Description:
Carved Burl Wood Civil War Pipe Identified to Robert Whittaker, 165th New York Inf., 2d Duryea's Zouaves. Entirely covered with rather primitive incised carving including geometric and patriotic motifs including, American shields, stars, a harp and an eagle. The front of the pipe displays a 5th Corps badge with "R.W./ Co.D/ 146/NYV" carved on the arms, all surmounted by crossed American flags. Shows evidence of having been heavily smoked, otherwise perfect untouched condition. Whittaker enlisted Sept. 9, 1862 and died of disease on Oct. 5, 1864 at Baton Rouge, La., the regiment having been engaged in operations throughout Louisiana during Whittaker's term of service. Accompanied by a complete set of records. A nice pipe with good history.
