This identified canteen was shown on page 30 of my book "Civil War Canteens." It was engraved with the name J. B. McCain of Co. I, 30th Alabama Volunteer Infantry. McCain enlisted as a private and was captured at Champion's Hill, Mississippi, in May of 1863. He was later paroled. The canteen is a typical CS wood drum canteen; it measures 7 1/8" x 2 1/4" with iron bands and sling loops. The short sturdy sling is made of linen sewn to a length of stirrup strap with a small brass roller buckle. The spout is missing. Overall condition is excellent. McCain was not the best at spelling. His first initial is carved backwards on the canteen's face. Very nice example with good provenance.
