Civil War Soldier's Pipe, recovered at Stones River Battlefield (SOLD)

Out of Stock


Product Description

I recently acquired a collection which included many artifacts that were recovered from the Murfreesboro (Stones River, Tennessee) Battlefield (see period photograph). The item offered here is a soldier’s clay pipe measuring approximately 3” long.

The Battle of Murfreesboro (Stones River) was fought from December 31, 1862, to January 2, 1863, in Middle Tennessee, as the culmination of the Stones River Campaign in the Western Theater. Of the major battles of the Civil War, Stones River had the highest percentage of casualties on both sides. Although the battle itself was inconclusive, the Union Army's repulse of two Confederate attacks and the subsequent Confederate withdrawal were a much-needed boost to Union morale after the defeat at the Battle of Fredericksburg, and it dashed Confederate aspirations for control of Middle Tennessee.

Tobacco was very important and sought after by soldiers on both sides. In my recent book “The Civil War Soldier – His Personal Items”, I go into more detail on the significance of tobacco during the war. This is a great surviving example and free shipping on this item.
