Miscellaneous Relics

MS 1. Confederate “Gardner Pattern” Canteen, marked “55th GA.” Regt. Captured at Cumberland Gap by “J. Kerwood”. 

A remarkably nice and untouched Confederate Canteen that was once carried by a member of the 55th GA. Vol. Infantry Regt. I have had this canteen in my collection for a very long time and evidently have miss-placed the provenance and research that was done on the Federal soldier “J. Kerwood”. I seem to recall that he was an Ohio soldier but that could be wrong. It did come from the family. He was in a unit that was involved with the second US occupation of Cumberland Gap. Anyway, this may be a fun research project. The canteen itself retains its original Confederate linen sling and hand carved wooded spout. Note the deep slick patina to the wood. The only clue as to who the Confederate soldier was that originally carried the canteen is the name “John” lightly inscribed on the opposite side of Kerwood’s. This canteen was lovingly cared for by the Kerwood family and is simply outstanding. Museum quality.

$5995.00

 

MS 2. Excavated 7th Iowa Vol. Infantry Regt. Insignia.

Unusually large size. Made of cast lead and found in the camp of the 7th Iowa near the Shiloh TN. Battlefield (Hagy Farm). The 8th Iowa regiment also produced similar insignia found nearby.

MS 3. Extremely rare Texas Militia Artillery Officer’s Bit and Bridle Harness with Reins.

Very fancy Civil War period brass “snake” bit with an inlaid silver star on both sides. Confederate regulation block letter “A” rosettes (identical to the Confederate artillery coat buttons) are lead backed and are similar to the contemporary US Artillery pattern. Leather harness is original and has some areas of re-enforcement and re-stitching. All brass adjuster buckle are present as is a diamond shaped escutcheon bearing the number “42”. This may be a one of a kind custom harness made for a high ranking Texas Artillery Officer  and it appears totally Confederate as well. Quite remarkable indeed!

$2650.00

 

CSBP 4. Dug Confederate Cavalry Saddle Shield.

These were mounted on the Richmond Arsenal saddles. Flawless condition. Found in Northern VA.

MS 5. US M-1850 Field and Staff Officer’s Sword and Belt Rig Identified to Col. Ira Washington Ainsworth, 177th New York Vol. Inf. Regt.

Very high quality identified grouping. The following is taken from The Union army: a history of military affairs in the loyal states, 1861-65 — records of the regiments in the Union army — cyclopedia of battles — memoirs of commanders and soldiers. Madison, WI: Federal Pub. Co., 1908. volume II. 
“One Hundred and Seventy-seventh Infantry,—Col., Ira W. Ainsworth; Lieut.-Cols., Frank Chamberlain, David M. Woodhall; Majs., David ‘M. Woodhall, Charles E. Davis. The nucleus of this regiment was the l0th National Guard, under Col. Ainsworth, which volunteered for nine months’ service and was accepted. It was recruited to the full number at Albany and vicinity, was organized at Albany, and there mustered into the U. S. service for nine months on Nov. 21, 1862. It left the state Dec. 16 for New Orleans, where it was assigned to the 3d brigade of Sherman’s division, afterwards the 3d brigade, 2nd division, 19th corps. It took part in skirmishes at McGill’s ferry, Pontchatoula, Civiques ferry and Amite river and was active throughout the siege of Port Hudson, where it fought gallantly in the general assault of May 27. Its loss during the siege was 23 killed and wounded. On the expiration of its term of service, the regiment returned to New York and was mustered out at Albany, Sept. 24, 1863”. Colonel Ainsworth’s sword and belt has been very well taken care of since the war ended. The photo copy I have, (included) shows Ainsworth wearing this very sword and belt rig. Sword retains original sharkskin grip and finely braided wire wrap. Gilt brass hand guard is sharply detailed and retains Ainsworth’s original Officer’s Sword Knot and Tassel. Throat washer present. Blade is superb with a mirror like lustre and sharp etching with patriotic themes on a frosted background. No maker mark present so most likely an imported blade. Steel scabbard has ornate brass mounts, drag and throat. Note blank presentation space on upper mount. The classic New York Militia belt rig was issued with the sword and still retains its original storage box with Colonel Ainsworth’s name written on the side in brown ink. The belt is simply superb. Supple black leather with intact brass hangers and fittings. The buckle has matching bench #18 stamped on the reverse, and on the keeper. Note applied silver “NY” and wreath. Truly exceptional!

This unit was part of the famous “Irish Brigade” in the Army of the Potomac. You can read a brief history of the regiment here in this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/69th_New_York_Infantry_Regiment. This interesting grouping came directly from the family and consists of a tintype photo of Dr. Purcell wearing a surgeon’s coat and smoking a pipe, two pairs of glasses, one of them with a hand written note from his son, William Purcell, dated July 4, 1903 stating that the glasses belonged to his father “late of the 69th N.Y Vol.”. There is an inkwell, Purcell’s green and white Medical Corps hat cord, a pair of Federal “gutterback” spurs with straps, compact mess kit, wallet, whisky flask, oil lamp (1863 Patent date on knob) and a small fancy storage box. I also have his Medical Corps green and white hat cord which I forgot to photograph (will add it soon).

This is the enlistedman’s version produced by the Memphis Novelty Works. Virtually identical to the cavalry officers spur that has “CS” cast on either side of the rowell shank and has stars at the terminus of each arm. Interestingly this one was found near Petersburg VA.
