CONFEDERATE STATESMEN 
Clipped signatures on one piece of paper of two significant Confederate statesmen

Signed first by JUDAH P. BENJAMIN (1811-1884), Highly capable cabinet officer know as the "Brains of the Confederacy." He served as Attorney General, Secretary of War, and finally Secretary of State, in which capacity he secured numerous foreign loans for the CSA, without succeeding in obtaining foreign recognition. Also signed by JOHN SLIDELL (1793-1871), Confederate Commissioner to Europe whose seizure, along with James M. Mason, from the British mail steamer "Trent" caused an international incident during the Civil War. He spent the war years trying to gain aid and recognition for the Confederacy in Paris. He never returned to the US after the Civil War. A great little souvenir of the Confederate government signed by two of its most prominent members. $325.00
