American Civil War

The Civil War, beginning in 1861 and ending in 1865, was the bloodiest war in American history, More than 10,000 military actions took place with at least 618,000 Americans dying from battle or disease; more than the total losses from the American Revolution through the Vietnam War. Museum Replicas understands the importance of this time in our history and is here to meet your Civil War Re-enactment requirements.

We offer pants, shirts, jackets, vests, and caps from both the Confederate and the Union sides. Accessories and other products include belts, utensils, and mugs. These high-quality Civil War garments and collectibles are great for Civil War collectors, reenactors, and stage props.

Swords and Weapons

Southern and Northern forces were issued with a variety of swords depending on their fighting style; cavalrymen, infantry, artillerymen, marines and officers, all had distinct weapons - knives, swords and sabres. In course of the civil war, sword bayonets were developed - a 23 inch blade mounted on the end of a rifle or musket turned the slow-to-reload medium range weapon into an effective spear for close range work. Museum Replicas manufacters and distributes a great selection of these historic knives, sabres, swords and bayonets.

Review of: US 1860 Naval Cutlass

Absolutely wonderful.  Can be used in Civil War Reenacting or as part of a pirate costume.  I have an early original pattern 1860 Cavalry Sabre made by Ames Mfg Co.  and the only difference between that one and this apart from size is the maker marks on the original are stamped not lazer engraved.   Stamping would have been a nice touch...

Review of: US 1860 Naval Cutlass

Handsome, elegant, ferocious.  This cutlass feels the way I would want any sword to feel.  The thanks to the profile taper the balance is perfect for a cut-centric sword with no sense of blade heaviness at all and still with wonderful point control.  Seems to match the original pattern closely and is solidly put together (the hilt is peened and seems to have the additional strength of being resined as well). The only negative is that the wire wrapping on the grip can irritate the had...on the other hand (pun!), it does cause the sword to remain locked in your grip.  This little sword has been the standard setter in my collection and continues to be.  It's also a great Steampunk cutlass for those wanting one to round off a costume.

Review of: Officer's Silk Sash

Wow.  The maroon with any black shirt is beyond dashing.
The knit is a little wider than it looks in the picture and they ARE 9 feet long.
The tassels are surprising weighty too, but not badly so.

If you're looking between this and the rayon sash, get this!
(I don't own a rayon one, but this one is really awesome.)

Review of: US 1860 Naval Cutlass

I love this cutlass.  It is well balanced and very quick in the hand.  It is by far my favorite long blade and second only to my hand forged Tomahawk.

The scabbard is well made with a handy belt frog.  I purchased the European baldric as I find it much more comfortable to wear. Plus it looks so badass!

Review of: Nashville Plow Works Cavalry Saber

Was very satisfied with the Saber.  The quality of the product exceeded my expectation and is very well made.  I would recommend this product to anyone and would do additional business with Museum Replicas in the future with complete confidence.

Review of: US 1860 Naval Cutlass

A nicely balanced weapon that almost floats in my hand. It is very fast and maneuverable in close quarters. The workmanship and fit is excellent. From the sharp point to about 8" down, it is like a knife blade. Then the blade transitions into a cleaving edge.  So you may lightly slit, deeply slice, stab, or chop with confidence. This is the favorite of my sword collection.
