RARE US CIVIL WAR REGULATION ISSUE HAVERSACK

$1,750.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 149-37

Next to his rifle and cartridge box the most important thing a Civil War soldier carried was his haversack. In it he would carry the item that was near and dear to his heart… his rations! This is a rare item to find as haversacks saw hard service in the war carrying everything from food, to extra rounds for the musket, to personal items, to treasures and mementos from home and battlefield. Going into action soldiers would often drop knapsacks, but never the haversack. It was always with them.

This item is made entirely of painted canvas. The bag itself meas. approx. 11.50 inches long x 9.50 inches wide. The body of the bag is in excellent condition but does have three very small holes in the lower corner. All the stitching is good and tight. The leather tab and roller buckle which hold the bag closed are still firmly anchored in place, only the tip of the leather tab is missing.

The sling is full length and still firmly attached despite an 0.08 of an inch separation on one side.

All in all this is not a bad example of a rare, hard to find personal item.  [ad][ph:L]
