What do you think the CW vets (on either side) would think? JEB would probably love it. If he had lived, I could see him signing even more autographed CDVs. Lee would have deplored the whole thing, some would have been simply bemused, and then others would be scrabbling to where they left that gun or Whitworth under the tree, eaves or barn!

Seriously, can you imagine any of the cavalry believing a stirrup or a bit going for 200.00 and up? They would be dumbfounded! Never mind pieces of shot and shell.

Grant's presentation sword - $1,673,000
JEB Stuart's battle flag - $956,000

Probably the same thing reenactors say when they see the fakes selling on eBay..."wow I'm rich, I have a whole basement (trunk) full of that stuff"...…….
