A battle carried M1850 Staff & Field Officer sword identified to Capt. Thomas Manning Jackson of the 3rd New Hampshire Infantry. Capt. Jackson's sword is in outstanding condition for a carried piece. The manufacturer is "Schuyler, Hartley, & Graham, New York" with a beautiful frosted blade exhibiting the rare "Liberty Cap" on both sides of the blade. Etched in the blade are the words "Stand by the Union" separated by Battle Flags between the words. The sword is tight and has all its original hardware including wire wrap on grip. There is evidence of some gilt popping through on the hilt. The scabbard shows some battle wear on the opposite side of the drag but does not detract from the sword. The period inscription is on the top mount of the scabbard and reads "Presented to Thomas M. Jackson by the Non Com Officers of 3rd N.H. Infy Regt. July, 1863." Captain Jackson was wounded severely at the Battle of Fort Wagner, South Carolina. Interestingly, he was wounded the same day as the 54th Massachusetts charge on the garrison. His wounds were enough to have him discharged from duty shortly thereafter. A Civil War period CDV also accompanies the sword. The photograph is like finding a "needle in a haystack" but was lucky enough to come across. Provided below is Captain Jackson's Civil War history. This identified sword would be a nice addition for the identified sword collector or New Hampshire collector.
