  • If you could have one item from the Civil War what would it be?

    For me it would be Gen. Grant's sword. Or perhaps an item carried by one of my ancestors who fought in the war.

    A Whitworth Rifle.

    ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
    All human ills he can subdue,
    Or with a bauble or medal
    Can win mans heart for you;
    And many a blessing know to stew
    To make a megloamaniac bright;
    Give honour to the dainty Corse,
    The Pixie is a little shite.

            20190926_124859.jpg20190926_130433.jpg20160901_111537.jpg I have a Springfield Model 1861 rifle, and a musician's sword of the same year.
            I would like to have a regimental flag of the Vermont Brigade

            As I'm greedy, I would like to change the pieces of uniform and equipment of my dummy (manikin) by authentic things, including knapsack, haversack and personal items
            I did CW re-enactment in France

            some items bought in the Elderly Things Antiques in Manassas in 1986 when I visited USA

              Very tough call. An Iron Brigade uniform, but I'd settle for just the Hardee hat.

                    No I have not, it is in the original .52 caliber and not converted to .50/70 after the war, I also have a Harpers Ferry 1842 Musket Cal. .69 also used in the Civil War.

                        That is very impressive! The only thing I have from the Civil War is a Union Ammo pouch which is missing the brass US badge . It was a gift from an old friend who once worked at Gettysburg as a US Parks guide.

                            An original Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia autographed by Robert E. Lee.

                            I acted as Lee in an elementary school play.
                            Flag: USA / Location: West Coast
