Click on an image to enlarge
This is a fine looking original Civil War staff & field officer's sword and we know who carried it. This is the classic style that was worn by high ranking officers of the Civil War. These swords are easily distinguished from the foot officer's swords because of the large "US" lettering in the basket of the hand guard. This one has a golden honey patina color to the brass parts. The blade is full-length at 33-1/2 inches. The blade still retains some light but visible etching on each side of the blade. The front side of the blade has the military and floral designs that include a shield and flags. At the base of the back of the blade it has the remnants of the etched quality markik of "Eisenhauer". As you can see with this sword they made a quality piece for the well-to-do Union officer's to use. On the back side it has the "US" in the center that is flanked by floral and patriotic designs. On the handle of the sword it has had the original sharkskin grip intact as well as all of the brass wire. This is the high quality version that has the sharkskin grip instead of leather. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard. This is the scabbard style that is made of fine quality cast and engraved brass and metal. The scabbard still has the original drag, mounts and rings and throat are still present and accounted for. They have the the beautiful extra detail work on the brass. The top mount has the jeweler quality engraved inscription that reads "To Major John J. Cree / from / John F. Jennings". The records show that John J. Cree enlisted on December 1st 1862 as a major and was commissioned into Field & Staff, 168th Pennsylvania Infantry. He was mustered out on 25 July 1863 at Harrisburg, PA. The 168th PA saw service at Suffolk, VA, and New Bern, NC. The regiment participated in General Dix's campaign on the Peninsula from 27 June - 27 July 1863. Considering both Jennings and Cree served under General Dix, it is believed that Jennings presented the sword offered here to Cree when the regiment mustered out of service. This is a fine looking Civil War staff & field officer's sword & scabbard from 168th Pennsylvania.
