Product Description

Here is another nice item being offered, it is a Combination Gun Tool for the Pattern 1854 Austrian Lorenz musket. Overall it measures approximately 4” x 4”. The Lorenz was the third most used rifle-musket during the Civil War, with US purchases in excess of 250,000 and documented CS purchases of at least 100,000. It was found years ago in a New York camp at Falmouth, Virginia (see period photograph).

During the Civil War, Falmouth was occupied by Union forces in 1862 and 1863, and Northern commanders located their headquarters southeast of the town during the Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville campaigns. In May 1864, Union wounded and Confederate prisoners from the battles of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House were transported through the area to the wharves at Belle Plain on Potomac Creek, a tributary of the Potomac River, located east of Falmouth.

This is a great relic that I acquired quite a few years ago. As expected, it has some overall surface rust, but it was coated with a varnish for preservation and is now solid with no chipping or flaking.
