The above photos are of a canteen that belonged to a member of the 7th Mississippi Infantry, Private Newton J. Osborn. The carving of his name and unit on the canteen reflects his original enrollment in the 1st Mississippi. At this time further research is being done on Pvt. Osborn and a page dedicated to him and the story of this canteen will be added to the website. Thanks go to Gordon L. Jones, Vice President of Exhibitions and Collections of the Atlanta History Center, (130 West Paces Ferry Road NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30305) for allowing us to post this to our website.
