    Civil War Officer's Saddle Model 1859.
    Scarce and rarely seen at auction is this Civil War Officers Saddle Model 1859 with padded leather seat and trimmed in brass. This outfit is complete with stirrup straps, hooded wood stirrups and girth strap. The seat is solid and the leather is supple throughout.

    The consignor says he purchased this saddle about 30 years ago and remembers having information from the family identifying the saddle to have been used by Samuel K. Williams of Cincinnati. In the span of years the collector lost the original paperwork from but had written down the information about the soldier. Captain Samuel K. Williams of "I" Co. OH 43rd Infantry was commissioned captain in 1862.
