William Turner, USN

In my Saw the Elephant Civil War blog today, I wrote about the auction of "Cotton" Reynolds' huge Civil War collection in August of this year.  One of the items was the footlocker of Captain William Turner, USN. which was loaded with items.  It went for $4,700.

I have been unable to find any information on the man's service, but it was bought by Mayo Cameron who plans to exhibit it in his museum in North Carolina.

There is a Cameron Art Museum located in Wilmington, so perhaps that is its destination.
