Hi, I'm Tom - I was raised in Maryland and now live in Louisiana, but travel all over the country for work. I've been a Civil War buff my entire life, having lived around the battlefields that saw much of the action. Recently, we finished building a house in Louisiana, so I am starting to have an interest in collecting relics. I wish I had time to dig, and that it was as easy as it used to be...but, for now I'm buying a few things here and there to display at my house. I am going to the Gettysburg show on June 3o and will also be there for re-enactment weekend. So far, I own one period gun - A Whitneyville M1841 Mississippi Rifle, forged in 1850. I have a period bayonet for a Springfield rifle, and a nice Union ammunition pouch w/tins - soon, I will have a rifle tool that was dug up near Mobile, AL. Fun stuff.
