important- U.S. Army then Confederate- Gen. David E. Twiggs - CAMEO

Our photographs will do best to describe this quality identified antique portrait cameo except to advise that the shell cameo remains in fine condition with no stains, cracks or chips and is offered here with a period ink penned identification D. E. Twiggs tucked in the back of the gold setting.
Born in Richmond county Georgia in 1790 David Emanuel Twiggs served in the U. S. military in the War of 1812, the Seminole Wars and the Black Hawk War becoming a Colonel of the 2nd U. S. Dragoons in 1836. In the Mexican War Twiggs led an army brigade at the battles of Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma. Promoted to brigadier General in 1846 Twiggs was a division commander at the battle of Monterey and was in command of the 2nd Division of Regulars leading that division in all battles from Veracruz through Mexico City. Wounded at Chapultepec, Gen. Twiggs was appointed military governor of Veracruz after the fall of Mexico City. After the Mexican War Bvt. Major General Twiggs was placed in command of the Department of Texas and held that position when the Civil War broke. As the Southern states began to secede Twiggs surrendered his entire command to the Confederacy. This included all Federal installations, property and soldiers in Texas. Subsequently Twiggs was dismissed from the Union Army and accepted a commission as Major General Confederate States Army and was placed in command of the Confederate Department of Louisiana. He retired in October 1861 and died of pneumonia in July of 1862.

4266

American Revolutionary War through Civil War-Military Size- BALL MOLD

A classic style iron ball mold best described by our photos except to advise the viewer that it measures about 6 7/8 inches in overall length and offers an especially desirable cavity size suitable for and most often related to, use with a heavy military musket rather than the more common and much smaller ball mold of the period hunter. The mold is marked with the #15 which, consistent with the early smooth-bore ball sizing system, indicates that the mold casts balls at twelve to the pound. With a patch this ball would load appropriately in a #16 bore. (Approximately 11/16 inch in diameter.) A nice companion piece with an antique powder horn, with a period musket or with a nice hunting bag. (Illustrated here with a vintage quarter for size comparison. ) Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !

rare c.1861 7 Star CONFEDERATE SYMPATHIZER – Parade Flag

A wonderful size for easy display this 3 5/8 X 5 ½ inch parade flag is printed on glazed cotton in the rare 7 star pattern in support of the first wave of states to secede from the Union to form the CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA. Appropriate for use for a period just under four months after the secession of Texas as the seventh state to leave the Union on February 4, 1861 (preceded in order by South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana) and May 23, 1861 upon ratification of secession by the state of Virginia. In consideration of the adoption of the first official flag of the Confederacy in March 1861, the Stars & Bars, some may narrow the useful period even further. Period seven star flags are among the rarest of the Americanstars & stripes configuration. Scarce in any size, the 3 5/8 X 51/2 inch is the largest known of the seven star variety with the vast majority of the pattern measuring in the neighborhood of 3 inches or less in length. (see: Thomas D. Schiera American Parade Flag collection) As to condition this example retains its original dowel stick and remains in excellent condition pleasing color and with even age toning. The flag has a tiny period letter D penned in brown ink near its center? An outstanding piece for the discriminating collector of antique Americana! Buy with confidence!

S. Navy Destroyer.

4492

antique Borden Eagle Brand Condensed Milk Jar

Better known today simply as Borden’s or Eagle Brand, the name New York Condensed Milk Co. will be familiar to Civil War historians for its contract with the Union Army as the primary supplier of condensed milk. An extraordinary field ration for the 19th century foot soldier, a typical 10 ounce tin provided 1,300 calories, 28 grams each of protein and fat, and more than 200 grams of carbohydrate. Popular among the troops and on the home front for its purity, durability and economy, Borden’s patrioticEagle Brand logo soon became a commonplace home kitchen item. By 1864 Borden’s New York Condensed Milk Company condensery in Brewster, New York was processing milk from over 200 dairy farms as demand was driven by home and military use. As milk was delivered by horse and wagon to homes in populated areas, fresh condensed milk was made available from the milk delivery man who received the product in sealed bulk containers. The customer brought this jar to the wagon and it was filled by the milkman from his bulk container. Along with the patriotic EAGLE BRAND Borden logo the reusable jar bore the reminder This Glass to be Filled Even Full on its rim and the 1858 date of founding of Gail Borden’s NY Condensed Milk Company. The company name appears on the bottom of the jar. This original period jar stands 3 ½ inches high, is 3 inches wide at the mouth and remains in excellent condition. The heavy glass jar was commonly stored in the icebox in a covered outer container. An interesting history and a tough item to find!

Confederate Navy identified: c.1852 New American Practical Navigator

With lots of good evidence of period use and some age foxing and light staining, this 1852 edition of The New American Practical Navigator by Nathaniel Bowditch remains complete in its 458 pages with the additional page of advertisements and fold out chart all with no tears or repairs. On the inside front cover is the small period stationers label of J. S. Kellogg DEALER IN Books & Stationary, Mobile, Alabama. On the flyleaf a the bold period brown ink signature J. D. Johnston with a pencil notation: C.S.S. Tennessee. Well accounted for in such early histories as DeLeon’s Navies in War and the Confederate Navy in the War Between the States and such as Addresses Delivered Before the Confederate Veterans Association of Savannah by United Confederate Veterans, Georgia Division and the Official Records of the Confederate Navy, James D. Johnston is recorded as Commander Provisional Navy, June 2, 1864, to rank from Oct. 4, 1863; Comm. C. S. S. Baltic 1861-63. Johnston was second in command of the iron clad ram C. S. S. Tennesseeunder Admiral Buchanan at the Battle of Mobile Bay where he was captured Aug.5 1864; prisoner at Ft. Warren; exchanged, Oct. 18, 1864; Mobile Station, 1864-65; surrendered May 4, 1865; paroled May 10, 1865. (Note: Capt. Johnston’s Confederate Navy sword is housed in the Hargrett Manuscripts Library Museum, University of Georgia; col:# ms508(m).) We found an 1896 obituary account as follows: J. D. Johnston died at Savannah, Ga., age 98; he is said to have been the surviving ranking officer of the Confederate Navy and the senior ranking officer by date of commission of the old United States Navy. Previous to the Civil War Johnston served in the U. S. Navy as Midshipman 30 June 1832; Passed Midshipman 23 June 1838; Lt. 34 June 1843. He resigned to join the Confederacy 10 April 1861.
