    Virginia Rangers Walking Stick. The sturdy antler handle is neatly carved "Virginia Rangers 1863 - 65" with a nickel silver ferrule at the base neatly inscribed "Dr. John Dunn/ Richmond, Va." The Virginia State Rangers were authorized by an act of the Virginia General Assembly on March 27, 1862, and primarily operated in what is now the state of West Virginia. The Rangers forayed in small detachments behind federal lines, and were tasked with dispatching Union scouting parties and foragers, resulting in a number of sharp skirmishes. Generally regarded by federal authorities as guerillas, the Rangers were nevertheless subject to regular Confederate military authority. Missing the iron tip, otherwise very fine. Very attractive and historically significant.
