MUSKET AND BAYONET CARRIED BY PRIVATE JOSEPH PEAKER OF COMPANY A, 24TH REGT., U.S. COLORED TROOPS. . Rarely offered are weapons used by black troops during the Civil War. Accompanying this 1863 dated, Model 1861, Bridesburg contract musket is a letter from the consignor, who states his descendant was a doctor working in New Hope, PA, and he was given this musket and enlistment paper of Pvt. Peaker by a patient. Enlistment paper, 10” x 6”, though in poor condition, is easily discernible. It was written from Camp William Penn at Chelton Hills, PA., March 27, 1865. This is the only enlistment paper of this style for a black trooper we have ever seen. The enlistment document, partly printed, partly hand written has a standing Union soldier in the lower left hand corner surmounted by an American eagle and shield above. The document has a fancy floral border. The hand written sections name Joseph Peaker from the State of New Jersey as appointed into the 24th Regiment U.S. colored Troops as of January 20th 1865. The accompanying musket has rack numbers “24 / 84” stamped on buttplate, which probably denote a gun (#84) in the 24th Regt. This regiment was principally recruited in the eastern section of Pennsylvania, and was organized at Camp William Penn, on the 17th of February, 1865, with the following field officers: Orlando Brown, Colonel, James M. Trippe, Lieutenant Colonel, Robert E. Stewart, Major. A large proportion of the commissioned officers had previously been in the service. Early in May, the regiment proceeded to Washington,D.C. and was stationed in Camp Casey, on the Virginia side of the Potomac, opposite the city. On the 1st of June,the regiment was sent to Point Lookout, Maryland, where it was employed in guarding rebel prisoners. About the middle of July, it was ordered to Richmond, Virginia, and after a delay of two weeks, was assigned to duty in the sub-district of the Roanoke, comprising six counties, with headquarters at Burkesville. Posts were established at each county-seat, where government supplies were distributed to the needy inhabitants, and the troops, were employed on picket and provost duty to preserving order in this section of Southwest Virginia. The regiment continued in this duty until near the close of September, when it was ordered to Richmond, and on the 1st of October, 1865 was mustered out of service. A very rare opportunity to acquire an identified weapon from this historic colored unit. CONDITION: Paper is cracked and separated at numerous folds, with minor paper losses and dry mounted on board.  Metal surfaces of musket are cleaned and are gray and pitted.  Gun is missing rear sight.  Stock is sanded and varnished.  Accompanying bayonet is also cleaned, gray, and pitted.   4-32914(3,000-10,000)
