Fantastic ensemble of identified artefacts from one of Connecticut's most decorated Civil War veterans, James Bolles Coit of the 14th Regiment, Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. Coit, a privileged son from Norwich, CT, enlisted as a private in the Union Army on May 7, 1861 and rose through the ranks to attain a brevet Brigadier General's commission before the end of the war. During the war, Coit was wounded in combat six different times and suffered the loss of his right arm.
