Garnett became the first general from either side to be killed in action. Garnett received what later proved to be false information that his escape route to Beverly was blocked by Union troops. He instead marched to the northeast, following ridges and valleys in a more circuitous route. Pursued for several days by as many as 20,000 Federals, Garnett paused at several stream crossings to slow his adversaries. While directing his rear guard in a delaying action at Corrick's Ford, Garnett was shot and killed during a Union volley. The document, 8” x 10,” is signed in type by R.S. Garnett, June 6, 1861 and is protocol for handling officers’ letters.
