c.1864 - Alexandria Virginia Mayor - Signed check to Fire Dept. Chief Engineer



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.

Worthy of a home in someone’s fire collectables, Civil War Alexandria or just neat stuff collection is this December 7, 1864 check issued and signed by war time Mayor Charles A. Ware of Alexandria, Virginia to Richard F. Tatsapaugh who was Alexandria’s Fire Department Chief Engineer. The check is issued for $18.00 for repair of fire apparatus and is signed by Mayor Ware with the Fire Chief’s endorsement on the back. Interestingly enough the check bears a Federal Revenue stamp complete with its Dec. 7 / 64 penned cancellation. We have left the check as we acquired it, tipped at the top corners to art board. An interesting war time South relic without spending a lot of money. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
