Confederate Wooden canteen identified to Thomas Redd who served in Company D of the 16th Alabama Infantry. On one side is a carved eagle and soldiers name with the regiment.

Traces of gold paint remain around the rim bands quite possible from display in a GAR post. The 16th Alabama fought in Western at Shiloh, Chickamauga, Franklin and actions around Atlanta. Thomas Redd was born in Conecuh, Alabama in 1840 and moved to Calhoun County, Florida after the war. He died in 1924 and is buried in Blountstown, Florida.
