This is a scarce, non-regulation Confederate holster made to accommodate a Colt Army or similar revolver.

The holster measures about 10 ½” along the front edge. Holster pocket and flap is made from one piece of black bridle leather. There is no closure tab as the flap is designed to close by tucking the flap under a thin “belt”. Holster has a 2” wide belt loop on the reverse and remains strongly stitched in place. Holster has an open muzzle end. A thin half-inch wide “belt”, mentioned above, is sewn down at the ends and used to secure the flap.

Profile of revolver is visibly impressed in leather. Holster shows use and wear. Some flacking and finish loss most notably along fold on top of flap. Leather was heavily treated with a preservative in the past leaving it soft and pliable, if not a little waxy. All stitching remains strong.

Lightly carved into the flap is, “Co C  4 Va / Cav”. The 4th Virginia Cavalry was organized in Prince William County, Virginia, in September, 1861. The 4th Virginia Cavalry Regiment was made up of the following companies (all previously independent militia companies):

Co. A - The Prince William Cavalry (Prince William County); Co. B - The Chesterfield Light Dragoons (Chesterfield County); Co. C - The Madison Invincibles (Madison County); Co. D - The Little Fork Rangers (named for the Little Fork Church in Culpeper County); Co. E - The Powhatan Troop (Powhatan County); Co. F - The Goochland Light Dragoons (Goochland County); Co. G - The Hanover Light Dragoons (Hanover County); Co. H - The Black Horse Troop (Warrenton, Fauquier County); Co. I - The Governor's Mounted Guard (Richmond); and Co. J - Philip McKinney's Company (Buckingham County).

The unit was assigned to the Army of Northern Virginia. It participated in the Battle of Williamsburg, the Seven Days' Battles, and the Second Bull Run and Maryland campaigns. Later the unit was involved in the conflicts at Fredericksburg, Kelly's Ford, Chancellorsville, Brandy Station, Upperville, Gettysburg, Bristoe, Mine Run, The Wilderness, Todd's Tavern, Spotsylvania, Wilson's Wharf, Haw's Shop, and Bethesda Church. The 4th went on to fight in the Shenandoah Valley with Early and around Appomattox.

This is a nice, Confederate flap holster with unit identification.  [jet]
