Very Nice Piece. The cut ruby glass items were very popular in both GAR and UCV as they could be customized on the spot as when they etched them it cut thru the ruby and you got the look as you see on yours. Thanks for sharing it with us.

In the Roster and Records of Iowa Soldiers in the War of the Rebellion, Davidson is listed in Company C. When reading the old
script writing, it's easy to misread some letters.

Davidson, James H.
Age 18. Residence Mount Pleasant, nativity Ohio. Enlisted Feb. 22, 1862. Mustered March 7, 1862. Promoted Eighth Corporal March 1, 1863; Seventh Corporal June 10, 1863. Taken prisoner Aug. 18, 1863, Grenada, Miss. Promoted Fifth Corporal Sept. 1, 1863; Third Corporal Feb. 9, 1864; Second Corporal Oct. 22, 1864. Mustered out March 6, 1865, expiration of term of service.

Here's Davidson's Find A Grave post-- https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/59107583/james-h-davidson

A real gem, in my opinion, is this article-- https://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-pilot/tn-dpt-me-0413-jim-carnett-column-20160411-story.html.

Thanks that article was very interesting! That story sounds very familiar, like I heard it before? It almost reminds me of a Ambrose Biersch story?! But it’s true and now I have his cup! Great information!
