Pair of carved bone items made by Union prisoner Levi A. Youmans, Co. A, 184th N.Y. Infantry, while held a prisoner following his capture at Cedar Creek. Youmans, who had enlisted only two months before his capture, carved a one-inch long heart from a piece of white bone, and also carved a delicate white bone ring with a small red cross on a flat surface. Both items were likely sent home to his wife or mother for safekeeping. A small paper note was included with these items, reading in full: "Carved out of bone by Levi Youmans while a prisoner of the South in Civil War. Aunt Mary gave them to us. Aug. 1946" Very good.
