    Unique Ten Cent Fully Issued Stonewall Brigade Sutler Note

    Unknown Location, VA- Charles H. Page & Co., Sutler, Stonewall Brigade 10¢ Mar. 9, 1863 Jones UNL Keller UNL PMG Very Fine 20 Net
    This excessively rare example resides at the very pinnacle of sutler notes, and is a great Virginia rarity as well. Although 25 and 50 cent notes are listed in both the Jones and Keller references, the existence of a 10¢ denomination was not even hinted at until the emergence of this piece in the estate of an old time coin dealer. Unlike several of the handful of these notes to survive, it is not a remainder, but a fully issued piece. The Stonewall Brigade of the Confederate Army was one of the most famous combat units in United States military history. It was trained and first led by General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson , a professor from Virginia Military Institute (VMI). It was formed in April of 1861, and saw its first major action at the first Battle of Bull Run. Jackson's brigade was referred to informally as "Virginia's First Brigade" until July 21, 1861, when both the brigade and its general received the nickname "Stonewall." General Barnard E. Bee is said to have made his immortal remark as he rallied his brigade for the final phase of the battle. Although the exact words were not recorded at the time, he reputedly said, "There stands Jackson like a stone wall. Rally behind the Virginians!" From that time on the name stuck, making this brigade the only Confederate unit to be named after an individual to be recognized by the Confederate War Department. The brigade fought continuously from 1861 through 1864, when it was disbanded and its depleted ranks reformed into a small regiment after it was decimated during the Battle of the Wilderness. Of the 6,000 men who served in the Stonewall brigade during the war, by the time of the surrender at Appomattox Court House only 219 soldiers were left, none above the rank of captain. PMG has assigned a Net designation due to internal damage and paper thins due to careless dismounting. Having noted that, this note's historical importance and rarity will undoubtedly still attract significant bidding interest.
