(See: Frederick Todd, <I>American Military Equipage</I>, pages 578 & 579)  

As prescribed and illustrated in the 1859 U. S.

(See our old friend Rafaelís <I>ShilohRelics.com</I> item #L5149).   Seldom encountered as are all Civil War vintage Marine items, the particular scarcity of these fringed scales, even in even in period photos, would suggest that despite regulations few Marine enlisted were actually issued what surely became a <I>frilly excess</I> in time of war.   <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>  <FONT COLOR=#0000FF>Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! </FONT COLOR=#0000FF>

In less than 3 months after this letter was written New Orleans would be captured! The city of New Orleans, Louisiana fell to Federal naval forces commanded by Admiral David G. Farragut on April 25, 1862. On May 1, 1862, General Benjamin F. Butler marched into the city with 15,000 soldiers and took command. New Orleans remained in Union possession for the rest of the Civil War, and its loss was considered to be one of the biggest disasters suffered by the Confederacy.

<u>General Francis P. Blair</u>: (1821-75) The son of an adviser to presidents and the brother of Montgomery Blair, President Abraham Lincoln's first postmaster general. From secession to reconstruction, Francis P. Blair, Jr. made a series of major contributions to the Union cause. No man did more to block Missouri's joining the Confederacy in 1861; as a U.S. Congressman he battled for Lincoln's early war programs; he was a distinguished divisional and corps commander in the Vicksburg and Atlanta campaigns; and as a post war senator battled the Radical Republicans in an attempt to bring reconstruction to a shattered nation. Blair also saw service during the Civil War in the Yazoo expedition, at Chattanooga, Sherman's March to the Sea and the Carolina's campaign. Both Grant and Sherman who were highly critical of most "political generals" rated Blair as one of the most competent military leaders of the war.


<u>Civil War Governor of New York, Horatio Seymour</u>: (1810-86) He entered politics as a Democrat and served in the legislature. He was elected governor of New York in 1852 and then retired from politics until the secession movement started. He believed that war could be avoided through compromise, but when the fighting began he counseled loyalty to the Federal government. In 1863 he again became governor of New York, and it was during his term that the New York City Draft Riots occurred. He was nominated for president in 1868 and retired from public life after being defeated by General Ulysses S. Grant.
