This early souvenir of Gettysburg is a clay canteen with one side showing an albumen image of Jennie Wade. Other side has lettering that reads, “THE ONLY LADY KILLED AT GETTYSBURG JULY 2, 63”.

Canteen measures just over an inch in diameter. Original string is present, which hooks onto small tacks on the sides of canteen.

Made by Henry or Charles Speese (Speese & Son potters, Seminary ridge) of Gettysburg, circa 1885.  Made from battlefield clay, these miniatures were described in advertisements as, "made from material taken from the most historical portions of the field, they are themselves relics”.  [sl] [ph:L]
