This is an early war issue Union 69 cal. cartridge box. A family had brought this and another 58 cal. cartridge box to the Civil War Show in Louisville Ky. Both were picked up off of the Perryville Ky battlefield, by the family’s GGGrandfather, 3 years after the battle there. They have been passed down through the family all of these years, and now are in my collection. They are not in perfect shape at all, but the history of them is priceless. I will be posting pictures of the 58 cal. box also.
