Civil War

Read More
The American Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865, called the War Between the States. The United States was divided in half - the northern states called the Union and the southern states called the Confederacy. Eleven southern states declared their secession from the U.S. and formed the Confederate States of America. Hostilities began on April 12, 1861, when the Confederate Army attacked a U.S. military installation at Fort Sumter in South Carolina. The Confederate commander Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union commander Ulysses S. Grant at the Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. The Civil War was the deadliest conflict in American History that caused 620,000 soldier deaths and ended the slavery in the United States.

Crusades

Read More
The Crusades were a series of holy wars by western Christians to recapture the Holy Land from the Muslims. The Crusades began in 1096 and ended in the late 13th century. The term Crusade was originally applied to European efforts to retake the city of Jerusalem, which was sacred to Christians as the site of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Thousands of men, and even women, ranging from knights to peasants marched in the Crusades. Many military religious orders combined spirituality with martial ideas of knighthood and chivalry patterned on monasticism. The most famous groups were the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, also called the Hospitalers, and the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, called the Templars. These orders of Crusading knights tried to mediate between the Churchs concerns and the interests of various princes. The Templar knights and Hospitaler knights began to gain popularity and support as they gained wealth. They extended the politics of Western Europe, built and fortified great castles, and sat on the councils of rulers. Join us at Medieval Collectibles and get your Crusader knights clothing, Crusader swords, Crusader armour, Crusader shields, and many other collectibles from this historical period!

The Vikings were Norse or Scandinavian people famous for being pirates, explorers, and merchants who raided and colonized areas in Europe.

A wealthy Viking would own a Viking helmet, Viking shield, chainmail shirt and a coat made from animal skin or reindeer hides. A poorer Viking may only own a single weapon and a shield. The Viking shield and spear were the basic armaments of a warrior, while others would carry a knife known as a seax, a bow, or a Viking axe.
