The Relics of War
Collecting Artifacts From The Civil War
A Civil War artifact collection does not have to be big with hundreds of pieces. Remember that individual collections are built up over a period of time and every collector started with that first item! You hands out there that have been collecting for a while remember your first piece. That moment when you knew that this is going to be more than a mere hobby for you. Knowing this is history you can hold and touch and that collecting is a purpose you’ll have a passion for. A Civil War relic is not just a physical thing. It is a piece in the story of someone’s life. Someone that had likely fought, and possibly died, during a Civil War battle a century and a half ago.
Whether you choose to call them Civil War relics, memorabilia, artifacts or antiques, the items in your collection are yours alone. You acquire them yourself, either by buying them, or going out into the field and finding them. You’ll go to estate sales, auctions, browse pawnshops and antique stores on the chance of finding that piece that’s been overlooked by others. Online stores such as Civil War Costumes are fast becoming a favorite source for collectors. Finding a dug bullet, a Civil War button or other authentic artifact at a fair price is special indeed!
Our store has many memorabilia dealers and re-sellers looking for, and finding, pieces that they make a profit on. We have low Internet prices direct from trusted individual sellers and many times you can name your own price.
