||CSA #12 (AD)
(4-Margin) tied by the BLACK
CDS 12 MAR (1865). Addressed to Mr. A. C. McIntosh, Taylorsville,
Alexander Co NC. Not known who sent this cover from the Siege of
Petersburg, but the addressee had a son, Daniel J. McIntosh, who served
in the 7th NC Inf.
McIntosh was captured as a POW at Gettysburg and confined at Fort
Delaware and later transferred to Point Lookout where he died as a POW
on 8/14/1864 so he could not have sent this cover. Most likely the cover was sent by a relative of the
addressee in a North Carolina regiment. Very clean cover with
late use from the Siege of Petersburg.
