Presented here is an original document titled “TRI-MONTHLY Return of CAV. CORPS” of the Army of Tennessee commanded by Maj. Gen. Jos. Wheeler / Jul 10, 1863”. This rare, matted, oversized document, in fine original condition, measures approximately 25”wide x 17” high. Document is housed between two large pieces of clear acrylic which measure 29¾” wide x 17½” high. Document can be viewed from either front or back.

The large paper specimen is pre-printed and resembles a typical military document (morning report) with rows and columns delineated into a matrix with the pertinent data for the unit filled in. Left-most portion of the doc lists the various commands in Wheeler’s Cavalry Corps in a vertical column 14” long. Remainder of the report shows the various pre-printed ranks from ‘General’ to ‘Privates’ listed in multiple columns including ‘Present’, ‘Absent’, and all individual ranks of the Army of Tennessee’s Cavalry Corps, including officer’s and men’s horses. Handwritten in black ink and filled into the matrix are the various quantities of men and horses listed for a specific column. Listed in the bottom (lower) portion of the document are: Station…Trenton, GA; Date… July 10th, 1863; Wm E. Wailes….A.A.A.G.; Gen Jos Wheeler, Major…. Gen, Commanding.

Paper document is in remarkably well kept condition overall but suffers from light to moderate foxing and watermarks. Upper corners exhibit slight tearing with some insect damage. Scattered areas of minor creasing and foxing in the body and along the border margins are visible. This fine, original Confederate, wartime, ‘tri-monthly return document’ for Major General Joseph Wheeler’s Cavalry Corps offers any Confederate cavalry enthusiast the rare opportunity to enhance any Civil War collection or display.
