IT WILL TAKE A STRONG LIGHT, OR MAYBE EVEN A BLACK LIGHT TO BRING OUT THE WELL WORN PATINAED I.D. ON THE BACK OF THIS LOVELY HAND-FASHIONED HARNESS LEATHER INCASED MIRROR, BUT IT IS OBVIOUSLY THERE WITH ENOUGH SCRUTINY. IN ADDITION TO BE WOUNDED, PRIVATE RANSOM SAW ACTION AT EVERY MAJOR ACTION OF THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC: GAINES MILL, WHITE OAK SWAMP, MALVERN TAVERN, BULL RUN, ANTIETAM, FREDERICKSBURG, CHANCELLORSVILLE, GETTYSBURG, RAPPAHANNOCK STATION, WILDERNESS, SPOTSYLVANIA, COLD HARBOR, PETERSBURG, WELDON STATION, AND MORE. A GREAT PIECE OF PERSONAL HISTORY.
