PAINTED UNION MILITARY SNARE DRUM A fine painted Union Civil War military snare drum, 16.5 in. diameter, 13.75 in. tall, with what appear to be original cords and leather tabs. The body of the drum displays a Union eagle with shield at front, outstretched wings, and grasping an olive branch and arrowns in its talons. It is surmounted by the motto: "E PLURIBUS UNUM', sun rays, and stars. The original paint is about 90% intact. The top skin remains intact, while the bottom skin has one small tear. All fittings, ties, etc. are present and intact. A small leather harness remains wrapped around the width of the drum, though it appears not to be original to the piece. The paper maker's label within the instrument indicates it was manufactured by C & F Soistmann of Philadelphia. Overall a very good, displayable example.
