" Women on horseback, with boys en croupe, and sacks in their hands, clamored for salt. Twenty-five cents a quart, payable in eggs, butter, chickens, money, the genuine ringing silver, anything for the saline treasure. Had Lot's wife been cystallized at Elk Horn, the monument of her disobedience would have been hailed as manna from above." - At Elk Horn Tavern, Arkansas, December, 1862 - Lieutenant-Colonel Albert Webb Bishop, 1st Arkansas Cavalry, U.S., - From his book, "Loyalty On The Frontier," - Edited by Kim Allen Scott

Celluloid Button w/stickpin from the 38th Annual Reunion of the United Confederate Veterans at Little Rock, Arkansas, May 8th-11th, 1928. Click on the button to see images of several original Confederate Reunion photographs of soldiers from Arkansas. Most of these guys served in our area and were still attending reunions until they day they died. If we could only have asked some of these old gray bearded vets about their war experiences we'd learn so much.

Very Good Dropped "Jenkin's Ferry" Musketoon Bullet
Good Dropped .69 Caliber "Jenkin's Ferry Musketoon" Bullet
Here is A Very Good Dropped "Jenkin's Ferry" Musketoon Bullet ! It has a few period scrapes, that may be intentional carving, but don't detract much at all. It has a nice patina and still retains good form with no damage to the cavity walls. These bullets are harder to come by than you might think. This one isn't perfect, but it isn't $300 either, and will still display great. Link at left goes to Bullets Page 1.
Nice Dug Carbine Sling Buckle & Batwing w/Leather
Fine Excavated U.S. Carbine Sling Buckle and Belt Tip/Batwing
Here is A Nice Excavated U.S. Trooper's Carbine Sling Buckle & Batwing or Belt Tip ! Both pieces have a great patina that is very similar and I could see them dug near each other. Both tongues are present on the buckle and still move freely. The Batwing has all four brass pins or studs present and remnants of the leather belt still under the reverse side. Link at left goes to Accoutrement Plates !
Fine Cdv Image of U.S. General George H. Thomas - the "Rock of Chickamauga"
Cdv of US General George Thomas - the "Rock of Chickamauga" with blue tax stamp
Here is A Nice Cdv Image of the "Rock of Chickamauga, U.S. General George Thomas ! The General's image is nicely focused with good contrast and captures him from the chest up in uniform. A few small stains but not on the subject and mount has the double gold line border, as well as a Blue Tax Stamp on reverse. Link at left goes to Cdvs & Albumens.
