A standard implement with every artillery piece, this is a rare Civil War era U.S. Army Artillery Gunner’s Lanyard. The iron hook at the end of the hemp lanyard was attached to the ring of the friction primer set in the breech of the gun tube, and the full length 13’ cord allowed the gunner to stand clear of the recoil path when the gun was fired.

The turned cylindrical wooden handle measures 4 ½" long and 1” in diameter at the center of the handle.  The hemp cord – or “cod line” as it was named in the 1863 Ordnance Manual – is full length. The original iron hook is intact on the end of the cord. This lanyard is in good condition and will be a very nice addition to a Civil War artillery collection.  [sm]
