Here is a fantastic grouping of items that belonged to Sgt W Floyd of the 2nd Georgia Cavalry. The 9th plate tintype shows him wearing a regulation early war Georgia Cavalry Uniform and holding an 1841 Colt Root Revolver. The 2nd Ga Cav was part of Confederate General Joe Wheeler's Cavalry as well as General Nathan B Forrest Cavalry Corp.
Beside the rare tintype, there is a Wheeler Cavalry Corp Association badge & ribbon which was part of the United Confederate Veterans Association. It also contains his UDC Southern Cross of Honor and a CNC (Commander in Chief) hat badge. An interesting side bar to the grouping is Miss Elizabeth F Crawford of Dallas Tx. Miss Crawford was the daughter of C E Crawford of the 27th Louisiana Infantry. She was not only a very well known singer and music teacher but she was also very active in the Maids of the UCV and was present at many UCV Reunions as a sponsor and Maid of Honor.In 1916 she sent the Wheeler Cavalry Association ribbon in the Whitehead & Hoag envelope to Col John S Prather who was head of the Wheeler Cavalry Association and was also one of General Joe Wheeler's Brigade commanders. Why she sent the Wheeler ribbon to Col John S Prather in 1916 is a mystery that is lost to time. Very interesting group of rare Confederate items with a GREAT History. I have many other photos and only being able to post 12 does not do this collection justice. Just drop me a note and I will send you many other photos. All of Floyd's service records as well as all the research and info on Miss Crawford is also included.
