1808 CARTRIDGE BOX SLING
ONLY $9.95 !


  What a great deal for the CS soldier or the pre-war militiaman. These are perfect for the war of 1812 or The first Texas war for independence (Mexican War). They were used by Militias nation wide right up to and including the The War for Southern Independence.

  Our black leather 1808 cartridge box slings are on sale for only $9.95! That's crazy but we are overstocked and they have to go. Fit's any normal cartrige box .58 or .69 cal.
  So what's the big difference between these and the 1855 model cartridge box slings? Well the ends are cut just a little different and they are made from two pieces of leather sewn together at the halfway point. This was a common practice when leather is in short supply.
  Anyway you are going to get a great deal on a first rate black leather cartridge box sling. Buy now or miss out, they will not last long.

.69 CALIBER CARTRIDGE BOX

  Here is what a lot of us have been waiting for. A great repro of a standard pre war .69 cal. cartridge box. At the start of the war this was the predominate cartridge box north or south as there were more .69 cal. weapons in service than .58 cal. Almost 75% of all confederate cartridge boxes are copied from this pattern including the "Bivens Bros." Shelbyville Armory cartridge box. (some of the Bivens descendants still live here) There is little or no difference between most of them. These boxes measures 7 1/2" wide and 6 1/2" tall (that's the box. not the flap) and the tins are included. Available in black leather only.

BINOCULARS

  This is an excellent pair of binoculars. The focus adjustment works free and easily. One of the shades works freely but the other is just a little stiff. It will free up with use as it has greatly improved in the few minutes that I have been working with them. The optics are very good, exceptionally clear. About 2X if I had to guess. With the shades exstended these binoculars measure 6 inches long. There is one very small "dent" that is not easily noticable. So small I can't get a good photo of it.

BINOCULARS $69.95 BUY NOW!



COIN BUTTONS

  Here are 9 coin buttons. The larger are the size of a dime and the smaller are the size of a shirt button. They are dug and all have a very sound and usable shank. You can use them just as they are or if you like you can toss them into your tumbler with a light abrassive and shine them right up. That's up to you. If you want one of them or any part I will sell them for $3.95 each. The photo shows them a little larger than they actually are.

9 COIN BUTTONS $29.95 BUY NOW!



CREAM CAN

  This period correct cream can holds over a quart but not quite 2. It is made of tin with a smooth varnish finish. A common practice for the time period. It has soldered joints all of which are tight. I has some small dents about it but that's what you would expect for a piece this old. The cap fits snuggly but still is removed with little effort. It won't "pop off" unexpectedly.
  Now for the bad news, it has 3 little pin holes in the bottom. You can't carry cream in it. But - - - you can carry any type of dry goods you like, beans, rice, etc. You can even slip a large ziplock bag into it and fill it with just about anything including flour or meal. I think this would be a typical item that a soldier out foraging would bring back to camp.

CREAM CAN $14.95 BUY NOW!



DUTCH OVEN W LID, 6 QUART

  This is a brand new Dutch Oven, with a 6 qt. capacity. Just right for the camp site or the home hearth. Not too heavy but large enough to supply the family/mess with a good size serving of any single dish meal. Once you have mastered cooking with a dutch oven you will not want to cook in anything else.

CONFEDERATE VETERAN MAGAZINE

  I love to sit and read these old issues of C.V.M. Everything from the stories the veterans tell which give their view of a particular battle or skirmish in which they participated to the politics of the day and yes I even the ads are interesting. How could you not love an ad for the Tennessee Biscuit Co. and their jingle, "Forget the rest eat the best!" I could be a little biased, the founder of the mag. was a local boy who served in the same company as one of my Grandfathers. Even with that said I just don't see how anyone could pick up one of these and not find something interesting, sometimes even extraordinary.
  I have found books advertised in the CVM that I did not know existed. Reviews of books and veterans "calling out" the authors when they have printed something incorrectly. Each one is a wealth of knowledge. So many aspects of the war are covered that there is no way I can list them all in the descriptions below. Don't forget the "Last Roll Call", remembering the vets who have passed from month to month.

CONFEDERATE VETERAN MAG. APRIL, 1917

  This issue is in very good condition. This is vol. 25, no. 4. Gen. Albert Sydney Johnston is on the cover.
  If you are a "dyed in the wool" Southron like I am you will enjoy, (that may be the wrong word, Lament the truth might be better) the article entitled, "Ideals of the Old South".
  There is another very good article, "Imbodens Dash Into Charleston." and another lengthy article entitled "The Confederate Navy".

CONFEDERATE VETERAN MAG. JULY, 1917

  This issue is in very good condition. This is vol. 25, no. 7. The Poem "Equality - Liberty - Fraternity" is on the cover.
  If you are a navy man there is a very interesting article entitled, "A Wartime Derelict in Bermuda".
  There is another very good article, "Chancellorsville" and another lengthy article entitled "Gen. D. H. Hill" as well as another installment of the "Confederate Navy".

Could be used in a large wall tent, historical home or a caboose.

SMALL WOODEN STIRRUP

  This is what I would call a "small size" wooden stirrup. Probably for a pony saddle. I normally sit these things back until I find a pair but they are getting scarce these days so I'm just going go ahead and list it. I'm sure someone has a saddle that needs one.
  This one measures 6 inches tall and 5 inches at it's widest.

WHITE WOOL BLANKET

  This white wool blanket is huge, 95 by 95 inches and it weights over 4 lbs. It's used but there are no stains or bad spots of any kind. It's American made and 100% wool.
  You could use this one like a sleeping bag. Lay on half and fold the other over you. You could cut this blanket into 2 smaller blankets if you don't mind making a blanket stitch.
  This blanket could easily be re-invented, dyed and cut into capes etc. White wool blankets are getting hard to come by. This one will go fast.

BEAR SKIN LAP BLANKET

  This fake fur "Bear Skin" lap blanket really has the look. I've only owned one original but for actual use this fake fur lap blanket is better. The original was impractical as it weighed a ton.
  Perfect for a buggy ride on a cold night or just sitting around the campfire at Camp Re fu gee. It measures 48 by 58 inches.

1881 SCOUT ARMY STOVE

  Well this was certainly an unusual find. You will have to forgive the name I have given this piece. The only drawing (no photographs) of it I have been able to find is in the 1881 book, "Mountain Scouting", A handbook for officers and soldiers on the frontiers, by Edward S. Farrow. It's on page 177 if you want to look it up.

  It measures 14 inches wide, 18 inches long, or deep if you prefer and 18 inches tall with the legs attached, the legs are removable. Amazingly it weights less than 10 lbs.! You can pack this stove anywhere. It's just as strong now as the day it was made, very useable. It has one small rust hole in the bottom about the size of a small pencil erraser but don't let that concern you as the surrounding material is strong.

  Now I'm not saying that this is original to the Indian wars. It may not be G.I. at all. The style is very similiar if not exact to the example I have givin above. You know as well as I that the army will adopt goods from the civillian market and vice versa but regardless of when it was made or for whom, it does have the look.

  Now should you wish to actually use this stove - go ahead. As long as you treat it with respect it will last a very long time. It's tin and tin burns out easily. The trick is to shovel several scoops of dirt into the stove to act as insulation against the heat and build small fires. If you don't do that - well - then you will ruin it in short order.

SHUTTLE FOR A HAND LOOM

  This would be a very unique gift for anyone who loves weaving or the spinning arts in general. Like everything else I like - these things are really getting scarce. In the past I have paid as little as $1.00 for them and they were marked, some with war dates. Now I hardly see them for sale.
  This one has the single feed out hole in the back as is typical. It measures 11.5 inches long and 1 7/8 inch wide and is just over 1 inch tall. It's a neat little piece of weaving history.

HAND STITCHED LYNCHBURG TENNESSEE QUILTS

  There are so many things that I would like to say about these quilts and the wonderful lady who made them I really don't know where to start. First I suppose I should address the mis-information I hear being "spouted about" by some of our so called experts in the reenacting community. I have heard it said from time to time how incorrect it would be for a Southern soldier to carry a patchwork quilt - to which I would like to reply shouting from the roof top at the top of my lungs "B.S.!" And heres why.
  Take a look at any newspaper from any small Southern town that raised a company of soldiers. Not the war date but just prior to the war when these companies were first being formed. So many of these papers published a weekly list of the donations that the local citizens had made to said company. Why you ask? Because then as today publishing such things promotes the generosity of the giver. People love to see their name in the paper. Although I have seen many examples of this over the years the one I have in hand is a local paper with a list of some 120 items that had been donated to the company that would later become Co. G of the 41st Tenn. Vol. C.S. Over 15 percent of those donations were quilts. And yes they do make a distinction between wool blankets, jacards, coverlets and quilts in their listing. I'm not even going to start on the surviving examples of war dated quilts that were made as donations to fund raising events or war dated memorial quilts. The most famous of which being the 17th Tenn. quilt. So now I here you say "Well they were only early war". Yes and no, I don't know about you but my nice warm quilt would be one of the last things I would leave behind. I don't think they were much different. We tend to think about our own comfort fairly often. Of course attrition and the decimation of the southern populace and their ability to conduct commerce would have a very thinning effect on the ability to produce quilts so let's turn our attention northward for just a moment.
  There is example after example of surviving quilts and the paper trail which led to their construction and distribution to the northern troops by the good work of the US Sanitary Commission. Once again boys and girls that is why I stress the merits of doing your own research and tracking down the first hand accounts and primary sources of your information. Now that that is off my chest let me tell you about these quilts.

  Firstly I do not recommend that you buy one of these quilts and take it to a reenactment. That would be like taking your 32 Ford Roadster out mudding. They are just too nice and belong on your bed, at home or better yet in any historical home, public or private. The quality of workmanship and material is simply amazing. As a young child I sat at my Mother's feet while 3 generations of our family made quilts. I know a little something of what I speak.

 : So let me tell you about "Granny". Granny Lois Scroggins, the Grand Ole Dame who was the architect of these quilts. Mrs. Scroggins was born in Oklahoma City in 1920 and learned to sew, knit and crochet at a very early age. These skills helped support the family as during the dust bowl years they had to travel about following the work. Finally establishing themselves in Moore Co. Tenn. Which most of you will know better as world famous Lynchburg Tn. Home to the Jack Daniel's Distillery. During her adult life she would only sew for family, but once she retired she returned to her first vocation with a vengeance. Working 8 hours a day just as if she were at a public job she could produce a finished quilt in about 3 weeks by herself! Every stitch is hand sewn, top to bottom, inside and out. All the materials are 100% cotton including the tread. In design and scope she was only limited by her imagination which meant she had few limits as she was one of the most creative people you would ever meet. Sadly she passed away in 2012, near the end of her life her fingers had become to stiff to sew but she has left a legacy that will last for generations to come.
  The family is selling off a few of her quilts as they are down sizing due to health reasons. You will never have another chance to buy a quilt of this quality at any price and I do not expect them to last long. All of these quilts are very large, I will give the exact measurements of each below.





HAND STITCHED COMBO QUILT

The bear paw meant "keep to the woods". This quilt measures 101 inches by 98 inches.

CHEWED .69 CAL. BALL

  This .69 caliber round ball was found in a CS camp in Wartrace Tn. As the story goes these balls were used by Surgeons when there was little or no anesthesia. The patient would bite down on these bullets to keep from cracking his teeth during the extreme pain of surgery. That would give us a very short window of when this ball was used. The only local battle to produce any amount of casualties was the Tullahoma Campaign which started on the evening of June 23 of 63 and the troops withdrawing from our area (Wartrace) on the 26th. CS troops never reoccupied this area again.

STEAMSHIP ROBERT E. LEE

  I know that this has nothing to do with the CW except the name Robert E. Lee but these are so hard to find I just had to offer them here.
    In the 1980's George Dickel Distillery produced a line of commemorative wooden boxes which held two - one fifth bottles of their fine product. They ceased the production of these boxes almost 30 years ago so as you can imagine they are all long gone --- with the exception of the few that I was lucky enough to find. The box tops are made from cabinet grade material and the box is very well put together. They are decorative, collectible and very hard to find. As you might imagine the R.E. Lee is one of the most sought after. Imagine using this box for a Christmas present or putting another gift inside it for double the surprise. You could even refill it with your favorite brand of spirits, I recommend G.D.'s though, they did make the box.
  These boxes measure approx. 12 inches long by 9 wide and 4 inches deep. The lids are snug but will slide completely off if you wish. This would be handy if you wish to do something crafty with the inside of it. Most folks will just use them for decoration around the old bar area but don't limit yourself. I bet you can thing of a lot of ways to use these.

STEAMSHIP ROBERT E. LEE $19.95
BUY NOW!

  If you prefer I have the box tops only. You can easily add a picture hanging loop to the reverse (available at any craft or hardware store) and hang it on the wall for decoration.

  The second printing is here! Much of our initial printing cost and overhead was covered by the sale of our first printing of this fantastic book. Now we can offer it to you at an even lower price than before. Hopefully this will give even more people access to this book which many are calling the "Civilian Company Aytch".

  L. Virginia French's journal gives the best insight into the everyday life of a Middle Tennessean that was ever put to pen. During the first part of the journal her thoughts are somewhat philosophical but as time goes on and the war comes to her home in McMinnville Tennessee it all becomes very personal. Accounts of Yankee raids on the town, factories burned without warning while the female workers are still on the top floor and Cavalry battles literally in her front yard. She entertains General John Hunt Morgan and his new bride Mattie Ready Morgan days after their wedding. Fans of General Morgan will be amazed at the stories Mrs. French records in her journal as told by the General himself. Written down the very day of the telling. General Wheeler visits so often that a member of his staff becomes engaged to Virginia's niece!
  Women will be astounded by the details of of the local ladies dress, right down to the fabric, buttons and even their jewelry.
  Details of how Terry's Texas Rangers were re-equipped by the local tradesmen, from their horse tac, shoes, boots and even how the local ladies pitched in to help with the clothing.
  Every General officer, Colonel or Major that passes through the area calls on Mrs. French and she relates their tales to you through her journal. So many of the nagging questions about everyday life during the period, that I never thought I would know the answer to unfolded before me in crystal clarity as I read this journal.
  It is probably best that we let her speak for herself.

  A very small portion of this journal has been edited for clarity. In a few cases so has the spelling. But for the most part is appears here just as it does in the journal.

1860 CAVALRY SABER

  Wow! what a great deal on an 1860 Cav. saber. These sabers are very sturdy and well made. The size and weight of this blade is very close to the originals too. There are some dings on the leather handle wraps but nothing larger than a quarter inch. Nothing to loose any sleep over, just thought you should know. The best part about these sabers is the price. Only $44.95. I've only got a few. If you want one you had better get it now before they are all gone.

BRASS BUCKLES

  Sorry that the photo is not as clear as it should be. These cast brass buckles are not the top quality buckles that we sell everyday. But with that being said I'll add that they aint that bad either. They have the traditional C.W. style back but they are easily converted to fit your everyday belt. Made from solid cast brass that will last a lifetime. But I saved the best for last, they are super cheap! $5.95 each for oval or rectangle buckles and $9.95 for tongue and wreath. It's hard to go wrong at that price.

Here's the line up; Top left tongue and wreath is a Ky. state seal.
