    Looking for Reenacting Units and current contact information

    I'm a fresh fish and my wife and I are moving from Central Florida to Tennessee. I have always wanted to reenact. As I now have the time and means to do so I would very much like to find a unit in Tennessee. I did bop around on the internet but seemed to only have my emails returned as they...

    !!The 2 rivet scabbard!!

    Hello All, I'm trying to look into the use of the 2 rivet scabbard, during the war. If anyone can share some information I would greatly appreciate it. Also, was it used by both sides of the war. CWcadet

    Enfield 1858 2 band Naval rifles used by Northern troops?

    Was wondering if the Enfield P1858 Naval rifle, with the brass furniture, was ever used much, or at all by the Union military (North)? I know that there were many of the 1860 Army rifles (Enfield) issued and used by the South, but not sure about either the P1858 or P1860 Army being used by U.S...

    1853 Enfield with No Proof Markings?

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and this is my first post. I historically have collected Soviet and German WWII arms, but recently have taken an interest in black powder firearms and have a few reproductions (1860 Henry, 1858 Remington and 1874 Sharps) in my regular shooting collection and am...

    Standard rifle carry

    Two Band P.60

    I’m slowly putting together a Florida Volunteer Coast Guard/CSCG/CS Naval impression (USNLP). While I know it sounds like a bit much I am buying in stages, doing my research. This might be redirected to another thread, but I have heard the P.60 Enfield was used sharpshooters and cavalry. I have...

    M1856 Enfield Carbine

    I have been interested in weapons in all wars. While I know that Springfields, Enfields, Richmonds, ETC were used, I was wondering about the M1856 Carbine. I think was fairly rare due to the destruction of I think 1,000 of them that were marked (no tower of JS pun intended) for Forrest. That...
