VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EARLY REGIMENTAL FLAG AND CANNON PATRIOTIC COVER FROM PENSACOLA, FLORIDA.

This scarce design depicts a cannon that is facing right and not firing, unlike the other Cannon designs which face left and are shown firing. We have offered only three other examples of this design since 2002, including one other from Pensacola with a different regimental imprint, offered in our 2014 sale of the Dr. Brandon collection

The Brandon Collection, Part 2: General Issues and Postal History

Sale Number 1087, Lot Number 188, Confederate Patriotics: Cannons thru Soldiers, States5c Dark Green, Stone 1 (1b), 5c Dark Green, Stone 1 (1b)5c Dark Green, Stone 1 (1b). Horizontal pair, large margins all around, wonderful deep shade and early impression, faint pre-use diagonal crease at lower left, tied by bold "Pensacola Fla. Nov. 12" (1861) circular datestamp on buff cover to Greenville S.C. with red and blue 11-Star Confederate Flag and Cannon Patriotic design with "Georgia Battery, Griffin Light Guard, Pensacola, Fla." Regimental Imprint (CN-4), H. P. Hill imprint, minor opening tear at top right, small mended nicks at upper and lower right corners

VERY FINE AND HIGHLY EXHIBITABLE EARLY REGIMENTAL PATRIOTIC FROM PENSACOLA, FLORIDA. ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC COVERS.

With original letter enclosure datelined "Camp Stephens, Pensacola, Nov. 12th /61" and written by a soldier to his mother. Obviously well-educated and far more articulate than the average Confederate soldier, the writer used four pages to wax eloquently about the war, but it is early and he had yet to see any fighting. Excerpts include: On the Federal landing at Beaufort, "Oh Ma it makes me shudder to think how Carolina blood will flow ere those infernal scoundrels are driven from our beloved soil."; On the North, "I have no doubt but what we have left enough brave men at home to teach Lincoln's abolitions hordes the madness and folly of attacking us in our homes and to let them know that it is just as much of an impossibility for Yankees and Carolinians to exist on the same soil as it is for them to free our negroes."; and continued fervent patriotism with many references to spilling blood and a final battle cry "I wear that Palmetto Tree on the front of my cap and I am going to wear it there when I get into a fight and let the Yanks know that I am not afraid to own my native state."

With 1965 P.F. certificate. Ex Birkinbine
