Offered here complete and as found is the stencil kit of Wm. H. Whitten 21st Ind. L A. Illustrated here with a quarter for size comparison, Sgt. Whitten’s marking stencil is housed in a handmade slide top box, the body of the box being fashioned from a single block of wood chiseled out and channeled to accommodate the sliding lid. In the box is a little period corked bottle with the original label identifying the content STENCIL-INDELIBLE INK and offering directions for use in marking cloth. With these is the original tin stencil brush and a small quill brush for fine hand lettering. A small walnut straightedge is included to round out this wonderful little marking kit. All original and as it came from decades of storage, William H. Whitten’s stencil kit would have seen use in marking initial issue articles of clothing from his September 9,1862 enlistment and mustering as a Sargent of the 21st Indiana Light Artillery and would have remained as part of his person gear through his service until mustering out on June 26 1865 after the close of the Civil War. He had been promoted to 2nd Lt. on September 18th 1864. Whitten’s 21st Light Artillery left the state of Indiana for Covington, Kentucky immediately upon mustering as that place was being threatened by invading Confederate forces under Gen. Kirby Smith. From there the 21st moved to Lexington, Richmond, Danville then Louisville. The 21st was engaged in action at Gainesboro and Carthage and participated in the action at Hoover's Gap and the campaign against Chattanooga. It was in an engagement at Catlett's Gap, the battle of Chickamauga and was part in the storming of Missionary Ridge. The battery was engaged with Forrest's forces in October then on Hood's advance fell back to Nashville, where it was engaged in the battle there in December. By mustering out the hard fought 21st Indiana Battery of Light Artillery had lost 26 by death. Buy with confidence!
