    My bad on the price. I too visited them at Chancellorsville and when I found out they were retiring from the road, I bought this canteen. I'm very pleased with the quality! I have numerous items from...

    I'm no canteen expert, so I'll leave the discussion of who made this canteen to others. Village Tinsmithing has offered this canteen for about a year now and it is a beauty. I've seen it on a couple...

    A few years back, while doing a Living History at the Snodgrass Cabin on Chickamauga Battlefield, a young boy asked how soldiers cut their fingernails. I've fielded a few questions before, but this...

    When I have a question, I always look in my modest library FIRST! To quote Thomas Jefferson, "I could not live in a world without books." I guess I'm just "old school" about reading. Thanks for the...

    I have no knowledge of such a flag...whether it existed or not. Would it be possible to take a photo and post it here? I'm skeptical like the others and I'd hate to see you get taken.

    There will be quite a few Tar Heels making the trip to Fredericksburg for Fire on The Rappahannock. We realized that this event, like others, required getting registration in early so as not to miss...

    As we are starting to wind down 1862, we are starting to plan for 1863. It would be nice to see a thread listing events for 63, as we're all trying to figure out where we want to go, where we can go,...

    It is my understanding (correct me if I'm wrong) that Navy Arms caps are no longer in production. Like Mr. Barry, when I got wind that would cease production I and my unit purchased a large quantity....

    I'll toss my take into the mix about the CORNFIELD (and it should be capitalized). Trying to advance through the smoke and cornstalks, groping for an enemy you can't see. Suddenly finding out they...

    To echo Brett, my NC unit (22nd NC, Co. K) doesn't galvanize. We do however, portray the 40th Illinois when needed. A few years back we attended an event where the force ratio was ridiculous. We...
