Fayetteville [NC]: 1863. Broadside, 7" x 7." Tanned and lightly worn, Very Good. With Pillow's secretarial signature as "Brig. Gen. C.S.A. and Chief of Bureau," reflecting his demotion after having been charged with abandoning his post at Fort Donelson in early 1862. Also manuscript signature, 'H.C. Lockhart,' assistant adjutant general. Docketed on verso in manuscript: "List of absentees will be furnished by colonel. By order of Brig Genl Pillow, Chief of Bureau. H.C. Lockhart AAGenl."

A very rare Confederate imprint, responding to the Confederacy's Conscription Act of 1862, which aroused much opposition from the new polity purportedly devoted to State Rights and individual liberty.
Not located in Parrish, Crandall, Hummel, or any other bibliography. However, OCLC 747346518 [1] records a copy at the Boston Athenaeum, the only location which we have discovered despite a diligent investigation. Item #36876
