“THIS” Waltham ‘William Ellery’ 1863 Civil War Pocket Watch was owned by Sgt. Salathiel Benjamin Rush. It was purchased in Nashville, Tennessee for $13.00 in March of 1864. Salathiel had “Peter”, his father’s name engraved in the case. Salathiel attached his pre-owned watch fob to this watch.
Veteran Re-enlistee, Salathiel B. Rush, Sgt. “F” Co., 63rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, carried this watch in the “Atlanta Campaign” from March of 1864, and on through many battles to the “Advance and Occupation of Raleigh” April 10-14, of 1865. Salathiel personally accompanied General Sherman (Uncle Billy) to “Bennett’s House” April 26, 1865, where at the farm home of James Bennett, Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston surrendered 89,270 Confederate soldiers to Union General William T. Sherman. This was the largest group, either side, to surrender during the Civil War.
The 63rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry was in the “March to Washington, D.C.” via Richmond, Virginia April 29-May 20, and marched in the “Grand Review” the 2nd day, May 24th. The 63rd was moved to Louisville, Kentucky June 5th, and saw duty there until July 8, 1865. Salathiel’s discharge papers state: Mustered out July 8, 1865.
