Identified Thomas Griswold Cavalry Officers Saber
An exceptional and important example of a rare  "Thomas Griswold & Company of New Orleans" Cavalry Officer Saber identified to Captain George Pettigrew Bryan of the 2nd North Carolina Cavalry. Captain George Pettigrew Bryan's official Military records indicate that Bryan enlisted as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 2nd North Carolina Cavalry (19th State Troops) on September 30, 1861. During his service with the 2nd NC Cavalry, Bryan would be promoted to Lieutenant on July 1, 1862, rising to the rank of Captain on July 14th 1863. Bryan was wounded and captured in action, while engaged with Union troops at Upperville, Virginia. As a prisoner of war, Bryan would be exchanged at Point Lookout, Maryland and again returning to Confederate service. On August 16th 1864, Bryan would be killed in action while engaged with Union troops and would would be placed on the North Carolina  "Roll of Honor" for this service during the American Civil War. Bryans middle name was "Pettigrew" being related to North Carolina's "General James Johnson Pettigrew," Pettigrew was promoted to brigadier general by President Jefferson Davis. Bryan's sister was married to General Bryan Grimes (4th North Carolina Infantry Regiment, who fought in nearly all of the major battles of the Eastern Theater of the war). Provenance: This exceptional conditional Cavalry Officers Saber was obtained from a direct descendant of Captain Bryan in 1992 (on his mothers side) at the Carolina Antique Gun Show, Raleigh, North Carolina. Sword Manufacture History:  In August 1861, the partnership of Hyde & Goodrich was dissolved by the the withdrawal of A. L. Hyde and the firm continued as Thomas, Griswold  & Co. at the corner of Canal and Royal Streets, New Orleans. Thomas Griswold & Company manufactured and sold many types of war supplies, but are mainly known for their wide variety of Swords, Sabres and Cutlasses. Shortly after 1861, Thomas Griswold printed a "Lancers Manual" advertising on the back page, of which was devoted to advertising that Thomas Griswold & Co. were "Importers of Guns, Pistols, Bowie-Knives, Caps and Cartridges and Enfield Rifles. Manufactures Cavalry and Artillery Sabres and Field Officers Swords and Lances."  It is considered "Thomas Griswold of New Orleans" manufactured some of the finest quality swords for the South. Featured here, is one such example, with firm address clearly stamped : THOMAS GRISWOLD & Co. over NEW-ORLEANS. This sword survives in a "exceptional perfect state" of original preservation with original "Officers Knot" still present. This saber is one of the finest condition "identified" Cavalry Officers Sabers known to exist. It is a magnificent example of a pure Confederate battle weapon, whose original owners name resides on the North Carolina Civil War "Roll of Honor".
