    Civil War Gauntlets Belonging to Lieutenant Jirah I. Young, Company H, New York 143rd Volunteer Infantry. Stunning pair of identified Civil War gauntlets expertly lettered in red paint on the inside cuff of the right gauntlet "Liet. J. I. Young / Nov 29th 1864". Regulation gauntlets with split cuffs, bound and lined in doeskin. Jirah (also Jeriah) Young enlisted on August 22, 1862 as a Lieutenant and mustered into H Company, New York 143rd Infantry. The importance of the date is unknown, but certainly coincides with the 143rd's participation in Sherman's Savannah Campaign and the march to the sea. Hard to imagine these gauntlets could be upgraded.
