CIVIL WAR POCKET WATCH PRESENTED TO JEREMIAH A. SULLIVAN, KILLED IN ACTION AT CABLETOWN, WEST VIRGINIA WHILE SERVING AS A MAJOR IN THE 1ST NEW YORK VETERAN CAVALRY. Jeremiah Sullivan mustered into the 13th New York Infantry out of Rochester, New York in April of 1861 and saw the ravages of war early on as a 2nd Lieutenant, 1st Lt. and then a Captain of Company I. The unit saw rough action at Bull Run, Yorktown, Gaines Mill, Savage's Station, Malvern Hill, 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. He mustered out at Rochester on May 14 of '63 and resumed his career in the 1st New York Veteran Volunteer Cavalry in November. He was killed at Cabletown in March of '64. This watch is in fine condition and working order. The only thing special about the watch is the person who recieved it as a gift around Christmas in 1861 was a hard fighter and eventually a Cavalry Officer who gave his last ounce of devotion on the battlefield. KIA items are the most desirable of artifacts. I prefer cavalry, of which this is one.
