This is a very interesting southern copy of the typical Civil War “smooth side” canteen, the most popular canteen of the Civil War period. Canteen measures approximately 7 ½” in diameter. It is covered in tan cotton or muslin. The cover is complete and in good condition with one small hole and some staining. The stitched seam has no separations.

The three sling loops and spout are all present; and all made of thin sheet tin. No stopper. The tin spout has a folded edge at the mouth. The three strap brackets are also unusually narrow, only 3/8” wide. Typical of southern construction.

A hemp strap remains on the canteen and may or may not be original.  A “modern” inscription on one side claims it came from Fairfield, PA, along the retreat route from Gettysburg.

This is a solid example of a Civil War simple smooth-side canteen made in the south.  [jet]
