Pattern similar to Peterson #11. Brass hilt with ribbed bone grip. The langets of shield form, absent the “Stars & Bars” details which may indicate Southern use. 29 1/2” d.e. blade with brown patina, also consistent with Confederate use and clandestine preservation after the war. At the outbreak of the Civil War, combatants consisted almost entirely of state militia, one of which this sword served.
