Item Code: 149-43

This fine item is a Federal percussion cap pouch attributed to Co. C, 165th New York Infantry, the “2nd Duryea's Zouaves.”

The leather is smooth and the whole piece is in good overall condition. This pattern has the “square” outer flap with closing tab sewn to the underside. The latch tab is unbroken and stamped “61” at the end. The outer flap features a company letter and regimental numbers: “C/165”. These are brass and have a terrific mellow patina. Their wire loops go through the flap and a secured by thin pieces of leather and wood slivers. The interior flap is unstamped and both “ears” remain firmly sewn in place. No fleece remains and there is no pick. Bottom has brass finial. The two narrow belt loops remain in place on back and are stitched and riveted. These loops are stretched and show honest field wear. All stitching is strong and intact. The letters “NY” are lightly scratched in two places on the back.

The 165th New York Infantry Regiment, or 2nd Battalion Duryea's Zouaves, was initially recruited for nine months’ service. This term changed to three years, and six companies of men were mustered into service between August and December of 1862. The regiment saw action at Ponchatoula, Port Hudson, Bayou Vermillion, Sabine Crossroads, Pleasant Hill, Deep Bottom, and Cedar Creek before being honorably discharged and mustering out in September of 1865.
