44th Mass Veteran - Horstmann Brothers & Co. - G.A.R. FROCK



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.

Another offering from our fifty plus years of seeking out all manner of 18th and 19th century treasures with a personal interest in Maine Civil War (see: Maine Legacy .com) and Little Round Top Gettysburg related material, we had set this early post-Civil War Horstman Brothers & Co. frock aside for its association with 44th Massachusetts Infantry Little Round Top veteran Major Charles E. Sprague (see: With period identification marking in the right shoulder sleeve and Horstmann Brothers & Company Philadelphia label, (1859-1893) this frock offers late Civil War, early post-Civil War features to include a nine button, three button sleeve configuration, with padded chest and tail pockets. ( With Waterbury backmarked buttons on this Horstman Brothers & Co. frock, we suspect the coat to have been converted to G. A. R. use from general military stock.) With no condition issues and good evidence of period originality our illustrations will do best to describe this desirable frock coat.
Chas. E. Sprague mustered in on September 25, 1862 as a Corporal of Co. E 44th NY Infantry Promoted to Sergeant on January 14, 1863. With the hard fought 44th New York at Gettysburg where their loss on Little Round Top was 111 in killed wounded and missing Sgt. Sprague would be counted among the fallen and would be discharged for disability from U. S. General Hospital on March 10, 1864. He was breveted Captain in 1865 for his part in the Gettysburg action and would ultimately reach the rank of Major. Returning to New York where he was active in business and as a veteran, Sprague died in in Manhattan in 1912. ( The New York Archives has a lengthy article written by Sprague on his military service.)
