About Gen. Meade's Spurs-- Part 3: Spurs and a Pistol
The Great Central Fair raised $1 million for the United States Sanitary Commission.
Many of General Meade's personal items have been donated or sold by family members in the 1990s, including the sword, uniforms, a cased and engraved Remington New-Model Revolver (now at the Autry Museum) and other artifacts.
I'll be writing about the pistol later this week as well. The auction story has definitely branched out.
The spurs were in the estate of the late George Gordon Meade Easby (Meade's grandson) until a few years ago.
