rare variant !! original Civil War photograph - 10th Veteran Reserve Corps

Housed in its period 15 1/8X 18 1/4 inch deep walnut frame, this photograph measures approximately 6 ¾ X 9 1/2 on its original 10 X 13 inch mount and remains in excellent original condition. The photograph mount offers a period brown ink penned title identifying the subject as Co. C 10th Veteran Reserve Corps / Washington D. C. April 1865. A rare view obviously taken on the same occasion as a similar view preserved on glass negative in the Library of Congress, this view records the presence of a small Black Drummer Boy standing with his drum at left of the enlisted formation. Standing at the right forefront of his Co. C 10th V. R. C. is Lt. Walter F. Halleck. A veteran of the 11th Michigan Infantry, Lt. Halleck sports an eye patch won at Stone’s River (Murfreesboro) Tennessee when he lost an eye and was taken prisoner by Confederates as a result of action there on 12/31/1862. (A period portrait complete with eye patch may be found on Find a Grave. Halleck is buried at Arlington plot section 3, grave 1783) The 10th Veteran Reserve Corps was initially organized in New York City in the fall of 1863 and was primarily a consolidation of the 12th NY Infantry, 13th NY Infantry, 14th NY Infantry, 15th NY Infantry, 19th NY Infantry and 57th NY Infantry. A bit of research will likely offer additional individual identification particularly of the officer at Halleck’s right. A rare photograph, well documented by a same sitting collodion plate negative in the Library of Congress. 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. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

colorful post Civil War Southern Reconstruction SATIRICAL PRINT

Our photo illustration will likely offer the best description of this colorful old print except to say that it measures 10 X 13 ½ inches and it is offered just as we found it torn from a June 16, 1894 issue of the satirical publication Judge. The cartoon is titled THE DEMOCRATIC RICHELIEU and is captioned - DEMOCRATIC SENATOR (ex-confederate brigadier): ‘Take away the sword. States can be ruined without it. Bring me the pen,it is mightier than the sword!’ The graphic satire refers to an all too common division between North & South during Reconstruction and the strong feeling by many in the North that ex-Confederate leaders were continuing their attack against the Union utilizing the pen and politics. A colorful conversation piece, this neat old piece of Americana will frame up nicely.

Colton & Co., New York 1857 A wonderful antebellum resource or simply a nice item to set out on a period desk, reading table or book shelf.

5509

earlier 1800s through Civil War era PLANTATION KNIFE

Acquired some years ago while traveling in Louisiana, this wonderful early hand wrought field knife with its massive 16 inch slightly curved, black iron blade and turned hardwood grip, will fit well in a myriad of collecting categories. With its long stout blade and naturally patinated grip from untold hours of long ago use, the piece is a classic of the early Southern field or cane knife style used by slave workers in cotton and sugar cane labor. Measuring just under 22 inches in total length with a blade that is a sturdy 1/4 inch thick at its back, this early utility would surely have been a prize to the field hand who would undoubtedly have been subject to close scrutiny while in possession of such a formidable item. Classic early construction is set off in this case by the presence of a well patinaed iron ferrule at the hilt with forged iron washer and peened tang at the butt. All reminiscent of so many hand forged D-guard and heavy bowie knives of Confederate popularity. An eye appealing piece of Southern Americana with Black History ties, the piece offers that telltale wavy blade construction knowledgeable collectors like and would not be out of place in a Confederate or primitive knife grouping.

In the Senate, he also served on the Joint Committee on Reconstruction, and was instrumental in drafting and passing the 14th and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution.

an original! Civil War era - BANDAGE ROLL & SPLINT

Offered here (main picture) is a single original Civil War vintage surgical splint and period bandage roll from the medical grouping described below. An outstanding Civil War medical display item. We added the (Quarter for size comparison.) Should you want more than the one splint and bandage offered send us an e-mail and we will let you know what we have. The box is not available.
Some years ago we were fortunate enough to acquire a Civil War vintage slide top box containing it’s period content of rolled home spun bandages. Each bandage is of the period loomed cotton sheeting commonly provided by home front volunteers who came together, particularly in the Eastern textile mill region, to tear and roll strips of available textile for use as bandages by Army medical providers at the front. Most of these bandage rolls are secured with a paper band* wrapped round with a protective seal. (*see photos: We were curious enough to sacrificed one of the bandage rolls to open the paper band. They are Odd Fellow Lodge dues certificates. The one we opened was dated 1849 and was from a Newburyport, Mass. I.O.O.F. chapter. Oddly enough the wood box containing the bandages bore a stenciled Masonic device. Obviously repurposed to band the bandage rolls, it seems more than likely the then obsolete dues certificates were pressed into service by volunteers gathered in the local lodge hall.)
The splint is fashioned of birch wood backed with cotton flannel, the thin wood being in narrow strips so as to conform to and immobilize the injured limb when wrapped with a textile bandage.
Please note that while the bandage and splint as found the bandage unopened and unused while the splint, as was common in the field, saw repeated use. This example is blood stained from period use.
