Danville Leadbetter (August 26, 1811 - September 26, 1866) was a career U.S. Army officer and later he served as a Confederate general during the American Civil War. A trained engineer, Leadbetter supervised the construction of forts before and during the war, and is noted for his controversial involvement in the November 1863 Battle of Fort Sanders in eastern Tennessee. After the conflict he left the country and lived out the remainder of his life on foreign soil. Autograph Document Signed "D Leadbetter, Col. & Engr", on partially printed form, February 23, 1861, requesting supplies for repairs of Fort Morgan.
