The hard fought 7th North Carolina Infantry took an active part in the fight at New Bern, then moved to Virginia where they became part of the Army of Northern Virginia. After fighting at Hanover Court House, the regiment participated in the various campaigns of the A.N.V. from the Seven Days Battles to Cold Harbor, and were also involved in the siege of Petersburg.  They suffered 51 casualties at New Bern, 253 out of the 450 engaged during the Seven Days Battles, 69 at 2nd Manassas, 52 at Sharpsburg, 86 at Fredericksburg, 37 killed and 127 wounded at Chancellorsville, of the 291 engaged at Gettysburg, 31% fell, 5 were killed and 62 wounded in the Wilderness, and 11 were killed and 28 wounded at Spotsylvania.

<b>Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills</b>

This is an early 1900's advertising imprint (NOT a modern reproduction) utilizing the T-67, 1864 Confederate $20 note, with vignettes of the Capitol at Nashville, Tennessee, and Confederate Vice President Alexander H. Stephens on the obverse. The reverse is an advertisement for Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills. It reads as follows: This is presented to you in order to impress on your mind the fact that DR. MORSE'S INDIAN ROOT PILLS Have been before the public for more than sixty years, and today are the most popular family Pill in the market. To those who have used them we need not say one word- they stand on their merit. To those who have not used them we simply say they are the best Pill that skill, money and experience can produce. They are a specific cure for most of the Blood, Stomach and Liver Diseases. They absolutely remove all Dyspepsia, Giddiness, Headache, and are most useful in female disorders. Don't forget! Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills. W.H. Comstock, Sole Proprietor, Morristown, St. Lawrence Co., N.Y. Very fine.

WBTS Trivia: William Henry Comstock (1830-1919) was the son of Edwin P. Comstock, (1799-1837) who founded a drug company in New York City sometime before 1833. The Indian Root Pills were first formulated and manufactured in 1854, and Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills were one of the most successful products to be manufactured in North America as part of the patent medical industry. The manufacturer of these pills claimed that they would cleanse the blood which was thought to be the cause of many diseases.

 Around about the Civil War era card and board game production started on the up rise in the United States with more and more card and board games being invented and produced by American’s.   W.& S. B.

Offered here is an example of the card game <I>AVILUDE</I> or <B>Game of Birds</B> produced by  <B>West & Lee Publishers</B>, Worcester, Massachusetts.  A rare example for the game enthusiast this example will display well or do well to fill a gap in the collection but comes with some loss from time and period play.  All in the original box with the original game instructions and publishers catalogue the box though restorable has seen better days and a number of the cards are chipped.

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 <B>#15</B> 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 !  This striking antique hussar figure is crafted in exceptional detail with wool trousers and jacket hand stitched and fitted to a 14 inch high figure with articulated arms.  Plaster hands and head are hand painted.  Exceptional detail includes hand knotted and stitched on braid, with tiny buttons. A white leather cross belt is functional with brass buckle and trim.  Miniature wire bullion epaulets, well-formed boots with detailed spurs set off the flashy hussar (light Dragoon) uniform. Fleecy black wool trim at the collar, cuffs and jacket edges are tender with age and the natural hair wig is thin on its netted frame where it would have been covered by a cap.

Washington, October 13, 1863

General Orders

No. 335

Before a General Court Martial, which convened at Portsmouth, Virginia, August 28, 1863, of which Lieutenant Colonel J.H. Burnham, 16th Connecticut Volunteers, is President, was arraigned and tried, Private Edward Doherty, Company G, 15th Connecticut Volunteers, on the charge of Murder. 

The specifications state that Private Doherty "did, with a loaded musket, fire upon Corporal Francis P. Baker, of Co. F, 15th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, who was then on duty as corporal of the guard, thereby causing his death. This at camp, 15th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, near Portsmouth, Virginia, on or about the 20th day of July 1863." 

Private Doherty pleaded not guilty, but the court found him guilty, "but of murder of the second degree."

The court sentenced him to "be dishonorably discharged the service, forfeit to the United States all pay and allowances due or to become due, and be confined at hard labor during the remainder of his life." 

The order further states that "the proceedings of this General Court Martial in the above case have been approved by the Brigadier General commanding, and forwarded for the action of the War Department. The sentence is approved, and will be executed by confinement of the prisoner in the Penitentiary at Albany, New York. The prisoner will be sent under proper guard to Albany, and delivered to the Warden of the Penitentiary."

Edited and with an Introduction by Paul M. Angle. With a new Foreword by David Zarefsky. Published by The University of Chicago Press, Chicago, Illinois, soft cover, 423 pages, index, maps, illustrations. Like new condition.

The Lincoln-Douglas debates remain our culture's model of what public political debate ought to be. This new edition of the complete transcripts of the debates and eyewitness interpretations of them includes a new Foreword by David Zarefsky.

Zarefsky analyzes the rhetoric of the speeches, showing how Lincoln and Douglas chose their arguments and initiated a debate that shook the nation. Their eloquent, statesmanlike discussion of the morality of slavery illustrates the masterful use of rhetorical strategies and tactics in the public forum. 

"Angle's introduction and short introductory notes to each speech provide the reader with an excellent analysis of the problem of slavery in the territories, the movements of the candidates, their receptions in the various Illinois towns, as well as the physical arrangements, audience, and weather for each debate. Since 1858, other editions of the debates have appeared, yet the Angle volume remains as one of the favorite and most valuable of the debate accounts." William G. Edison, Reprint Bulletin

Paul M. Angle, a noted Lincoln scholar, was director of the Chicago Historical Society from 1945 to 1965.
