 COLONIAL MILITARIA


3229 - GRAPESHOT FROM GERMAN FLATS, NY, SITE OF LOYALIST RAID IN 1778, On September 17, 1778 Mohawk Indian chief and British Loyalist leader Joseph Brant lead a force of 150 Iroquois Indians and 300 British Loyalists under the command of Captain William Caldwell in a surprise attack on the area of German Flats, New York. German Flats, now known as Herkimer, New York, was left virtually undefended by Patriot troops prior to the raid. The Indian and Loyalist raiders captured hundreds of head of cattle and sheep before setting fire to every house, barn and mill in German Flats. Despite the complete destruction of the town, including 63 houses, 57 barns, three gristmills and one sawmill, only three men were killed. The day before, four Patriot scouts had run into the Loyalists while on reconnaissance. Though only one, Adam Helmer, survived the encounter, he was able to run the nine miles back to the village of German Flats to warn the residents. As a result, the vast majority of the town's people was able to seek safety in the area's forts, Herkimer and Dayton, and survived the destruction of their town. 1" iron grapeshot, all with nice casting sprues, each..................................................................$25.00

3242A - BELAYING PIN FROM THE USS CONSTITUTION, The USS Constitution was refurbished in Charlestown, MA in 1972 - 31. Wood from the Constitution was used to make souvenirs and sold for the benefit of the repair of the famous boat. This belaying pin is attributed to coming from the Constitution [18" length] and a pasted note affirms that it came from the Constitution by Herbert M. Johnson on August 8, 1927. USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy, named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States of America. Launched in 1797, Constitution was one of six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and the third constructed. Constitution is most famous for her actions during the War of 1812 against the United Kingdom, when she captured numerous merchant ships and defeated five British warships: HMS Guerriere, Java, Pictou, Cyane, and Levant. The battle with Guerriere earned her the nickname of "Old Ironsides" and public adoration that has repeatedly saved her from scrapping. She continued to serve as flagship in the Mediterranean and African squadrons, and circled the world in the 1840s. A belaying pin is a solid metal or wooden device used on traditionally rigged sailing vessels to secure lines of running rigging. Also used as improvised weapons and means of discipline on both military and civilian ships. Wooden items made from Constitution wood bring high prices and this is a complete original belaying pin.......................$895.00

27003 - TABBY BRICK FROM OLD FORT DORCHESTER IN SOUTH CAROLINA, 3" X 6" yellow tabby brick labeled "Fort Dorchester, SC 1696". The old town of Dorchester was established in 1695 by Puritans from Massachusetts Bay. It became an important trading post and port until trade with Britain ended as a result of the Revolutionary War, by 1811 the town was abandoned. Fort Dorchester was constructed at the southwestern end of the town about 1757 during the French & Indian War as a strong tabby built fortification on the Ashley River. The fort structure had, at its center, a powder magazine and that was surrounded with an eight foot tall tabby wall. In each corner of the fort was a half bastion. As the French & Indian War came to a close and the Revolutionary War began the fort was upgraded and garrisoned by both the British and the American revolutionaries. The fort changed hands at least three times during the Revolutionary War and was finally recaptured by American forces under General Nathanael Greene in December 1781. The date on the brick predates the fort [1757] but the settlement was started in 1695. Tabby is a concrete made from lime, sand, water and oyster shells. Its origin is uncertain: although early documents record Indian burial vaults with walls made of oyster shells and lime, no such structures have survived. It is likely that Sixteenth-century Spanish explorers first brought tabby (which appears as "tabee", "tapis", "tabby" and "tapia" in early documents) to the coasts of what would become South Carolina and Georgia. Tapia is Spanish for "mud wall". An early relic of the South Carolina coast................................................$125.00

WASHINGTON AT MORRISTOWN, NEW JERSEY

WINTER QUARTERS

2000 - Washington and his army suffered defeats during most of the year 1776, culminating in a retreat in November from Fort Lee across New Jersey. Finally the tide was turned after the famous Christmas night 1776 crossing of the Delaware River, and the American victory at the first Battle of Trenton. This was followed the next week by more American victories at the Second Battle of Trenton and the Battle of Princeton. After the victory at Princeton on January 3, 1777, Washington and his army headed to Morristown. In that era, armies did not generally fight in the winter, and would take up winter quarters. Morristown was chosen as the location for this season's winter quarters. Upon arriving in Morristown on January 6, Washington made his headquarters at the tavern of Jacob Arnold, which was located at this site. Several other buildings and churches in Morristown were utilized by General Washington's army during the 1777 encampment. The main body of soldiers is believed to have encamped in Lowantica Valley (also spelled Loantica or Lowantake), which was located between what are now Woodland Ave and Spring Valley Rd, near Lowantake Brook Reservation. Washington kept his headquarters here for almost 3 months, spending his last full day here on May 28. We have a small quantity of musket balls that were excavated at Morristown. We offer a set of one pistol ball and one musket ball, ex - Deborah Sprouse Collection......................$49.50/the set

2001 - BATTLE OF GUILFORD COURTHOUSE, SOUTH CAROLINA, 3# solid shot, 2 7/8" diameter, [3.67#], a nice ball with nice surfaces but showing some impact from firing. The Battle of Guilford Court House was a battle fought on March 15, 1781, at a site which is now in Greensboro, the county seat of Guilford County, North Carolina, during the American Revolutionary War. A 2,100 - man British force under the command of Lieutenant General Charles Cornwallis defeated Major General Nathanael Greene's 4,500 Americans. The British Army, however, lost a considerable number of men during the battle with estimates as high as 27%. Such heavy British casualties resulted in a strategic victory for the Americans. Since the Americans had only 6# cannon, this is most probably British since they had 3# canon at that battle. Ex - Deborah Sprouse Collection. Rare.......................................................SOLD

2002 - A RARE GENTLEMAN'S OR OFFICERS SWORDCANE DATED 1777, 33" in length, 26" blade. This attractive sword cane has a fine blade with a even gray patina.

RARE...................................................................$535.00

122416 - A RARE AMERICAN SHIELD MOUNT BAYONET AND THE ORIGINAL LEATHER SCABBARD, An early Rev. War rare "shield mount" bayonet with a three step slot mount. Overall 17.5" with the leather scabbard 14", one partial strap attached to the scabbard. From an old Boston collection. The blade is triangular with a fluted bottom. The socket opening is 95mm. It is very difficult to date early Colonial Period bayonets. They were made in small numbers by local blacksmiths, without benefit of gauges and other production tooling common to European manufacture. As a result, no two are alike. This is a socket bayonet for a .75 - .80 caliber flintlock musket. Colonial Militias began forming in the 1730s. Because early militias focused primarily on defending settlements against Indian attack, the production and procurement of bayonets was spotty, at best. The more established militias, such as in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, are documented as having bayonets by the 1750s. However, by 1775, when the Revolutionary War began in earnest, only about half of Massachusetts Bay Colony muskets were equipped with bayonets. The forward - sweeping shank, flattened triangular blade profile, and applied socket construction point to the French & Indian War or early Revolution period (1755 - 1775). Ex. Robert Oswald Collection. Light patina to the bayonet. The leather scabbard is solid. A rare combination.....................................SOLD

122418 - FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR SPIKED TOMAHAWK, Iron forged axe is 7.75" with a 2" blade edge. The axe has an oval eye and a square shaped base spike which itself is 3" in length.

122419 - AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR BELT KNIFE, 11.5" overall, 8" hand forged iron blade, single edged design with moderate oxidation, brass ferule and a turned hardwood wooden handle probably maple designed for gripping with a broader base. Some old decorative turning markings on the handle. Atypical of those made and used during the Revolutionary War period. Quite nice...........................................................SOLD

Motif of a sword under a crown decorated with fleur de lis emblems with two large fleur de lis emblems on either side of the sword. The designs appear to have been painted on in a light gold with some red trim. There are small tack holes around the perimeter of the standard showing once it had been tacked up but the holes are not obtrusive. The origin of the standard as we know it came from a Virginia collector [collection]. The fabric dates to the 18th Century and is relatively coarsely woven linen. The color of the standard is a pale green. At first thought it appears to be a small camp decoration or a unit designation. Overall it is very good condition with the details bold..................................................................SOLD


THE FIRST BATTLES OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR - LEXINGTON AND CONCORD - A PRIZED PIECE OF REVOLUTIONARY WAR HISTORY A RARE INSIGNIA OF A BRITISH REGIMENT FOUND NEAR CONCORD, MASS. APRIL 1775

10619 - The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the first military engagements of the American Revolutionary War. They were fought on April 19, 1775, in Middlesex County, Province of Massachusetts Bay, within the towns of Lexington, Concord, Lincoln, Monotony (present - day Arlington), and Cambridge, near Boston. The battles marked the outbreak of open armed conflict between the Kingdom of Great Britain and its thirteen colonies in the mainland of British North America. About 700 British Army regulars, under Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, were given secret orders to capture and destroy military supplies that were reportedly stored by the Massachusetts militia at Concord. Through effective intelligence gathering, Patriot colonials had received word weeks before the expedition that their supplies might be at risk and had moved most of them to other locations. They also received details about British plans on the night before the battle and were able to rapidly notify the area militias of the enemy movement. The first shots were fired just as the sun was rising at Lexington. The militia was outnumbered and fell back, and the regulars proceeded on to Concord, where they searched for the supplies. At the North Bridge in Concord, approximately 500 militiamen fought and defeated three companies of the King's troops. The outnumbered regulars fell back from the minutemen after a pitched battle in open territory. More militiamen arrived soon thereafter and inflicted heavy damage on the regulars as they marched back towards Boston. Upon returning to Lexington, Smith's expedition was rescued by reinforcements under Brigadier General Hugh Percy. The combined force now of about 1,700 men, marched back to Boston under heavy fire in a tactical blockaded the narrow land accesses to Charlestown and Boston, starting the Siege of Boston. The flank companies of the 23rd were part of this expedition along with the flank companies of the 5th, 10th, 18th, 38th, 43rd, 52nd and 59th regiments and they were placed under the command of Major John Pitcairn (Royal Marines) and Colonel Francis Smith (10th Regiment). They crossed the Charles River on the night of April 19th and marched on Concord. They met their first opposition at the village of Lexington where the first shot of the American Revolution was fired and then preceded to Concord. Upon arriving, the Grenadiers were sent into town to destroy the military stores while the Light Infantry was dispersed to secure the area. Fighting then broke out at the North Bridge forcing the Light Infantry to withdraw. Colonel Smith ordered the expedition to march the 15 miles back to Boston, and seeing the numbers of Colonials gathering, he sent a courier back to Boston requesting re-enforcement. The Colonials attacked the column, taking advantage of any cover they could find along the road. The light infantry was deployed along the flanks of the column and the 23rd was assigned to fight a rear guard action. The British suffered appalling casualties. They reached Lexington, and were relieved by the re-enforcement column, led by Colonel Earl Percy. The march continued back to Boston and was attacked most of the way. The entire expedition suffered 269 killed or wounded. This insignia was excavated in the vicinity of Concord and measures 1 1/2" X 1", silver plate still evident with the distinctive Prince of Wales feathers features, hooks missing. Initially it was A HORSE ROSETTE. Excellent detail. A wonderful piece of American history dating to the site of one of the first conflicts of the Revolutionary War.................................................$975.00


9229 - RELICS FROM THE SKIRMISH LINE TO VALLEY FORGE, After Washington's retreat from the ill fated attempt to capture Germantown on October 4th, 1777, he retreated. For several weeks American forces camped about 20 miles from Philadelphia in Whitemarsh along high hills that were ideal for defense. Congress, now safely housed in York, Pennsylvania, urged Washington to attack the British in Philadelphia, but the Commander-in-Chief realized it would be suicidal. His men were worn out and ill-equipped. Even before Valley Forge, there was a supply crisis. Many soldiers were already shoeless and their uniforms in tatters. It was normal for 18th Century armies to cease combat during the coldest months and take up "winter quarters". Washington was looking for a place to rest his army that would "afford supplies of provisions, wood, water and forage, be secure from surprise and best calculated for covering the country from the ravages of the enemy." He sought the opinions of his generals on the best location for the winter encampment. There was no consensus, and Washington was forced to decide the matter alone. On December 12th, the troops began the move from Whitemarsh to the west bank of the Schuylkill River at Valley Forge. It was a 13-mile march that was delayed and took eight days. The troops crossed the Schuylkill on a wobbly, makeshift bridge in an area called the Gulph. They were forced to bivonac at the Gulph for several days after a snowstorm and several days of icy rain made roads impassable. On December 18th the soaked and miserable troops observed a Day of Thanksgiving declared by Congress for the American victory in October at Saratoga, NY. On December 19th, 1777, the famished troops finally marched into Valley Forge. These ragged soldiers might have thought the worst was over, but they were wrong. The following lots have been labeled by the excavator as coming from the skirmish line to Valley Forge coming from a camp on the retreat to Valley Forge. We have three lots of relics available:  All from the collection of Deborah Sprouse.

SOLDIERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

5118 - The remnants of fabric shown in this display originated from Revolutionary War uniforms worn by American Colonial troops and British troops. The red fabric came from a British coat and the blue fabric came from a soldier in the Continental American army. The old notes that accompanied the fabric state that both remnants originated from a pin cushion. One note appears to have been written in the late 18th Century and the other in the beginning of the 19th Century. The latter note is signed by a Mrs. L. C. Jefferson. While at the beginning of the war American troops wore varied colored uniforms, later the color was mostly blue fabric being the standard. 11" X 14", double matted. Certificate of provenance included. Shrink wrapped ready to frame.................$350.00  Custom framing available.....................................$65.00   [quantity limited]

5101 - REVOLUTIONARY WAR WOODEN CANTEEN, 6.25" X 8.0", this canteen has interlocking double bands probably made a flexible hickory. The body is made of oak and the original red ochre paint is prominent. The long gone leather carrying strap was secured by several irregular headed iron nails with just a trace of the leather. One band is missing showing the original white oak surface before paint was applied. It is thought that the addition of the red paint indicated military usage. Very similar to size and description to Canteen #15 in Mike O'Donnell's book. Definitely 18th Century. Even with the absent band the canteen would display nicely. Found in an eastern Maryland estate. An excellent value........................$395.00

5105 - AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR PERIOD DIAMOND SHAPED SPONTOON, overall 14" with an 8" diamond shaped blade. 3.75" tang that was crudely threaded to screw into a wooden haft that had a threaded receptacle.

The wooden 3" plug is cherry with a bulbous shape in which a small round mirror has  been inset. Late 18th Century.

During the attack, Polish nobleman Count Casimir Pulaski, leading the combined cavalry forces on the American side, was mortally wounded. With the failure of the joint American-French attack, the siege failed, and the British remained in control of Savannah until July 1782, near the end of the war.

Alerted to this move, Washington retreated farther, establishing a position in the village of White Plains but failed to establish firm control over local high ground. Howe's troops drove Washington's troops from a hill near the village; following this loss, Washington ordered the Americans to retreat farther north. Later British movements chased Washington across New Jersey and into Pennsylvania. Washington then crossed the Delaware and surprised a brigade of Hessian troops in the December 26 Battle of Trenton.

Trapped by superior American forces, with no relief in sight, Burgoyne surrendered his entire army on October 17.

1180 - THE BATTLE OF WADBOO BRIDGE [SOUTH CAROLINA], JULY 17TH, 1781, a detachment of Brig. Gen. Francis Marion's Patriots under the command of Col. Hezekiah Maham with Col. Peter Horry set fire to two British boats and destroyed the bridge. Lt. Col. James Coates and his troops made it across the bridge. Both sides had casualties. At around 5 pm, as ordered by Lt. Col. James Coates, Maj. Thomas Fraser and his SC Royalists struck Col. Horry's camp as they were eating dinner. Col. Horry's men were caught entirely by surprise, but quickly rallied and counterattacked. Col. Edward Lacey and his mounted riflemen drove maj. Fraser's dragons back with minor losses. Lt. Stephen Jarvis found himself in command of a troop and leading a charge, which was soon surrounded by Col. Horry's cavalry. He sounded retreat and rode out of the trap, but some were captured. One of those captured turned out to be a deserter from the Patriots and was executed by Brig. Gen. Sumter the next morning. The 19th Regiment of Foot arrived from Monck's Corner with a field piece that stopped Col. Horry's attack, forcing Col. Horry to withdraw, while Lt. Col. Coates placed his men around Biggin Church. Brig. Gen. Sumter thought that Lt. Col. Coates had marched out to meet him and placed his men into line of battle and waited. The skirmish with the SC Royalists had not been an attack; it was merely a delaying action. Lt. Col. Coates had been using the time to place all of his supplies into the nearby church and then put a torch to them. While the church burned, Lt. Col. Coates retreated with his men towards Charleston.

PROJECTILES FROM NEAR FORT WILLIAM HENRY - FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR 1757 - 1758

Fort William Henry was a British fort at the southern end of Lake George in the province of New York. It is best known as the site of notorious atrocities committed by Indians against the surrendered British and provincial troops following a successful French siege in 1757, an event which is the focus of James Fenimore Cooper's novel The Last of the Mohicans, first published in January 1826. The fort's construction was ordered by Sir William Johnson in September 1755, during the French and Indian War, as a staging ground for attacks against the French fort at Crown Point called Fort St. Frédéric. It was part of a chain of British and French forts along the important inland waterway from New York City to Montreal, and occupied a key forward location on the frontier between New York and New France. It was named both for Prince William, the Duke of Cumberland, the younger son of King George II, and Prince William Henry, Duke of Gloucester, a grandson of King George II and a younger brother of the future King George III. Following the 1757 siege, the French destroyed that fort and withdrew. The following projectiles were found in the 1950's at the base of French Mountain near West Street in Fort William Henry Village. French General Francois Gaston de Levis camped near here with 8000 soldiers, 6000 Indians, 200 artillerymen with cannons, mortars, light artillery, swivel guns and ammunition. The siege of Fort William Henry was planned her in early August 1757.

It was fought near Fort Carillon (now known as Fort Ticonderoga) on the shore of Lake Champlain in the frontier area between the British colony of New York and the French colony of Canada (roughly the present-day Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario, and mid-western states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin). In the battle, which took place primarily on a rise about three-quarters of a mile (one km) from the fort itself, a French army of about 4,000 men under General Louis-Joseph de Montcalm and the Chevalier de Levis decisively defeated an overwhelmingly numerically superior force of British troops under General James Abercrombie, which frontally assaulted an entrenched French position without using field artillery.

12160 - BRITISH CANNONBALLS FOUND ON SITE OF THE FLORA MACDONALD PLANTATION IN NORTH CAROLINA, 4 pound cannonballs excavated on the site of the Flora MacDonald Plantation near the mansion in Pekin Township, North Carolina [Montgomery County] in 2007. The MacDonald's were Loyalists who provided materials to the British Army and these cannonballs were found buried in groups near the mansion site as ammunition for Loyalist troops.

On 6 November 1750, at the age of 28, she married Allan MacDonald of Kingsburgh, a captain in the army and the eldest son of Alexander MacDonald VI [2]. The couple lived at Flodigarry on the Isle of Skye where they subsequently parented five sons and two daughters. Upon the death of Allan MacDonald's father in 1772, the family moved into the MacDonald family estate at Kingsburgh. In 1774, they immigrated to North Carolina. During the American War of Independence, Captain MacDonald served the British government in the 84th Regiment of Foot (Royal Highland Emigrants).

Legend has it that she exhorted the Loyalist force at Cross Creek, North Carolina (present day - Fayetteville) that included her husband, Allan, as it headed off to its eventual defeat at the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge in February, 1776. He was captured after the battle and was held prisoner for two years until a prisoner exchange occurred in 1777. He was then sent to Fort Edward in Windsor, Nova Scotia where he took command of the 84th Regiment of Foot (Royal Highland Emigrants), Second Battalion. After her husband was taken prisoner, Flora remained in hiding while the American Patriots ravaged her family plantation and took all her possessions. When her husband was released from prison in the fall of 1778, she reunited with him at Fort Edward. IN 1779, Flora and her daughter Fanny, returned to Scotland. Flora resided at the homes of various family members, including Dunvegan, her daughter Anne having married Major General Alexander Macleod.
