Civil War Cartridge Box, Relic, Identified, 9th Maine:
This is a great identified cartridge box that belonged to Private John A. Chadwick of the 9th Maine Infantry. He enlisted in September of 1861. The 9th Maine was a veteran unit (182 k/w) that fought alongside of the Colored 54th Massachusetts at Fort Wagner S.C. as portrayed in the movie "GLORY." The 9th charged Fort Wagner on 7/18/63 with the 54th Ma as they were in the same Brigade.(Gen. George Strong - killed) Private Chadwick was wounded fighting at Fort Wagner. He then went on to Cold Harbor, the Crater, Petersburg Campaign, and was wounded again in the left leg at Weldon R.R. Va. on 8/16/64 and had his leg amputated. The box is in good condition with obvious wear. See photos for condition. Private Chadwick cut away the roller buckles and shoulder strap so he could wear the box on his belt. A nice CDV of Private Chadwick comes with the box, along with a photo copy of an application for an artificial leg. The US box plate is a Reproduction as the original VMM plate (Volunteer Maine Militia) was sold separately by Nick.. The VMM plates are so rare it would have nearly doubled the price of this box. Purchased from Nick Periut of Army of Tennessee Relics. Just a great piece of history from a Maine soldier.
