Provenance The sideboard is said to have been on the Confederate blockade runner, the CSS Advance. The sideboard was taken from the vessel at the fall of Fort Fisher and then purchased by the donor's father. The donor's father gave the sideboard to Judge Staples, who left it in turn to the donor in 1897.
