Civil War ARMY HOSPITAL STEWARD SLATE

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.

This small hospital steward or nurse’s marking slate measures approximately 6 ˝ X 8 1/2 inches in its dovetailed and pegged joint construction wood frame. The natural slate offers good evidence of period construction methods with the telltale, slightly uneven, surface of earlier to mid1800s hand planed slate sheet. The slate is deeply inscribed BROADWAY LANDING across the top with WARD No.. The reverse side has the roman numeral XIX crudely cut into the wood frame and the name Leon Silsby deeply inscribed into the slate. Both of these are much more crude than the hospital designation on the face of the slate but are clearly period. A rudimentary check produced no hits on Leon Silsby? Broadway Landing Army Field Hospital was situated on the south side of the Potomac River a little more than a mile west of City Point and about four miles from the northern end of the Union trenches before Petersburg. (see: Woman of Valor: Clara Barton and the Civil War p.266 also PBS / Ken Burns THE CIVIL WAR) We were fortunate enough to acquire a little group of period marking slates some years ago with a small number of similarly marked Broadway Landing slates mixed in among plain examples. Though we have offered them out to collectors over the years keeping a single example for our own collection, we did uncover this offering from the group as we prepared for our recent move from Maine to Washington state. A wonderful item for the Civil War medical enthusiast. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
