    New York Depot Canteen with New Hampshire Infantryman's Identification. Complete Federal contract smooth-sided canteen with gray wool cover, cotton strap and stopper with iron chain (present but detached). Piece shows genuine wear and is overall dirty, but is very sound and has a striking identification in large black lettering on the side "J. Langdell/War of 1861." His name is again plainly etched on the canteen spout. Sgt. Jacob Langdell served in Co. G, 16th New Hampshire Vol. Infantry from Oct., 1862 to August, 1863. A most appealing canteen with the look of a "veteran."
