BRASS TENDER BOX

  The brass tender box is great little item dating to long before the civil war. It was originally used to keep char cloth and your striking steel safe and dry. But if you think this little item was discarded once sulfur matches came into use you're wrong. Old ones were simply "repurposed", new ones were simply renamed and became a whole nother product. Last years widget is this years digit only "new and improved"! It's always been that way.
  Now your tender box can be your own personal spice chest keeping those little glass viles safe, or how about a tobacco tin. It would keep those short led pencils from getting lost in the bottom of your haversack as well. Anything you want to keep safe and dry, well just drop it in here and snap the lid. You get the picture. The point is they are on sale!

  I've got a great deal for you if you wear a size 46 or 48 waist. There were a couple of pair hanging on the rack near the window, too near the window as it turns out. They've got a little "sun fade" damage. Nothing terrible but you can see it if you look. It will not show up on a photo, that's why I did not bother to put one up here. You'll never buy a new pair of pants cheaper than this. Hurry before they are gone.

1881 SCOUT ARMY STOVE

  Well this was certainly an unusual find. You will have to forgive the name I have given this piece. The only drawing (no photographs) of it I have been able to find is in the 1881 book, "Mountain Scouting", A handbook for officers and soldiers on the frontiers, by Edward S. Farrow. It's on page 177 if you want to look it up.

  It measures 14 inches wide, 18 inches long, or deep if you prefer and 18 inches tall with the legs attached, the legs are removable. Amazingly it weights less than 10 lbs.! You can pack this stove anywhere. It's just as strong now as the day it was made, very useable. It has one small rust hole in the bottom about the size of a small pencil erraser but don't let that concern you as the surrounding material is strong.

  Now I'm not saying that this is original to the Indian wars. It may not be G.I. at all. The style is very similiar if not exact to the example I have givin above. You know as well as I that the army will adopt goods from the civillian market and vice versa but regardless of when it was made or for whom, it does have the look.

  Now should you wish to actually use this stove - go ahead. As long as you treat it with respect it will last a very long time. It's tin and tin burns out easily. The trick is to shovel several scoops of dirt into the stove to act as insulation against the heat and build small fires. If you don't do that - well - then you will ruin it in short order.

GEORGE WOSTENHOLM IXL SHEFIELD BONE HANDLE HOOF KNIFE

  This is the first time I've ever owned an original bone handled hoof cleaning knife ID'd as "IXL"! The style is pre-civil war. A good "knifeman" should be able to date it exactly (or close) by the markings. You can read the makkings with a mag. glass but they are to faint to photograph. The "hook" on the end is gone but that detracts little from it's useability or it's looks. If it were perfect it's value would be twice what I'm asking for it.

There is probably something wrong with everything in the photo, a little rust, a lot of rust, a ding, a dent it leaks - well you get the picture. The point is that it is all still very usable and it's really cheap. Is this a cheesy trick to get you to buy up all these rusty tin cups? Why yes it is.

SHUTTLE FOR A HAND LOOM

  This would be a very unique gift for anyone who loves weaving or the spinning arts in general. Like everything else I like - these things are really getting scarce. In the past I have paid as little as $1.00 for them and they were marked, some with war dates. Now I hardly see them for sale.
  This one has the single feed out hole in the back as is typical. It measures 11.5 inches long and 1 7/8 inch wide and is just over 1 inch tall. It's a neat little piece of weaving history.

CS FLOWER COAT BUTTON

  Here is a very good example of a CS Flower style coat button. If you are not familiar with the term don't be alarmed. It is simply the name that early diggers gave to any design of civilian button with a floral motif found in CS camps. Boy were they were plentiful! Some early camps would yield only 1 military button to every 10 civilian button dug. The two most common being the "flower" buttons and the "coin" buttons.
  This one measures 7/8 of an inch and has a very strong shank and I would not be at all afraid to use it. It has a strong back mark but I can not make it out. All these birthday candles are ruining my eyes! It's nice that there are still a few areas of this hobby that can be affordably collected.

BULLSEYE BLANKET STRAP

  We are all familiar with the heart embossed blanket strap buckle as several examples have been found in CS camps. This strap buckle is of the same era just a little different design. A bullseye instead of a heart. It is the same construction made during the same period. It is silver wash over brass with about 40% of the wash remaining intact. It is made for a 5/8 inch strap. Sorry I only have the one but there are a lot of things you can do with one strap. Of course I suppose it would look nice just added to your collection.

20 BRASS TACKS

  It's time we got down to the brass tacks - no really - brass tacks. I have here 20 brass tacks that I salvaged from a trunk dating to circa 1845. The trunk had almost rotted way leaving nothing of use but, that's right - brass tacks. If you consider yourself crafty oh the things you can do with these. The most obvious is decorating a trunk or any other small wooden chest. Why the possibilities are unlimited. In historical homes I've seen them used to put initials and dates on blanket chest. In the east, if your subscribe to an earlier era than the CW just think about decorating a trade gun with these! How many examples have we seen of that? Hundreds I'm sure. In the west and southwest that would be appropriate right up until the 1880's. I'll let you decide what to do with them I'm just happy to be able to offer some original hardware from the era.
  They are just a little smaller than the photo shows them to be. The head is 3/8 of an inch across and the shaft is a 1/2 inch. They will clean right up and be just as shiny as new. I would suggest pre-drilling your holes as the shaft is brass and easily bends.

1851 FLOWER HARD RUBBER BUTTON

  I am a great fan of Mr. Goodyear's 1851 patent hard rubber buttons, so much so that I have duplicate, triplicate etc. etc. in my collection. I think it's time to start thinning them out a bit.
  This little two hole beauty is what I consider a mid-size button, about 3/4 of an inch. It will work well for a jacket or the closer for a purse or just a nice addition to your sewing kit when laid out at your next living history. I personally like mis-matched buttons on CS jackets. The Carter House Museum in Franklin Tn. has a very good ID'd CS jacket with hard rubber buttons. P.S.
  Your eyes do not deceive you, the front of the button is a chocolate color while the reverse appears darker, almost black.

25 CENT GEORGIA NOTE

  Here is a very nice mid grade Georgia note that any collector will appreciate. It has one of my favorite scenes, no politician or statesmen just hard working men posed as if taking a break from their craft. This Milledgeville Ga. note was issued Jan. 1st 1863. The corners are not missing but folded under, easily straightened. A piece like this will fit into any collection. I personally like adding small abstract pieces to displays as it gives the appearance of a larger collection without the associated expense..

MUZZLE LOADER 12 GA.

  This 12 ga. muzzle loading shotgun is in pretty fair shape for it's age. No real problems, the barrels are clear and clean. It does have modern replacement nipples so someone has been shooting it but my lawyer says I that I can't recommend that you shoot it. He says, "Before attempting to shoot any antique weapon you should always have it thoroughly examined by a competent gunsmith to determine if it is structurally sound enough to be fired. Serious injury and even death can be caused by firing faulty firearms." There, now he's earned his money.
  Take a close look at the wrist of the stock, it has been cracked and repaired. It was not broken, just cracked. The action is pretty good, better than most with a 3 to 4 pound trigger pull on each side. Not a bad old shotgun, not bad at all.

HAND STITCHED LYNCHBURG TENNESSEE QUILTS

  There are so many things that I would like to say about these quilts and the wonderful lady who made them I really don't know where to start. First I suppose I should address the mis-information I hear being "spouted about" by some of our so called experts in the reenacting community. I have heard it said from time to time how incorrect it would be for a Southern soldier to carry a patchwork quilt - to which I would like to reply shouting from the roof top at the top of my lungs "B.S.!" And heres why.
  Take a look at any newspaper from any small Southern town that raised a company of soldiers. Not the war date but just prior to the war when these companies were first being formed. So many of these papers published a weekly list of the donations that the local citizens had made to said company. Why you ask? Because then as today publishing such things promotes the generosity of the giver. People love to see their name in the paper. Although I have seen many examples of this over the years the one I have in hand is a local paper with a list of some 120 items that had been donated to the company that would later become Co. G of the 41st Tenn. Vol. C.S. Over 15 percent of those donations were quilts. And yes they do make a distinction between wool blankets, jacards, coverlets and quilts in their listing. I'm not even going to start on the surviving examples of war dated quilts that were made as donations to fund raising events or war dated memorial quilts. The most famous of which being the 17th Tenn. quilt. So now I here you say "Well they were only early war". Yes and no, I don't know about you but my nice warm quilt would be one of the last things I would leave behind. I don't think they were much different. We tend to think about our own comfort fairly often. Of course attrition and the decimation of the southern populace and their ability to conduct commerce would have a very thinning effect on the ability to produce quilts so let's turn our attention northward for just a moment.
  There is example after example of surviving quilts and the paper trail which led to their construction and distribution to the northern troops by the good work of the US Sanitary Commission. Once again boys and girls that is why I stress the merits of doing your own research and tracking down the first hand accounts and primary sources of your information. Now that that is off my chest let me tell you about these quilts.

  Firstly I do not recommend that you buy one of these quilts and take it to a reenactment. That would be like taking your 32 Ford Roadster out mudding. They are just too nice and belong on your bed, at home or better yet in any historical home, public or private. The quality of workmanship and material is simply amazing. As a young child I sat at my Mother's feet while 3 generations of our family made quilts. I know a little something of what I speak.

 : So let me tell you about "Granny". Granny Lois Scroggins, the Grand Ole Dame who was the architect of these quilts. Mrs. Scroggins was born in Oklahoma City in 1920 and learned to sew, knit and crochet at a very early age. These skills helped support the family as during the dust bowl years they had to travel about following the work. Finally establishing themselves in Moore Co. Tenn. Which most of you will know better as world famous Lynchburg Tn. Home to the Jack Daniel's Distillery. During her adult life she would only sew for family, but once she retired she returned to her first vocation with a vengeance. Working 8 hours a day just as if she were at a public job she could produce a finished quilt in about 3 weeks by herself! Every stitch is hand sewn, top to bottom, inside and out. All the materials are 100% cotton including the tread. In design and scope she was only limited by her imagination which meant she had few limits as she was one of the most creative people you would ever meet. Sadly she passed away in 2012, near the end of her life her fingers had become to stiff to sew but she has left a legacy that will last for generations to come.
  The family is selling off a few of her quilts as they are down sizing due to health reasons. You will never have another chance to buy a quilt of this quality at any price and I do not expect them to last long. All of these quilts are very large, I will give the exact measurements of each below.

The bear paw meant "keep to the woods". This quilt measures 101 inches by 98 inches.

CHEWED .69 CAL. BALL

  This .69 caliber round ball was found in a CS camp in Wartrace Tn. As the story goes these balls were used by Surgeons when there was little or no anesthesia. The patient would bite down on these bullets to keep from cracking his teeth during the extreme pain of surgery. That would give us a very short window of when this ball was used. The only local battle to produce any amount of casualties was the Tullahoma Campaign which started on the evening of June 23 of 63 and the troops withdrawing from our area (Wartrace) on the 26th. CS troops never reoccupied this area again.

STEAMSHIP ROBERT E. LEE

  I know that this has nothing to do with the CW except the name Robert E. Lee but these are so hard to find I just had to offer them here.
    In the 1980's George Dickel Distillery produced a line of commemorative wooden boxes which held two - one fifth bottles of their fine product. They ceased the production of these boxes almost 30 years ago so as you can imagine they are all long gone --- with the exception of the few that I was lucky enough to find. The box tops are made from cabinet grade material and the box is very well put together. They are decorative, collectible and very hard to find. As you might imagine the R.E. Lee is one of the most sought after. Imagine using this box for a Christmas present or putting another gift inside it for double the surprise. You could even refill it with your favorite brand of spirits, I recommend G.D.'s though, they did make the box.
  These boxes measure approx. 12 inches long by 9 wide and 4 inches deep. The lids are snug but will slide completely off if you wish. This would be handy if you wish to do something crafty with the inside of it. Most folks will just use them for decoration around the old bar area but don't limit yourself. I bet you can thing of a lot of ways to use these.

  If you prefer I have the box tops only. You can easily add a picture hanging loop to the reverse (available at any craft or hardware store) and hang it on the wall for decoration.

ONE PINT POCKET FLASK

  This is the largest modern pocket flask I've ever seen. It's stainless steel and very well made. It was a display item so it has a few small scratches on it, all very minor. You have to look for them to see them. Only one I have left that's why the price is so discounted. It's been my experience that when it comes to flask bigger really is better.

ANTIQUE BEAN POT

  This cast iron pot is commonly referred to as a "bean pot". Remnants of originals are often found in CW camps by relic hunters, reproductions are commonly seen in camps at every reenactment and for good reason. They are the handy-ist size of all the cast iron pots ever produced. They are just the right size for cooking soups, stews and yes beans for your entire mess. Just the right size for heating water for washing up too. Now I don't think that any of the bean pots I'm offering for sale today are from the CW era but they are all very old and of the same style and size. No reproductions in this lot. After the 1930's commercial productions of these pots (with a very few exceptions) vanished. There was no market for them anymore. So you can bet this one is of that era or older. It will make a great addition to your camp gear. Will hold approx. 1 gallon of water. If you need more than one let me know as I have several

  This is a very versatile little document box. It's original and will be a great addition to any paymaster, provost or officer. This is an original black lacquer with gold trim tin that measures 11 by 5 inches and 2 1/2 inches deep. Sorry, no key. A little oil will really bring the paint back to life on this piece. I don't think this one is CW era but is the same style and color scheme as those that can be dated to the war.

POWDER FLASK

  This is not a well made top of the line powder flask. These are seconds, not all but some are bumped, dinged, bent and with a weak spring that will probably have to be replaced in the future. Their only saving grace is their price. Look at it this way - The spout cost what I'm charging for the whole flask so you can't loose. And who couldn't use an extra flask for priming powder, cream of wheat, etc. etc.

ROPE BED (circa) 1840

  I bought this original rope bed and feather mattress about 15 years ago up in Maryland. The mattress measures 50 inches wide by 70 inches long (there abouts) I've really enjoyed it but I'm running out of space for large pieces like this. I guess it's time to pass it on and let someone else enjoy it. You get the bed, the rope and the feather mattress but the quilt is not included. The Jenny Lind Trunk at the foot of the bed has sold.

SECOND PRINTING, NEW LOWER PRICE!
L. VIRGINIA FRENCH'S
WAR JOURNAL 1862-1865


  The second printing is here! Much of our initial printing cost and overhead was covered by the sale of our first printing of this fantastic book. Now we can offer it to you at an even lower price than before. Hopefully this will give even more people access to this book which many are calling the "Civilian Company Aytch".

  L. Virginia French's journal gives the best insight into the everyday life of a Middle Tennessean that was ever put to pen. During the first part of the journal her thoughts are somewhat philosophical but as time goes on and the war comes to her home in McMinnville Tennessee it all becomes very personal. Accounts of Yankee raids on the town, factories burned without warning while the female workers are still on the top floor and Cavalry battles literally in her front yard. She entertains General John Hunt Morgan and his new bride Mattie Ready Morgan days after their wedding. Fans of General Morgan will be amazed at the stories Mrs. French records in her journal as told by the General himself. Written down the very day of the telling. General Wheeler visits so often that a member of his staff becomes engaged to Virginia's niece!
  Women will be astounded by the details of of the local ladies dress, right down to the fabric, buttons and even their jewelry.
  Details of how Terry's Texas Rangers were re-equipped by the local tradesmen, from their horse tac, shoes, boots and even how the local ladies pitched in to help with the clothing.
  Every General officer, Colonel or Major that passes through the area calls on Mrs. French and she relates their tales to you through her journal. So many of the nagging questions about everyday life during the period, that I never thought I would know the answer to unfolded before me in crystal clarity as I read this journal.
  It is probably best that we let her speak for herself.

  A very small portion of this journal has been edited for clarity. In a few cases so has the spelling. But for the most part is appears here just as it does in the journal.

1860 CAVALRY SABER

  Wow! what a great deal on an 1860 Cav. saber. These sabers are very sturdy and well made. The size and weight of this blade is very close to the originals too. There are some dings on the leather handle wraps but nothing larger than a quarter inch. Nothing to loose any sleep over, just thought you should know. The best part about these sabers is the price. Only $44.95. I've only got a few. If you want one you had better get it now before they are all gone.

BRASS BUCKLES

  Sorry that the photo is not as clear as it should be. These cast brass buckles are not the top quality buckles that we sell everyday. But with that being said I'll add that they aint that bad either. They have the traditional C.W. style back but they are easily converted to fit your everyday belt. Made from solid cast brass that will last a lifetime. But I saved the best for last, they are super cheap! $5.95 each for oval or rectangle buckles and $9.95 for tongue and wreath. It's hard to go wrong at that price.

Here's the line up; Top left tongue and wreath is a Ky. state seal.
