MS 1. 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.

$3,650.00

Note old tag from family which reads “This sword was presented to and carried by Capt Calvin A. Lewis (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”. All items are in superb untouched condition. The photo is particularly nice with its original frame. Display stand for belt included.
