On April 1861 the 21st Ohio Volunteer Infantry was organized by men from Hancock, Putnam, Ottawa, Wood, Sandusky & DeFiance counties. It was a three-month regiment and upon mustering out in Columbus on August 12, 1861, the 21st OVI reorganized at Camp Vance in Findlay, Ohio and re-enlisted for three-years service on Sept. 19, 1861. The 21st OVI was part of the Tennessee and the Andrew's Raid and starting in June of 1863 they took part in the Tullahoma & Chickamauga Campaigns. On Sept. 19 they arrived at the area of Chickamauga Creek and fully engaged in the battle under the command of Lt. Colonel D.M. Stoughton and occupied the area known as Snodgrass Hill. At the end of battle on the 20th of Sept. they had expended all of their ammunition 43,550 rounds total and retired to the rear of the ridge and a runner was sent to locate the ordnance train. In the six hours of fighting, the 21st OVI numbering approximately 540 men, lost 265 killed, wounded or captured. The 21st OVI took part in the Battle of Chattanooga and when the three-year enlistment period expired most of the men re-enlisted for the duration of the war in the Atlanta Campaign under William T. Sherman marching through Georgia and arriving at the coast at the end of the year. In 1865 the 21st took part in the Carolinas Campaign, including the Battle of Bentonville. Following Surrender of the opposing Confederate Army at Bennett Place in April they marched to Washington D.C. and took part in the Grand Review of the Armies and were later discharged and paid on July 28, 1865 when the 21st OVI mustered out in Louisville, Kentucky. Manufactured 1861 having the rare fluted cylinder with the correct patent date marking which reads "PATENTED SEPT. 10 in 1860" in the fluted valley between two chambers.

In late 1859 with the help of J.H. Adams Jr. of Washington, D.C. the Viceroy of Egypt placed an order for 600 Sharps Model 1859 rifle-muskets. The serial numbers for these rifles are in the 3600 to 4000 range. Sharps had multiple problems during this time period from inferior and limited supplies to a steam boiler failure and the need for new equipment to bore the 36" barrels, but by February of 1861 all the rifles were completed and inspected by US Government Inspectors. By April of 1861 payment for the contract rifles still had not been received so Palmer offered the rifles to the U.S. Ordnance Department. On April 17th J.R. Hawley of Hartford, Connecticut a Captain of Rifle Company A went to the Sharps factory and purchased 90 rifles for his company and later that same week the remaining 510 rifles were purchased by the State of Connecticut and issued to the 1st, 2nd and 4th Infantry Regiments. The walnut full length stock with straight grip butt stock shows only the slightest amount of very light handling throughout with the most noticeable a small loss just behind center barrel band left side top and under frame right side. All patent markings on receiver frame are very crisp with an "H" sub inspection mark right side of lever lock. The case hardened components have a light and dark grey/brown mottled patina throughout with a few scattered tool marks on bolster edges. The bore has shine with very nice rifling and the barrel has a thinning blued finish with some scattered tool marks mostly noticeable around barrel bands. A fixed front sight with folding adjustable rear graduated to 8 with the barrel being marked "SHARPS RIFLE/MANUFG. CO/HARTFORD CONN" forward of the rear sight and "NEW MODEL 1859" rearward of it. The sight base has the Lawrence patent on the base. The butt plate and patchbox are case hardened both showing traces of coloring with some tool marks present on butt plate and some light freckling in a few areas on box. Standard Sharps sling swivels mounted bottom of middle barrel band as well as inletted in bottom of butt stock. Very nice example of an "Egyptian Contract" Sharps 1859 rifle.
