    Brigadier General D(aniel) M(arsh) Frost Signature T50 $50 1862 PF-1 Cr. 350 PMG Very Fine 30 EPQ.
    A better Fricke number having a R10 rarity rating, but what makes this note truly special is that it is signed vertically on the face to the left of the portrait, "D.M. Frost / Brig Gen'l / C.S.A." This signature matches perfectly a printed signature of his found on a carte de visite of Frost in his Confederate general's uniform. He was one of a few Confederate generals born in the North. He graduated from West Point in 1844 and fought in the Battle of Cerro Gordo in the Mexican-American War. Later on the Texas frontier, he almost lost an eye in an Indian skirmish and resigned as a first lieutenant in May of 1853. He became a Missouri Volunteer Militia brigadier general and in May 1861, he surrendered Camp Jackson in St. Louis to Union forces without firing a shot. He was paroled and on March 3, 1862. Frost was commissioned as a brigadier general in the Confederate Army. He commanded troops during the Battle of Elkhorn Tavern (Pea Ridge) in Arkansas. Frost's wife was forced from her St. Louis home because of her family's Confederate sympathies in August 1863, and she and her children moved to Canada. When Frost was informed of this, he left the army without permission and traveled to Canada to join his family. In December 1863, he was officially removed from the Confederate muster rolls. Frost and his family stayed in Canada for the remainder of the war and they did not return to Missouri until late in 1865. Frost died on October 29, 1900. Fortunately for today's Confederate collectors, someone was able to get General Frost's signature on a Confederate note.
