IDENTIFIED CONFEDERATE WOOD DRUM CANTEEN

$2,950.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 302-112

These canteens were easy to make by coopers and woodworkers and were turned out all over the Confederacy, becoming the quintessential “Rebel canteen” that was essential to the southern soldier and a sought-after war souvenir by his northern counterpart. The turned wood faces are connected by wood staves and the whole is held together by narrow iron bands around the circumference, themselves kept in place with three brackets that also function as loops for a shoulder strap. This one is missing its spout. The color and surface are very good with a pleasing rich brown tone.

One face is carved in a nice, period block letters: “S. Hogsed / Co. K 54 / SC”. Samuel P. Hogsed was born in 1832 in Transylvania County, NC. He enlisted into Company K, 54th North Carolina Infantry on July 2, 1863 at Strasburg, VA as a Private. He was captured at Rappahannock Station on November 11, 1863 and confined at Point Lookout, Maryland. Paroled in February 1865 and exchanged on March 1. Died in 1910 and is buried in Dunns Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Brevard, Transylvania County, NC.

It is unknown why he carved “SC” on the canteen instead of “NC”. Nevertheless, this is an absolutely dead-real and fully original Confederate canteen with identification.  [jet]  [ph:L]
