CONFEDERATE WOOD DRUM GARDNER CANTEEN WAR TROPHY THAT BELONGED TO MAJOR EDWIN L. MOORE U.S. PAYMASTER
Original Civil War Confederate Gardner Wood Drum Canteen with an attic fresh patina. This is one of the items found that belonged to U.S. Paymaster (1862-1869) Major Edwin L. Moore. Moore was captured by General Mosby's Rangers in 1864 and spent time in Libby and Danville Prison. This relic was believed to be obtained in South Carolina and was found in a trunk at his great granddaughters house, Marilyn R. (Moore) Stevenson in Saint Paul, MN. Has one original sling keeper and two replaced. At one time it had the original spout but has been lost. Although it does come with a Federal spout for display if you so choose. Nice original leather sling that appears to have been with the canteen for some time. Also has the initial A.H. Kerr lightly written in pencil as shown in pics (Info in paperwork). Shipping is included. Please see all photos!
