IDENTIFIED CONFEDERATE CAP BOX

 

PRICE   $  1,925.00

DESCRIPTION

An identified Confederate cap box with lead final. This classic southern box is made of brown leather with a single, wide belt loop on reverse. Interior flap flap and side ears are present. The name "AMOES" has been carved into front flap of box.

The only soldier I can find that has this last name in the Confederate Army was J.E. Amoes of the 38th Arkansas Infantry (his name with this spelling can be found in the National Park Service database).  Larry Hicklen originally turned this box up and his letter also accompanies with a statement as to the same identification.

Amoes enlisted as a private in Company I on August 1, 1862.

 

The 38th Infantry Regiment, assembled in September, 1862, contained men from Yell, Izard, Lawrence, and Craighead counties. The unit was attached to R. G. Shaver's and Tappan's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department, and during the spring of 1864 united with the 27th Regiment. It fought at Prairie Grove and Jenkins' Ferry where the consolidated command lost 4 killed and 22 wounded. In January, 1865, the regiment was ordered to Louisiana, but probably disbanded. Its commanders were Colonel Robert G. Shaver, Lieutenant Colonels William C. Adams and Milton D. Baber, and Major R. R. Henry.

 

CONDITION

    Nice, complete condition with latch tab and belt loop  present. All stitching is complete. Front flap shows crazing and wear. It is very difficult to find anything identified to an Arkansas soldier.
