Physical Appearance: The speech is Col. John S. Mosby's written Farewell Address to his troops on April 21, 1864 [sic - should be 1865]. Note the interesting mistake in the date. Mosby disbands his ranger organization "in preference to surrendering it to our enemies." The address is a photocopy, not in Mosby's hand.
