MS 1. Fantastic Military Grouping identified to Capt. Calvin A. Laws of “Bowens Guards” (Chicago Illinois) and 1st Vermont Vol. Infantry Regt.

I have Captain Laws’ Field and Staff Officers Presentation Sword with original belt and hangers. his sash and a his photo. Note old tag from family which reads “This sword was presented to and carried by Capt Calvin A. Laws (your Grandma Fishers brother and your great uncle) when he was Captain in Bowens Guards in the Civil War. He enlisted first in Vermont and then again at Chicago Ill. as Captain. He received an honorable discharge. This sword is to become the property of my nephew Alexander F. Livingston at my decease, also the silk sash attached. Signed July 11, 1936. Walter E. Fisher”.

MS 3. Chickamauga Battlefield War Log fashioned into a Writing Desk Ornament with Inkwell.

Chickamauga Battlefield Park served as the site of Camp Thomas during the Spanish American War as well as headquarters of the 6th US Cavalry. Later it was a training camp for US soldiers in WW I and II. This souvenir inkwell stand was apparently made from items found in or near the Black Branch of Chickamauga Creek. Vines are used as the base and a “War Log” containing a fragment of an exploded 12 lb. Spherical Shell is the centerpiece. There are various Civil War and Spanish-American War relics attached throughout by small nails. Written on a horseshoe mounted in place behind the inkwell is “ONE LITTLE DROP OF INK HAS MADE A MILLION MEN THINK”. This is an impressive souvenir from the reunion era ca, 1900.

MS 5. US Enlistedman’s Forage Cap Identified to Private Lewis Cissell, Co. A, 52nd Indiana Vol. Infantry Regt.

High quality cap, totally untouched. Note strong blue color. Original chinstrap, tarred leather brim, intact sweatband with soldiers name and regiment written in brown ink. Linen liner completely intact with original “6 3/3 REGULAR” tag inside. All I could find on Cissell is that was from Loogootee Indiana. He enlisted on Feb. 1st, 1862 as a Private in Co. A of the 52nd Indiana Vol. Inf. Regt. He evidently re-enlisted on 2-27, 1864 and was discharged on 9-10, 1865 in Montgomery Al. He was transferred to Company I in May after the war was over. Identified Civil War headgear is rarely encountered for sale.

MS 7. US M-1841 12 lb. Mountain Howitzer Full Scale Reproduction with Ammunition Chest and all accessories.

If you are serious about shooting a full scale Civil War Cannon for display, competition, reenacting, protecting your compound or just good ole plain fun, here is the cannon for you. This gun has a solid steel tube coated with brass and was produced by the Trail Rock Ordnance Company of Rutledge TN. Everything you need to fire this weapon is included. The cannon has already been proved firing solid shot and canister effectively and accurately. Practically new with very little use. Included with the gun is a full scale ammunition chest, several 12 lb. canister rounds (one complete, the rest need to be filled with balls and crimped), molds for casting lead canister balls, pendulm hausse sight, thumb stall, lanyard, friction primers, primer pouch, vent pick, tompion, leather gloves, two bags (50 lbs) of black powder and several other accessories. Cannon is located in Mascot TN. and can be hauled in the back of a pickup truck or on a small trailer.

MS 8.  Confederate Issued Enfield Rifle Musket, Cartridge Box and Waist Belt carried by Private H.R. Tomlinson, 54th Ga. Vol. Infantry Regt.

You will sometimes see a Confederate Officer’s effects for sale but rarely will you ever see an Identified Confederate Enlistedman’s grouping like this. Purchased directly from the family by consignor. It consists of a Confederate issued “POTTS & HUNT LONDON” marked Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. with Confederate Viewer Stamp.  The butt plate tang is stamped “G” over “54” (54th Ga. Regt.) Overall this Enfield is in great condition. Ramrod is a replacement and there is a missing escutchion or retainer opposite the lock. Both of these issues can be easily rectified. Carved clearly into the butt stock is the soldier’s name “H.R. Tomlinson”. His Cartridge box is a stellar example. Russett Leather with tooled edges, hand sewn throughout and classic lead finial. Latch tab is broken. Perfectly intact single cartridge tin containing 5 original .577 Cal. Confederate Cartridges. These were X-Ray’d revealing two Enfield Cartridges and Three Three Ring Cartridges. Tomlinson’s Tarred Canvas Waist Belt is fantastic and totally untouched. The cast brass “Army of Tennessee” CS Plate is perfect with black enamel paint in the background and so called “spun” hooks. I have not researched Tomlinson’s records myself but according to the information provided, he was associated with and served under Capt. William Allen Fuller (of 1862 Great Locomotive Chase Fame) who was provided several Georgia Militia Soldiers to serve under him in his railroad duties. This is a killer Identified Confederate Grouping. Custom display case included.

Belt $12,500.00, Cartridge Box $6500.00. Enfield is sold.
