At their regular monthly meeting on August 15, the Friends of Monterey Pass, Inc. purchased a frock coat and associated artifacts worn by Captain William P. Wilken, an officer in the 1st West Virginia Cavalry, who fought at the Battle of Monterey Pass.
The Board was approached by Bill Carter who had purchased the coat and other items from a collector in Berlin, Germany, several years ago with an offer to purchase the artifacts. Mr. Carter has been very active with both the FMPB, Inc. and the One Mountain Foundation but will be moving out of the area within the coming weeks and felt that these artifacts which are a significant piece of local history belonged here. Mr. Carter offered the FMPB, Inc. the opportunity to purchase the artifacts, at no profit to him, for $9,000. The FMPB, Inc. accepted the offer which included documentation verifying the authenticity of the artifacts and an appraisal indicating the value to be much higher than Mr. Carter’s selling price.
In addition to the frock coat, this purchase also included a civilian photo of Wilken and his wife, a family bible published in 1851, a civilian CDV, and his obituary.
