Item #89909 Nice pocket bible belonging to Mathias J. Barkalow of the 29th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry. Mathias would muster with Company E in September, 1862. The regiment would see their first action at Fredericksburg where they would be positioned within the city while the battle raged on along the slopes. They would be the last regiment to evacuate the city on December 15th and come under heavy artillery fire as they crossed the pontoon bridges but would suffer not a single casualty. They would next see action at Chancellorsville losing a handful of men to Confederate artillery fire. Following the battle they were head for home as their term of enlistment had expired. Mathias would survive both battles in which the regiment would fight and was mustered out of service on July 6, 1863. This example is dated 1862. A nice period pencil inscription inside the front cover reads "Matthias J. Barkalow September the 28th, 1862. Presented to him the day he left Camp Frelinghuysen for the battlefield". They would leave the camp on October 9, 1862. This one also has some other family information written inside of it noting names and dates of births and deaths. The red Moroccan leather cover is intact but it is missing the closure tab. You can definitely tell this one was carried in his pocket for some time. It's quite weathered. Neat piece. $275.00

                       
                                    
                         
Item #21131 Outstanding war date cap box attributed to Sergeant Robert B. Robinson of the 5th Vermont Volunteer Infantry. Robert would muster with Company K in September, 1861. After spending the winter of 1861 - 62 at Camp Griffin, the regiment would see their first action at Savage Station at the of the Peninsular Campaign. They would be slaughtered. The regiment would suffer the highest rate of casualties during the battle of any other Vermont regiment in any one single engagement during the entire course of the war. Half of the 400 men that went into the battle were killed or wounded in less than 30 minutes. Robert himself would be among that number. Wounded during the fight he would fall into enemy hands on June 29th. Almost a month later, while still nursing his wound he would receive his parole. The wound however lingered and proved serious enough to receive a medical discharge that October. Thus putting an end to Robert's military career after his one and only fight. Super nice cap box which Robert has stenciled inside the front flap "R.B. Robinson Co.K 5th Regt Vt.". the leather is very good on this one and still quite pliable. Both belt loops are intact but you can see that Robert made a field repair to the bottom of one loop with a piece of wire where the bottom of the loop had come unattached. He has also attached a rosette to the front flap. The wool is intact in the interior pocket and the vent pick is present as well. Absolutely killer cap box that saw some good use and a little soldiers ingenuity. This one does come with some paper work on Robert as well. $475.00 SALE PENDING!
 
         
     

Item #46554 Stunning albumen of an unidentified Federal lieutenant. The clarity of this view is just magnificent! Dressed in his frock with a very nice view of his 1st lieutenants shoulder boards.

Measures 12" x 10.5". $350.00

                                            

                                                 
         

Item #28898 Here's a really neat group of items pertaining to Private John Short of the 42nd Pennsylvania Infantry. John had a very busy military career. John Short was also known by another name which is noted in his service records under the alternative name of John Donahoe. While "John Short" is not listed in the 42nd Pennsylvania, "John Donahoe" is. He would muster as a corporal with the regiment in May, 1861. By November of 1862 he had been discharged for a disability. It appears he next enlisted in the 44th Pennsylvania Infantry under the name John Donahoe as well in July, 1863. His enlistment would be short. He would be discharged the following month. He would next enlist in the 169th New York Infantry under the name of "John Short". Here his last name is listed under the alternative last names of "Short", "Donahue" and Donhoe". Why he would use so many last names to enlist seems to be a mystery but the military was obviously aware of it. Very confusing. He would serve with the 169th from August of 64' until his discharge in June, 1865. This grouping consists of a carte view of John, his brass stencil and his bible which he stenciled with the very stencil included here. The carte view dates to his time serving with the 42nd. Brass insignia pinned to the front of his cap reads "42 P.V.I." and is back marked out of York, PA. The stencil itself measures apprx. 1" x 2.5". The bible is dated 1862 and is in remarkable condition. The binding is solid on this one with both the front and back cover nearly immaculate. Paper work is included with this one which lists his numerous last names and enlistments. Really neat grouping. $500.00

                                            
                                            
                           
 Item #90012  Rare and very nice Casey's Infantry Tactics manual, Volume III, dated 1862. This one is identified to Brigadier General William F Bartlett of Massachusetts. If you have never heard of William Francis Bartlett I would suggest googling the man or reading "The Story of Brigadier General William Francis Bartlett". If ever there was a soldier that lived it was William Bartlett. I will not list all of his deeds of valor here as there are many. Bartlett would originally take a commission as Captain of Co. I., 20th Massachusetts in August, 1861. Bartlett would lead his company into their first battle at Ball's Bluff in October, 1861. The following April, Bartlett and his men would take part in the Siege of Yorktown. On the 24th of April, Bartlett would be shot behind the left knee by a Confederate picket. Miraculously he did not bleed to death but the wound proved severe enough that the leg would need to be amputated. He would return to Boston to recover from the wound through the summer of 1862. That fall, rather than re-joining his old company, he would resign and take a commission as colonel and be tasked with raising a new regiment which would become the 49th Massachusetts Infantry. Bartlett would once again lead his regiment into battle. This time at Port Hudson. Due to his leg amputation he would need to remain on horseback during the battle making for an easy target. During one of the assault's on May 27th he would be wounded once again. This time a bullet would shatter his left wrist and buckshot would pepper his right leg. Surgeon's would be able to remove the bullet from his wrist and save his hand but the wounds would effectively put the colonel out of commission for the remainder of the regiments 9 month service. While still recovering from the wounds he began organizing a second regiment which would become the 57th Massachusetts Infantry. Bartlett would be placed in command of the regiment once it was completed. The regiment would join the Army of the Potomac as part of the IX Corps. They would see a relentless stream of battles during the Overland Campaign. During the Battle of the Wilderness he would be wounded once again. This time a bullet would strike him in the head. Sent home to recover once more he would receive a promotion to brigadier general and would return to the Army in July, 1864. He would be placed in command of the 1st Brigade in the 1st Division of the IX Corps. He would play a small role in the planning of the Battle of the Crater. After the detonation, Bartlett's brigade would take part in the failed attack. During the battle he would have his prosthetic leg shot off and was unable to retreat with the rest of his men. Left behind he was captured by Confederate troops and sent to Libby Prison. He would spend 2 months there but would fall severely ill. Released through a prisoner exchange, it would be months before he was fully recovered. Bartlett would return to the Army in June, 1865 and be placed in command of the 1st Division of the IX Corps. He would remain in the Army for another year before eventually resigning in July, 1866. President Andrew Jackson would nominate Bartlett for the honorary grade of brevet major general of U.S. Volunteers in January, 1866 which the Senate would confirm two months later. This tactic's manual dated to his time with the 49th Massachusetts. Singed in period ink inside the front cover "Colonel W.F. Bartlett 49th M.V.". This one is in exceptional shape as well. Great item from a true soldier! $425.00 SOLD!       

     
Item #10010 Discharge certificate for John Frantz of the 17th Wisconsin Infantry. John would be drafted in Company I of the regiment early in October, 1864. He would join the regiment in time to take part in Sherman's March to the Sea, the Siege of Savannah, Carolina's Campaign and several other before his discharge in July, 1865. This one does come with a folder of research material and want scant amount of his service records were available on him. $65.00
 
            
      
Item #89901 Beautiful rosewood fife. This is one of the nicer one's I have had in. Measure approximately 16.5" long. Wonderful aged patina to the wood. German silver ferrules on either end. This one does have the brass ring centered in between the finger holes.  Sharp looking fife. $150.00

                                    
      
Item #22312 Casey's Infantry Tactics manual Volume 1. This one saw some use. Lots of wear and weathering to this one. Published in 1863. There is a drawing of a floor plan inside the front cover which may be a depiction of a soldiers barracks. The circles I presume were to indicate windows. No id on this one unfortunately. $85.00


              
          
Item #67600 Beautifully framed, war date letter signed by Confederate General Pierre G. T. Beauregard. 7.5" x 9" letter, written on both sides of a single sheet of paper. This one is dated Fairfax County Court House, Virginia, September 27, 1861. The letter itself from General Beauregard to General Milledge Bonham. The first page of the letter written by a clerk of Beauregard reading,

 "Fairfax C. H. Va. Sept 27, 1861 Genl G. T. Beauregard to Genl M. L. Bonham. In regards to occupy Lewisville. Detailed instructions to be sent him. In the mean time he is to occupy a position at or near the old court house".

General Beauregard has then penned his orders to General Bonham reading, 

"Fairfax C. H. Sept 27th, 1861. 6 1/2 h P.M. General, Your note from near Lewisville has just been received. It is not desirable that you should occupy the latter place. Detailed orders will be sent you as to your future movements. In the mean time you need not advance any further than the best position about the old court house. in front or near it. I have ordered your commissary to send two or three days provisions for your brigade and that of Genl. Jones. Respy your obt servt. Genl. Comdy 1st Corps A. of P."

Beauregard has then penned a postscript which reads,

"P.S. Since writing the above you're orders have arrived and you will act accordingly, resuming with the balance of your brigade your former position at or about Flat Hill. Gen. Jones will return to Germantown". He has signed it with his initials "G.T.B"

Professionally matted and framed with a period book plate portrait of Beauregard. A specially cut window on the reverse permits viewing of the letter from both sides. Wonderful war date letter by one of the wars most recognizable Confederate generals! $1500.00

 Item #77977 Super nice id tag belonging to Jacob Boice of the 76th New York Volunteer Infantry. Jacob would muster with Company E in October, 1861. At 42 years of age at enlistment he was far above the average age for those enlisting in the service. The regiment would spend the winter of 1862 performing duty in the vicinity of Washington. That August they would see their first action at Manassas and suffer high casualties. The hard campaigning seems to have taken it's toll on the aged Boice. Late in November, 1862 he would be discharged for disability while laying in a convalescent camp in Virginia. It appears that he may have re-enlisted in the 6th New York Heavy Artillery not long after his discharge eventually ending up in the VRC during the summer of 1863. His service does however need further research. Beautiful aged patina to this one. The reverse is stamped "J. BOICE CO. E 76TH REG N.Y.S.V. RICHFRORD". Sharp looking tag! $1190.00


         
Item #33432 Rare Richards Patent Mess Set. These were produced by W. H. Richards of Boston, Massachusetts beginning in the summer of, 1861. Consisting of a fork, spoon and knife combination that easily slide together. Very compact and functional for a soldier in the field with limited space for carrying such necessary utensils. This one is marked on both sides "W.H. Richards Patent July 23, 1861 Boston". This one looks like it saw some use too! These are getting pretty hard to find anymore. $395.00 

   



           
   
    
Item #33543 Extremely nice M1851 Colt Navy .36 caliber percussion revolver. All matching serial numbers on this one of "194100". Mid 1860's manufacture. This one did have a naval scene on the cylinder at one time but most of it has been worn away. Very nice dark patina. Completely functional with the action just about as tight and crisp as the day it was made. Everything is solid on this one. Entirely complete with all actions functioning and tight. This one does come with the original Colt .36 caliber bullet mold and holster. Mold is stamped Colts Patent and it functional with a beautiful patina. The holster is worn but complete and still pliable. Closure tab is present as well as the flap with no tears. The belt loop on the reverse is also present. No base plug however. Super nice set that saw some good use and is still functional! $3500.00


Item #24421 Discharge certificate for Nathaniel Perry Clark of the 8th Iowa Volunteer Infantry. Nathaniel would muster with Company I in mid September, 1861. The following year he would spend several months in the hospital recovering from illness beginning in April and running through June. That  June he would be detailed as a cook in the hospital but by July was sick again in an Iowa hospital. This time up until August of 1862. That September he would be detailed as a nurse at a hospital located in Albia, Iowa. Nathaniel would re-enlist in January, 1864. October of that year would find him sitting in prison for reportedly shooting Colonel Boutin. I'm not sure of the circumstances surrounding the incident but it appears he was sentenced to extra duty at regimental headquarters for about 4 months beginning in late 1864 and running through February, 1865. The remainder of his service either sick in the hospital or working as a nurse in various hospitals. He would be discharged in April, 1866 at Davenport, Iowa. This one comes with a stack of paper work on Nathaniel including full service records. $95.00

Item #37665 Rare Casey's Infantry Tactic's Manual, Volume III which belonged to Medal of Honor recipient Albert E. Fernald of the famed 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry. Fernald would muster as a sergeant with Company K in August, 1862. He would be promoted to 1st sergeant in 1863 and then to 1st lieutenant in 1864. The 20th Maine's claim to fame as most know was it's defense on Little Round Top during the Gettysburg Battle. Fernald would survive the battle unscathed. He would later be awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Battle of Five Forks. "First Lieutenant Albert E. Fernald, of Company F, Twentieth Maine Infantry, was with his regiment in the last line when the battle opened, but was in the first line when the works were reached. The left of the regiment struck the works first, he being somewhat in advance, and as he cleared the breastworks ran toward a body of Confederates with a rebel color-bearer. He rushed among the crowd and secured the flag before even his regiment had gotten into the works.". Fernald would serve until his discharge in June, 1864. The bulk of Fernald's personal effects from the war currently resides in a private collection including his Casey's Infantry Tactics Manual Volume I. This one is simply signed in ink inside the front cover "A. E. Fernald 20th Me. Regt". His Volume I is signed similarly. This example is in quite good shape with a very solid binding. Wonderful piece from one of the war's most well known units. $800.00


Item #36332 Exceptionally rare and outstanding pair of Civil War Marine brass shoulder scales. If that were not rare enough, they are still housed in the original box and packaging! These are absolutely pristine and complete. Marine shoulder boards differed from the standard shoulder boards in that there are 8 rows of scales rather then 7. There is also an attachment under the pan to allow for the attachment of the green fringe which was unique to the Marines. Both are complete with the thumb screws as well. Extremely rare and unique item! $650.00  
                                       
                  
         
Item #13321 Very nice, early US waist belt plate. Probably one of the most iconic and recognizable items associated with the war. This one has the more desirable puppy paw style hooks on the reverse. Manufacturer's imprint on the reverse by W. H. Smith of Brooklyn. The initials "H E H" are also carved into the back of this one. Some typical dings and dents on the face of the plate that you would expect to see with a nice, used plate. This one's a real dandy! $395.00




Item #44351 Very nice original US oval waist belt plate on the original leather belt. Arrow style hooks on the reverse of the plate. Nice aged patina to the face of the plate. The leather is very pliable on this one but a bit dry. The belt itself measures about 30 1/2". The keeper has been cut off as they often times are. This one definitely saw some use. Overall a nice belt. $375.00

                                                      

                     
Item #75490 Post war presentation walking stick presented to Captain Joseph Waldo Denny formerly of the 25th Massachusetts Infantry. It was presented to Denny by former fellow member of the 25th John Moulton. Denny would first serve in the 6th Massachusetts Infantry, a 30 day regiment in mid April, 1861. There he would take part in the Baltimore riots before mustering out in August. That September he would join the 25th Massachusetts, Company K and would receive promotions to 3rd lieutenant and captain by the end of the year. Moulton would serve under Denny as a private in Company K and would be captured at Drewey's Bluff on May 16, 1864. He would spend the remainder of the war as a prisoner of war in Wilmington, North Carolina. This one measures 34" long with the top mounted with this wonderful 10k gold pommel. The inscription reads "To J Waldo Denny Late Capt. Co. K, 25th M.V. By J. B. Moulton Late Priv. same Co.". It appears to be made of Mahogany with the opposite end brass tipped. The pommel measures 2 1/4 long and a 1 1/4 across. Beautiful piece. $1650.00



Item #49866 This is a very interesting and unique piece. Hand cut copper GAR piece in the shape of the symbol for the 17th Corps. Measure 18" long by 12" tall. Nice aged patina with a hole at the top and bottom where it was once secured to the wall. Hand painted on the front "GAR 17th Corps War 1861-65". Really neat piece with cross over folk art appeal. $295.00


Item # 89700 Brass stencil belonging to James Miner of the 10th Vermont Volunteer Infantry. James would muster with Company C starting in September, 1862. The 10th Vermont would see considerable action during their enlistment. Fighting in no less than 15 major engagements. The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg and a number of other significant battles. James would apparently manage to survive unscathed and would be mustered out in June, 1865. This is one of the larger stencils you will see measuring 2" x 6". Generally these measure just a couple of inches long. Some deterioration to the brass on the far end of the first name. Quite rare in this size. $395.00

        
Item #28809 Scare unissued heavy artillery powder bag. Made of a light wool it would have been filled with powder, tied off and then loaded into the cannon. It would have been then pierced prior to firing with a friction primer. Measures 19" x 16". A must for your artillery collection. $110.00

            
            
Item #18886 This is a super neat old relic board pertaining to Chattanooga. This one measures about 18" x 10 1/2". It features 49 various bullets picked up off the battlefield some 50 years after the Battle of Chattanooga. The battle would be fought over several days in late November, 1863. They are mounted to a solid slab of walnut. It is missing several of the bullets and most of these are heavily oxidized after being exposed to the air for the last 100+ years. An old note at the top of the board reads, "Bullets from Chatanooga. Picked up 50 years after the battle. Arranged to show the odd shapes that they often take when fired in action. A.G. McKee". McKee would operate a business as a pharmacist in Middletown, Connecticut. This one does have an old tag on the reverse which identified it as belonging to Mckee. Really neat piece. $450.00

            

           
Item #29229 Drop dead beautiful OVM box plate. Hard to find, rare plate and this one is a beauty! This one was recovered in the area of McClean and Penn Laird, Virginia many years ago. Wonderful dug patina on this one. No dings or dents to the edge. One very minor pimple on the face but otherwise one of the nicest dug OVM plates I have seen. The hooks have rusted off the back as to be expected in a dug example. About as nice of a dug example that you are going to find! $1800.00





Item #89891 Very nice Whitney Pocket Revolver. This would be the first model, 5th type in .31 cal. 5- shot revolver with the 3" inch octagonal barrel. These were very popular during the war. Serial number #2270 which places it as a late 1850's, early 1860's production date. This one grades very good. Everything is tight and functioning. Some very slight pitting but nothing serious. Nice polished walnut grips with wear along the bottom edge which is typically seen. Most of the cylinder scene is gone but you can see some remnants of it. The original bluing is gone but overall has this nice grayish tone. Loading lever functions as does the hammer and trigger. Cylinder does rotate when the hammer is cocked. Overall a very nice revolver. $695.00




Item # Nice Burnside carbine box. Both belt loops and roller buckles are present on this one. Wood insert is present also. The closure tab for the exterior cover is however missing. The small exterior pouch inside the front flap has for the most part deteriorated as you can see. What is left of it is tucked inside the box. No makers mark on this one. Leather is not terribly stiff. Decent carbine box. $150.00

   Item #37633 Nice Marston & Knox double-action pepperbox pistol. This one is in really nice shape. Produced in New York City during the 1850's. Six-shot revolver in .31 caliber. 3 1/2 inch ribbed barrel on this example. Barrel is clearly stamped "Marston & Knox New York". The engraving's are a bit worn. Grips are in super nice condition. The trigger and hammer assembly work perfectly. The mechanism for the barrel rotation is however broken and you can rotate the barrel by hand. Nice aged and uncleaned patina on this one. Neat little pistol. $575.00


Item #44300 War date envelope cover addressed Lieutenant William LeRoy Broun of the Virginia Albemarle Light Artillery. This one is dated August 10, 1861. Broun would be commissioned a lieutenant in July, 1861. He would be in command of the regiment by at least late December, 1861 but presumably he was in command some time before that. In September he would be promoted to lieutenant colonel by Secretary of War Randolph and placed in command of the Richmond Arsenal. He would remain in charge of the Arsenal up until Lee's surrender. Post war he would serve as the President for Auburn University. There are some other known war date letters written by Broun floating around out there some where. This one was sent to Richmond and then Jamestown. Both of which have been scratched out with a notation reading "No such company at Jamestown". He was in fact at Yorktown at this time so whether or not this eventually made it to him is unclear. This one is most just the front of the envelope with most of the back missing. Still a rare find. $120.00

       

Item #66875 Very historically important and extremely rare war date naval document signed by no less than 3 admirals from the Union Navy! Dated September 3, 1864. Signed by Gideon Wells, David Farragut and Hiram Paulding. This particular dispatch was sent to William Stollery by Gideon Wells appointing him to 3rd Assistant Engineer and ordering him to report Admiral Paulding. It reads "Proceed to New York by the 14th inst and report to Rear Admiral Paulding Brooklyn Navy Yard on that day for a passage in the Union to the West Gulf Squadron. Upon your arrival report to Rear Admiral Farragut for such duty as he may assign you." Admiral Pauling signature can be seen on the top left in bold ink reading "H. Paulding Commdg". Paulding was appointed by Lincoln in 1861 to assist in building a war time fleet and was put in charge of the New York Navy Yard. Later he was appointed by Gideon Wells to the Ironclad Board and under his direction a number of ironclads would be built. The signature of Gideon Wells himself can be seen quite clearly here. A former resident of England, Stollery would be commissioned a 3rd Assistant Engineer on the date shown here. He would have prior service in the Navy serving on board the USS HARTFORD and USS MANHATTEN before receiving a promotion and proceeding to the West Gulf Blockading Squadron. He would be discharged in October, 1865. Farragut's signature can be seen on the opposite side although faint. There is also a line written above his signature but it is extremely faint and difficult to make out. Superb and rare document signed by 3 of the most important men in the Union Navy at that time. Fold lines are present but there is no separation. Extremely rare piece. $2500.00 

             
              
Item #22155 Standard issue M1855 smooth side canteen. This one is missing the sling and the cover as they often times are. Some dents to the one side as expected. Missing the stopper as well. The spout on this one has "IOWA" crudely carved into it. Good canteen at a good price! $125.00
    

        
                     
                            
                         
                         
                      
                       
Item #33234 Outstanding grouping pertaining to two Burnside brothers from Hannibal, New York. Consisting of an albumen view of both Robert and Samuel Burnside as well as a ninth plate ambrotype of Robert. Also included is this superb cap which belonged to Robert. These items were purchased from the family estate as well as a number of items belonging to a third brother although those items are not included here. Samuel is shown at bottom dressed in his infantry frock. He would muster with the 110th New York Infantry serving in Company H starting in June, 1862. His service however would be very short lived. He would fall ill with disease and die just two months later on October 25, 1862 in Baltimore, Maryland. The second albumen view of Robert was made from the ambrotype view included here. At some point sergeant chevrons were added to the albumen view. A rank he would obtain in mid May, 1863. Robert would muster along side his brother in the same company and regiment as Samuel on the same day. Robert would out live his brother. But not by much. He would also contract a disease which would claim his life. Almost exactly one year after his enlistment. He would succumb to the disease in a general hospital in Baton Rouge. Included is Robert's cap which is in superb condition. Very little mothing to this example. Brass company letter "H" and his regiment designation "110" are pinned to the top. The chin strap is held into place by two New York state buttons. The visor is nice and solid on this one with no separation from the body of the cap. Sweatband and lining are in place as well. Very nice cap that appears to have seen little service. Superb grouping of two brothers who never returned home. This does come with service records for both brothers. Rare piece! $3750.00 SOLD!


     
      
   
Item #89772 Very nice leather cartridge box for the Burnside carbine. This one is stamped by the maker Hoover & Calhoun of New York. This is a very nice box. The leather is very pliable with very little crazing. Both belt loops are intact but it is missing one roller buckle. The closure tab is present and in very good shape. The interior wood block for holding the ammunition is present but there is some wood loss where a mouse got in there. Overall a very solid box. $350.00

                                    
Item #68711 Silver id shield for the famed 3rd New Jersey Cavalry "Butterfly Hussars". This would have been worn by one of the cavalryman like the one pictured in the image below who served in that regiment. Made out of silver. The center shield is roughly the size of a quarter with the entire piece overall about the size of a 50 cent piece. Still retains the original pin back which is very solid. This one belonged to an un-named member of Co. A. Very nice and rare badge which this photo does not do justice. $1200.00
