image Robert E. Lee. Field endorsement "R.E. Lee Genl" on brown homemade cover addressed in Lee's hand to General I. R. Trimble, Command Division, receipt docketing "Genl. Lee on my promotion" at left

VERY FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE AND BOLD SIGNATURE APPLIED BY GENERAL ROBERT E. LEE TO MAIL CARRIED BY MILITARY COURIER.

Trimble was appointed Brigadier General on Aug. 6, 1861, and was promoted to Major General on Jan. 17, 1863. On July 3, 1863, Trimble lost a leg and was captured during Pickett's charge at Gettysburg. He remained a prisoner until February 1865. The docketing on this cover refers to his promotion to Major General; therefore, it probably dates to January 1863.
