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.

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

stenciled intiials & unit as seen in photos.
