Pair of original Civil War Rosewood drumsticks (ON HOLD,B)

Out of Stock

$195.00

Product Description

Being offered is a pair of Federal-issue drum sticks. They are made of rosewood and each measures approximately 16 ½” long. Drummers were responsible for beating out vital battle orders and communication signals, they were placed in harm's way from the beginning of the fight to its conclusion. And when the battle was over, drummer boys were also relied upon to police the field, helping to carry wounded men to the hospital tents, and to bury the slain

There is a pair of these type of drum sticks in a period photograph of Drummer David Auld of the 43rd Ohio Infantry (see pictures). There are also a pair in the Gettysburg National Battlefield Museum (see pictures). At one time these drumsticks were part of the Lewis Leigh collection. These sticks are in very nice condition with no cracks or damage. In my book "The Civil War Soldier - His Personal Items", I discuss the importance of music to the Civil War soldier. They would make a great addition to any Civil War collection.
