Limited Edition (1 of 1,000) No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read if at all. . Joseph Orville 'Jo' Shelby (December 12, 1830 â" February 13, 1897) was a noted Confederate cavalry general in the Trans-Mississippi Theater of the American Civil War. . In June 1865, rather than surrender, Shelby and approximately 1,000 of his remaining troops rode south into Mexico. For their determination not to surrender, they were immortalized as 'the undefeated'. A later verse appended to the post-war Confederate anthem, 'The Unreconstructed Rebel' commemorates the defiance of Shelby and his men: 'I won't be reconstructed, I'm better now than then. // And for a Carpetbagger I do not give a damn. // So it's forward to the frontier, soon as I can go. // I'll fix me up a weapon and start for Mexico.'.
