P.M.Slaughter

Maj. & C.S.

Received at Jefferson Co, Va. This 18th Day of July 1863 of Maj. P. M. Slaughter, C.S. Two Hundred twenty five dollars in full of the above account.

Major General Richard H Anderson would be criticized for his role following the Battle of Gettysburg. His brigades would participate in the waning minutes of Pickett’s Charge before being repulsed and the Army of Northern Virginia retreated back into Virginia. This flour would no doubt be destined for the troops which survived the battle and returned to Virginia just days earlier. Very neat document!
