Abstract:

Robert E. Lee writes to Cocke in a letter dated 1861 May 13, about his demotion in rank from General to Lieutenant Colonel, explaining that it resulted from an ordinance that all military appointments of the Governor of Virginia be submitted to the Convention for confirmation, and noting that Generals Gwynn, Johnston and Ruggles had also had their rank reduced. In addition he explains why Col. T. J. Jackson did not report to Cocke in person before assuming command at Harper's Ferry and concludes that he recognizes Cocke's "merit, patriotism & devotion to the State" and hopes he will continue to "advance the Cause...."

In a letter, 1861 Sep. 22, Cocke submits his resignation to General P.G.T. Beauregard as he feels he can render the cause better service as a civilian than in the army with his current rank and position.

Beauregard replies to Cocke, 1861 Sep. 22, that he will hold Cocke's resignation for a few days until he hears from the War Dept. concerning his request to review Cocke's rank.
