    Haversack Used by Captain Edward Sellers, 15th Cavalry, Pennsylvania Volunteers. This lot features a rare black leather haversack measuring 13" x 10.5" with carrying strap showing much field use. The straps to secure the flap are missing as are the original straps on the reverse side. There are portions of the original leather missing along the bottom edge of the haversack. The surface is scuffed and marked with use. The carrying strap is crazed but sound, complete with both brass hooks. A typed note found inside the haversack indicates that it once belonged to Captain Edward Sellers. Sellers enlisted August 22, 1862 as a 1st sergeant. He was promoted captain on May 8, 1863 and mustered into Company H of the Anderson's Cavalry, 15th Pennsylvania Volunteers. Anderson's Cavalry was an independent cavalry company primarily intended for escort and headquarters duty with General Robert Anderson, in command of the Army of the Ohio.
