Civil War Memorabilia Auction

Heritage Auctions will be holding a major auction of Civil War Memorabilia next week on Sunday, June 24, 2007, and Monday, June 25, 2007.

The auction contains so much Civil War Memorabilia that Heritage has done three catalogs for the event.

Some of the highlights:

General George Armstrong Custer’s Personal Battle Flag. It was made for Custer by his wife Elizabeth and delivered to him on the battlefield during the last days of the Civil War.

A sword carried by Ulysses S. Grant. “This sword, which hails from The Tharpe Collection of American Military History, was presented to the future 18th president of the United States by the citizens of Kentucky, who gave this token of their esteem to General Grant upon his promotion to ‘General-in-Chief of the Armies of the United States’ in 1864, a major turning point in the Civil War as Grant was being elevated to the same level of command as only George Washington had ever achieved,” said Gary Hendershott, Director of Civil War Auctions for Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries in a press release. “Kentucky patriots raised money to purchase this unique and extremely valuable sword crafted by St. Louis silversmith and jeweler Henry Folsom.”
