A Civil War whiskey flask engraved on the front of the silver base, “Presented to Lt. J. F. Weare, 40 Reg. Ms. Inf., Sept. 1, 1862.” The pint-sized glass flask stands 7″ tall and has an oxidized silver screw cap and is seated in a removable 2.75″ tall silver sleeve that fits over the lower half. The front of the cup has been partially cleaned to bright metal and the glass flask is in fine condition with the glass bottom maker-marked “E. Wallis Jr., Philada.” John Fairfield Weare was 33 years old when he was commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant on September 1, 1862, into Co. C of the 40th Mass. Infantry. On September 7, 1864, he was promoted to captain, before being discharged on September 21, 1864, for wounds suffered at Cold Harbor, Virginia, on June 1, 1864.
