Somewhat crude in appearance yet clearly period this scarce Confederate marking stencil is that of Daniel A. Atkinson a Sargent of Co. C 1st Virginia State Reserves (a.k.a. 1st Battalion 2nd Class Virginia Militia of the City of Richmond ). A bit of an enigma as Daniel A. Atkinson is also recorded in period military records (see illustration) as Daniel H. Atkinson. A check of a period Richmond Directory found Atkinson listed twice, once as Daniel A. and again as Daniel H. Both listings are for a cabinet maker and both are for the same address in the historic old Church Hill district of Richmond. (see illustration) The National Park Service database lists Daniel A. Atkinson as a primary name with Daniel H. Atkinson as an Alternate Name. (A copy of our research notes will come with stencil.) While little is written on the history of this outfit we did find that it was formed in Richmond 1862 and was composed primarily of young men between sixteen and eighteen with some forty-five to fifty-five aged members. Clearly an effort to make non-draft age men available for local duty thus releasing Regulars for more argues duty in the field. The Regt was largely employed as guards for Castle Thunder, and the Treasury Department as well as other posts within the city of Richmond. A scarce item, we have had this stencil tucked away for years having acquired it when it walked into a Richmond Civil War show back in the day. 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! :
