    Description

    Great Identified Civil War Crutch. 48" overall. Squared shaft probably pine or poplar. Deep untouched patina overall. The top portion is covered with padded coarse weave wool that is tacked in place. Attached at the top is a 3 3/4" X 3/4" ink script paper label, "Used by Lt.. S. F. McKee / wounded at Chancellorsville" and just below in block letters and fabricated entirely out of tiny brass tacks "S. F. McKee". Cursory research indicates this is likely Samuel F. McKee of the 147th Pennsylvania Vol. Inf. Mckee joined the regiment on 12/01/62 as a Lieutenant, fought with the unit through Chancellorsville and subsequently died of wounds on 6/25/64. Unique Civil War artifact with superb ID.
