    Description

    ID'd Union Soldier's Captured Confederate Canteen, 7.25" diameter, cedar construction with two iron bands securing sides and three iron sling brackets, one face is boldly carved "I. S. Moore. Co C. 103rd O. V. I." by its captor while the other is simply carved "J. H. Winton" by its original owner. Minor scuffing and wear with some shrinkage causing seams to open. Excellent patina, fine condition.
    Isaac S. Moore joined the 103rd Ohio Infantry as a corporal in July, 1862 and was demoted to private sometime before mustering out in Raleigh, North Carolina some three years later. Moore's regiment served in Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and the Carolinas. There were a number of Confederate Wintons in Tennessee Infantry who would qualify as possible original owners of this canteen since their regiments opposed Sherman in Tennessee and Georgia.
