Biography: William G. Rankin of Pennsylvania first appeared in the United States Military Records on May 14, 1861, when he was appointed as Captain of the 13th Infantry Regiment, commanded by General William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891) as colonel of the regiment and served in Headquarters, Military Division of Mississippi. While Rankin officially remained in the position of Captain, he was honored on March 13, 1865 for “faithful service during the war,” and received two Brevetted promotions, including Brevet Major and Brevet Lieutenant Colonel, before the war’s end. He was transferred to the 31st Infantry Regiment in September 1866 and then back to the 13th Infantry Regiment in July 1869. During his post-war years, Rankin was once again Brevetted as a full Colonel in the U.S. Army under Sherman’s command during the American-Indian Wars. In 1866, he founded and commanded Fort Buford in the Dakota Territory along the Oregon Trail. During the construction period, the fort was attacked by elements of the Sioux Nation. As Rankin and the other members of his regiment were isolated and unable to send out mail or telegrams to report the garrison’s status, newspapers inadvertently created the story of the “Fort Buford Massacre” in which the entire garrison, including Rankin’s wife, was believed to have been massacred. Ultimately, this story was proved to be false due to Rankin’s eventual correspondence to the war department. Rankin left the service due to re-organization of the Amry and was discharged in December 1870, under Section 3 of the Act approved on July 15, 1870.

669 Lot 669: Civil War ID'd Officer Field Desk made from Watervliet Cartridge Box, Washington Arsenal Civil War ID'd Officer Field Desk made from Watervliet Cartridge Box, Washington Arsenal Lot 669: Civil War ID'd Officer Field Desk made from Watervliet Cartridge Box, Washington Arsenal

Civil War Union field desk repurposed from a Watervliet cartridge crate, property of Lieutenant Colonel George Douglas Ramsay of the Washington Arsenal, DC. Composed of assembled wood painted and stamped with inscriptions FROM WATERVLIET ARSENAL on back side, CARTRIDGE / MUSKET OR RIFLE / CAL 57 on each side, and LIEUT COL, G, D, RAMSAY / WASHINGTON ARSENAL, / DC on front. Wooden bar fixed across opening made of repurposed Union leather knapsack straps, with an additional piece of leather housed in an envelope adhered to interior. 8" H x 16 1/2" W x 12" D. Circa 1863. Note: Brigadier General George Douglas Ramsay was born in Dumfries, VA in 1802. He entered the Military Academy at the age of 12, graduating in 1820. In 1831, he was promoted to captain, where he served for 26 years commanding several arsenals in the Mexican War. He later served as Chief Ordnance Office of the Army commanded by Major General Zachary Taylor. At the onset of the Civil War, he was assigned to serve on the Ordnance Board, was made a Major in 1861, and a Lieutenant Colonel in 1863. Later that year, he was promoted to Brigadier General and Chief of Ordnance and served in command of Washington Arsenal until 1870, a post which he retired from at the age of 62. He died in 1882 at the age of 80. (Courtesy of the University of Chicago Cullum's Register). The Watervliet Arsenal was founded in 1813 to support the War of 1812 and is the oldest continually active arsenal in the United States. The equally historic Washington Arsenal can trace its beginnings to a military reservation established in 1791. Although destroyed in the war of 1812, it was rebuilt starting in 1815 and is still in use today under the name Fort Lesley J. McNair. By the start of the Civil War, the arsenal had used one of the first steam presses, developed the first automatic machine for manufacturing percussive caps, and experimented with the Hale Rocket. A large civilian workforce manufactured ammunition at the arsenal, including a number of women, mostly from the lower classes including many Irish immigrants. On June 17, 1864, fireworks left in the sun ignited, killing 21 women, many of whom burned to death in flammable hoop skirts. The War Department paid for their funerals, and President Lincoln attended the funeral procession. Later, the conspirators accused of assassinating Lincoln were imprisoned on the grounds of the arsenal. After being tried by a military commission and found guilty, four were hanged on the premises (including Mary Surratt, the first woman ever executed under federal orders).
