Here is a rare piece of history of Confederate General Felix Zollicoffer (1812 – 1862). This is an original section of the uniform of the famous Confederate General. It is trimmed from his uniform after he was killed in action at the Battle of Mill Springs, Kentucky. His uniform was cut up by the Union troops and sent home as war trophies. This is a small section of buff leather. It was from his buckskin shirt. We had a similar piece several years ago that was sent home as a trophy as well. It is accompanied by a piece of paper that reads "A piece of the left sleeve of Genl. Zollicoffer's shirt taken by Capt. Van Arsdale Co. B 10th Indiana Regiment. Presented by Capt. V. to T.D. Brown Crawfordsville, Ind. by him to Mr. J. Harris." The piece comes beautifully displayed in a fine quality frame along with the steel engraving depicting Zollicoffer's death as well as a CDV image of the General. It also has an article from January 1962 newspaper article that tells how the piece was sent home. There is also a framed front cover of a February 8th, 1862 edition of Frank Leslie's Illustrated Magazine showing the General dead in the back of the wagon. This piece has spent several years in the Mill Springs Museum. Zollicoffer was born in Maury County, Tennessee on May 19, 1812. He was a journalist before the war but served during the Seminole War of 1836. He was elected to Congress and served until 1859. He received his commission as a Confederate Brig. General in the Confederate States Army on July 9, 1861. During the battle of Mill Springs on July 19, 1862 the General was killed in action. You get the framed uniform piece, the CDV image and the Magazine cover, all for $1,950.00.
