifles became a standard textbook. At the outbreak of war, he resigned from the U. S. Army and joined the CSA as a colonel and Adjutant General. Maury was promoted to brigadier general after the Battle of Pea Ridge (March7-8, 1862) and to major general one month after leading a division at the Second Battle of Corinth (Oct. 3-4, 1862). He fought in the area of Vicksburg, Mississippi and in the defense of Mobile, Alabama before the war's conclusion. After the South surrendered, he founded an academy in Fredricksburg to teach classical literature and mathematics, founded the Southern Historical Society in Richmond, Virginia and served as United States Minister to Colombia. Lightly toned and bowed. Handwriting and signature have bled lightly in places, but is legible. Show-through from adhesive residue on verso touches handwriting but not signature. Irregular bottom edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
