Parsonsfield Maine, Civil War BOUNTY LOAN - COUPON

Though the patriotic fervor of the early War days filled the rolls of Lincolnís call quite handsomely, the demand for a continual supply of replacement and additional troops soon became a burden despite Northern resolve. 1st Bull Run was a disaster for the Union side, early nine month regiments were being dissolved and though many reenlisted in new and reformed regiments, the burden of war weighed heavily on the Union faithful. Small lumber, fishing and farm communities where the need for able bodied labor was most critical to the local economy, were hit especially hard in their continued effort to fill the military ranks. As the war dragged on the potential of a draft became more and more imminent. Lincolnís repetitive calls for troops forced action upon local leaders who were challenged to fill their town quotas short of a draft. As the rolls were filled by the assignment of quotas to cities and towns, the small towns were hit the hardest. They were already losing their lifeís blood of able labor. A local draft would surely drive away those not already lost to military service. Thus the bounty system was born. A welcome cash bonus for enlistment would be offered by the town, those already inclined to Ďjoin upí were it not for leaving their families financially strapped, would see the bounty as an avenue to enlistment. Additionally young unattached males viewed the bounty money as a Ďstartí in life. One problem? Where would these already poor towns go to acquire funding for bounty payment? Loans, thatís where. Bank loans alone would not satisfy the need and in some instances where towns had no money or collateral, bonds were offered for sale with a promise of interest to be paid when mature at some future date. In some cases townspeople put up their homes and farmland as collateral to enable bank loans to towns. In return bond coupons were issued for interest to be repaid over increments of time and maturity. We are offering here (individually) priced for the collector who would like one) enlistment bounty bond coupons issued and redeemed by the town of Parsonsfield ,Maine Each little coupon measures about 2 ĺ x 1 1/8 inches and carries with it a promises by the good citizens of Parsonsfield to pay the bearer of the coupon $1.50 upon maturity, April 1, 1866. (A date coinciding with the 1864 call for additional troops and the usual two year bond maturity rate.) A nice inexpensive little relic of the commitment to the Union cause of the people of Parsonsfield, Maine. With a pre Civil War population of about 2,125 soles, the town of Parsonsfield offered up 128 young men to the union cause. Itís citizens were represented in all major Maine Regiments to include the 20th Maine and saw action in the Warís major actions.. Twenty-eight of the little townís numbed were lost to disability or death.

2551

D. W. Marshall signed 1878 DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE CERTIFICATE

A circa 1878 DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE stamp issued by signature of D. W. Marshall then collector for the U. S. Internal Revenue. The revenue certificate is in fine original condition, cancelled yet remains blank save the bold brown ink signature. The piece bears a fine U. S. Department of Engraving of a military uniformed Zachary Taylor. It will take some research yet but we believe the issuing signature to be that of David W. Marshall who rose though the rank of Lt. Colonel of the 51st Ohio Volunteer Infantry. Marshall's Regiment saw action at Dobson's Ferry, Tennessee when it met and defeated Wheeler's Confederate Cavalry, left 32 of its number dead on the field at Stone's River with 105 wounded and 46 captured. In the battle of Chickamauga the hard fought 51st lost 8 men killed, 37 men and 1 officer wounded with 30 captured. It participated in the storming of Lookout Mountain, the taking of Rossville Gap through Missionary Ridge before it was engaged at Resaca and at Kennesaw Mountain. After being engaged at the battles of Franklin and Nashville, the regiment was ordered to Texas, where Lt. Col. Marshall was mustered out with the 51st on Oct. 3, 1865. A neat display item for the home bar or Americana grouping without spending lots of money.

BONE MESS FORK

Those most familiar with our interest will not be surprised that we offer a lowly eating fork with such enthusiasm. Of all that is of interest to the true historic items collector, frequently the most common utility of the common citizen is most elusive. As a readily available, durable, and relatively easily worked material, common utilitarian items such as tooth brushes, eating utensils, small buckles, buttons and a myriad of such simple commonplace items were fashioned of bone in the Civil War era. While certain categories have survived in some quantity ,others such as the toothbrush or eating utensil were mostly used up and cast asides seldom to survive to reach todayís collectors market. This bone fork is an exception. It measures just under 6 Ĺ inches in length and sports three slender tines as was indicative of the 18th to mid 19th century. A desirable and hard to find addition to any quality collection. please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!!
