In 1862, Connecticut formed two militia artillery regiments, the 1st and 2nd mustered January 2 and July 25. Both saw extensive action including the Battle of Cold Harbor for the 2nd and both suffered heavy casualties. This an 1840 pattern artillery sword of the Connecticut militia with a 32 ¾” blade marked CONN 1862 with the Ames maker’s mark opposite (weak as typical). The hilt is plated as made and marked B 20, Company B, with 51 to the pommel. Wire-wrapped leather-covered grip a little dry. The blade retains faded blue mostly smooth with a little raised oxidation at the forte and minor pitting to the point. The plating and blue would have been quite dazzling originally. Rare and historical example in untouched condition.
