Civil War - Maine Presentation Mod. 1850 Foot Officer Sword – Port Hudson siege & assault

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.

Off our wall where we have enjoyed it for many years, this offering from our personal collection downsizing will best be described here by our photo illustrations. That said this Model 1850 Foot Officer sword remains in historically pleasing totally original, untouched and as carried order, with good evidence of the rigors of period use while remaining in pleasing condition throughout including its leather scabbard. The sword is nicely script inscribed Presented to Lt. A. J. Martin by Co. C 24th Regt. Me. Vols.
Andrew J. Martin was a twenty-seven year old lifelong resident of Pittsfield, Maine when he enlisted on October 13, 1862 and was commissioned 1st Lieutenant of Co. C of the 24th Maine Infantry. Lt. Martin’s regiment was sent to Louisiana where it was initially ordered to Bonnet Carre about forty miles from New Orleans. Here the Maine Regiment joined the 19th Army Corps, Department of the Gulf assigned to the 3d brigade, 2nd division, under command of Gen. Franklin Nickerson. Lt. Martin served with his regiment as it participated in the expedition to Ponchatoula and Amite River, the Capture of Ponchatoula, and action at Civiques Ferry. Ultimately ordered to Port Hudson, Lt. Martin served with his 24th Maine Regiment as it took part in the siege of that stronghold, to include the desperate assaults of May 27th and June 14, 1863. Lt. Martin mustered out with his regiment at the end of its term of service on July 25th 1863. He was one of only 570 of the original 900 to return to civilian life. A classic as was so frequently presented to Union line officers by their Company enlisted, this Port Hudson, Louisiana carried 1850 Foot Officer sword will present well in any grouping of good honest carried Civil War relics.
