7 7/8” x 5 ¾”, partly printed document on blue lined paper which has been filled out in ink. “CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA. Quartermaster’s Department. Invoice of Quartermaster Stores this day turned over to Capt. F. Saunders. 1 One Kettle Drum. C.D. Hill, Maj. & Q.M. Richmond, Va., April 16, 1863.”

Captain Fleming Saunders, the recipient of this drum, was a member of the 42nd Virginia Infantry. The 42nd VA was organized in July 1861 and saw action with the Army of Northern Virginia in many of their battles from the 7 Days to Appomattox, surrendering with only 1 officer and 44 men. They lost 62 at 2nd Manassas, 26 at Fredericksburg, 135 at Chancellorsville and 56 at Gettysburg.

The officer who signed this invoice, Major Charles D. Hill, enlisted as a private on 4/24/61 and had previously served in the 13th North Carolina Infantry. He later was promoted to Q.M. Sergeant, Capt. & A.Q.M., and Q.M. on the staff of General Wilcox. He was paroled in 1865 with the Army of Tennessee. After the war he was a tobacco merchant in Richmond, VA, and is buried in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond.  [ld]
