Civil War Confederate General D.H. Hill Autograph Letter Signed — Identifying Roanoke Island as the “weakest point” in North Carolina

Confederate General D.H. Hill autograph letter signed, to North Carolina Governor Henry Clark, dated 6 November 1861. Letter describes Roanoke as a weak point in the South’s Atlantic Coast defenses. Hill implies that he will urge the War Department to send reinforcements: “Dear Sir, Your very kind letter is most gratefully appreciated. I regret that I cannot go to Raleigh before the 17th or 18th. I am about to start to Roanoke Island, the most important and weakest point in N.C. Unless one or more Regiments can be sent there, the whole Albermarle region will be at the mercy of the enemy. Gen’l Huger will withdraw the Georgia Regiment, and then the Island must be lost. With great respect / D.H. Hill”. Hill’s assessment was accurate and prophetic — two months later, on 8 February 1862, Roanoke Island fell to Ambrose Burnside’s expeditionary force. Letter, on 2pp., has minor toning in spots, else near fine condition. Sold for $4,884.
