Lot 446: ANS signed "Jos. Brown," one page, 5 x 3, in full, "A piece of the old Flag of the 14th New Jersey regt, carried in many a Battle," with a loose 3.5? long fragment of maroon flag fabric and a golden braided thread. The note is affixed to the reverse of a letter from Brown to his mother sent home from the front, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 5 x 7.75, March 6, 1865, in which he apologizes for not writing more often and sends some money so she can buy him some tobacco and pens. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, tape-repaired tears, moderate to heavy soiling, and some chipping and toning to edges. Brown served in the 14th New Jersey from 1862 through the end of the war and was one of just one hundred men from the regiment to survive. They saw substantial action throughout, including at the Wilderness, Cold Harbor, Monocacy, Shenandoah Valley, Cedar Creek, and Petersburg.
