CIVIL WAR INFANTRY BELT WITH BRASS KEEPER

$150.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 172-4584

This is a well-worn bridle leather belt with a brass “keeper”. No buckle. The belt exhibits surface cracking and some finish loss. Belt leather measures about 41 inches and is soft and pliable. Written in ink on the inside of the belt is “H.D. Morrill”.

A search of the Civil War Database reveals 17 “H. Morrill”s.  There is only one listed with middle initial of “D”.  While not conclusive, this belt could have belonged to Hollis D. Morrill:

Age 17, from St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Mustered into 4th VT Infantry in 1861; discharged for disability in 1862. Mustered into 45th MA Infantry later in 1862; mustered out in 1863. In October of 1863 he mustered into the 1st VT Heavy Artillery. He mustered out of service on August 25, 1865.

This is an original, well used infantry belt with a name and in need of a buckle.  [jet]
