A set of autographs from Confederate generals Lafayette McLaws (.75" x 3"), Matthew Whitaker Ransom (2.25" x 4.25"), Wade Hampton III(2" x 3.5"). In fine condition.

Lafayette McLaws (January 15, 1821 – July 24, 1897) was a United States Army officer and a Confederate general in the American Civil War. He served at Antietam and Fredericksburg, where Robert E. Lee praised his defense of Marye's Heights, and at Gettysburg, where his division made successful assaults through the Peach Orchard and Wheatfield, but was unable to dislodge Union forces from Cemetery Ridge. After the Knoxville Campaign, he was court-martialed for inefficiency, though this was overturned for procedural reasons. Finally, he was sent to his native Georgia to resist Sherman's March to the Sea but retreated through the Carolinas, losing many men through desertion, and was presumed to have surrendered with Joseph E. Johnston in April 1865.

Matthew Whitaker Ransom (October 8, 1826 – October 8, 1904) was a general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War and a Democratic U.S. senator from the state of North Carolina between 1872 and 1895.

Wade Hampton III (March 28, 1818 – April 11, 1902) was an American military officer who joined the Confederate States of America in rebellion against the United States during the American Civil War. He later had a career as a South Carolina politician. Hampton came from a wealthy planter family. During the American Civil War, he joined the Confederate cavalry, where he was a lieutenant general. At the end of the Reconstruction era, with the withdrawal of U.S. soldiers from South Carolina, Hampton was a member of the Redeemers, White Southerners who campaigned to restore white supremacy in the state. Hampton was elected governor, serving from 1876 to 1879. After that, he served two terms as U.S. Senator from 1879 to 1891.
