Z2647 Handmade Leather Cartridge Pouch
Description: Here is a very nicely made cartridge pouch made of leather. The leather is nicely stretched around a block of wood that has 7 holes. At one time, this block of wood would have been an original packet of ammunition containing 6 cartridges and one packet of percussion caps. The name Reuben Walker? appears on the inside face of the leather. On the inside of the long strap is what appears to be "This was Reuben Walkers" written in pencil.
Measures: 1.25" x 3.75"
Recovered: From the personal effects of George E. Cook Company A 21st Mass. Vol. Regiment
