The following item is an authentic signed document from The State of North Carolina. This is an election notice for the position of Justice of The Peace. The position was filled by an Alpheus Norwell for 6 years. Norwell was elected in 1877 and resigned in 1879. His resignation letter is attached to his election certificate. What makes this document significant is that it was signed by The North Carolina Secretary of State Joseph Adolphus Englehard. During The Civil War Englehard was a Major in the Confederate Army. He was also The Assistant Adjutant General for Pender’s Division and was present during The Battle of Gettysburg. The following is an excerpt of his description of Pickett’s Charge. Englehard, adjutant gen- eral of Gen. Pender’s division, says: The point at which the troops with me struck the enemy’s works project- ed farthest to the front. I recollect well, my horse having been shot, I leaned my elbow upon one of the guns of the enemy to rest, and watched with painful anxiety the fight on Pickett’s right, for on their success meant the tenableness of our position. Surround- ing me were soldiers of Trimble’s, of Pettigrew’s and of Pickett’s division, and it required all the resources at my command to prevent their follow- ing en masse the retreating enemy, and some did go so far that when we were compelled to withdraw they were unable to reach our lines, the enemy closing in from the right and left. We remained in quiet and undisputed pos- session of the enemy’s work, the men, flushed with victory, eager to press forward. Englehard survived Pickett’s Charge and The Civil War and went on to become North Carolina Secretary of State. This document is in very good condition and is signed by Englehard is dark period ink on the lower right. A great signature from a key member of The Confederate States Army during The Civil War. Note:The last picture is a photo of Englehard during the war.
