.36 cal., s/n 105704, BP revolver, brl length 7.5", single-action percussion, good condition, Manufactured 1861 and presented to Col. Charles Carroll Marsh. C. Carroll Marsh was a Union Army officer during the American Civil War. He served with distinction early in the war at Battles of Fredericktown, Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, Shiloh and Corinth where he commanded the 20th Illinois Infantry Regiment. He joined Ulysses S. Grant's expedition to Fort Henry and later publicly professed his confidence in General Grand when he and others presented Grant with an ivory handled sword. He later transferred to command the 1st Brigade in John A. Logan's 3rd Division of the XVII Corps in the opening stages of Grant's First Vicksburg campaign. Colonel Marsh resigned on April 22, 1863. The revolver is engraved on the right side barrel flat "Col. C. C. Marsh" with full serial number present on barrel, cylinder, frame, trigger guard and back strap. The last four digits "5704" are present on the loading lever and cylinder pin with the wedge not being numbered to the revolver. The cylinder retains the naval engagement scene showing scattered tool marks with a dark gray mottled patina. The top barrel flat is marked "--ADDRESS COL. SAML COLT NEW-YORK U. S. AMERICA--" in a single line with left side of frame marked "COLTS/PATENT' in two lines. The brass back strap and trigger guard show assorted tool marks with the walnut grip standing slightly proud having lines grooved either side with heavy indentations underside of butt. All metal surfaces show a dark mottled patina with freckling and pitting present on top of blast shield and hammer. Brass post front sight. Bore is slightly dark showing rifling and pitting. This is a very historic Civil War Colt Navy revolver that was in some very historic battles of the war. Comes with a binder containing C. C. Marsh promotions, muster roll and 20th IL Infantry Regiment Assignments.
