 Around about the Civil War era card and board game production started on the up rise in the United States with more and more card and board games being invented and produced by American’s.   W.& S. B. Ives, McLoughlin Bros. and, of course,  Milton Bradley were the leaders with more examples of their products surviving to be available to today’s collectors than those of smaller, lesser known game companies.  Offered here is an example of the card game <I>AVILUDE</I> or <B>Game of Birds</B> produced by  <B>West & Lee Publishers</B>, Worcester, Massachusetts.  A rare example for the game enthusiast this example will display well or do well to fill a gap in the collection but comes with some loss from time and period play.  All in the original box with the original game instructions and publishers catalogue the box though restorable has seen better days and a number of the cards are chipped.  There are 60 cards plus the title card.  (The game originally held 64 cards.)  With wonderful graphics, and lots of period charm, this scarce card game will display well and is offered here at a price commensurate with condition.   As with <U>all direct sales</U>, we are pleased to offer a <B><U>no questions asked</U> three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased!</B> Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !


 A classic style iron ball mold best described by our photos except to advise the viewer that it measures about 6 7/8  inches in overall length and offers an especially desirable cavity size suitable for and most often related to, use with a heavy military musket rather than the more common and much smaller ball mold of the period hunter.  The mold is marked with the <B>#15</B> which, consistent with the early smooth-bore ball sizing system, indicates that the mold casts balls  at twelve to the pound.  With a patch this ball would load appropriately in a #16 bore. (Approximately 11/16 inch in diameter.)  A nice companion piece with an antique powder horn, with a period musket or with a nice hunting bag.  (Illustrated here with a vintage quarter for size comparison. )  Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !

Fleecy black wool trim at the collar, cuffs and jacket edges are tender with age and the natural hair wig is thin on its netted frame where it would have been covered by a cap.

General Orders

No. 335


Before a General Court Martial, which convened at Portsmouth, Virginia, August 28, 1863, of which Lieutenant Colonel J.H. Burnham, 16th Connecticut Volunteers, is President, was arraigned and tried, Private Edward Doherty, Company G, 15th Connecticut Volunteers, on the charge of Murder. 


The specifications state that Private Doherty "did, with a loaded musket, fire upon Corporal Francis P. Baker, of Co. F, 15th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, who was then on duty as corporal of the guard, thereby causing his death. This at camp, 15th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, near Portsmouth, Virginia, on or about the 20th day of July 1863." 


Private Doherty pleaded not guilty, but the court found him guilty, "but of murder of the second degree."


The court sentenced him to "be dishonorably discharged the service, forfeit to the United States all pay and allowances due or to become due, and be confined at hard labor during the remainder of his life." 


The order further states that "the proceedings of this General Court Martial in the above case have been approved by the Brigadier General commanding, and forwarded for the action of the War Department. The sentence is approved, and will be executed by confinement of the prisoner in the Penitentiary at Albany, New York. The prisoner will be sent under proper guard to Albany, and delivered to the Warden of the Penitentiary."

The Lincoln-Douglas debates remain our culture's model of what public political debate ought to be. This new edition of the complete transcripts of the debates and eyewitness interpretations of them includes a new Foreword by David Zarefsky.


Zarefsky analyzes the rhetoric of the speeches, showing how Lincoln and Douglas chose their arguments and initiated a debate that shook the nation. Their eloquent, statesmanlike discussion of the morality of slavery illustrates the masterful use of rhetorical strategies and tactics in the public forum. 


"Angle's introduction and short introductory notes to each speech provide the reader with an excellent analysis of the problem of slavery in the territories, the movements of the candidates, their receptions in the various Illinois towns, as well as the physical arrangements, audience, and weather for each debate. Since 1858, other editions of the debates have appeared, yet the Angle volume remains as one of the favorite and most valuable of the debate accounts." William G. Edison, Reprint Bulletin


Paul M. Angle, a noted Lincoln scholar, was director of the Chicago Historical Society from 1945 to 1965.

<u>James Jackson McAlester</u>: (1842-1920) Born in Sebastian County, Arkansas, he served as a Captain in the Confederate Army during the War Between the States, and in 1866, he went to the Choctaw Nation where he worked as an Indian trader. McAlester was the founder of McAlester, Oklahoma as well as a primary developer of the coal mining industry in eastern Oklahoma. In 1872, he married a member of the Chickasaw Nation which made it possible for him to gain citizenship in and the right to own property in both the Choctaw and Chickasaw nations. He was able to make lucrative coal claims in the area and to establish what eventually became McAlester Coal Mining Co. His trading company, J.J. McAlester Mercantile Company, was the company store for the miners and much of their pay was issued in the form of scrip redeemable only at J.J. McAlester Mercantile. He served as United States Marshal for Indian Territory (1893-97), was one of the members of the first Oklahoma Corporation Commission (1907-11), and was the second Lieutenant Governor of Oklahoma (1911-1915).
