This horn has the color and patina you love to find. It just came out of the woods up in Maine and is new to the collecting fraternity. The only thing I'm not sure of is the name of the Fort as it's difficult to make out but I think it's Stowe. The engraving depicts a Patriot (Colhoun) shooting a Indian who is trying to Tomahawk him. There's a partial name between and above the Indian and Colhoun. What's left of the name is Cornpl…….. I imagine that is Seneca Chief Cornplanter (Garganwahgah) who was a pretty bad character. On the back is engraved a woman who I imagine he's saving from the Indian. The horn is 9 1/2" overall and is in really fine shape with only a very minor crack in front of the Indians leg. Alexander Colhoun was a Minuteman and served in the 14th Regt. Albany County Militia. He participated in the Battle of Saratoga, Ft. Edwards, Sandy Hill, Ft. George and Bennington. Some of the bloodiest Indian fighting of the Rev.War took place in upstate New York where he served. A really great horn at a reasonable price.
