Just scored this amazing trunk. It's named to Brigadier General David Johnston Craigie who fought in the Civil War. Was taken prisoner at Shiloh and was taken to Leavenworth. In 1903 he was made Brigadier General and died on 1913. This guy has an extensive history and is buried at Arlington with his wife. One of his swords sold at auction a few years back. I appreciate any comments or concerns you might have. 70622165_2898782723483484_6840872550126321664_o.jpg
