    U.S. – LITHOGRAPHS – TWO CIVIL WAR BLACK AND WHITE

    SKU: 39-34

    $63.75

    This is a pair of black and white lithographs. They are matted and ready to frame. The top lithograph measures 6 3/4″ x 4.” It shows the Confederate States of America (CSA) Ironclad C. S. S. Virginia shelling Union frigates on 8 March 1861 at Hampton Roads, VA. On that date the Virginia sank two Union frigates. On the morning of 9 March 1862, the Virginia, more commonly known as the Merrimack (her Union name before she was scuttled and raised by the CSA to be rebuilt as an ironclad) met the U. S. S. Monitor in the first battle of iron ships. This revolutionized the world’s navies. The two vessels fought to a draw. Nevertheless, sailing vessels were soon replaced by iron vessels. The lower lithograph, which measures 11 1/4″ x 6 1/4,” shows Fort Sumter in the harbor of Charleston, SC in 1863. Fort Sumter was shelled in April 1861 by CSA forces and the Union garrison surrendered. This lithograph shows the Fort occupied by CSA troops and being shelled by a Union Naval Fleet.

    U.S. – PORTÉPÉE – ARMY

    SKU: 07-153

    $80.75

    I have had this portépée in a desk drawer for years. I cannot identify it. I will let the photos speak for themselves. Perhaps one of our sword experts can help us better describe it! (Any assistance is DEEPLY appreciated). [As often is the case in life, ask and ye shall receive. I have learned from a sharp-eyed reader that this is a 1902 U.S. Army Model 1902 portépée that was used prior to WW I from 1902 to 1912. Thank you to ZH from Massachusetts. Great area except for their baseball team. Sorry, ZH, I just could not resist! I DO thank you again for the helping hand].

    One of the Imperial German Army’s most elite Dragoner-Regiments was Dragoner-Regiment König (2. Württ.) Nr 26, to which this pickelhaube’s officer-owner once belonged. The regiment was formed in 1805 and garrisoned at Stuttgart (in the section then known as Cannstatt). It was attached to the XIII. Armeekorps. While it was considered to be the second of Württemberg’s Dragoner-Regiments, it actually was the “King’s Own,” making it more elite.
