    Description

    Classic Civil War Confederate Cedar Wood Drum Canteen Bearing the Hand-Carved Legend "J. K. Pierce/ his/ canteen" on the Face and the Initials "L. B." on the Back. Unquestionably authentic and of the period. Pierce served in Company "E" of the 13th Texas Infantry. His records show that his enlistment began in the fall of 1861 and he served through the entire war. The 13th Texas remained in the state for the majority of the war, with a brief period of service in Louisiana in 1863. The canteen is in excellent tight untouched condition, retaining the three original strap loops and iron bands, which are which exhibit deep dark patina, there is no spout. The carving shows considerable honest wear and interestingly the N in canteen is reversed. A nice Confederate canteen with super ID.
