Here is a beautiful autograph of Confederate General Felix Huston Robertson (March 9, 1839 " April 20, 1928). Robertson has the distinction of being the only native-born Texan to serve as a Confederate General for the Confederacy. He was born on Washington-on-theBrazos, Texas on March 9th 1828. He went to West Point but was one of the troops that left the school to serve with the Confederacy. He was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Confederate Artillery. He led a Battery of Artillery from Alabama at the Battle of Shiloh. He was the commander of Confederate General Joe Wheeler's Corps during the Atlanta Campaign. He received his promotion to Brigadier General on July 26th 1864. The General then commanded a Cavalry Brigade under Wheeler against Sherman on the March to the Sea. Robertson was wounded on November 28th 1864. After the Civil War he returned to Texas where he had a law practice. He served in the local United Confederate Veterans which is what this letter pertains to. This is 2 pages of an incomplete letter to Mrs. Josie Francis Cappleman. It is written on his personal stationery that measures 8-1/2 inches by 11 inches in size. The content is about politics of the U.C.V. The one page has his signature beautifully executed in fine brown ink. It reads "I am Madam yours respectfully, Felix H. Robertson." The letter is accompanied by a modern made xerox image of the Confederate General in his uniform. This is a neat autograph of hard fighting Texan.
