These Model 1858 McClellan bags were made by C.S. Storms of New York City and are marked on the flap of the smaller bag. In 1862 Storms moved from St. Louis to New York City. He had a number of government contracts for a variety of leather accoutrements.

Saddlebags had a wide variety of uses by cavalry troopers during the Civil War. Among them, it is speculated that their original purpose was to carry extra, pre-fitted horseshoes so that a cavalry expedition need not be delayed.

Leather on bags is supple with light to moderate crazing. Both latch tabs are present. Inner leather lacing is present on larger bag. Smaller bag has inner pocket. Cross straps that connect bags shows heavier crazing. “U.S.” is marked on one strap. Interior of bags is good. This item would be a great addition to a cavalry collection.  [sl]
