Civil War Swords and Civil War Sabers

Even if firearms were the typical weapon of the day, that did not mean that sabers and swords had vanished from the battlefield completely during the American Civil War. Any one of these Civil War swords and sabers would have served as an officer weapon, used as a symbol, as well as an effective weapon for the officer or cavalry rider to wield, should their pistol jam or the rifle run out of ammo. This impressive selection of swords and sabers serves to recreate the form of the many blades that Civil War officers ceremonially wear as a part of their field uniform. Surprisingly, swords were still standard fare on the battlefield, and even in the Civil War, where pistols and rifles were common, officers might still be found charging the lines on horseback, saber drawn and pistol blazing, both weapons put to good use. Our selection of sabers and swords runs across the whole variety of typical Civil War arms, including cavalry sabers for mounted attacks, infantry sabers for the casual soldier, and officer sabers of various designs and makes, to better suit those soldiers who had higher rank and status. Of course, some are offered in Confederate designs and emblazoned with Confederate logos, while others are adorned with Union emblems, to align them closer to their respective sides. Some of the swords offered in this category are fully functional, while others are designed more for decoration and costume use, making them a great choice to carry at your side for ceremonial appearances or non-combative re-enactments. For the collector, these Civil War swords and sabers make for great display pieces, which revive some history and bring it into your home or office. And for the reenactors, they are a much-needed piece that will complete any officer look, allowing them to lead charges right into the enemy line with confidence, as well as an authentic look.
