This rare type of pepper-box could have been carried during the U.S. Civil war era. The percussion pepper-box was invented around the 1830s and was originally intended for civilian use, but military officers often made private purchases for their own use. James Ewell Brown “Jeb” Stuart (1833-1864) was a U. S. Army officer and later a Major General and cavalry commander for the Confederate States of America during the U.S. Civil War (1861-65). In 1857 he was shot in the chest at point blank range with a pepper-box by a Cheyenne warrior, Stuart survived probably due rumor has it, to a very weak powder charge. Brass trigger guard and frame, steel hammer and plain wooden grips. 3 inch brass barrels. The side-plate engraved "J. ENG. h" (Believed to be Johan Engholm).
