Revolutionary War Brandy Canteen Battle Of Trenton Christmas 1776 Authenticated For Sale

Revolutionary War Brandy Canteen Battle Of Trenton Christmas 1776 Authenticated

This is a Tin Brandy Canteenthat has been handed down through generations of my family from the Revolutionary War.It is in Excellent condition, and includes historical information about the Soldier who used it and his most notable battle. He was one of my ancestors, his name, familial relationship, dates, and war servicehave been verified through family records.

This TinBrandy Canteen measures 4 1/4" tall (to top of cap), 3 3/4" width, and 1 3/4" depth at it's thickest point. Ithas 3evenly spaced metal loops for attachment to a strap, we do not have the strap. It does include the original cap, it and it's threading are in fantastic shape and work great. The Canteen has one indentation along the lower edge, about 1" long and 1/8" deep.

This information is on typed labels on the canteen - one side has smaller print/label and includes historical information about the Battle of Trenton (crossing of the Delaware). The other includes information about thesoldier who carried it into the battle. The labels appear to have been glued to the surface, in fact, the entire surface of the canteen (except the cap area) appears to have had some type of glue or clear-coat brushed on to preserve it. As a result, it does not show rust or decay, other than some oxidization on the interior of the canteen. It will make an absolutely fantastic addition to a collection of Revolutionary War label is more worn, some words cannot be distinguished. It appears as if it was something cut out of a book, perhaps. What can be read is : 274. The Victory of Trenton (missing words) Christmas night (177 - cuts off) Washington, with (missing words) less than twenty-five hundr (cuts off) men, re-crossed the Delaware - then full of floating ice - an (cuts off) marched on Trenton in a furious snowstorm. There he st (cuts off) ised a body of Hes (missing letters) soldiers and took a thousa(cuts off) soners and a large quantity of (missing letters) ns and ammunition.

The larger label is typed and fully legible, however old. It reads: BRANDY CANTEEN Carried by Micheal Reasor a Revolutionary Soldier, Great-Grand-father of W.E. Redman Paris Illinois When George Washington, crossed the Deleware River, and captured 1000 Hessian Soldiers, on Christmas Night 1776---
