Here is an amazing group of artifacts that belonged to Union General Ralph Pomeroy Buckland (1812-1892). Buckland was worn on January 20th 1812. He practiced law at Fremont, Ohio until he served in the state senate. He joined the Union army in January of 1862 as the colonel of the 72nd Ohio Infantry. He commanded a brigade in General Sherman's Division at the battle of Shiloh. He was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General on November 29th 1862, which is where he would have worn these epaulets. This large group has a centerpiece that is Buckland's pair of Brigadier General's shoulder epaulets. The epaulets have the single star on each side that denotes the rank of Brigadier General. They are the high quality style that were designed for each side of the General's uniform. They come encased in the original Japanned tin case from the factory. The case has the original handle intact on the top. It has a paper label added that has the General's autograph in fine brown ink. In January of 1865, he resigned his commission to take a seat in Congress. This is great because you know he had these epaulets during November of 1862 and January of 1865. In March of 1865 he was brevetted the rank of Major general for his services to the United States. In 1876, his former law partner Rutherford B. Hayes was elected President. He died in Fremont, Ohio on May 27th 1892. The group also has Buckland's 1862 edition of the "General Orders Affecting The Volunteer Force." It has another autograph of Buckland's glued on the front. There is a business ledger from Buckland's mercantile business after the Civil War that has several pieces of paper inside. There is the Buckland family photo album. In the album, there are photos of their house as well as multiple images of Buckland. There are also 4 images of his friend, President Hayes. There is also a veteran's reunion ribbon of the 23rd Ohio. This is an amazing archive of artifacts from General Buckland. You get the entire archive for $4,500.
