This item is from the collection of the Peter Miller Post #551 of the GAR. The Post was located in York Springs, Adams County, Pennsylvania and is believed to be named after Private Peter Miller of Company K, 1st Pennsylvania Reserves who was killed in action at South Mountain on September 14, 1862 and is now buried in Sunnyside Cemetery, York Springs.

Little information is known about the Post other than it closed sometime before 1925. In a letter accompanying the item collector Tom Gordon explains how he and his father found the relics from the Miller Post #551 in the 1970’s at the home of Civil War veteran David Starry. At the time the items were purchased the house was in the hands of Starry’s descendants. Mr. Starry had served in the 165th Pennsylvania Infantry and the 21st Pennsylvania Cavalry during the war and afterward joined the Peter Miller Post #551 of the GAR.

Item consists of two 26.50 inch long, opposite curved, iron bars that are attached at the top by an adjustable leather strap. Each bar has what appears to be a leather blinder on one end. The iron is rusted and the leather is dry.
