ARMISTEAD, Lewis Addison (1817-1863) was a career United States Army officer who became a brigadier general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. On July 3, 1863, as part of Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg, Armistead led his brigade to the farthest point reached by Confederate forces during the charge, a point now referred to as the high-water mark of the Confederacy. However, he and his men were overwhelmed, and he was wounded and captured by Union troops. He died in a field hospital two days later. War-date Confederate Autograph Endorsement Signed "L.A. Armistead Br. Genl." with additional autographs of General Richard Anderson and Colonel James G. Hodges, 14th Virginia Infantry. Fine condition. Richard Heron Anderson (1821-1879) was a career U.S. Army officer, fighting with distinction in the Mexican-American War. He also served as a Confederate general during the American Civil War, fighting in the Eastern Theater of the conflict and most notably during the 1864 Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. Anderson was also noted for his humility.
