    Civil War M1858 Smooth Side Canteen with Stenciled ID to 6th New Hampshire Infantry. Equipment from New Hampshire is more commonly encountered with unit ID than that from any other state. Very fine condition with coarse brown wool cover stenciled "6 / N. H." on front cover. Front face of cover perfect, back face with one small 'worn' spot under which there is a shallow dent, possibly implying a point where the piece was struck. Unmarked pewter spout with original chain and stopper. The 6th New Hampshire mustered into US service in December 1861 and served to the end of the war losing 187 men killed and mortally wounded. The regiment was engaged at Antietam, Chancellorsville, Vicksburg, The Wilderness and Petersburg. Very nice unquestionably authentic ID'd Civil War canteen.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
