Small black leather holster made for a small model pistol like a Colt pocket or Bacon revolver.

Leather is very thin but in good supple condition. Outer flap has a 5.00 inch long strap sewn to the underside. The strap is fastened by a buckle in the shape of an inverted “U.” Strap shows light wear but is still strong.

The body and side seam are in good condition. Plug is missing off the bottom.

Reverse has a single wide belt loop.

The item was de-accessed by a Texas museum who had a verbal ID saying that the holster was owned by a “CAPTAIN WHITE 17th NORTH CAROLINA.” Research shows only one possible candidate and that would be Alexander P. White of Pasquotank, North Carolina who was commissioned 1st lieutenant of Company A, 17th North Carolina Infantry on April 23, 1861. He was promoted to captain of Company E on October 24, 1861 but his Company was disbanded on April 2, 1862. The 17th lost heavily in men captured at Fort Hatteras and Roanoke Island.

Alexander White next served as captain of Company C, 56th North Carolina. He was captured at Five Forks and confined at Old Capitol Prison in Washington, D.C. and at Johnson’s Island, Ohio before taking the Oath of Allegiance on June 20, 1865. [ad] [ph:L]
