US 15” TRIPLE FUSED RODMAN CANNONBALL. Excavated. Fired. This is an extremely rare triple watercap fused 15” Rodman ball that was fired from either the U.S.S. Montauk or the U.S.S. Lehigh at Battery Pringle on the Stono River near Charleston, South Carolina

USS Montauk, a 1335-ton Passaic class monitor built at Greenpoint, New York, was commissioned in December 1862 under the command of Commander John L. Worden (Captain of the famous Monitor). She arrived at Port Royal, South Carolina, in mid-January 1863 to join the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron. Late in the month she bombarded Fort McAllister, Georgia, in a test of her combat abilities. At the end of February, Montauk returned to Ft. McAllister to shell and destroy the Confederate privateer Rattlesnake and early in the next month covered another bombardment of the fort by three of her sister monitors. She was hit several times by enemy cannon fire in these actions and also received damage when a mine (or “torpedo” in the terminology of the day) detonated near her hull just after she had attacked the Rattlesnake.

On 7 April 1863, Montauk was one of nine ironclads, including seven monitors that made a close-range bombardment of Fort Sumter, in Charleston harbor, S.C. During the summer of that year, she participated in a series of attacks on the Charleston harbor fortifications that led to the capture of Battery Wagner in September. Montauk continued to serve in the vicinity of Charleston until February 1865, when she moved north to take part in operations on the Cape Fear River, North Carolina. While stationed off Washington, D.C., in late April 1865, Montauk served as the platform for an examination of the body of John Wilkes Booth, the murderer of President Abraham Lincoln. She also was a temporary prison for some of Booth’s co-conspirators.

During the Charleston campaign the US gunners on the warships learned how to skip these massive cannonballs on the water so that the shells would skip over the fort walls and land inside the fort. This would be the most effective form of destruction within the fort. All three water cap fuses unscrew. CONDITION: Generally good. Some minor surface indentions from rolling on a hard surface. 4-55788 JM192 (3,000-5,000)

CS 8” INCENDIARY SHELL. Finest non-excavated specimen known to exist. Possibly picked up from the staging area for the US troops on Folly Island, South Carolina, before they crossed Morris Island on the advance to Battery Wagner (which was the setting for the movie, “Glory”). Only one other specimen known to exist and it was excavated. This shell contains the largest fuse plug known from the war: 2.3” head diameter. The fuse in the center is an 1859-dated US Navy watercap fuse, many of which were captured by the Confederates in 1861. Marked on the side, “INERT”. Brass water cap fuse is removable. According to Jack Bell, author of Civil War Heavy Explosive Ordnance, the bursting charge was sealed in the tin can, with a liquid incendiary mixture filling the shell cavity. This provenance indicates CS origin. CONDITION: Excellent. 4-55797 JM10 (1,750-2,750)

EXTRAORDINARILY RARE AND IMPORTANT CONFEDERATE RAINS BARREL TORPEDO. One of two known examples in existence and the only one in private hands. This is a Rains barrel torpedo that was recovered during the Civil War in Mobile Bay, AL. and was developed by Gabriel James Rains, Chief of the Confederate Torpedo Service. Gabriel James Rains was born in Craven County, NC in 1803. Rains entered West Point and graduated 13th in the class of 1827. He was a Lt. in the 5th U.S. Inf. serving in FL. and LA. He fought in the Second Seminole War and recruited troops for the Mexican War. In early 1861 Rains had risen to the rank of Lt. Col. and after NC seceded he resigned his commission and entered the Confederate army as a Col. by September of 1861 Gabriel Rains was promoted to Brig. Gen.

The authentic mushroom anchor was recovered from Charleston, SC. Accompanying are two reproduction Rains sensitive primer fuses that are exact copies made by Michael Kochan co-author of the book TORPEDOES Another Look at the Infernal Machines of the Civil War and this torpedo is pictured on page 42, bottom right, of this book. There are two iron fuse plates that held the Rains torpedo fuses. The Confederates made the torpedo from locally available materials with the main body consisting of a wooden barrel or keg. At each end is a solid pc of a pine log that was hand shaped into a cone and affixed to the ends of the bbl. At the end of each cone are loops that were used to secure the torpedo to the mushroom anchor. It was found that the bbl alone would roll in the current or tide and possibly dislodge from the anchor. Later the cones were added to streamline the bbl torpedo. Both the inside and outer surface of the bbl was coated with tar to make it watertight. After the bbl was watertight, it was filled with black powder with a small air pocket left for buoyancy.

The first warship sank by a torpedo (we call them mines today) was the U.S.S. Cairo at 11:55 AM on December 12, 1862 in the Yazoo River, Mississippi. George Yost, a fifteen year old crew member of the U.S.S. Cairo, wrote “…just as we were training on the battery we were struck by a torpedo, which exploded under our starboard bow, a few feet from the center and some 35 or 40 feet from the bow proper just under our provision store room, which crushed in the bottom of the boat so that the water rushed in like the roar of Niagara. In five minutes, the hold was full of water and the forward part of the gunboat was flooded…One of our heaviest bow guns had been dismounted by the force of the explosion injuring three men…” “…Executive Officer Hiram K. Hazlett and the writer were the last two persons to leave the sinking vessel which we did by jumping into the “dingey” which was manned by two sailors, and awaited us at the stern…We moved off just in time to escape being swallowed up in the seething caldron of foaming water… Nothing of the CAIRO could be seen 12 minutes after the first explosion, expecting the smoke stacks, and the flag staff from which still floated the flag above the troubled waters…”.

In 1877 General Rains wrote in the Southern Historical Society Papers, Vol. III. Richmond, VA., Nos. 5 and 6, that “…Ironclads are said to master the world, but torpedoes master the ironclads, and must so continue on account of the almost total incompressibility of water and the developed gasses of the fired gunpowder of the torpedo under the vessel’s bottom passing through it, as the direction of least resistance….” “…During the war with the Confederacy, there were 123 torpedoes planted in Charleston harbor and Stono River, which prevented the capture of that city and its conflagration. There were 101 torpedoes planted in Roanoke River, NC, by which, of twelve vessels sent with troops and means to capture Fort Branch, but five returned. One was sunk by the fire from the fort, and the rest by torpedoes. Of the five ironclads sent with other vessels to take Mobile, AL (one was tin clad), three were destroyed by torpedoes. There were fifty-eight vessels sunk by torpedoes in the war, and some of them of no small celebrity, as Admiral Farragut’s flagship the Harvest Moon, the Thorn, the Commodore Jones, the Monitor Patapsco, Ram Osage, Monitor Milwaukee, Housatonic and others. (Cairo in Yazoo River). Peace societies we must acknowledge a failure in settling national differences by arbitration, since enlightened nations go to war for a mere political abstraction, and vast armies in Europe are kept ready for action, to be frustrated, however, by this torpedo system of mining, carried out according to views…”.

The destruction of Union ships during the Mobile Bay campaign was severe. On August 5, 1864 the U.S.S. Tecumseh led the 18-ship Union squadron into the Mobile Bay, which included the monitors U.S.S. Chickasaw, U.S.S. Manhattan, and U.S.S. Winnebago. Just after 7 A.M., Tecumseh opened fire on Fort Morgan. When the U.S.S. Tecumseh veered left to engage the Confederate ram C.S.S. Tennessee, the Union monitor hit a torpedo. A tremendous explosion occurred sinking the U.S.S. Tecumseh rapidly with its captain and 92 crewmen. Rear Admiral David Farragut is famous for shouting the order “Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!” after the sinking of the U.S.S. Tecumseh. After the naval attack of August 5, 1864, at total of nine U.S. warships and a launch were sunk as a result of these infernal machines with around 200 seamen killed or wounded. These devices may seem to be crude but they played a prominent role in the Civil War damaging or destroying more U.S. Navy ships than all of the other Confederate weapons or ships combined.

BRITISH 6.4” WHITWORTH SHELL. Excavated. Unfired. Sir Joseph Whitworth was probably the best mechanical engineer Britain had during his lifetime. Most of Whitworth’s achievements represented international firsts. He had forty-eight patents from 1834-1878, for machinery, artillery projectiles, cannons, tools, armor, and other improvements. One of his better known inventions was the Whitworth cannon and rifle with their corresponding projectiles. Whitworth cannon were used at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Vicksburg, Mississippi, Fredericksburg, Virginia, Fort Fisher, North Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, as well as other American Civil War battlefields. Purportedly from the Confederate blockade-runner Ella, that ran aground off Fort Fisher, North Carolina. This shell came with shipping plugs fixed into the fuse bushing. It may have been dumped overboard by the Ella as she tried to elude Union Blockade ships. Such a gun with British-made projectiles would have posed a significant threat to the Union fleet. Shipping plug is removable. CONDITION: Salt water shell. Exterior has a light restoration finish with some slight cracking to finish. 4-55977 JM9 (2,000-3,000)

WONDERFUL AND RARE FAMILY COLLECTION OF CONFEDERATE MEMORABILIA, CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG, WEAPONS, PERSONAL AND VETERAN OBJECTS ALL WITH WONDERFUL UNBROKEN PROVENANCE TO AUGUSTUS PITT ADAMSON CORPORAL COMPANY E 30TH GEORGIA VOLUNTEER INFANTRY. An incredible collection of firearms, photographs, flags, letters, documents, and personal accouterments, veteran’s memorabilia, uniform items, all with the proverbial family trunk. Strong provenance exists through years of careful family retention to Corporal Adamson. Corporal Augustus Pitt Adamson was the author of the work Brief History of the Thirtieth Georgia Regiment published in 1912 by the Mills Printing Company of Griffin, GA. An inventory and evaluation of the collection is as follows: A spectacular photograph of Adamson in uniform accompanies this group. Photograph is a post-war cabinet card – most likely copied from an ambrotype – measuring 5” x 7” and stamped “Wilson’s Studio/41 Bull Street, Savannah, Georgia”. The photograph shows Corp. Adamson in a 3/4 seated pose wearing a battle shirt with dark collar, epaulettes and cuff decoration and holding a large D-guard Bowie knife. This photograph clearly shows the youthful face of a young Confederate warrior, eager to serve the cause. The transcript of Corp. Adamson’s diary details that he was captured toward the rear of Gen. Johnston’s army on the morning of May 17, 1864 by the 5th KY Cav. Taken to the prison camp at Rock Island, Ill. and remained there until his exchange in March, 1865 in Richmond, VA. The Confederate Battle flag of Co. E 30th VA Vol. Inf. as well as the 2 inf. guidons and the United States flag taken from the Warren House in Jonesboro, GA, all a part of this amazing collection, were extensively examined by H. Michael Madaus, America’s foremost authority on American and Confederate flags and his description of these marvelous flag follows: CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG, ATTRIBUTED TO THE 30TH GEORGIA INFANTRY. Adamson Collection. According to the letter of provenance from Mr. Adamson, the flag as well as the other relics were inherited directly from his aunt Faye Adamson E.E. C.I.K., his father’s sister. Also in the trunk of relics was an old copy of a letter dated “December 2, 1865, Rex, Georgia. This flag belonged to The 30th Georgia Volunteer Infantry Company “E”. It was made by the ladies of Clayton county and presented to the regiment by Miss Ella Callaway and accepted by Private J.H. Huie, April 18, 1862. this flag represented the 30th Georgia in the following battles: Jackson, Chickamauga, …A.P. Adamson, 1866.” With letter of authenticity from Les Jensen. This flag was found (falling apart according to the family descendants) in the trunk of “relics” belonging to Corporal Augustus Pitt Adamson, Company E, 30th Georgia Infantry. Close examination of the reconstructed flag shows fragments of the original stitching which was believed to be silk and thus explains the deterioration of the stitching only. The Adamson descendants had the flag “reassembled” by a conservator in the late 20th century using deliberately large stitches and synthetic thread to distinguish any modern re-stitching from stitching that remained contemporaneous to the Civil War. This flag was produced by a “home” sewing group (as opposed to being spec-made at a government clothing depot), very possibly by first disassembling an older, large U.S. flag for its components. The flag itself conforms to the general design of the Army of Northern Virginia battle flag, but measures 54-1/2” on its staff by 57” on its fly overall. The red, wool, bunting field is pieced in each quadrant.. The outside sections measure between 4-1/2” and 6” in width and the inner triangles having a height between 8-1/4” and 9-1/2”. A dark blue, wool, bunting St. Andrew’s cross is inset into the field, 8” to 8-1/2” wide, and pieced from rectangles of bunting 8-1/2” to 9” long (with each end piece about 16” so as to extend fully to the corners). The cross is bordered on each side with a strip of white, wool bunting, 2” to 2-1/8” wide. Each of the thirteen sections of the cross bears a white, cotton, 5-pointed star averaging 8” across their points on the obverse and 7” across their points on the reverse. These stars are sewn to the obverse side with a running stitch with white (yellowed with age) thread. The dark blue bunting behind each star was then cut away and under-hemmed and secured with a whipstitch of a different (black aged brown) thread (a technique for lightening the flags not uncommon during the Civil War and earlier). A 4” wide, white, wool, bunting border (formed by doubling over an 8-1/2” wide piece of bunting) was then added to all four sides. An additional pc of linen canvas, 2-1/2” wide, was then folded and dbld over the leading edge of the flag to serve as a 1-1/4” diameter sleeve for a cord that protrudes into loops at two cuts along the staff edge and at each end of the flag’s heading, which secured the flag to its staff. CONDITION: Flag is in overall good condition, although, as noted, all but the stars have been extensively re-stitched with a heavy synthetic dyed thread to replace what was the orig, (probably silk) and now missing, construction thread. Aside from these distractions, one of the quadrants shows minor separation of the bunting fabric and two of the stars are holed – one with a small hole – the other with a major deterioration due to a contact with some acidic liquid, possibly blood. (Note, the 30th Georgia Infantry reportedly lost a flag at Nashville, Tennessee on 16 December 1864,which was torn into pieces by the capturing unit ( the 5th Minnesota Infantry). However, that flag is not the same flag as described here). HMM PAIR OF CONFEDERATE VARIANT 1ST NATIONAL (“STARS & BARS”) FLANK MARKER FLAGS OF THE 30TH GEORGIA INFANTRY. Ex-Adamson collection. Mating pair of small (12”-12-1/2” on the staff by 17-1/2” to 18-3/4” on the fly – to points) wool, bunting, swallowtail, flank markers. (The “general guide sergeants” at each end of a line of battle to mark the locations of the flanks of the regiment carried these small flags). Design of each is a variant of the Confederate 1st National flag (a.k.a. “Stars & Bars”), which consisted of three horizontal bars: red-white-red, and a blue canton with stars equal to the number of states in the Confederacy. In this case, the stars have been replaced by a single, white, cotton, 5-pointed star, 6-1/2” to 7” across its points & sewn to the reverse side of the dark blue wool bunting canton, which has been cut away on the obverse side to expose the white from the opposite side, in the same manner as the regimental battle flag. This suggests that all three flags (battle flag and pair of markers) were made at the same time and by the same sewing group. Five marker flags have been retained and preserved over the years by the Adamson family. The three remaining flags remain with the Adamson family. CONDITION: Individually framed and in excellent condition with little shows of wear or use. However, the markers have been re-sewn by the same conservator that reattached the pieces of the unit’s battle flag with the resultant, wide, synthetically dyed stitching in evidence. HMM CIVIL WAR U.S. ARMY CONTRACT RECRUITING FLAG, FLOWN OVER REX, GEORGIA (TORN DOWN BY PVT. A. P. ADAMSON IN 1865). U.S., Q.M. Dept., contract recruiting flag that served as headquarters and hospital flag for the 52nd Illinois Infantry during their occupation of Rex, Georgia in 1865. Typical regulation (4’4” by 9’10”) 34 star (1861-1863+) “recruiting flag”, which was flying over the Warren House in Rex, Georgia when Private A.P. Adamson of Company E, 30th Georgia Infantry returned to his home at the close of the Civil War. According to a note attached to this flag, written in March of 1866 and signed by Adamson, “I removed this Union Flag from the Warren House that was used as the headquarters and hospital for the 52nd Illinois Regiment.” Flag has been torn off its canvas heading and, accordingly, now measures 47-1/2” on its hoist by 110-1/2” on its fly. The flag’s field is made from thirteen, alternating, red and white, wool, bunting stripes, all joined by sewing machine stitching. A dark blue, wool, bunting 2-pc canton, 25-1/2” wide and 40-1/4” long, is inset into the upper, hoist corner. It bears thirty four (34) white cotton, 5-pointed stars, set in five horizontal rows: 7-7-6-7-7, each 3-1/4” across its points and appliquéd to each side of the canton by hand stitch. The heading that once secured to its halyards or staff is now missing as a result of Adamson’s actions. CONDITION: In addition to the torn leading edge, the field of stripes shows considerable loss of material, both to typical wear in the field and to post-War insect damage. Canton shows almost no damage other than its separation from its heading and minor mothing, while all stars are intact and in good condition. HMM Many of the smaller items have, for years, been stored in an American made pine wood dome-topped trunk measuring 31” wide x 19” tall x 16” deep. CONDITION: Soft wood trunk, perhaps once covered in leather, shows extensive worm damage to exterior surfaces. Outside has been refinished a number of times and some reinforcement added to the interior. On either side of the trunk are 2 iron bale handles. Bottom portion of the locking mechanism is present, top is missing. Within the trunk, for many years, was stored letters, papers, personal items, and Adamson’s Colt Model 1851 Navy revolver, SN 114229 (all matched). His Colt revolver is a standard Colt Navy .36 Cal. with 7-1/2 oct bbl, iron frame, brass trigger guard and back strap. CONDITION: Very good. Pistol has dark uncleaned patina overall. Cylinder has numerous nicks and scrapes. Right grip is cracked and repaired. Mechanics are very good. Also with group is Corp. Adamson’s musket, being a US Model 1863 Contract rifled musket, manufactured by Bridesburg and dated 1864. The .58 Cal. musket has a 41” rnd bbl on a walnut stock with iron furniture. The lock plate is marked “U.S./Bridesburg” surmounted by an American eagle and dated 1864. Bbl is dated 1864 with appropriate proof marks and an American eagle stamped on the face of the bolster. The iron buttplate is stamped “U.S.”. The musket is accompanied by a brass tipped cork tompion. Attached to the musket is a late 19th C. military leather sling, not orig to the gun. CONDITION: Very good. All metal has a light gray patina. Stock shows moderate to hard use. With the musket is its orig triangular socket bayonet and scabbard. Bayonet has an 18-1/2” blade marked “U.S.” with the inspectors mark “J” near the socket. CONDITION: Very good. Gray uncleaned patina with light surface rust. Scabbard is of leather in US regulation style with 8 copper rivets on the belt frog. Belt loop is stamped “E.A. Crossman & Co./Newark/NJ” within an oval cartouche. CONDITION: Scabbard is excellent. Belt loop is flexed. Group also includes a Civil War period side knife having a 7-1/2”, single-edged, thin blade measuring 1-1/2” at its widest point inset in a walnut hand-carved grip with a brass collar. CONDITION: Very good. Blade has a light gray patina which has been cleaned some time ago. Grip is cracked and the knife is accompanied by a late 19th or early 20th C. heavy leather scabbard, not orig to the knife. Adamson’s percussion cap box is manufactured of black russet leather being of somewhat crude manufacture following the Union regulation style. It is marked only with 2 tool rosettes on the front flap, one on the secondary flap, one on the front of the cap box body and two on the reverse. The Box has dbl sewn belt loops and a brass finial with a somewhat unusual collar at the base. This cap box could be of Confederate manufacture. CONDITION: Very good. Leather is stiff, unclean. Wool and pick are missing from the interior. Corp. Adamson’s Holy Bible and Psalter are included, published in London in 1858 with a tooled leather bound cover and brass clasp. CONDITION: Very good. Small group of Civil War period personal objects attributed to Adamson include: a 3-1/2” tall tin drinking cup, a small oil lamp measuring 3” in diameter with a single wick, a cased straight razor marked “Francis Albert & Co./Baltimore,” a boxed set of Civil War period ivory and ebony wood dominos, a tinned case set of spectacles, an oval mirror in a soft wood case with a swivel lid, a tin of Goldmark’s percussion caps, a Japanned percussion cap tin marked “Eley, London”, 6 American coins including a half dollar dated 1864, a quarter dollar dated 1861, a dime dated 1859, a half dime dated 1861, a 3 cent piece dated 1860, and a 1 cent coin dated 1848, and a wooden cased compass of probable English manufacture. CONDITION: All of the smaller items are in good to very good condition showing moderate to heavy use. An extensive archive of photographs, letters and documents accompany this group which chronicles the Adamson family and Corp. Augustus Pitt Adamson’s service in the American Civil War. Items include 1 orig printing of his history of the 30th GA Regiment. CONDITION: Very good, no wraps. A later printing c. 1925. CONDITION: Fair, front paper wrap present with losses, and of the work. A 1993 reprint. CONDITION: Very good. In addition, there is a copy of the book Sojourns of a Patriot; The Field and Prison Papers of an Unreconstructed Confederate by Abell and Gecik (Murfreesboro, TN, 1998) written around the prison diary and approx. 80 letters of Augustus Pitt Adamson (a number of these letters are included in the archive offered here). A genealogy of the Adamson family dated 1918, numerous identified photographs of Adamson and various family members, a series of war time letters to and from Corporal Adamson, including several written to him while a prisoner at Rock Island, numerous post war letters among family members, hand written recollections of the Civil War, census papers, newspaper articles, poetry, photographs of Adamson’s gravesite, and an original copy of the book, Georgia in the War; 1861-1865 by Chas. Edgeworth Jones of Augusta, Georgia dated 1909. CONDITION: Letters, papers, and remaining pcs of the archive are strong. Some letters are faded but readable. Other papers and letters have tattered edges and breaks at folds. A number of Confederate veteran related items are also included. A 1910 photograph of the reunion of 30th GA veterans at Forest Park, GA, and another taken on July 29, 1894 of veterans from his unit, a certificate from the Atlanta Battlefields Reunion to the Survivor’s Association of the 30th GA, and a couple of “Confederate Veteran” ribbons and a paper ticket to the Atlanta Cyclorama of the Battle of Gettysburg. What follows is an interesting grouping of items that date to the period 1890-1920 that were fabricated during Corp. Adamson’s lifetime in order to replicate his appearance in the c. 1861 photograph showing him as a young soldier ready for battle. Adamson recreated his gray battle shirt style jacket, which is made of lightweight gray flannel with a tabby weave with a 10-button front having a fallen collar trimmed in black wool, 2 shoulder straps and 2 black wool vertical strips running from shoulder seam to the bottom of the jacket. Each cuff has a Brandenburg batwing style appliqué with 3 buttons. The jacket has an exterior pocket below the right breast and is lined in a blue and cream-colored check wool material. Buttonholes are hand sewn. The entire jacket, except for shoulder straps, is adorned with 10 Civil War period general service eagle buttons down the front and 3 on each cuff. The epaulettes are secured with 2 brass coin buttons. The replicated battle shirt is clearly not exactly the same as the one Adamson is wearing in the historic photograph. It is, however, a plausible copy made during his lifetime. Along with the jacket is a low crowned kepi fashioned of the same material as the jacket, approx. 2-1/2” in front, 6” high in rear with a crown that is 4-1/2” in diameter. There is a black band on the base of the exterior, a tarred leather visor and chin strap secured by 2 Indian War period general service eagle buttons. The interior of the kepi has a 1-1/2” wide leather sweatband. The kepi is lined in black cotton. An extensive letter from noted Confederate uniform authority Les Jensen accompanies the jacket and kepi, which pronounces this as a rare post war period reproduction of a veteran’s orig uniform. Jensen states, “It is, so far as I am aware, the only known instance in which a Confederate veteran reproduced his first uniform for wear at reunions and other veterans occasions. As such, it is a unique and important survival”. CONDITION: Jacket and kepi are in reasonably good condition, showing light use. No mothing is present, however some edges are worn and stitching loose. Also in this group is a handmade Confederate style D-guard knife with a 16” dbl-edged spear pointed elliptical blade. There is an oval brass counterguard, cast brass D-guard style knuckle bow with a flat black walnut grip. It is similar but not identical to the one in the photo (which obviously he lost when captured). The knife replicates the one Adamson holds in the historic photograph. CONDITION: Very good. Blade shows small areas of deep pitting. Finally, accompanying this group of post war materials is a copper and brass, cavalry sized bugle with a copper body, applied brass rim at the bell, and an excavated Civil War period mouthpiece. CONDITION: Excellent. No dents or dings. Mouthpiece is not orig. to the bugle but an excavated example. This incredible grouping of Confederate objects all related to the consignor’s family have been gathered carefully over a period of some 100 years by relatives, making this one of the most important groupings of personal and regimental objects related to a hard fought Confederate unit ever to be offered at public auction. 4-56160, 4-56106-1, 4-56160-2, 4-56160-3 CW1 (100,000-250,000)

A graduate of West Point in the Class of 1827, he resigned his commission several months after receiving it to enter the ministry in the Episcopal Church. Being an excellent preacher and clergyman, he was elected Bishop of Louisiana in 1841 and was ordained by his close friend and colleague the Right Reverend Stephen Elliott, who was the first bishop of Georgia. Elliott (born 1806, died 1916), a graduate of Harvard Law School and the bishop of Georgia, is named as the presenter of this magnificent Confederate sword. Polk, a friend of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, was persuaded to join the Confederate army in July of 1861. Commissioned as a Major General, he was assigned to oversee the fortification of the Mississippi River. He later commanded a Corps under General Albert Sidney Johnston. He fought bravely at Shiloh and Corinth and was promoted to command the Army of the Mississippi when Jefferson Davis reorganized his command in the west. Serving under Lieutenant General Braxton Bragg, Polk led his army at Perryville, Murfreesboro and Chickamauga. Polk proved to be a rather unsuccessful strategist at Chickamauga and General Bragg instituted a Court marshal against him. Politically strong, with friendships in Richmond, Polk successfully avoided prosecution and his Army of the Mississippi moved to North Georgia to help protect Atlanta. On June 14, 1864, during a conference with Confederate Generals Joseph Johnston and William Hardee, he was killed outright by an artillery projectile. 4-55779, 4-56159 CW31 (75,000-175,000)

Several are readable from apothecaries in Cincinnati, OH and Savannah, GA. The consignor’s letter of provenance tells of his father finding this medical apothecary in an antique store in Florida in 1986. Some of the medicine bottles are marked as follows: “Quinine,” “Ipecac,” “Syrup Squills,” “Camoel,” “Leptandrin,” among others. Also contained with this lot is a sixth-plate tintype of a young man with hands folded in his lap, presumably Dr. Drewry. Inside lid is written in black ink “N.B.

Browne served in 3 distinguished VA. Cav. units between 1861 and 1865. The saddle was manufactured by C. Prudden of Philadelphia and is so marked with a small brass tag on the left front of the tree. This is a standard 1863 pattern McClellan saddle with rawhide seat. The pommel has a shield marked “11 inch seat” and the appropriate hardware is mounted throughout. Accompanying the saddle is a pair of regulation McClellan saddlebags, blanket straps and stirrups. A letter from R.

LOT OF PURPORTED CAPTURED NAVAL ARTIFACTS FROM THE CONFEDERATE BLOCKADE RUNNER A.D. VANCE ALONG WITH US NAVY UNIFORM, CAP, CUTLASS, AND BELT. This lot includes artifacts related to the capture of a blockade-runner by an important US naval officer, O.S. Glisson. The consignor’s provenance relates this group to Capt. Oliver S. Glisson, who had a long and distinguished career in the United States Navy. He became a midshipman on November 1, 1826, a passed midshipman on April 28, 1832. In 1837, he reached the rank of Lieutenant and by September, 1855; commander. The outbreak of the Civil War, he was promoted to Captain in July of 1862, during which time he commanded the ship Santiago de Cuba. At war’s end, he was prompted to commodore and by June 10, 1870 was made Rear Admiral, retiring in 1871. Glisson died on November 20, 1890. During the Civil War, he commanded the 1,568-ton side-wheel steam ship, Santiago de Cuba. The ship was built in 1856 as a commercial steamer but was converted to a cruiser in November 1861. She served in the Gulf of Mexico, enforcing the blockade of the Confederate states and to protect American shipping. During her service, she captured the schooner Victoria. In 1862 and 1863, the ship operated in the western Atlantic, capturing more than 6 Confederate blockade-runners and cruisers. On September 10, 1864 under the command of Captain Glisson, the Santiago de Cuba captured the Confederate Steamer A.D. Vance. The ship was decommissioned after the war and returned to commercial service until about 1899. The A.D. Vance, attempting to run the union blockade in September 1864 and captured by Captain Glisson, was purchased by the United States Navy from a prize court. In October 1864, she was recommissioned as the USS Advance and took part in the assaults on Fort Fisher in December 1864 and January 1865. A number of items in this lot retain brass plaques (made and inscribed within the last 20 years), which are inscribed as follows: “captured from/the rebel blockade runner/A.D.Vance/by Captain O.S. Glisson/USS Santiago de Cuba September 10, 1864.” These items include a brass ship’s bell, unmarked, measuring 12” in diameter and 9” tall, made of heavy cast bell metal. CONDITION: Very good. Outside shows numerous dents and dings where the bell has been struck. Clapper is a replacement. Ship’s compass in a wooden case, measuring 11-1/4” x 11-1/4” being a large brass floating compass with a printed paper face signed “Robert Merrill/New York.” CONDITION: Very good. Wooden box shows heavy wear. Cased telescope, unmarked of probably English manufacturer. 4-section brass telescope with sewn leather cover and original dust cover mounted within a hinged box measuring 11-1/4” x 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” with a maroon padded velvet lining with brass bale handle mounting on top. CONDITION: Telescope is very good with some shrinkage to leather cover. Box shows heavy wear, the interior is stained and worn. Cased brass ship’s octant with ebony frame and ivory insets in a walnut case built to its shape measuring approx. 13” x 13” x 14-1/2”. CONDITION: Walnut case shows light to medium wear with several minor losses. Octant is quite nice with traces of old brass polish. Finally, there is, what appears to be, a cased chronometer marked “T.S. Negus & Co. New York” that while having a plaque indicating its capture from the blockade runner A.D. Vance, does not appear to be old enough. CONDITION: Excellent. Other items in the lot include a steel and German silver compass and an iron compass, both unmarked, a bound copy of the Report of the Superintendent of the Coast Survey for the year ending November 1850. Also included is a US Model 1860 Naval Cutlass, scabbard, waist belt, and fuse box. The cutlass has a 26” single-edged blade with an unstopped fuller and is dated 1862 and surmounted by the stamp “USN” and the inspector’s marks “DR.” The hilt is of sheet brass formed into a cup and mounted on a D-guard. The counterguard is stamped “12M/312.” The grip is of wood wrapped in leather. Scabbard is of leather with copper rivets. CONDITION: Sword is very good with an uncleaned patina. The last 1-1/2” of the scabbard is separated but retained with the group. Scabbard is mounted in a black buff leather frog hanging on a 2” wide buff leather belt dyed black. Fuse box measuring approx. 4-1/2” x 4-1/2” is marked “U.S.N.Y./Boston” within a somewhat rectangular cartouche. CONDITION: Frog, belt, and fuse box are all quite good. Also with the group, but apparently unrelated is a Naval officer’s frock coat, dating to the post war period 1870-1890, being a double-breasted regulation style Navy dress frock coat with a 12-button front of dark blue wool. The coat is lined with black cotton twill reinforced at the armpits with two interior pockets lined in unbleached linen. Inside the right breast pocket is the label from its maker “Made by/Hackett, Carhart & Co./4001 Broadway, N.Y.” This label is signed in period ink “H.E. Peck/4376.” The sleeves of the coat are lined in white cotton with a thin blue stripe. The buttons on the coat are 2-pc fouled anchor buttons of brass of a commercial variety back marked “S. Appel & Co./New York.” CONDITION: Very good. Minor mothing here and there, several tears have been repaired. Interior lining is good, pocket linings are fragile.

RECOVERED RELIC ENGLISH P1858 RIFLED MUSKET FROM THE BLOCKADE RUNNER “MODERN GREECE”. The relic of an English pattern 1858 Enfield rifled musket having a 39-1/2” rnd bbl mounted on a walnut stock with brass furniture. This rifle was recovered off the North Carolina coast from the wreckage of the Confederate Blockade Runner “Modern Greece.” It is accompanied by an oct iron bolt and an Enfield .577 cal. bullet, also recovered from the wreckage. This freight ship was built in Stockton, England and was purchased by Zechariah Pearson. Pearson registered a company and became actively engaged in the West Indies trade with the Confederate States of America through a Bermuda based agent named John T. Bourne. The ship had a depth of 17’, was 210’ long, 29’ wide, and, with her dimensions, was only marginally suitable for blockade running. On May 16, 1862, the US Consul at Falmouth reported “The departure of the ‘Modern Greece’ from that port on the 2nd ultimo with a cargo, it is suspected, for the rebels”. The ship approached the North Carolina coast just below Fort Fisher and was spotted by two US ships, the “USS Stars and Stripes” and the “USS Cambridge”, which immediately opened fire upon her. The “Modern Greece” immediately hoisted the British flag and made full steam to attempt to reach the cover of Fort Fisher’s guns by running parallel to the shore. About a half mile south of Fort Fisher, the ship ran hard aground. Orders were given to abandon ship and both of the US vessels fired upon the stricken “Modern Greece” for several hours. The shelling affectively chopped off the top of the ship so that by two months later, her spar deck was level with the waterline. The Confederates mounted a salvage expedition and begin to recover munitions and supplies from the wreck. A public auction was had of salvaged civilian cargo shortly thereafter in Wilmington, North Carolina. A century later, in the early spring on 1962, a fierce storm with high winds and raging water uncovered much of the wreck from its sandy grave. Several Federal departments did surveys and limited salvage operations, however, private salvage operations recovered some of the cargo as well. Sometime around the mid-1980’s, a number of artifacts from the “Modern Greece” appeared on the public market. Included is a letter of provenance from Mr. Adamson in which he states he purchased this lot from Mr. Troy Church of Winston Salem, North Carolina who obtained it from a friend during the 1950’s. CONDITION: Walnut stock is intact and has been conserved. Rifle is missing one if its brass bbl bands. Tip of the percussion hammer has been eroded away. Orig tompion is lodged in the muzzle. 4-56094 CW53 (1,500-2,000)

CONFEDERATE STYLE ARTILLERY KEPI. This old red kepi is made of red colored linen with cardboard stiffener and cardboard rim. Insignia of crossed cannons and large letters “GA” adorn top. This insignia is a reproduction. Two, flat, coin type buttons hold chinstrap. The sweatband is made of same material as the hat. This hat is most unusual. We have never seen anything like it before. It is old and could easily date from the CW era. There is a letter accompanying from Les Jensen who concludes: “Based strictly on observation with the naked eye and a 10 power hand lens and experience in examining many Confederate kepis over roughly thirty years, this kepi is essentially undatable. It may date from the CW, or it may date 30 years later. Except for the insignia, it does appear to be orig. The insignia has been added, probably in modern times. Unfortunately, there is little to compare it with and such items were available from military dealers for many years in the 19th C. CONDITION: Overall very good. Some crazing and cracking.

Tarred sweatband is intact. Chinstrap has 2 eagle staff buttons. An orig embroidered 6th army badge with orig red background sits atop officer’s braid on top of kepi. An embroidered US staff insignia 1 1/2” across in bullion wreath sits on front of hat. Typical dark blue wool vest that would have been worn with Union Officers coat. Coat has 9 extra quality back marked US Staff Officers buttons. Coat has 3 pockets lined with light brown cotton. Same light brown material is used on backing of vest. A 2 prong iron tightening buckle is found on back of vest, dated 1855. Sash is typical red silk faded to purple. The orig straps should be resewn to coat as seen in CDV.

UNION CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY SHELL JACKET. Standard single-breasted dark blue wool shell jacket with eagle “A” cuffs on front collar and cuff. The use of eagle “A’s” is a variation, I have not seen on regulation shell jacket before. This coat is in fine condition with an unusual plaid lining. This coat is as fine an example as you can find in this pattern. Only minor damage to a few buttonholes and scattered moth tracking. Red trim is excellent and bright. Les Jensen, in his letter of authenticity, states, “This jacket has all the proper characteristics of a Civil War light artillery jacket. The one attribution that is unusual is the use of a single piece of tape for each blind buttonhole, rather than two. This has previously been attributed to one of the western clothing depots. The lack of markings, plus the plaid lining, may, in fact, indicate a Philadelphia provenance. Although the Schuylkill Arsenal in Philadelphia generally marked their items with size dots in the sleeves, this may not always been done, and Schuylkill is know to have used non-standard linings. Conclusion: This is an orig Civil War light artillery jacket, probably made at or under contract to the Schuylkill Arsenal in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.” 4-56253 JS253 (2,500-3,500)

IDENTIFIED CONFEDERATE DBL-BREASTED FROCK COAT OF LIEUTENANT LOUIS P. HENOP OF WHITESIDES NAVAL BATTALION. Frock coat is dbl-breasted with eagle staff buttons. Tails also have eagle staff buttons. Coat is gray. Collar is fold down type. Similar coats are seen in photographs of Confederate officers, often times high ranking Confederate generals, though this coat is not regulation. It has no rank insignia and regulation navy coats call for 2 rows of 9 buttons, where this coat has 2 rows of 7 buttons. Sleeve elbows are 9-1/2”. Cuffs are 5-1/2”. The coat is lined with a brown decorated cotton. The sleeves are lined with white cotton. Les Jensen concludes in his letter of authenticity: “Therefore, I have no doubt that this is an orig example of a Confederate officer’s coat. The color, the material, the cut and the buttons are all consistent with Confederate products. I do not believe, however, that it particularly follows Navy regulations. Instead, it appears to be a lapel collar, Army officer’s coat of the type often seen in portraits of high-ranking Confederate generals. It is also possible, however, that a roll collar frock coat pattern was used to stand in for a proper Confederate Navy coat. If indeed Whiteside’s battalion were part of the Navy, this is probably the explanation. In any case, the lack of insignia is consistent with a late war, junior officer’s coat, and the style of button spacing is one of a type often seen on coats produced in the deep south. It is certainly one of the finest orig coats, in terms of condition, that I have ever had the opportunity to examine”. CONDITION: Coat overall is excellent. Minor moth damage. Coat shows very little wear. Some separation at old seams from thread being brittle. 4-56261 JS242 (25,000-35,000)

Has a single second Lieutenant’s bar on each side. Standard Confederate quatrafoiling is found on each sleeve, made of same gold bullion tape as collar insignia. Each sleeve originally had 3 buttons; one is missing from each sleeve. Coat is lined in typical dark green material. Sleeves are lined in off white cotton. Sleeves are 9-1/4” at the elbow, 5-1/2” at the cuff. Accompanying letter of authenticity from Les Jensen states, “This frock coat is made of a particular kind of cadet gray wool broadcloth believed, from other coats, to be a type made by Crenshaw and Company in Richmond, Virginia. This, plus the straight forward, parallel row button spacing, points to a probable Virginia theater origin. Both characteristics are repeated on other Virginia theater coats. The use of a slit at each end of the collar insignia has also been observed on Virginia theater coats. Conclusion: This frock coat is an orig and very good example of a Confederate officer’s frock coat. Although it has no specific history, enough characteristics exist to point to a Virginia theater origin.” CONDITION: Scattered mothing. One large 1” x 1” hole on face above top right button. 3” wide light stained band across left sleeve. 4-56262 JS247 (25,000-35,000)

HISTORIC AND IMPORTANT CONFEDERATE ENLISTED MAN’S UNIFORM FROCK COAT, THE ONLY KNOWN EXAMPLE IDENTIFIED TO ONE OF WILLIAM QUANTRELL’S RAIDERS. This is probably the only surviving identified coat from one of Quantrell’s men. James S. Milliken was a private under Quantrell and according to newspaper articles, one of the youngest of Quantrell’s men. Private Milliken was born January 18, 1849 in Floyd, West Carroll Parish, Louisiana, and enlisted with Quantrell’s Missouri Minutemen at the age of 14 in 1863. He died at Lake Providence, Louisiana at age 79. Milliken’s father, Richard M. Milliken, was one of the largest slave owners of the period. Milliken, Louisiana is named for him. In a 1926 Memphis newspaper article, Milliken relays much of his war history. Milliken states that such notables as Cole Younger, Frank and Jesse James were “part of my unit”. Good details on the Lawrence, Kansas raid, and the Centralia battle. Milliken states in the included newspaper article “We never took prisoners. It was war to the death”. Coat is a dbl-breasted gray wool frock coat. There are 14 Confederate script “I” buttons on face of coat. Eagle staff buttons are found on cuffs and tails. Sleeves are lined with coarse cotton material as is other parts of the interior of the coat. The skirt of the coat is lined in a dark green/brown material typically seen in many Union and Confederate coats. There are 2 interior pockets, one in each breast. This coat is completely hand sewn. Les Jensen, in his letter of authenticity, states the coat is made of fine material and is of officer quality. The lack of insignia makes it correct for a Confederate Private. Since Milliken was from such a wealthy family, we would expect only the finest quality in his coat. This coat is orig and a very good example of a Confederate enlisted frock coat. This is very possibly the only surviving coat worn by Quantrell’s men. Extensive letter of authentication by Les Jensen, which states, “This frock coat is an original and very good example of a Confederate Enlisted frock coat…it is, to my knowledge, the only surviving coat worn by one of Quantrell’s men.” Accompanying this lot is a group of Milliken post war material, mostly fraternal, including a decorated China shaving mug signed “J.S. Milliken” in gold with a Boumi Temple emblem; a large framed photograph of Milliken, the image measuring 6” x 8-1/2”, in civilian clothes wearing fraternal metals; a 1926 newspaper article, talking about Milliken’s exploits in the war; a United Daughters of the Confederacy document of membership to one of Milliken’s daughters; numerous identification cards for various lodges; a white and red fez; a membership card to the National Republican Club of Louisiana, dated 1927 & a silk white and blue Masonic apron. CONDITION: Coat has been professionally restored. All buttons being replacements. Scattered mothing, professionally restored. Seams tightened. Lining is protected by a mesh material.

CONFEDERATE 1ST NATIONAL FLAG (“STARS & BARS”) REPORTED AS CAPTURED FROM THE BILOXI (MISSISSIPPI) COURT HOUSE IN 1861. All cotton, all machine sewn, thirteen star variant of the 1st National flag of the Confederate States of America, contemporaneously called the “Stars & Bars”. 37” hoist by 75-3/4” fly field is composed of three horizontal bars from the top- red (12-1/2” wide)-white (10-3/4” wide)- and red (12-1”2) wide. The final 9” of the lowest bar is pieced vertically. Inset into the upper, hoist corner is a faded,, dark blue canton. 24” on the hoist by 26” on the fly, bearing twelve, white, 5-pointed stars set in a 17-1/2” to 18 1/2” diameter circle around a center star, 5” across its points, all machine sewn to the canton. A blue cotton sleeve, 1-1/2” wide when flat, is sewn along the leading edge of the flag, probably for a cord to attach the flag to a staff or halyard. According to a label appended to the frame: “This flag was found in an old coffee can inside the vault of the Hancock County Courthouse that was being demolished to make way for construction of a new facility”. The label further states: “This First National Flag flew on the Biloxi, Mississippi Courthouse. It was captured by vile, Yankee, invading forces during the capture of Biloxi. The flag was later returned to the local SCV. It was repaired by a ladies group in the area. This flag served the Biloxi SCV for many years. This flag is pictured in Beauvoir during an SCV reunion with President Jefferson Davis just before his death”. CONDITION: Flag is framed flat for display. Four large oil stains appear in the red bars half way to the fly edge, possibly transferred from the coffee can in which the flag was claimed to have been found (folded) when the Hancock County Court House was demolished. Several horizontal splits and tears are evident in the lower bar from mid-way below the canton to the middle of the flag caused by dry rot. Still in very good condition for its age; canton is faded.

PRE-CIVIL WAR WOODEN CANNON BREECH SIGHT. Non-excavated. This is the only one known to exist. Due to the way it was made and the construction of it, it appears to possibly be from the American Revolutionary War or War of 1812 era. Appears to have battlefield wear but every number on the scale (from 1-4) is readable and in working condition. Possibly made of maple, this breech sight is dovetailed and has a hand-made iron thumb-stop and is made with a lot of craftsmanship. This was used to sight in smoothbore cannons for the proper elevation.

CONFEDERATE UNIFORM JACKET AND PANTS. This important lot includes a handmade uniform jacket with provenance to Private Matthew Reynolds of GA. Both the jacket and the pants have been extensively examined by noted Confederate uniform expert Les Jensen and a letter from him accompanies this lot. It was Jensen’s conclusion that although the jacket has a number of nonstandard features and postwar modifications, it is likely to have been the jacket worn by Matthew Reynolds. The jacket is a single breasted short uniform jacket made of a jeans-like woolen material woven with a twill pattern in a tan/brown or butternut color. The body is made up of 4 pieces in, generally, a sack coat pattern terminating slightly below the waist. The uniform has a 9-button front of which there are 6 remaining brass coin buttons and 1 US pattern 1889 eagle button. Buttonholes are hand sewn. The collar is of a standing type, fashioned of a single piece of dark blue material. The blue collar facing is crudely hand stitched to the inter lining. There is a hook and eye at the base of the collar on the front. The dark collar material is. most likely, a post-war alteration. Sleeves are 2-pc pattern and measure 7-7/8” at the elbow and 5” at the cuff. The left sleeve is horizontally pieced at the elbow and appears to have been made that way. The coat is lined with light brown cotton as are the sleeves. There is a mixture of hand and machine stitching throughout with the machine work somewhat poorly done. There are no interior or exterior pockets. There are 2 small belt pillows approx. 1” from the bottom of the jacket at the rear. CONDITION: Good. Jacket shows heavy wear and staining. Buttonholes are worn. Right armpit has a heavy tear and has had some crude repairs. Left breast has a L-shaped tear measuring approx. 1-1/2” x 2”. The jacket lining is tattered and torn but mostly present. 2 missing buttons accompany the jacket in a plastic bag. Accompanying the jacket is a pair of wool trousers, also woven in a twill pattern, but yet different from the jacket with a darkish brown color. Pants are fully lined unbleached cotton. Trousers have a standard fly front with 3 buttons, waistband measuring 2-1/4” in front and 1-1/8” in back. Waistband is held together with a single button. 8 suspender buttons mounted to the top of the waistband. 2 front pockets with folding flaps with the pocket bags are made of cotton canvas. There is a watch pocket to the wearer’s right. To each cuff, a reverse chevron of the same material has been made. CONDITION: Very good. Pants retain their strong color. I located 4 holes that have been professionally repaired and backed with a similar type material, very well done. Overall, they have a very nice appearance. There is mothing to indicate that these trousers are distinctly military, but they, presumably, came with the uniform jacket. They date to the Civil War period. This group is accompanied by a somewhat extensive archive of information and provenance through the family to several museums and in the hands of several dealers and collectors over the years. Private Matthew Reynolds was found in the National Archives as a member of Company K, 20th Georgia Infantry in 1864. This is further documentation that he served in a local defense unit. Apparently this jacket, which according to Les Jensen was most likely worn by Reynolds during the Civil War, has had some post war modifications such as the addition of blue material to the cuffs and collar, repairs and replaced buttons. However with the accompanying Civil War period trousers, provides the buyer an excellent opportunity to acquire an authentic Confederate enlisted man’s uniform. 4-56267 CW8 (20,000-25,000)

IDENTIFIED CONFEDERATE SOUTH CAROLINA INFANTRY MAJOR’S UNIFORM FROCK COAT. Authentic Confederate field grade officer’s frock coat identified to Maj. Robt. Jefferson Betsill of the 18th SC Vol. Regt. A detailed article on this coat and Maj. Betsill done by Andrew H. Lipps appears in the Christmas 1996, “North/South Trader”. The coat has been professionally conserved and restored by Lynn Lancaster Gorges. A full report with detailed photographs before and after also accompanies this lot. Also included are copies of various papers relating to Betsill and his service. It is dbl breasted made of gray wool with a 2/1 twill. The body is made up of 6-pcs, being the two front panels, two side back panels, and two back panels with two long skirts attached. There are 14 large 3-pc US staff officer buttons on the front, all of which are back marked ”Extra Quality” except for three back-marked “Horstmann Brothers & Co. Phil”. All of these buttons appear to be replacements. Four buttons remain at the waist and tail of the coat. All replacements, two are post war tin backs and two back marked “Extra Quality”. The front edge of both breasts have a welt of buff colored wool piping, which goes from the base of the collar to the waist on either side. Mounted on the collar are two gold bullion embroidered five-point stars on a black felt backing. These are replacements as well. The buttonholes are reinforced with gray wool so that no stitching shows. There is a dart on the right and left side of the waist running upwards into the body approx. 6”. The sleeves are of 1-pc with an inset spear-pointed widener from the cuff up to slightly above the elbow. The sleeves measure 9-1/2” at the elbow, 5-1/2” at the cuff. The collar is of the standing type made of 2-pc of the identical material as the coat. On the back of the coat, tail pockets are accessed from the outside and lined with unbleached cotton osnaburg. Piping is present on the rear tail split and on each of the pocket openings where the buttons are mounted. The interior of the coat is lined in a light brown jeans material. The breast is quilted with crude stitching in large rectangles. There is a breast pocket on the wearer’s left lined in unbleached white cotton osnaburg. Sleeve linings are the same as the pocket linings. The textile conservator has relined the tails from the waist to the hem with lightweight olive green wool, presumably to maintain its form and protect remnants of the orig lining. Remnants of the orig skirt lining are dark green polished cotton. This frock coat is sewn completely by hand, showing excellent and high quality workmanship. Letter of authentication by Jim Frasca, noted Confederate uniform authority, accompanies this lot. CONDITION: Good (restored). Coat suffered major losses, particularly on one side of the breast. Numerous holes in the sleeves, skirts, and back have been professionally conserved and backed with a similar appearing gray wool cloth. Buttons and rank insignia are modern replacements. Interior body lining is in tattered condition but about 90% present. Sleeve linings are tattered. Stitching is loose. Skirts have been relined with modern material. Piping on the front and back of coat is present but worn away in several areas. Coat is attributed to Major R.J. Betsill of the 18th South Carolina Infantry Regiment. This regiment was formed in Laurens County, and other areas of the northwestern part of South Carolina. The hard fought unit participated in the following engagements: Malvern Hill, Rappahannock Station, Second Bull Run, South Mountain, Antietam, Jackson, Charleston, Bermuda Hundred, Petersburg, The Crater, Fort Stedman, Five Forks, and Appomattox Court House. Major Betsil was wounded in action at the Battle of the Crater in Petersburg, Virginia. This authentic Confederate Major’s frock coat offers an excellent opportunity to obtain an attractive example of a field grade officer’s coat. The restoration on the coat has been sensitively done and it presents a well worn but attractive appearance. 4-56268 CW62 (40,000-60,000)
