British Map Powder Horn. Ca. 1814; scrimshaw etching date unknown.  Map etching shows British corps and regiments in front of "Rodrigue's Canal" and the inscription "XCV G Rex" of the 95th Rifle Regiment.

Yet even as a later commemoration piece, this powder horn is a curious and beautiful artifact. In the William C. Cook War of 1812 in the South Collection, acc. no. 2002-36-L.
