This is a wonderful group of things that belonged to Civil War Brevet Brigadier General Alvin Voris. Voris served as 2nd Lieutenant of the 29th and as Colonel of the 67th Ohio infantry. Voris was wounded in fierce fighting during the battle at Fort Wagner, South Carolina. This is the battle that is most famous for the actions of the 54th Massachusetts, of which the movie Glory was based. When we say he is a "Brevet" Brigadier General this means that because of his service to the country he was awarded the rank as an honor. This is a great group of items that include a post-war black felt slouch hat with US-within-a-wreath hat badge, a 7.5" x 10" mounted albumen (with faults) captioned "Old Virginia Battle ground of A. C. Voris", an 8" x 10" mounted photograph captioned "Reunion 67th Ohio Vols. Sept. 3, 1903.", a group of family-member photos (1866-1900), an 1849 Methodist prayer book that contains a red-stripe fragment of a Civil War-era flag, a small crystal glass inkwell, five G.A.R. brass clothing buttons, a pair of bone spoons, an ornate G.A.R. encampment badge issued for the 1898 meeting held in Cincinnati, and a 4.5" x 2.5" hand mirror. A xerox image of the photograph of the General accompanies the pieces. You get all of these pieces for one price.
