More About this Item

From the Estate of Charles C. Hendricks, Greensboro, NC. A letter from the executor of the Hendricks Estate writes, in part: "The initials scratched on the canteen are JHD which Mr. Hendricks said were those of his maternal grandfather, James Henry Davis who lived in the vicinity of Center Friends Meeting and is buried there...I have no knowledge of the role James Henry Davis played in the Civil War except that he was young at that time and grew up in a Quaker community which would make his involvement especially significant..." A copy of this letter will be included with the canteen.
7 3/8 in. diameter.
