US Civil War Era Union Army Military Combat Drum. The dimensions are 16 3/4" in diameter by 14" tall. The maker that can be read thru the weep hole reads "Robert W. Warren". There is a small hand written label below that we cannot read. The heads show use and wear. The top one reads in hand written ink "RWW Geneva". The drum has the standard brass tacks in place.
