Brass Scabbard section from a sword - Antietam (SOLD)

Out of Stock


Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a brass section off of a leather Civil War Sword scabbard. It measures approximately 5” x 1 ½” and amazingly still has the leather inside. It appears to be from an NCO Sword or a Musician’s Sword.

The Battle of Antietam, also known as the Battle of Sharpsburg, particularly in the South, was fought on September 17, 1862. This was the first major battle in the Civil War to take place on Union soil. It is the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, with a combined tally of dead, wounded, and missing at 22,717.

Despite having superiority of numbers, McClellan's attacks failed to achieve force concentration, allowing General Lee to counter by shifting forces and moving interior lines to meet each challenge. Despite ample reserve forces that could have been deployed to exploit localized successes, McClellan failed to destroy Lee's army. McClellan had halted Lee's invasion of Maryland, but Lee was able to withdraw his army back to Virginia without interference from the cautious McClellan. Although the battle was tactically inconclusive, the Confederate troops had withdrawn first from the battlefield, making it, in military terms, a Union victory.

Like I said, this is a neat piece and is really in remarkable condition. It is solid and the brass has a pleasing untouched patina. It is marked with “Antietam”.
