Antebellum SLAVE SERVANT’S - WILMINGTON & WELDON RAIL ROAD TICKET

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Complete and entirely original is this COLORED SERVANT’S TICKET issued by WILMINGTON & WELDON RAIL ROAD Co. for ONE SEAT FROM WILMINGTON, N.C., to NEW YORK . The ticket measures approximately 17 ½ x 4 5/8 inches wide printed on one side only on yellow newspaper type stock . With a small chip of the upper left corner and some period horizontal folds (all visible in our illustrations) the ticket remains entirely original with no rips, tears, separations, repairs or stains. The top section of the ticket provides space for the ticket holder’s Name, Color, Age, Height, Marks,Owner’s Name and With whom traveling. The ticket was printed by the Daily Journal Job Office, Wilmington, N.C.. The ticket provides for nine transfers necessary for rail travel from Wilmington, North Carolina to New York, the appropriate section to be cut from the ticket and retained by a rail road agent at each transfer site.
Well known to American Rail Road enthusiasts, antique collectors, antebellum South and Civil War collector / historians, the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad was, at the time of its completion in 1841, the longest railroad in the world. A key Confederate resource throughout the American Civil War, students of the Union siege of Petersburg will be familiar with the part taken by the Wilmington & Weldon Rail Road in that action. An outstanding Americana collectable, this offering will frame up nicely or will lay in to enhance any number of collectable categories.
