Civil War Swords & Sabers

During the American Civil War, the Confederate and Union armies used rifles and muskets as one of their primary weapons for battle. At times, however, close quarters forced the two armies to resort to fighting with Civil War swords and Civil War sabers. We have both functional and decorative Civil War blades for re-enactors, stage performances, and collectors to enjoy. These Civil War replica swords are made of high quality materials and feature authentic detailing, modeled on the actual historical swords used during the American Civil War from 1860 to 1865. These re-enactment swords and period sabers are great for Civil War buffs and collectors to put on display when they are not in use. Our Confederate swords and Union swords include striking military blades like cavalry sabers, the Patton sword, the Trooper sword, and various officer swords.
