RR Autograph Auctions Barnard E. Bee

Confederate general (1824–1861), responsible for inspiring Thomas J. ‘Stonewall’ Jackson’s nickname, who was mortally wounded at the First Battle of Bull Run. Rare war-dated ink signature, “B. E. Bee, Lt. Col, Comdg.,” on a lightly-lined light blue 3.25 x 1.75 lightly-lined slip, clipped from a larger document. In fine condition. Bee’s signature dates from between March and June 1861, as he was appointed brigadier general on June 17, 1861. Incredibly scarce in war-dated material, this is the first Bee signature we have offered. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
