This flask was recovered from the Fort Scott National Historic Site during excavations conducted there between 1968 through 1972 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. The flask was recovered from the area of the Post Headquarters and Ordinance Stores. When Fort Scott was built it was on the western military frontier, but is now located within the city limits of Fort Scott. The fort saw limited military use into the 1870s, and thereafter for non-military uses. This aqua colored flask was manufactured by the Louisville Kentucky Glass Works, who were in operation from 1873 to 1890.

Date: 1873-1890
