#5188 - UNIQUE DISPLAY FOR A DEAD COMRAD
This is a most unique "display" that was created in 1908 as a memorial for a deceased comrad. When Comm. Michael Reilly died an acquaintance of his wrote some facts down about his Civil War service and his military burial upon a piece of paper. The paper was then carefully rolled up and slid down into a brass rifle casing. There is also a spiral of facts pasted to the outside of the casing! Then, it all was wrapped in tissue paper with a red ribbon. And, almost 100 years later, this unusual "display" of a brass bullet casing has kept the information about a Civil War Naval Veteran safe through time!
