More About this Item


Description

“Now is the time to show your patriotism and the chivalry of Kentuckians. Come one, come all.” Historic, original Confederate broadside seeking recruits for a company of Infantry to serve under the command of Colonel D. Howard Smith (5th Kentucky Cavalry) in the Confederate States Army. The listed recruiting officer Captain Gavin D. Hunt ultimately mustered into the 8th Kentucky Cavalry, undoubtedly with the men who answered the call of this broadside. The 8th Kentucky Cavalry rode under the command of legendary General John Hunt Morgan, participating in a series of battles before the majority of the regiment was captured at the Battle of Buffington Island. Captain Gavin D. Hunt was taken prisoner there and later confined at Camp Douglass in Illinois before escaping in late 1863. While all Confederate recruitment broadsides are scarce, this example explicitly references the “Confederate States Army,” a rare distinction. Museum-worthy addition to any collection. Measures ~12 x ~9 inches. Light soiling and folds, some loss at edges.
