Rare Confederate Mississippi Rifle Cartridge Label. Original & Extremely Scarce. For Sale

Rare Confederate Mississippi Rifle Cartridge Label. Original & Extremely Scarce.

Extremely rare Confederate cartridge label. "Ten Cartridges, for Mississippi Rifle Cal. 54. Round Ball. Augusta Arsenal, GA. July 1864." This was originally affixed to a packet of cartridges wrapped in paper. It measures 2.5 by 1.75 inches. The piece is in good condition, with a few spots of light discoloration. It was found in a collection of Confederate Civil War ephemera collected by a Union post quartermaster who was stationed in Nashville, TN in 1865.
Established in 1816, the Augusta Arsenal produced large quantities of Confederate war materiel from 1863 to 1865. The arsenal was under threat in November 1864 during Sherman's March to the Sea, with equipment prepared for evacuation until the Union Army turned toward Savannah. In the end, the arsenal was surrendered back to Federal control when Union troops entered Augusta on May 3, 1865.The M1841 Mississippi rifle is a muzzle loading percussion rifle used in the Mexican–American War and the Civil War. By the 1860s, the Mississippi rifle was generally considered old-fashioned but effective. In the rush to arm troops in 1861 many new soldiers considered themselves fortunate to have any rifled arm while many of their comrades carried smoothbore muskets. It was carried by some Union troops up until at least 1863, but Confederate cavalry and sharpshooter units used them until the end of the war, as evidenced by surviving Confederate ordnance requisitions.
A complete package of cartridges with label from the Augusta Arsenal recently sold for $7,500. This piece is sold with .
