About Civil War Swords

A turning point both in American history and the American psyche, the Civil War remains a compelling era for collectors and history aficionados. One coveted item of many memorabilia collectors is a Civil War sword. This weapon figures prominently in cavalry memorabilia, since a mounted soldier could often fight more easily with a bladed weapon than with a pistol or rifle. One iconic Civil War cavalry sword is the Model 1860 Light Cavalry Saber, which features a curved blade and ornate basket at the grip. A Civil War NCO sword often has a simpler guard at the grip, as opposed to more ornate basket guards found on officer or cavalry swords. Presentation swords produced during the war are also coveted collectibles and feature ornate detailing. If you are interested in this important era in American history and want to proudly display your own Civil War sword, find a vast inventory available on eBay.
