WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO IDENTIFY CIVIL WAR ANTIQUES?
buglecgj.gif - 1790 BytesCivil War antiques offer us a window into our Nation’s past. They can show us the evolution of military clothing, accoutrements, as well as weaponry of the time. It is during the Civil War that the first reaping rifle was introduced as well as the first wide spread usage of rubberized items also known as gutta percha.
buglecgj.gif - 1891 BytesKnowing what an item is will also tell us how it was used, where it was made, when it was made and most importantly who made it. This information is much more illusive however when it comes to Confederate items. These items were most of the time made very quickly and made from surplus parts of previous wars as well as from "battlefield pickups." The Confederates simply did not have the vast arsenals as did the Union and made due with what they could find.

SO, WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE A CIVIL WAR ITEM?
