About this Book

Collecting the Confederacy is the first scholarly photographic study of its kind. Finally, in one book, readers will be able to explore the history behind more than 1,400 different artifacts, relics, weapons, and antiques, each of which played a unique role in the 1861-1865 War Between the States.

Veteran collector and historian Shannon Pritchard spent years gathering priceless (and often one-of-a-kind) items to present this stunning display of a culture and society that exists today only in books and movies. Collecting the Confederacy is broken down into twenty chapters, each of which focuses on a particular type of artifact:

  1. Belt Buckles
  2. Long Arms
  3. Officer Swords
  4. Bayonets
  5. Ammunition
  6. Canteens
  7. Cap Boxes
  8. Flags and Staffs
  9. Headgear
  10. Cartridge Boxes
  1. Uniforms
  2. Pistols
  3. Gun Slings
  4. Handguns
  5. Horse Equipment
  6. Knives
  7. Shotguns
  8. Cavalry Swords
  9. Belts
  10. Miscellaneous Relics

Each of these chapters begins with a fascinating and insightful introduction to the subject matter, followed by photographs accompanied with detailed captions. This lavishly illustrated and meticulously crafted full-color volume will be welcomed by historians and collectors around the world.
