Sworn statement signed by Robert E. Lee in 1838. The future Confederate General spent approximately eleven years serving in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and was promoted to the rank of Captain in 1837, where he oversaw projects related to the navigation of the Mississippi River. The sworn statement, clipped from a larger document, lists certain articles received by Lee's regiment upon the verso. Document lists the date of 1838 and reads; ''I Certify / That the articles charged in the within account have been received, were necessary for, and have been or will be applied, for the objects within stated, to the Improvement of the Harbor of St. Louis.'' Lee signs ''R.E. Lee / Captain'' underneath the declaration. Measures 8'' x 2.5''. Toning and slight rust stain to upper left hand. Very good.
