<b>With Nashville, Tennessee imprint</b>


(1816-1870) Graduated in the West Point class of 1840. Brevetted for gallantry in the Mexican War. One of the ablest Union commanders during the Civil War, he saw action at Mill Springs, Shiloh, Corinth, Perryville, Stone's River, Franklin & Nashville. However, his finest moment probably came during the battle of Chickamauga. His heroic stand on Horseshoe Ridge earned him the sobriquet of "The Rock of Chickamauga."


Wet plate, albumen carte de visite photograph, mounted to 2 3/8 x 4 card. Seated view in uniform with rank of brigadier general holding his sword. Backmark: Thos. J. Merritt's Photograph Galleries, 42 & 44 Union St., Nashville, Tenn. Age toning and wear. Scarce pose.  


Unused, 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 linen postcard, with full color illustration of American flags, and a bronze table with a bust view of President Abraham Lincoln and the words to his immortal Gettysburg Address which was delivered at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, on November 19, 1863. Descriptive text on the reverse: This Bronze Tablet has been erected on the old Wills Building in the Public Square at Gettysburg. In this house, then a private residence, Abraham Lincoln prepared his Address which was delivered the following day when the National Cemetery was dedicated. Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is considered one of the masterpieces of English literature. Excellent Gettysburg/Lincoln item.  


Sixth plate tintype in full thermoplastic case. Half view of a New York Infantryman wearing a kepi with reversed regimental numerals visible. I'm not 100% sure what the second numeral is, but the first one is definitely a "4." The second numeral is either a "0," an "8" or a "9," so this Yankee soldier served with the 40th New York Volunteers, the 48th New York Volunteers, or the 49th New York Volunteers, all good regiments. The reason I know that he is a New York soldier is because he is wearing a (reversed) "S.N.Y." belt plate. He is also wearing a 9 button frock coat with shoulder tabs, holds his musket with fixed bayonet at his side, and has a bowie knife, possibly a Sheffield, and a pistol tucked inside of his belt. The tintype shows light scratching and scuffing and some surface blemishes. The image has some obvious condition flaws, however, the content is extremely desirable being a triple armed Yankee soldier, with regimental numerals on his kepi and an S.N.Y. belt plate. It comes complete with brass mat, keeper and glass, and is displayed in a full thermoplastic case with velvet liner and scroll design. This is illustration #321 in the excellent reference book, "Union Cases, A Collector's Guide To The Art Of America's First Plastics," by Clifford and Michelle Krainik, with Carl Walvoord. Very reasonably priced.  Measuring approximately 17 inches square with bright color and good evidence of age and period use yet remaining solid with no tears or repairs, this vintage set of Signal Corps flags will display nicely as companion to any period military grouping.  While we believe they date no earlier than 1870s / 1880s their bright yet obvious age with good evidence of period use will complement any group display from Civil War through the American Indian Wars and Spanish American / Philippine Insurrection.  A tough item to find on todayís collector market.  <B>Don't forget to give our search feature a try</B> for special wants. A simple <B>key word</B> in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

All in pleasing attic found condition with no cracks, repairs or major condition issue yet with the charm of age and period use in the form of a chip or so at the mouth and age crazing, primarily to the inside glaze, our photo illustrations will do best to speak to the condition of this attractive remnant of the abolition movement in pre Civil War America.   Standing approximately 9 3/8 inches to the top of its figured handle, this scarce antique American yellow ware pitcher depicts the major events and characters of Harriet Beecher Stowís 1852 powerful anti-slavery work <I>Uncle Tomís Cabin</I>.   Depicted around the body of the pitcher are Uncle Tom on the auction block with a weeping woman and child at his feet.  An auctioneer plies his wares to potential buyers.   On the opposite side is the figure of <I>Liza</I> escaping across the frozen Ohio River with <I>little Harry</I> in her arms.  Cruel overseer <I>Simon Legree</I> is close behind with whip in hand.  Un-marked as to maker, the now quite rare period domestic copy of a more finely rendered and, in its day, much more expensive English pitcher of the same design, this domestic example satisfied demands for a less expensive and more practical counterpart.  Likely these less refined American yellow ware examples saw much heavier use than their more purely decorative cousins resulting in their extreme scarcity today.  An outstanding piece of antique Americana, this rare old just pre Civil War American yellow ware pitcher emanated from the remains of a small country historical society collection as evidenced by a small hand applied inventory number on its base.   A fortunate circumstance as otherwise the piece would likely not survived in its wonderfully pure and untouched condition.  <B>Buy with confidence! </B><I>  We are pleased to offer a <B><U>no questions asked</U> three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!</B> <I>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.</I>  Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

 Sawed to size (18 x 8 x 9/16 inch thick) from seasoned Maine white pine, then stenciled on one side, these panels were then stacked and sent along to the <I>box- shop</I> with corresponding plain pine panels each cut to proper size.  Here workers would assemble the rough cut panels to fabricate wooden crates and boxes for containment of all manner of goods.  Side panels for standard size containers frequently utilized pre stenciled decoration with a place left for later addition of the end userís name or content identification.  The bold figure of a steam powered <I>side-wheeler</I> with its American flag fluttering from the stern was a popular figure in the patriotic 19th century. We have a small number of all original antique stenciled <I>side-wheeler</I> box panels and are offering them here individually priced for the collector / decorator who would like one.  Recovered from the pine wood scraps of a turn of the century country<I>box shop</I> cleanout, these period panels remain in fine untouched condition with a wonderful honey age patina and clearly period stenciling.  Wonderful Americana decorators seldom encountered in such nice condition ! <B>Buy with confidence! </B><I>  We are pleased to offer a <B><U>no questions asked</U> three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!</B> <I>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.</I>  Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !

By Stephen W. Sylvia and Michael J. O'Donnell. Published by Moss Publications, Orange, Virginia, 1978. Large, 8 1/2 x 11 1/4, hard cover book, 319 pages, index, profusely illustrated. No dust jacket. This comes from my personal library and has my own embossed ex-libris on the bottom corner of the first blank page. Excellent condition. Great reference book.


The "Illustrated History of American Civil War Relics" is the culmination of two years of intensive research by the authors.


Tracing the history of relics and relic collectors from the tumultuous years of the war down through the ensuing century, the authors have, for the first time, portrayed the little known story behind the artifact.


Stephen W. Sylvia and Michael J. O'Donnell have paid honor by word and picture to the soldier, the historian, the collector, and the artifact hunter, and to these authors shall go the well deserved thanks of future generations of Americans for the preservation of the record to this date.
