1864 American (Pennsylvania) Side drum at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "This side drum from the 1860s bears a stenciled eagle design that was typical of the thousands of instruments produced for use by the Union army during the Civil War. The eagle is painted on a blue field, which means it was used in the Infantry, and a banner held in the eagle's beak bears the words REG: U.S. INFANTRY."
