Description:

Scott #6XU2 ATLANTA GEO, PAID 5 stampless handstamped Postmasters' Provisional cut from one envelope and mended into another envelope that is postmarked ATLANTA, Ga., AUG 9, 1861 to Manassas, Va. Who created this or when this cover was created is not known. The obvious is of a deceptive nature i.e. greed. I can only imagine two faulty covers joined together to make this "monster" cover.

This cover is addressed to Mr. Samuel H. Wiley, Hancock Volunteers, Capt. Smith, Camp Pickens, Pr. Wm., Co., Manassas, Va. Samuel joined the 15th Ga.,/Army of Northern Virginia on July 15, 1861 and appointed clerk Brigade Quartermaster October 10, 1862. Samuel and his regiment surrendered at Appomattox, Va., on April 9, 1865. The University of North Carolina has the Collection of Samuel Harris Wiley Papers, 1838-1865, which is available for further research.
