Wounded 3 times during the War Between the States!

Frequently led General N.B. Forrest's immortal Kentucky Brigade into battle!

United States Congressman from Kentucky


(1827-81) Born in Hickman County, Kentucky, he completed preparatory studies; studied law; was admitted to the bar in 1852 and began practice at Clinton, Hickman County, Ky. Taking a leading place in the community he was chosen as the first Sheriff of Hickman County and served, 1851-1852. He was a member of the Kentucky State House of Representatives, 1857-1858. Crossland was among the first to organize companies for service in the Confederate States Army, and he was commissioned captain of the 1st Kentucky Infantry on April 23, 1861. He was soon promoted to major of the regiment and then to lieutenant colonel on April 19, 1862. The 1st Kentucky Infantry, was disbanded on May 14, 1862, after serving their one year term of enlistment, and Crossland was then commissioned to be the colonel of the 7th Kentucky Infantry on May 20, 1862. He commanded the regiment at the battle's of Baton Rouge, Corinth, Champion's Hill, and Jackson. Early in 1864, the 7th, 3rd and 8th Kentucky regiments were mounted and joined the command of the legendary Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. He served under Forrest until the end of the war, participating in the battle of Brice's Crossroads and in other famous combats in Mississippi, the operations on the Tennessee River, the cavalry fighting of General John Bell Hood in Tennessee, including the defense of the rear guard on the retreat, and in the engagement with General Wilson's Union cavalry forces in the spring of 1865, when he was in command of the famous Kentucky Brigade. He received a serious wound at the battle of Paducah, Kentucky, on March 25, 1864, and barely escaped murder by local guerrillas the following night while recovering from his wounds at a nearby farm. He was also seriously wounded on July 15, 1864, at Old Town Creek, Mississippi, and again on November 21, 1864, at Butler Creek, Alabama. He surrendered on May 6, 1865, at Columbus, Mississippi. After the war Colonel Crossland returned to his home and was elected judge of the court of common pleas of the first judicial district of Kentucky, in August 1867, and he served on the bench until his resignation on November 1, 1870, to run for a seat in the U.S. Congress. Elected as a Democrat, he served from 1871-1875. He then resumed the practice of law in Mayfield, Graves County, Ky.; was elected judge of the circuit court for the first judicial district of Kentucky in August 1880, and served until his death in Mayfield, Ky., on September 11, 1881. He is buried in Maplewood Cemetery, in Mayfield.

Signature as a Member of the U.S. Congress: 3 1/2 x 1 1/8, in ink, Edward Crossland. Imprinted above his signature is "HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES," and at the lower right corner is, "M.[ember] C.[ongress]" Cut slightly irregular. Very desirable Kentucky Confederate related item.
