Civil War regulation brass Cavalry spur, dug Nashville

$75.00

Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is an excavated Civil War brass spur, typically worn by cavalrymen and officers. It is one of several variations of the 1859 US spur with a foliate design at the base of the neck. As with almost all dug spurs, the rowel has rusted away. It was recovered many years ago at Nashville, Tennessee.

The Battle of Nashville was a two-day battle in the Franklin-Nashville Campaign that represented the end of large-scale fighting in the Western Theater of the Civil War. It was fought at Nashville, Tennessee, on December 15–16, 1864, between the Confederate Army of Tennessee under Lt. Gen. John Bell Hood and Federal forces under Maj. Gen. George H. Thomas. In one of the largest victories achieved by the Union Army during the war, Thomas attacked and routed Hood's army, largely destroying it as an effective fighting force.

This spur is in great condition with a nice untouched patina. There is a very slight curve, but this is from being worn on the boot. It would make a great addition to just about any Civil War collection.
