A single SMITH’S PAT. 1861 extra rich (double border) Infantry Major shoulder strap remains in excellent original condition and bears the period identification label Major Chas. P. Chandler S & F 1st Massachusetts. A 26 year old resident of Boston when he enlisted on May 22, 1661 and was commissioned as a Major, Field & Staff 1st Mass. Volunteer Infantry. Major Chandler served with his 1st Mass. Vols. At 1 st Bull Run, Yorktown , Williamsburg, Fair Oakes and Seven Pines. In the action known as the Seven Days before Richmond Major Chandler was killed in action at the Battle of Nelson’s Farm, Virginia, on June 30, 1862. There was some early confusion as to whether Chandler was killed, wounded, or captured in the fight as his body was never recovered. As a result he was simply carried as missing until August, 1864 when his status was officially recorded as killed at the Battle of Glendale, June 30, 1862.
Held in our own collection of Maine related Civil War material for years (Chandler was born in Foxcroft, Maine) it is time to move this nice old Major’s strap on. The Massachusetts collector will be interested to know that Chandler’s 1861 issue Ames sword and 3-volume Casey’s Infantry Tactics showed up in a Maine auction some years ago. We missed this lot but it is out there somewhere. Per verbal history, the straps were separated by the family so I expect the other half of the pair is out there as well.

Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
