FIVE POUND 90% WOOL BLANKET

  We were lucky enough to land a few more of these brand new Italian style 90% wool blankets. We probably will not have them long as the supply is limited and very erratic. This is a true FIVE POUND blanket as recommended by the War Dept. in 1861. It is sage in color with a tan colored strip. They measure 80 inches long by 60 inches wide. If you would like to carry only one blanket and stay warm regardless of the temp. then this is the blanket to have.

CAMPAIGN LANTERN

  This is your lucky day. I just came across a great deal on a truck load of Campaign Lanterns. Hey, you've got to know a great deal when you see it. Now I'm going to pass that great deal on to you. I see other guys selling this exact same lantern for as much as $25.00 each. While these last I'm going to sell them for only $14.95! What a deal.
  These are tuff, well made and put off a ton of light. They measure 6.5 inches tall. 3 3/4 inches wide and are 2 1/4 inches deep. You can actually put your candles, matches and an extra pair of socks inside of one. Great for saving space in your knapack. I do have quite a few of these but I expect them to go fast. Better hurry before they are all gone

STUFF A

  Boy this is some great stuff, if you need stuff then this is the stuff you should have. Just remember, when you buy it - it's your stuff. There is probably something wrong with everything in the photo, a little rust, a lot of rust, a ding, a dent it leaks - well you get the picture. The point is that it is all still very usable and it's really cheap. Is this a cheesy trick to get you to buy up all these rusty tin cups? Why yes it is.

EYE GLASSES

  These eye glasses are size small to medium, 4.5 inches across from "leg to leg". That's fine for a youngster, a Lady or a small to average size man. They have the oval style lenses and of course the screw type frames so the lenses can be replace. They are not of the CW period but certainly have the look. the loop over the ear style legs makes these especially well suited for a youngster as they are more apt to loose - well - everything. A pretty solid pair of glasses all in all and at a very good price.

1857 FLYING EAGLE CENT

  I would like to tell you that I am a expert coin grader but that is not the case. I try to get close but it is just my best guess. "Fair" would be the top grade that I would put on this coin. That's why I try to show the best photos I can of coins. You be the judge. It will make a great addition to your living history display, that I can guarantee.

  I would like to tell you that I am a expert coin grader but that is not the case. I try to get close but it is just my best guess.

CEDAR SPIGOT





  It's been a really long time since I've seen one of these for sale. A cedar spigot, 8 inches long, aged but in perfect condition. So what's so special about that you ask? When a cedar spigot is correctly made (as this one is) it requires no cork gasket between the body and the key so it never wears out. Like all wood it does have to be soaked in water before using. Soak the pieces seperately so they don't "bind up". Once upon a time cedar was the gold standard for anything dealing with the water. The production of cedar buckets, spigots, etc. was once a very large industry here in Tennessee. Buckets you can still find. Spigots - not so much. I'm not likely to have another soon, better get this one while you can.

STAINLESS STEEL BULLSEYE CANTEENS

  The other day a supplier offered me a great deal a handful of SS canteens. I bought all he had sight unseen. After they arrived I was curious why he sold them to me for such a great price. After a close inspection I found that they did not put the spout collars on. Now this does not effect the performance of the canteen in any way. They don't rust or leak. They are just not made exactly like the originals. Unless you remove the wool cover no one will ever know except you and me and I aint tellin no one. Hell of deal though.

POWDER FLASK

  This is not a well made top of the line powder flask. These are seconds, not all but some are bumped, dinged, bent and with a weak spring that will probably have to be replaced in the future. Their only saving grace is their price. Look at it this way - The spout cost what I'm charging for the whole flask so you can't loose. And who couldn't use an extra flask for priming powder, cream of wheat, etc. etc.

PLAYING CARDS 1862

REDUCED FROM $9.95!

  Well it looked like nobody was going to reproduce these cards so I just did it myself. I got tired of playing poker at first Mananas with a deck that wasn't produced till 1864! The colors are brighter than seen in the photo. Some days my photographic abilities are somewhat lacking.

  Here's what the original box (and our repro) has printed on it.

The American Card Co. Confident that the introduction of NATIONAL EMBLEMS in the place of Foreign, in PLAYING Cards will be hailed with delight by the American People, take pleasure in presenting the UNION PLAYING CARDS as the first and only genuine American Cards ever produced, the the fullest confidence that the time is not far distant when they will be the leading card in the American market. etc. etc. etc.

ROPE BED (circa) 1840

  I bought this original rope bed and feather mattress about 15 years ago up in Maryland. The mattress measures 50 inches wide by 70 inches long (there abouts) I've really enjoyed it but I'm running out of space for large pieces like this. I guess it's time to pass it on and let someone else enjoy it. You get the bed, the rope and the feather mattress but the quilt is not included. The Jenny Lind Trunk at the foot of the bed is for sale too. You'll have to pick this one up, I don't think UPS will deliver this one.

SPIDER SKILLET

  These dog gone things are getting harder and harder to come by. A good solid 10 inch spider. This was an antique when the war started. I remember reading a news paper article from an Ohio paper. The reporter described the Confederate prisoners who had been captured at Fort Donaldson Tn. as they were marching towards prison camp. He was very taken by the mis matched butternut uniforms and said that several were even carrying old fashioned spider skillets.

WOOL BLANKET

  It's really hard to date some blankets. All I can say about this one is boy it's got the look! I'll betcha it's over 100 years old. It may not have seen the war but it saw those who did. It measures 46 inches wide and 69 inches long, that's just right for a single. It is not a heavy blanket. It would roll up tight and look very good tied and slung over your shoulder. Cream with brown stripes.

WOODEN CANDLE LANTERN

  Just in time for the spring season, remember - it's still going to get dark early for several months yet. A new or extra lantern would come in pretty handy. Especailly at this price. Just raise the front payne of glass and put your candle into the metal insert, light her up and your ready to go. Similar in size, scope and quality to the small wooden lantern that we've sold for years. I think you'll be very satisfied with this lantern.

PETERSON'S LADIES NATIONAL MAGAZINE
MAY 1862
SPECIAL PRICE $8.95!

  I have to admit that some times a product turns out better than I ever anticipated - this is one of those. The quality of this reprint is outstanding, as close to the original as was humanly possible. Every piece of type was re-set, this is no xerox copy! In addition it is the correct size and the fashion print is actually in color just as the original.
  If your not familiar with Peterson's you have really been missing out. Peterson's was published out of Philadelphia and was one of the most popular Ladies magazines of it's time, it overtook Godey's as the number one best seller in 1866 and Godey's never held that title again. The format is basically the same but it is my personal opinion that the writing is better as is their explanation of the fashions. As a matter of fact this issue has the best explanation of which materials to use for the different degrees of mourning that I have ever seen.
  Page after page of fashions for the lady of the house and the children. Knitting and crochet projects with detailed instructions, book reviews, songs with lyrics and music, stories, some serial, some complete and don't forget receipts. Many many examples of needlework and poems galore, few people realize or appreciate the popularity of poetry during the CW era. This will be a great asset to any ladies kit, especially for living histories.

SECOND PRINTING, NEW LOWER PRICE!
L. VIRGINIA FRENCH'S
WAR JOURNAL 1862-1865


  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.

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.
