A Civil War data base search identifies only one match: Private Edward A. Diggs: Iowa 45th Infantry enlisted 5/9/1864.

    The 45th Regiment Iowa Volunteer Infantry was an infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. It was among scores of regiments that were raised in the summer of 1864 as Hundred Days Men, an effort to augment existing manpower for an all-out push to end the war within 100 days. The 45th Iowa Infantry was organized at Keokuk, Iowa, and mustered in for one hundred days of Federal service on May 25, 1864, as part of a plan to raise short-term regiments for service as rear area garrison duty to release veteran troops for Sherman's Atlanta Campaign. The 45th Iowa garrisoned strategic points on the Memphis & Charleston Railroad. The regiment was mustered out at Keokuk on September 15, 1864. Though Private Diggs and the 45th Iowa had a short history, it is extremely rare to find an identified item to an Iowa soldier. $550.00

    CN04.  UCV (UNITED CONFEDERATE VETERANS) CANTEEN - ARIZONA MADE: I do not normally purchase UCV or GAR items, but this was very unique and tied to the state of Arizona, and being that my site is located in Arizona it just make sense to bring this back to the state where it was made.  Hopefully, there is a collector here in Arizona that would like it.  It is a United Confederate Veteran (UCV) canteen made for a Confederate reunion.  It is a miniature copy of a Confederate tin canteen, measure 4" x 4" with a tin screw top, with a linen sling.  Perfect for whiskey or tequila.  On the front you can see the faint outline of the letters "UCV" and on the back you can see the makers information: "O K" "Angel Contreras" "Wickenburg." The 1880 US Federal Census records shows Angel Contreras listed as a Tinsmith, and Wickenburg is a town in Arizona just west of Phoenix.  He most likely made this canteen for one of the few Confederate reunions held in Arizona.  Arizona play a small part in the Civil War, but after the war many veterans ended up in the state because of the gold, silver & copper mines.  The canteen is in outstanding condition! Here is a unique piece of American history tied to both the Civil War and the state of Arizona.  $395.00
