Feb. 12 Historical Manuscripts Auction presents handwritten letter from Civil War Colonel disbanding his legendary Rangers
LOS ANGELES – An emotional and pointed farewell given by controversial Civil War Colonel John S. Mosby, believed to be one of only two contemporary copies known to be written by him, will be auctioned off as part of Heritage Auctions Los Angeles Signature® Historical Manuscripts & Autographs Auction, Feb. 12. It is estimated at $70,000-$90,000.
The Virginia-born and bred Mosby, known as “The Grey Ghost” for his lightning quick partisan-style tactics against Union forces, addresses his Partisan Rangers at the close of the Civil War after Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. Rather than subject his troops to the undue hardships they would face if they continued to fight, Mosby disbands the 43rd Virginia Cavalry, also known as “Mosby’s Rangers”:
