Full & Quarter Seconds/40 Ruby Jewels/ Ben Roach to T.P. Leathers",outer case engraved with trotter horse racing and duck hunting scenes; the crown set with mine-cut diamond, dial set with dual-time dials; the outer ring with sweep second hand, leather fob, case dia. 2 1/2 in Provenance: Descended in the Leathers family. The "Ben Roach" who presented this watch was almost certainly Benjamin Roach (1812-1986), a wealthy planter and merchant in Carrollton, Mississippi.

Lee in 1870, immortalized in the iconic Currier & Ives print.
