Exceptionally rare Mobile, Alabama manufactured Confederate Short Artillery Sword. Overall length of 26 inches. A seldom encountered CS Short Artillery Sword with its original scabbard. Hand guard CS Ordnance stamped with four X cross-hatches to scabbard assembly marks. Scabbard throat and drag riveted to leather scabbard. There are very few known surviving examples with or without their accompanying scabbards. At the onset of the Civil war various temporary Ordnance works grew up out of existing foundries, machine shops, railroad repair shops the few U.S. Arsenal and Ordnance depots. The main of these in the early part of the war were Richmond, Virginia, Fayetteville, N.C., Charleston, S.C., Augusta, G.A., Savannah & Macon, G.A., Nashville and Memphis, Tenn, Mt. Vernon and Montgomery, Ala, New Orleans & Baton Rouge, La, Little Rock, Ark, and San Antonio and Houston, Texas. Others were added such as Columbia, S.C. Atlanta & Columbus Ga, Selma, Alabama and Jackson, Mississippi. Of these latter places Atlanta and Selma became the most important. It is the my belief this CS Artillery Short sword was produced at the Mobile Armory, in Alabama. As war began, Military fervor in Mobile was high, with many responding to recruitment drives for service in the Confederate Army. The Creole Guard and the Southern Guard were among those new troops that manned Mobile's defenses, as did the Mobile Cadats. The Pelham Cadets "1st Battalion Alabama Cadets served at Mobile and in various parts of Alabama in 1864 & 1865. The C.S.S. Hunley, the first submarine to sink an enemy vessel in combat, was built and tested in Mobile before  being shipped to Charleston, South Carolina. Brierfield Iron works and Tannehill Iron works were additional CS Government furnaces purchased from the Bib County Iron Company in 1863. The Tallassee Confederate Armory, was an 1844 cotton mill in Tallassee, utilized by the Confederacy. When the Confederacy feared for the security of Richmond, VA. a decesion was made to relocate Richmond Carbine production to an 1844 cotton mill in Tallassee. The Tallassee CS Armory is additionally known as one of the only Confederate Armories to survive the Civil War.

Richmond Breech-Loading Sharps Carbine
Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture
In December 1862 the Confederate government entered into a contract with the S.C. Robinson Arms Manufactory in Richmond, VA, of which John H. Lester was then superintendent, to purchase all the breech loading carbines of the sharps pattern that the firm could produce. A quantity of Model 1859 Sharps carbines had been purchased by the state of Georgia prior to the outbreak of hostilities, which were subsequently "loaned" to the Confederacy, and it is likely that those modern, self-priming, self-contained paper cartridge-firing arms served as the model for the carbines made at the Richmond, VA  firm S.C. Robinson. In March 1863 the Confederate Ordnance Department took over the manufacture of Sharps pattern carbines from S.C. Robinson without a break in the serial numbering, although their side-plates were no longer marked with the Robinson name and date of manufacture. A survey among private and institutional collections revealed 183 surviving examples of Confederate Sharps carbines, of which 79 were made by the S.C. Robinson firm and 104 by the Confederate government. This Confederate government manufactured example is serial numbered 2644 and survives in a excellent state of original preservation, with original "matching" serial numbered Confederate "breech-block." The barrel retains a clear Richmond VA firm marking with excellent condition "wood stock" through-out. A completely original CS Sharps carbine is a true rarity to encounter today, in an  unaltered and original state.

The Parisian LeMat #861
Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture
The LeMat "Grapeshot Revolver" was quite the innovative sidearm during the Civil War. Colonel Alexandre LeMat, served as military "aid-de-camp" to the then governor of Louisiana and probably attended the Congress in Montgomery, Alabama, that created the Confederate States of America on February 4th 1861. Utilized by the Confederacy, Alexandre LeMat's unique revolvers were well received by Confederate Officers for their unequaled delivery. These examples have a cylinder of nine 42.cal chambers, with a 20 gauge lower shot gun barrel. These "rare" Parisian LeMat examples retain full octagon barrels, left side loading lever. This example is a transitional example with "first model pattern" spur trigger guard. Barrel marking COL. LeMat Bte S.G.D.G. Paris {in upper, and lower case type, also in block capitals, and old-style type or italics. The most significant difference between the Paris LeMats and the Liege LeMats is fitting and finishing. The Paris LeMats show much better workmanship as a general rule and the numbers are stamped more evenly. No. 861 is a Paris LeMat, with mixes of early and late features evenhandedly. Center switch makes it easy to to change the hammer nose position with one finger to fire revolver or shot barrels, but trigger-guard and frame assembly latch hark back to the earlier Belgian guns. On this example, the left-side loading lever has become standard. This is the actual example published on page 201 in the acclaimed reference LEMAT. THE MAN, THE GUN By Valmore J. Forgett & Alain F.Marie-Antoinette Serpette. Priced $29,900.00  CS Acquisitions Militaria

1862 Richmond Rifle Musket
Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture Click here to see the full picture
On April 18th, 1861 the U.S. Arsenal and Armory at Harpers Ferry, Virginia  was captured by forces of the Commonwealth Virginia. The machinery for making .58 Rifle-Muskets for the U.S. Model 1855 pattern, was removed to Richmond, by Lieutenant-Colonel James Henry Burton, and placed temporarily in a tobacco warehouse. After refurbishment of the Old Virginia Armory, equipment was installed and Lt. Col. Burton was placed in charge of the operation. On August 23rd, 1861, the Virginia Armory was officially taken over by the Confederate government, after which it was know as the Richmond Armory. In 1862 the machinery for Rifle manufacturing was sent to the Armory at Fayetteville, North Carolina. Also in 1862, the Richmond stock-manufacturing machinery was first shipped to Atlanta and then to Macon, Georgia. From that point on, Richmond Armory was a assembling and finishing operation only. This exceptionally rare example, is designated as a Type II pattern Richmond Rifle Musket. "High" Humpback lock-plate marked Richmond, Va with CS stamping added above Richmond, Va, indicative of an example produced after the take over by the Confederate government. This rare pattern utilizes parts captured at Harpers Ferry, with iron butt-plate and iron nose-cap. This example is a Confederate manufactured Richmond longarm with Harpers Ferry-type proof barrel stamping i.e."V" over "P" over eagle head and 1862 barrel date. Rear site is three-leaf U.S.model 1858 type with the square ramp to rear base. A very rare Confederate manufactured arm that survives in an exceptional state of preservation.                               CS Acquisitions Museum
