Welcome to my site, especially made for collectors of artifacts from the Civil War, and devoted to Civil War buffs everwhere! I myself am a collector, and have been for over 5 years. During this time I have amassed a collection of over 150 items. These include period rifles, swords, knives, armor, uniforms, belt buckles, and especially canteens. Every year I travel to many exhibition shows all over the eastern United States, where I meet hundereds of people who share my passion. Whether you're a "buff" or not, I hope you will enjoy and benefit from this site.
Looking to buy or sell an item from the Civil War, or just want to get a genereral feel for what's out there? Check out the virtual bulletin board. There you can view posts by other buffs dealing with artifacts, Civil War stories, information, or other related tidbits. Have something to share? Send me an e-mail and I'll post your message too.
Other sections in the site include a page with the most current information I can find on upcoming Civil War shows or other events. Still want more? Stop by my page with links to other great Civil War sites (as if my site wasn't good enough!)
This site is also loaded with .gif images. Check out my pictures page with photos of canteens from my own collection, as well as incredible images from a Civil War clip art CD-ROM. Also, for the Civil War history buff, be sure to go to the Civil War timeline. There you'll find everything you ever wanted to know (almost) about this historical event. To navigate easily between pages, simply click on the page you desire at the blue menu bar featured on every page.
As always, anyone who has questions, comments, ideas, or wants to "talk shop" is greatly encouraged to e-mail me by clicking on the icon at the bottom of every page.
Again, welcome and thank you for visiting. I hope you will bookmark this page and come back soon! Enjoy!
