Refrigerator magnet pictures an 1863 call to arms in Richmond, Virginia from the Confederacy during America's Civil War.  At the time the broadside was printed, June 27, 1863, the Gettysburg battle was  three days off.  The Confederacy was still optimistic about victory.
Joseph Mayo (1795-1872) served as the mayor of Richmond from 1861 to 1865.  In 1865 seventy year old Mayo objected to burning Richmond's tobacco supplies, a fire that got out of control and resulted in the destruction of over 54 blocks and 800 buildings.  On April 2, 1865 he was part of a group that formally surrendered the city to the Union army.
