2836

Ned Bartonís - FRAGMENTíS OF (Civil War) HISTORY

Offered here as a group are five fragments of history collected by Clara Bartonís first cousin Edmund Mills (Ned) Barton and pasted into his personal scrap book as keepsakes of his Civil War service as a special field agent to the 5th Army Corps, Army of the Potomac. (see: Stephen B. Oates A WOMAN OF VALOR Ė Clara Barton & the Civil War pages 222, 237-239 and 269-270) Unfortunate as it was that the scrapbook had been broken up and separated from Ned Bartonís letters now in a collection in Worcester, Mass., when we had an opportunity to acquire these remaining fragments from Bartonís scrapbook some time ago we felt they were worthy of preservation and were pleased to add then to our own collection. Well itsí time to pass them on so here is what the group consists of: #1 Ė A page from a pocket sized notebook lists the names of several Southern rivers such as the Potomac, Chickahominy etc. with a penciled note below in Bartonís hand. íFrom the notebook of a German Soldier who fights for the U Sí etc. ; #2 A scrap from a Confederate States, Quarter Masterís Stores invoice dated Oct. 1863. Has a penned notation on the back in Bartonís hand over his initials, íFrom Kellyís Ford Ė Nov. 23, 1863. E. M. B.í. ; #3 - A printed Frederick W. Lincoln, Jr. calling card with a penned notation, Reception 9th Mass. with íAdmits the Bearer at the Back Doorí penciled on the back; #4 - A printed scrap from the Confederate WAR DEPARTMENT, Richmond, November 1st, 1862 states that The following regulations for the Army of the Confederate States are signed by the direction of the President etc. with a penned notation on the back in Bartonís hand. ĎFrom a Rebel Camp Sept.í (?)í 63 near Culpeper C. H., Va. - E. M. B.í; #5 - Head Quarters Military District of Washington D. C. pass through the lines issued to a 15 year old book seller / peddler to the Army with section of scrap book page with Ned Bartonís penned notation, From (?)C. H. Va. in his hand. A neat little group of ephemera reminiscent of a more simple time when the collecting of such was popularly done as documentation and the pleasure of personal remembrance. Worthy of preservation in and of itís self the group will be of special interest to those interested in Clara Barton and knowledgeable of War time contact and exploits of first cousin Edmund Mills (Ned) Barton.

The alter will be covered with the national flag, draped black and white and ornamented with flowers. A chair (or chairs, according to the number of deceased comrades), suitably draped, will be placed between the Post Commanderís chair and the alter. The person appointed to deliver the address will be seated on the right of the Commander. A comrade will be detailed as drummer. The exercise will begin with a VOLUNTARY or CHANT, and proceed as follows:] Post Commander: Adjutant, for what purpose is this meeting called? Adjutant: To pay tribute of respect to the memory of our late comrade _______________. The program carries the service on with provision of reading the Civil War military record of the diseased by the Post Commander. [The drummer will beat three rolls upon a muffled drum immediately after the reading of the record.] A responsive reading is lead by the Post Chaplain Scripture is read and the service is closed by the Post Commander who reads the prescribed text from the printed program. All original and in nice condition with good evidence of age and period use but without tears, repairs or staining. A neat G. A. R. collectable of limited availability as such handouts remained in the hall for repeated use and are seldom encountered except as they became available from defunct G.A.R. halls.

2903

American Colonial / Revolutionary War era RAZOR / PATCH KNIFE

Often times the most rudimentary relics of our past, like the simplest utilitarian items of today, are the least likely to be preserved to be passed on to future generations. The true hand wrought everyday 18th century straight razor of our colonial period surely falls in that category with surviving examples few and far between. A good published example of the earliest of types may be found in Neumann and Kravicís Collectors Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution where, on page 240 fig. 1, a nice side view of one like the one offered here is illustrated from Neumannís personal collection. As is noted in the text of this reference, these wide bladed folding razors frequently did double duty both as a razor and as a patch knife for the trimming of the linen rifle ball patch when loading the trusty flintlock rifle, musket or pistol. We know from personal observation that these keen hand wrought folding razors were as likely to show up in a medical or surgical kit as they served the surgeon as well as the scalpel of the period. (see also: Valley Forge Revolutionary War Museum collection Valley Forge, PA.) This razor will measures approximately 4 inches long when closed with a wide approximately 2 3/8 to 3 inch long hand wrought high carbon blade. A rich natural patina on metal and wood offer unquestionable evidence of age, originality and period use. We have been fortunate enough to have acquired a small number of this rare type, each in pleasing all original condition, and are offering them individually priced for the collector/ historian who would like one. A rarely surviving example of 18th century Americana.

Civil War Army Hospital Nurse (8th NH Inf.) PHOTO GROUP

The two CDVs and 9th plate tintype will be self explanatory by our photos with the exception of the benefit of our research on this soldier. As you will see from our illustrations of this nice Civil War medical group, each of the CDVs bears a period ink identification on the back. They are identified as Dr. Luther Head - Son of Luther I. Ė ĎDriní Civil War. A quick check of the Historical Data Systems db (produced only one match) tells us that Luther E. Head was an 18 year old resident of Tamworth, New Hampshire when on 12/20/1861 he mustered in as a Pvt. of Co. I 8th NH Inf. (a.k.a. 1st & 2nd NH Cavalry). He re-enlisted on 1/4/1864 and was mustered out at Vicksburg, Miss. 0n 10/28/1865. A reference to the fact that Head died in Indiana and a bibliography reference to ĎOld Soldiers who lived in O'Brien County, Iowaí in the HDS database produced the following from that reference: íHead, Luther E. Born 1843 at Tamworth, N. H.; a son of Luther and Athalinda Bennett Head, both of whom were born in New Hampshire, married Julia A. Wiggin December 18, 1869; children G. P. and Leontine. Enlisted October 14, 1861, at Tamworth. N. H., Company I, Eighth New Hampshire Infantry; re-enlisted in Company C, Eighth New Hampshire Infantry, January 1, 1865; service as hospital nurse; discharged October 28, 1865. Settled in OíBrien County, March, 1870, section 22, Grant Township. Died September 21, 1872, and buried at Sutherland, Iowa.í A neat Civil War photography group for the Army Nurse and medical collector as well as the general Civil War and photography enthusiast, these three images bring with then the benefit of unquestionable identification and available research authentication. We are including a silk ribbon (see illustration) that came with the group but may or may not be Civil War period. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly.

Infantry, Colonel 2nd R. I. Infantry and Brig. General by Brevet on 3/13/1865. (see: Register of Rhode Island Volunteers 1861-1865 also Roger Huntís Bvt. Brig. Generals in Blue) A rare Civil War publication and interesting contemporary history in and of itself this example sports the additional desirability of being inscribed to Gen. Hoatio Rogers (Jr.) by his father. The book remains in pleasing condition with good evidence of period use and handling but remaining in solid, well preserved condition. Buy with confidence!

Civil War era MOURNING BADGE

This Civil War era mourning badge is approximately 3 inches in diameter and remains in excellent condition even to it's classic sewn on patent straight pin fastener (a feature of significance to the knowledgeable collector) . The style will be familiar to war era photograph enthusiasts who will recognize the type from period images of ladies and men of both military and civilian persuasion. The piece is fashioned from black crepe with a center of crimson silk over a black cotton gauze backing. (While solitary black was called for in the high or early stages of mourning, the inclusion of red or violet was consider suitable in the later mourning period so long as it was left to the mourning cockade alone.) A nice period example, hard to find on today's market but made in some quantity in the period and popularly worn in the Civil War era. Such insignia of mourning are frequently Lincoln associated by collectors as their popularity was at it's peak during the mourning period following the assassination with examples set aside and passed on as a relic of the tragedy. please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!!
