Item No. 6503827

An interesting prewar provision return for the 9th U.S. Infantry signed by two future Confederate generals, James J. Archer and John W. Frazer. Written in 1859 from “Mission Valley,” the document indicates the number of rations needed for two days for Company C, which reported having 71 men on hand. It is signed at the lower left by Archer, who would be Colonel of the 5th Texas and serve under Lee in the Army of Northern Virginia. At the lower right is Frazer’s signature. He would be best known, perhaps, for surrendering Cumberland Gap in 1863.

The document was written and signed entirely in pencil on a fragment of stationery measuring about 7 3/4” x 5 1/4”. Creased where originally folded. Light wear to edges and corners.
