Civil War Canvas Tents

About C&C Sutlery Tents

Our tents are made with the highest Quality 10.38 oz Sunforger Canvas. The canvas is natural colored and 100% cotton. The strong but lightweight canvas is marine boatshrunk, water repellent and mildew, mold, algea, and fungi resistant. They should give you many, many years of service.

Our tents feature double stitched seams and reinforcements at the corners and grommets and webbing stake loops along the bottom edges. Optional double door, sod cloth, ground cover and tent flys are available.

Tent Options

Sod Cloth
A sod cloth is band of canvas about 10"-12" wide that is sewn around the bottom, inside of the tent, not including the door. The purpose is to create a 'seal' to the ground to block wind, etc. from entering the tent at the ground level. The sod cloth is used instead of straw. Note that the sod cloth is not a tent floor, you will need a ground cloth to serve that purpose.
 
Double Door
A Double Door tent has both a front door and a back door. The primary purpose of the back door is increased ventilation. All of our "A" Frame and Wall Tents are available with the optional double door.
 
Flame retardant tents are available upon request and at an additional charge.
 

How to Care for Your Canvas

The cleaner you keep you canvas tents, flys, and ground cloths, the longer they will last. Mildew grows on dirt, so it is important to clean your canvas before putting it away. To clean our canvas we recommend mild hand dishwashing liquid like Ivory in lukewarm water; about a capful to one gallon. Lay the canvas flat and scrub GENTLY  with a rag or a very soft brush. The harder you scrub the more you risk scrubbing off the waterproofing. DO NOT use bleach or any other chemicals. When finished make sure you rinse very well. Any soap left on the canvas could cause the tent to leak.
Make sure the canvas is very dry before you store it.

We do not sell tent poles. The shipping cost would be prohibitive and you can purchase them at your local home improvement store.

Our tents are proudly MADE IN USA.

Additional Shipping charges may be applied due to box size, weight, and shipping distance.

TentPeg_SM.jpg
$2.95

Few foot soldiers would have carried around the extra weight of steel tent pegs. Steel was more important for other uses than tent pegs so it is likely that even officers may have used wooden tent pegs.  Discarded crates, tree branches and small trees were very common and it was easier to make the tent pegs when needed rather than carry them on a 20 mile march.

This camp-made peg would have been made by the soldier  from a discarded crate.

The head of the peg is about 1.5" and the length about 9.5". There are notches on both sides about 1.5" from the top. To make the the peg easier to drive into the ground you can cut angled points on the tip. And after a few uses, the peg will look wonderfully worn and authentic.

The tent peg is made from poplar, not pine, for durability and longevity.
