1st Maine Cavalry was one of the hardest fought units of the
entire Civil War & lost the greatest number of soldiers killed in
action of any cavalry regiment in the entire army. Bartlett’s
biography indicates that he enlisted at East Stoneham,
Oxford County, Maine on February 20, 1864. He participated
in a great number of engagements until the very end of the
war & was always w/ his men & “Bore a gallant part of all the
engagements”. A marvelous opportunity to own a group of
Civil War material from a cavalry trooper who served in a well
fought Maine unit.
1) This wonderful identified group begins w/ a cased sixth
plate ambrotype of Private O.W. Bartlett, a full standing view
in uniform w/ cavalry saber. The image is cased in an
embossed paperboard case w/ blue velvet interior.
2) Pinned inside the case is Bartlett’s silver identification
badge, a jeweler made pin, being a shield surmounted by 2
cut out crossed sabers. Within the shield is hand engraved
“O.W. / Bartlett / Co. B / 1st Me. Cav.”.
3) 1858 Regulation US canteen w/ cover & partial strap has
Bartlett's stenciled intiials & unit as seen in photos.
4) Regulation US Cavalry saber maker marked "MANSFIELD
& LAMB / FORESTDALE RI". Opposite side is marked "US /
JM / 1864". The hilt has a pair of intials scratched into quillon
which are not Bartlett's (DW). CONDITION: image is fine w/
good contrast, oxidation halo around edge of plate. ID pin is
also fine w/ silver patina retaining its original T-bar pin &
catch. Canteen is overall very good, sling is tattered & only
partial intact, cover is soiled w/ reductions but painted
identification is discernible. Cavalry saber is very good
overall, blade is gray w/ scattered staining, markings are crisp
& easily discerned, grip is complete w/ tight wire wrap,
scabbard has iron patina & a couple lg. dents near drag,
brass has light mustard patina.
