Offering Quality Civil War Items for More Than 37 Years

"Museum Quality ~ Built for Field Service"

~ That was the motto my father had when he started this business 37 years ago. History was his passion... and the biggest reason I wanted to keep this business going.

Hello! I'm the youngest daughter of Albert & Mary Lou Schlachter and I began going to Civil War reenactments when I was just 5 years old. I definitely didn't have the understanding or knowledge of the hobby then as I do today. Therefore, I have grown to appreciate history in general and find myself always wanting to learn more about the Civil War era in American History.
