The following item is an authentic Riggs National Bank check signed by Famed Morgan's Raider and Confederate States Officer, Lieutenant Colonel James B. McCreary of the 11th Kentucky Cavalry.
McCreary accompanied General John Hunt Morgan on many of his raids during the Civil War. In 1863 Morgan pushed into Northern territory with raids into Ohio.
It was there that the Battle of Buffington Island took place. It would be the only significant battle to take place in Ohio. It was near Cincinnati that McCreary would be captured and sent to Johnson's Island Prison in Ohio. He would later be sent to Columbus, Ohio where he was kept at The Ohio State Penitentiary. It would not be until 1864 that he would be released.
This Riggs Bank check is signed in the lower right hand corner by McCreary who was one of Morgan's highest ranking officers. McCreary signed this check in 1917, one year before his death.A great opportunity to own a true piece of Confederate History signed by an actual member of Morgan's Raiders. The check is in excellent preserved condition. Note: The last photo is of James McCreary later in life.
