Wooden Confederate canteen with painted scene of a Confederate flag displayed over a headstone marked "Unknown" and a footstone marked "C.S.A." Well executed with a faded gilt painted border. The scene painted on this canteen is taken from the central vignette of the Confederate Note Memorial chromolithograph. The canteen is accompanied by copies of Civil War letters possibly associated with Charles E. Moore. Moore is referenced in the book, "The Confederate Image: Prints of the Lost Cause" Holzer & Boritt, p. 106. The detailed painting of the canteen accompanied with the Civil War letter copies relating to the Moore family suggests the canteen may have been decorated by Charles Moore and belonged to him. 7 1/4" diameter. 19th century.
