While doing some research at the local library here in Fairfax, VA I came across a book called The Civil War Reeactors’ Encyclopedia by William C. Davis. In it Mr. Davis states, while writing about CS canteens, “A significant quantity of English wood canteens was imported”.
Intrigued, I have spent many hours at the library trying to find out more, to no avail. Understanding that the local public library may not be the ideal place to find such information, I thought I’d post a thread here.
Does anyone have any information on English imported canteens, wooden or otherwise?
