IMPORTANT grouping! - Maj. Gen. James Ricketts - Wound Projectile, Flag Fragments & more!!

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.

Recently re-discovered as we clean out the back corners of our 50 + year accumulation of treasures, is this historic Civil War grouping of mementoes was put together by Maj. Gen. James B.

The provenance of the above grouping as secured by General Rickets and Fanny, along with her treasured gift from Mary Lincoln of a lock of the martyred President Abraham Lincoln’s hair (now in our personal collection) will best be understood by a visit to our MaineLegacy.com site and clicking on the Abraham Lincoln link in the right margin. Here you will find a more complete account of the group’s history and how it came to Portland, Maine. Accounting of the Gen. Ricketts extensive military history to include his early Civil War service as Battery Commander, his wounding at 1st Bull Run and nursing provided to him by Fanny while her husband was imprisoned at Libby, will be more completely addressed by an internet search.
