Silas Byrd, 10th VA Cavalry Handkerchief

Byrd 10th VA Cavalry Handkerchief

We are excited to offer the next handkerchief in our line of mid-19th Century reproduction handkerchiefs.  This one is the Silas Byrd handkerchief, and he served with Company K of the 10th Virginia Cavalry.  It measures 18x24 and is cotton.  The original is in the possession of his family in Virginia and permission was given by them to reproduce this handkerchief.  It is a stunning pattern and unlike anything we have done previously, as you can see.  This hanky was carried by Byrd during his service with the 10th Virginia Cavalry, and his enlistment records show he served from May 1862 at least through November of 1863, and was present with the regiment at the Seven Days, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Brandy Station, Upperville, Gettysburg, and Bristoe.  He was subsequently discharged due to disability.   This is a great piece of history and unique in so many ways!

    the design on this handkerchief is different from the symetrical designs on most other CW handkerchiefs. It is unique. The colors are bright and vibrant. I really like it. erth
