rare! 1862 Slave Labor Receipt for: FORTIFICATIONS IN AND AROUND RICHMOND

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Measuring approximately 5 ½ X 4 1/8 inches this small preprinted and hand completed receipt confirms the extensive utilization of slave labor on fortifications at and near the City as Richmond prepared for the Seven Days Battles that would soon swirl around the Capitol City. The slave Booker was provided by Anne Belle Leftwich, child bride of [destined to be Colonel] Alexander Hamilton Leftwich who would serve in Co. B VMI Corps of Cadets at the Battle of Newmarket. Ordered by regular Confederate Engineer, Lt. Col. W. H. Stevens who was responsible for Richmond’s fortifications. He was promoted to Brig. General in August 1864 and is said to have been the last man to cross the Mayo Bridge the night Richmond was evacuated. All original and in pleasing condition with no rips, tears or repairs.
