Letter: Agrees with Tamara
Johnny Roemisch has written in to update his previous speculation about the mystery in the historic display at the Trabue Russell House. After exhaustively comparing our artifact with exhibits at Harvard's Countway Library, Johnny is confident that Tamara Andrew is correct that the item is in fact a field medical kit.
A similar kit in Harvard's collection is a Civil War era "pocket surgery kit," containing instruments made by the George Tiemann & Co. of New York.
Harvard's Countway Library is open to Harvard ID holders only, while the Trabue Russell House's current exhibit is open to everyone from 1-3pmCT on each of the following Saturdays and Sundays: April 2nd and 3rd, and on the weekend of April 9th and 10th, 2022. For details, call the City of Columbia at 270-384-2501.
