Civil War Watches & The Men Who Carried Them

Written by Admin

On display will be 16 unique watches (and other Civil War battlefield artifacts) with documented provenances linking them to Civil War participants.

Several were presented and/or used during the recipients war service. Several others were presented after the individuals war service had ended, as grateful tributes by comrades-in-arms with whom the recipient had faced hardships and lethal peril.

A sampling of other watches from the Civil War period, both domestic and foreign, provide a perspective of the kinds of watches likely to have been found in the pockets of both Union and Confederate Civil War soldiers, including privates, generals, and everything in-between.
