Killed in action at the battle of Franklin, Tennessee!

Extremely rare signature!


(1831-64) Born in Copiah County, Mississippi, he was educated at Oakland College, in Rodney, Miss. He moved to Texas in the early 1850's establishing himself at Waco, studied the law, was admitted to the bar, and served as chief justice of McLennan County from 1856-58. He recruited the Waco Guards in 1861, and was elected major of the 7th Texas Infantry in October of that year. He was captured at Fort Donelson, Tenn., and after his exchange he was promoted to colonel of the 7th Texas Infantry. He served with his regiment in Mississippi with General Joseph E. Johnston's Army of Tennessee during the Vicksburg campaign, and then led them in the battles of Raymond and Jackson. Granbury fought in the battle of Chickamauga where he was wounded, and then participated in the siege of Chattanooga, and the battle of Missionary Ridge. When Brigadier General James Argyle Smith was wounded at Chattanooga, Granbury led the brigade in the retreat from Chattanooga. Division commander, Major General Patrick R. Cleburne, commended Colonel Granbury for his handling of the brigade, and on February 29, 1864, he was promoted to brigadier general. He then led the Texas brigade throughout the Atlanta campaign. His brigade was composed of eight under strength Texas regiments, including the 7th Texas. He fought with particular distinction at the battle of New Hope Church. At the battle of Franklin, Tenn., on November 30, 1864, General John Bell Hood ordered 18 brigades to make numerous, hopeless, frontal assaults against well fortified Union positions occupied by forces under the command of Major General John M. Schofield. Grandbury's brigade charged the center of the Federal breastworks and he was killed near the Union lines along with Major General Patrick R. Cleburne.

Signature: 2 1/2 x 1, in ink, H.B. Granbury. Very fine. Extremely rare.
