The Surrender Revolver of Jefferson Davis

Jefferson Davis’ gun that he surrendered to Union troops on May 10, 1865 marks the end of a war that kept America from being forever changed and split into two different countries. It effectively turned the page on that bloodiest chapter in American history. Save for the Deringer used to assassinate Lincoln, what firearm could hold the significance, the sheer historic importance of Jefferson Davis’ surrender revolver.

Even after more than a century, it brings with it an abundance of provenance, documentation, corroborating evidence, and an unbroken chain of ownership.

It is a historic American artifact of the highest order, and it’s only available at Rock Island Auction Company.
