Trans-Atlantic Cover Liverpool, England pre-blockade to Confederate Augusta, Ga in March 1861. Folded Letter complete. Two letters on the same sheet with the first being a duplicate of a separate letter sent on 1 MAR 1861 and the second letter datelined “Liverpool 8 MAR 1861.” Both letters are business letters dealing with the cotton trade. Letters show the cover originated in Liverpool with a Liverpool backstamp on the reverse. “Canada via Queenstown” routing at top. The “Canada” of the Cunard Line sailed from Liverpool on 9 MAR 1861 and arrived in Boston 25 MAR 1861. The cover was sent unpaid. On arrival in Boston, the cover received a full strike of the Boston “24” Br Pkt mark dated 25 MAR (1861). The “24” means that 24c was due to pay the trans-Atlantic rate. The “19 cents” black handstamp is a Boston mark meaning 19c of the 24c rate was due to Britain since the cover crossed on a British packet leaving 5c for the USPOD to pay for the unpaid inland delivery to Augusta. Cover has a little staining at the upper left but is still a very fine example of a pre-blockade trans-Atlantic cover into Confederate Georgia.  $500.00

The Chatham Light Artillery was a local independent artillery unit raised in Savannah and assigned primarily to the Savannah defenses. Much of this correspondence is archived at the Georgia Historical Society. There is a short letter with this cover datelined "Charleston SC April 11th 1863." The letter states that he is returning to Savannah and also mentions an assault the week before with the "...sinking of the best and greatest of their Fleet and the damage of others..."

In that engagement, five Union ships were disabled and the USS Keokuk was sunk. No further attempts were made by the Union Navy to take Charleston after this failed attack. The letter is dated one month after this cover was posted and clearly is not the original letter that went with this cover. But the letter is definitely from the same correspondence.

J. Findley ADC Dahlonega, Ga. James J. Findley early in the war was the Major of the 52nd Ga Inf but resigned in 1862. His rank of Colonel later in the war was Georgia state rank as he commanded a Georgia home guard militia unit in Lumpkin County. Dahlonega was the county seat of Lumpkin County. ADC in the address refers to "Aide-de-Camp" and moat likely means the cover was addressed to the Colonel's ADC and the office in Millidgeville (the Georgia state capital during the war) probably did not know who was currently serving in that position.

Surgeon Major Horatio Nelson Hollifield (1832-1895) was from Georgia. The original letter remains with the cover datelined "Fort Jackson (Savannah, Ga) 19th April 1863" from Asst Surgeon (Capt) Tom W. Newsome. Both surgeons were from Sandersville, Ga and were friends before and after the war. The letter is a long 4 page personal letter but mentions a number of people who I assume are mutual friends or relatives. Unusual to find a letter between two surgeons.

CSA #4 Stone 2 Position 23 (4-Margin) and CSA #5 (4-Margin ) used in combination to make the 15c 3x rate. To the left is the Cumming, Ga CDS (Forsyth County) 7 JUN (1862). The stamps are manuscript canceled with what looks to be initials "D" and "B." This is consistent with the name of the Confederate postmaster of Cumming, Ga William D. Bentley. Addressed to Messer E. Steadman & Co., Lawrenceville, Ga. The cover is a little oversized at 7 3/4" x 3" and is a Folded Letter Complete which accurately dates the cover. The letter is a business letter dealing with the sale of salt. A typed transcript of the letter is included. The folded letter is certainly not heavy enough to account for the 3x rate. But that mystery is solved by the first line of the letter "I enclose your certificate for forty-eight sacks of your salt..." There was an enclosure, which is no longer present, which accounted for the additional weight. Cover shows some edge wear with a small piece missing at top center and at the upper right corner. These small faults are unobtrusive with the letter folded. Internal folds have been reinforced with nearly invisible archival tape. The cover is otherwise clean and can definitely be exhibited as it is. Very nice stamps. CSA Certificate 2006.

Two Covers from the Same Corespondence addressed in the same hand from an unknown sender originating from Doctor Town, Ga (very obscure use from Wayne County).

CSA #1 Stone 1 Position 3 (4-Margin with a small upper sheet margin and a little gum toning across the top) tied by manuscript postal marking "Dr Town (Ga) Mar 8 (1862)."  Addressed to Mrs S. E. Johnson, Hogansville, Troup Cty, Ga. Care of Mrs. Thompson, Corinth, Ca. Cover has some light foxing and staining and edge wear. Ex-Bogg.

CSA #4 Stone 2 Position 31 (4-Margin) tied by manuscript postal marking "Dr Town (Ga) Apr 15 (1862)." Addressed to Mrs S. E. Johnson, Hogansville, Troup Cty, Ga. Care of Mrs. Thompson, Corinth, Ca. Light staining along the right edge.

Dr. Town, Georgia (also spelled Doctor Town and Doctortown) in Wayne County was established in 1827 on the site of a former Native American village and named for the fact that a Medicine Man had lived there. The post office was established in 1857 and is a CSA listed post office and operated until 1967. The town no longer exists and is now extinct.  Dr. Town is listed in the new CSA catalog, but I have never before seen a cover from this town. These two covers belong together. It would be a shame to separate them.

Sherman bypassed Augusta on his March to the Sea, and Augusta continued Confederate mail service into April 1865. Yellow paper cover addressed to J. Monroe Ogden Esq, Macon, Georgia. Sealed back flap opening tear, sealed edge tear top left center, and small edge tears top right.

CSA #7 Vert Pair affixed sideways margin cut into the desin at top) tied by the Washington, Ga CDS (partial rim which would later wear away into a rimless CDS) (date not apparent but by the address would be late 1862 or early 1863).

Lieut John T. Wingfield (later Capt) entered service in 1861 in Co A 9th Ga Inf and subsequently had service in various Georgia artillery units beginning in late 1861. At the time of this cover (late 1862 or early 1863) he was a lieutenant in Lane's Ga Light Artillery Battery commanded by Captain John Lane. He was promoted Capt 3/2/1863 and transferred to the Ga Sumter Light Artillery. He is listed as wounded at Gettysburg 7/3/1863 (details not given) while serving as a company commander in the Ga Sumter Light Artillery. He is next listed as a company commander in the Ga 11th Battalion Light Artillery beginning 9/10/1864.

CSA #5 (margin tight on the right and stamp with good color with a little brownish tinge to the rose) tied by a full strike of the Atlanta, Ga CDS 14 JUL 1862. Addressed to Sam N. Fenn & Brother, Mossey Creek, Tenn with routing instruction at lower left "via Knoxville, Tenn." Period receiving docketing at right most likely refers to the sender and how to direct a reply "E. N. Spiller Care Maj J. S. Calvert, Retain until called for, Richmond, Va." Exceptionally clean cover.

Edward N. Spiller (1825-1871) was one of the partners in the firm that produced the Spiller & Burr revolver for the Confederacy in Atlanta. He also served briefly as a Captain in 1863-1864 in the 2nd Ga Battalion State Guard Infantry in Atlanta. Only about 1500 Stiller & Burr revolvers were made and are much sought after by collectors today. John Strother Calvert (1806-1870) was Spiller's uncle and a member of the Virginia House of Delegates and was also the Virginia State Treasurer 1858-1867.  He served as a Major in the 10th Va Inf.

CSA #7 two singles in slightly different color shades (left stamp with an irregular margin on the right, and right stamp 4-Margin) tied together and to the cover by a partial strike of the small double circle Macon, Ga CDS (date not apparant). Blue paper Adversity Cover made from a printed but unused county court form displayed flapped over from the left. Military Address to Capt Geo. T. Bartlett, Monticello, Georgia. Routing instruction at lower left “via Eatonton.” Very clean cover.

George T. Bartlett (1824-1885) was a pre-war lawyer and a member of the state legislature and the state senate. He entered service as Capt of Co G 4th Ga Inf 4/25/1861 but apparently resigned a year later. His service record is a bit sketchy as he is listed as captured as a POW 11/19/1864 at Monticello, Ga (his home town). So he must have been engaged in some sort of military activity at that time. In November 1864, Sherman's troops went through Monticello in Jasper County, so that is possibly when he was captured, but details are not given. He was confined at Fort Delaware until his release at the end of the war. After the war, he practiced law in Monticello and served as a county judge.

On arrival in Roma, the postmaster placed the "Roma, Texas April 10 1861" manuscript on the cover and sent the cover on to Round Top, Texas. "Forwarded 3c" manuscript added to assess a forwarding fee. That is unusual as missent mail was usually sent on without an additional fee. But Roma, Texas was quite small, so perhaps the postmaster was not aware of that.

Eugene F. Verdery Jr (1843-1921) writing home to his father. The endorsement is unusual as the unit that private Verdery served in was Co A 63rd Geo Inf. The 63rd Ga Inf also had artillery units. Co A was known as the Oglethorpe (Light) Artillery which is consistent with the "OA" in the endorsement. Private Verdery enlisted 3/6/1863.

Very heavy coarse paper homemade cover with a faded address to Mr. Saml Rutherford (the rest of the address is too faded to decipher). The real importance of the cover is the stamps.

The Block of 8 was offered for sale by Siegel Auctions in the 2001 sale of the Hall Collection and was listed at that time as the only recorded item showing these misplaced transfers.

Stampless cover with the BLUE Bowling Green KY CDS 9 NOV (1861) and manuscript "Paid 10." Semi-Official Imprint "Headquarters Western Department, Official Business" (CC WD-ZA-33). Addressed to A. L. Alexander Esqr for Mrs. Gilmer, Washington, Wilkes Co., Georgia. Based on the handwriting, the cover was sent by CSA Lt Col Jeremy F. Gilmer to his wife in care of his father-in-law. Sealed opening tear at the upper right corner through part of the imprint but nothing missing. Otherwise a clean and complete cover with a scarce imprint and a scarce postal use from Confederate occupied Kentucky.

The Confederates did not have an official "Western Department" designation as no such reference can be found to such a Confederate military department. But the USA had such a designation which in the summer of 1861 included western Kentucky. The Union "Western Department" went out of existence on 11/9/1861 which is the date of this cover. This is very probably a Union imprint and not a Confederate imprint which helps to explain why the imprint is lined through. It appears that Col Gilmer (Later Maj-Gen in 1863) found these imprinted covers most likely in Bowling Green and used them for his personal correspondence home to his wife. The cover appears to be a captured Union imprinted cover and is associated with a later very prominent CSA general. There are only two other examples of this imprint that I could find - one used from Bowling Green KY and dated 25 OCT (1861), and the other used from Nashville 6 NOV (1861). All three covers are from the same Gilmer Correspondence. One is an oversized cover with the imprint not lined through, and the other is similar to this cover with the imprint lined through. I cannot prove positively that this is a Union imprint because I cannot find a postally used Union or pre-war example of the imprint. The only recorded uses that I could find are Confederate from the same personal correspondence. The evidence is compelling that this is "CSA Use of a Union Imprint." My research article, "Headquarters Western Department Semi-Official Imprint," on this imprint was published in the Second Quarter 2021 issue of the Civil War Philatelist. Click the title of you wish to read the full article. One of the additional two covers in this correspondence is listed in the Tennessee section as TN400.

Jeremy Francis Gilmer (1818-1883), an 1839 West Point graduate, was a pre-war US Army Engineer officer. At the beginning of the war, he was commissioned as a CSA Engineer Officer and served as a Lt Col on the staff of General Albert S. Johnston as Chief Engineer of Confederate Military Department No. 2 which included the Western Theater. He was known to have been in Bowling Green in Oct-Nov 1861. He was wounded at the Battle of Shiloh but recovered. In 1862 he was promoted Colonel and became Chief of the Engineer Bureau in the Confederate War Department. In 1863, he was promoted from Colonel directly to Major-General without having been a Brigadier-General and later assisted in the defences of Charleston and Atlanta. Gen Gilmer was considered by many to be the best military engineer in Confederate service. After the war, he engaged in railroad activities and was president of the Savannah Gaslight Company. The handwriting on the three covers known to me with this imprint is clearly that of Gen Gilmer early in his Confederate service.

CSA #11 (AD) (4-Margin) Pen-Cancelled with matching manuscript “Logansport, La Mar 13 (1865).” Period faint docketing at left indicates 1865 usage. Addressed to Miss Jettie Word Care of Col T. J.

This unit was part of the 1861-1862 Army of New Mexico Sibley Expedition. Pvt Word survived the expedition. But this cover is not from her brother. Most likely it is from Henry Jacob Hunter who was in the same unit as her brother but in 1862 became the Regimental 2nd Assistant Surgeon. Shortly after the war, Jettie Word married Dr. Hunter.

CSA #6 Horz Pair (margins irregular) tied by the small double circle Shreveport, La CDS 14 SEP 1862. Addressed to Miss Em M. Reagan, New Salem, Rust County, Texas. “Favor to Shreveport of Mr. Simpson” at the lower left. This cover is from the same correspondence as Cover BE121 presented in the Bush Exhibit section and is known to have originated from Pollard, Ala. Research has shown that the sender of the cover was Douglas J. Cater (1841-1931) of Rusk County, Texas who married Emily Mary Reagan after the war in 1866. Douglas John Cater began service as a private in Co B 3rd Tex Cav 5/16/1861 and transferred to Co I 19th La Inf 6/29/1862 to be with his brother. At the time of this cover, the 19th La Inf was assigned to the Department of the Gulf and was in Pollard, Ala. Cover was handcarried by a Mr. Simpson (possibly a soldier headed home on furlough) from Pollard, Ala across the Mississippi and put into the mail at Shreveport for delivery to Texas. There is partially erased pencil docketing which is difficult to read because of the erasure and most likely is not period and not related to this cover. Backflap opening tears but a very clean appearance and excellentusage. $500.00

Leach, New Orleans, La. Cover on the surface looks like an overpaid drop letter. However, the stamp would have been affixed somewhere upriver and then canceled with the river mail postmark on arrival in New Orleans.

Gen Pike resigned his commission 11/11/1862, and Capt Hewitt later served as AAG to the famed Orphan Brigade (Confederate soldiers from Kentucky organized into the 1st Kentucky Brigade CSA). Apparently whoever forwarded the cover in December 1862 did not realize that Gen Pike had resigned the month before and that Capt Hewitt was no longer on the General's staff at this time.
