6/26/2016: One of our C&C Sutlery customers attend Custer's Last Ride June 18-26, 2016 at the US Cavalry School Montana. Here is a promo video for the event. Here is the article from the Billings (Montana) Gazette regarding the event as well as a photo and quotes from Warren.
Below follows Warren S's report:
Commemoration of the 140th anniversary today, June 25. Custer orignially had 212 men. We had just over 200 mounted calvary. The Indians overwhelmed us. Two Indians grabbed me from my horse, knocked me to the ground and "killed" me with their tomahawks. While this was happening I was screaming wildly and firing my revolver. After the battle, I was part of the wreath-laying ceremony for the Unknown Soldier. Also, I was one of the 12 men selected to be part of a promotional video about the Little Big Horn Battlefield, which was filmed yesterday at the edge of the Little Big Horn River. I'm happy to say I narrowly escaped a six-foot rattler during filming. I will be giving the evening talk about making a fire with flint and steel. Only once per year, 16 are allowed by the Montana government to ride on horses with weapons up to Last Stand Hill. Tomorrow I will be one of the 16. It will be a very moving and proud moment for me.
June 23 - We made it! We have arrived at the Custer Battlefield. Temperatures still near 100. Terrain was difficult, narrow paths with 100' drop-offs on either side. I''ve certainly improved my riding skills. The Billings Gazette was here talking with many of us. We are just a few miles away from the site where the battle will take place!
Day 2 - 6/21 - Fed and watered the horses at sunrise. My horse's name is Bandit. Rode just under 20 miles on the open plain and across rivers. At times water level was half way up our boots. Saw 3' rattlers on the trails. Temps were at 100 degrees. Due to the heat, we each got two canteens. Flies were bad. We did the 20 miles in full marching order. Had grain bags on the horses. And a full train of pack animals. Arrived at camp at night. All of us laid in the creek in our long drawers. Dinner was buffalo, elk, wild turkey, and white-tail deer. I'm sun-burned, dusty, exhausted, and having the time of my life.
Here is the Day 1 (6/20) Report: Up before sunrise to feed and water the horses. Then they feed themselves. Have to remember to shake out your boots in the morning. Huge wood spiders and rattle snakes like to crawl into them during the night. Rode approximately 11 miles with Company Captain Tom Custer, 25 others, including 3 (real) Indian scouts. Nose Flies! Encountered nose flies that go up the horses noses and it drives them crazy. They buck and try to toss the rider off. Warren’s horse bucked and took off running with Warren on him. He was able to control the horse and get back with the group. Temperature is mid to upper 90’s and they are riding in wool. They stopped early due to the heat. Took a bath in the Little Big Horn River. Watered and fed horses again for the night. I am hot, tired, covered in dust, and loving every minute of it. This is not a re-enactment, it’s a time machine.
6/2/2016: Dear Friends, My thank you to all the sutlers and suppliers who helped me with orders to get ready for this.
As some of you may or may not know, I will be taking part in the 140th of the Little Big Horn Event in Montana the second half of June. It is much more than just a reenactment. We will be re-tracing the last 10 days of Custer's Military Expedition. The entire trip will be on horseback and cover approx 150-200 miles through the great plains of the American west. All participants with the recreated 7th Calvary will be in full Military Calvary kit ( 1875 ) for the duration of the trip. We will travel strictly on horseback, all supplies will be on pack animals in the supply column, coffee, hardtack, bacon and beans will comprise most of the rations. The trip will take us across the plains and we will ride by herds of free ranging buffalo, elk, antelope and be in country still inhabited by grizzly bears and wolves. And, of course rattlesnakes. The last day we ride onto the Real Bird Indian Reservation and recreate the epic battle. Less than 100 troopers will face 500-600 real Sioux and Lakota Indians for a no holds barred battle. The percentage or odds against us will be just about what Custer and his men faced. Since it is the 140th Anniversary, the NPS is then allowing us to ride with weapons to Last Stand Hill where the actual troopers fell and take a group photo.
We are strictly limited to what we can bring and will be virtually living off of horseback. I have been riding since the beginning of January and today rode in full kit with the equipment I will be bringing. Photos are attached showing the weapons, carbine boot, haversack and canteen placement on the horse. I am carrying an original 1873 Springfield trapdoor carbine from my collection and a reproduction Cimarron 45 Colt Calvary revolver. The photo of the gear is just about it. My U S issue blanket has 2 extra pairs of socks, 2 extra shirts, 1 extar pair of long drawers rolled inside, my housewife and that's it. The blanket will be folded and rolled in a shelter half to keep the dust off the blanket, rubber poncho gum blanket on the outside. The haversack will contain a gun cleaning kit, hardtack, small bags with salt, sugar, a period journal, quills and ink and some candles. I am also bringing a small digital camera to take photo. When I return, Bill Mellow, of CO F, has graciously offered to help me put together a power point / CD type presentation for historical societies, schools and so forth. Any monies generated will be donated through CO F for battlefield preservation. That is the right thing to do.
This is a chance of a lifetime to relive history and I hope to come home with memories and stories of the adventure and things that will ultimately make me a better soldier in CO F. Supposedly some of the major news networks are covering this. If I am able to communicate with my wife, she will send out updates to all of you. Warren S
6/23/2016: I wanted to drop a quick note and let you know that the Union shell jacket with 1SG stripes and piping arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased- it's perfect! Thank you for all you help and hard work. I will try to get pictures from the event in Emmitsburg, Maryland this Saturday and send a good one on to you. Thanks again for everything, Bruce E
6/18/2016: Good Saturday evening to you! I just wanted to say that I have been really pleased by all the reenactment gear I have bought from you! I have also started a Confederate regiment down here in San Diego. My site is 23rdtennesseeinfantry.com. On my home page, about 3/4s of the way down I put a direct link to your site. Hopefully this will help bring more business in!
6/8/2016: From C&C Sutlery's Google Business Page: the sack coat i received is fine, great quality (the budget line). k kelly. 5 stars.
6/1/2016: I ordered, and received, a great coat in brown with civilian buttons, 44reg. It arrived promptly and I couldn't be happier! Thick, well made and beautiful! I'm certain come winter and hunting I will be quite warm and dry! Thanks so much for making this special coat for me! Your most obt&c. Jed F, Lawton OK
6/1/2016: First of all, I received my civilian vest, trousers, and shirt; absolutely the best I have seen. In fact I just ordered another pair of trousers. Thanks. Dave G.
5/13/2016: Good Day Folks, I'm very pleased with the purchase of the Kepi Hat. The hat is a gift to my son, who has a great interest in the civil war. He can add this to his collection, I know he will be surprised and very pleased as well. Thank very much, Sheila I.
5/12/2016: Everything fits great! Infantry bugle and small irish harp on the kepi already. Pants at the tailor being hemmed and pewter buttons to close mule ears. Got those last weekend at Mansfield OH C.W. Artillery Show. With the button holes on the tuck in part of the coat, I think I'll add inside pewters at the top to help hold the neck closed and even. Sent a picture to my brother of me with all on; says he has to get a great coat. Thanks again, Mike in Michigan.
4/25/2016: I ordered 3 belt buckles from your online store and requested a funny picture on the package. I am extremely pleased with the picture [Picture="Kilroy was here" with the words "C&C Sutlery was Here"] and the customer service you provided. I cannot stress enough how much it means that you guys take the time to do the little things. If i ever have to purchase a civil war item I can guarantee that I will purchase it from you. Thank you again to whoever did that, it was awesome! Thanks, Trevor G., Canby OR
4/24/2016: And per your request on the budget-line clothing. The quality seems to be nice for the price. the buttons do need to be reinforced especially where saber belt sits I do not foresee button staying on to long once you are in saddle for awhile. overall it is good product for the person on a budget or who does not do reenactments often. I am on a budget myself but prefer to buy American made. The reason I had purchased your budget line was I needed it in a hurry. I usually do Indian wars but got recruited into the Texas 5th Cavalry by a friend who is a Capt. as there unit #s are dwindling down. I will be able to attest to the products durability after the battle of Glorieta Pass this coming weekend. Thank you. Clebert G., Peralta NM

4/22/2016: I received my order today, and it included a request for comments on budget-line clothing. I think that budget-line items are great for starting out, considering the expense involved in reenacting. They are also great for expanding existing uniform collections. My view on budget-line clothing is that I need to complete my uniform collection now, but later on I can replace the budget-line clothing as needed with more authentic materials, when I can afford to do so.

3/29/2016: The coat arrived yesterday. A truly fine job. It's extremely well-made and fits perfectly. I really appreciate it. I now need to think of something else for you to make for me. All the best, Howard R., Santa Fe NM.
3/28/2016: Hi, I just received the trousers that I had order. Thanks for the speedy delivery and the trousers (sky blue soldiers) are beautiful. They fit perfectly too. Dave S.
3/26/2016 from Facebook: My latest Garryowen trip to the mountain. My mindset this time was "veteran Union soldier who travels to the PNW in search of the man who killed his brothers." But first, we must make squirrel, lamb, coffee, and hardtack. Thanks to Henry Repeating Arms, Crazy Crow Trading Post and C & C Sutlery for some great firearms and gear. Love my big hunting coat and Union outfit, very impressed that these pants didn't rip. I was able to do full squats in them by the end of the trip. Brandon M.
3/22/2016: GREAT JOB on my junior officer frock coat! You guys did wonderful; I cant thank you enough. The tailoring was spot on and the jacket fit turned out great. I look forward to ordering again. A friend is considering joining the Signal Corps with me and will need to be outfitted - either a junior officer or NCO. It'll be some time before he places his order, but when he does, I'll surely send him your way. Here's a few pics from last weekends Victorian Event. Thanks again. Sean H
3/17/2016: Thank you for the prompt delivery of the carbine sling! It´s a perfect fit for my black powder WERDER: M/1869 (cartridge: 11.5x35R) cav. carbine that I shoot competitively (the cartridge box is also original (but Prussian Imperial) I´ve been looking for an original Bavarian carbine sling for many years and have practically given up hope, but your sling is as close to the original as I´ll ever get. Patrick V.

3/1/2016: I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the quality of my order and how fast it shipped out. I have been using other Sutlers for 10 years and found C&C through an internet search.

2/15/2016: Hi there! I recently made a purchase from your company and was wondering how I might leave a review for the items I purchased. I was vey pleased with the items I selected and would like to share with other potential customers. I had a fantastic experience ordering, my items were received much faster than expected, and your prices are amazing. I would like to know how I might "share the love" so to speak.

2/7/2016 from Facebook: I just got out of reenactment because I was away serving overseas in Afghanistan. So now the war is slowing down I want to start getting back into the world I used to love and that was doing the civil war reenactments. I had always gotten stuff from this company and nothing I could remember every was over looked. The detail and the quality you get is the best out there. I been involved in reenactment for almost 6 years, so I know who I can trust in buying items like this. To top it off this company is the only one that bundles Uniform set and leather goods. I guarantee if you look around you won't find a site that does that. They even have budget uniforms for the beginners. They make in way everyone ith budget can do this without fearing of being too costly. So I can go on and on with how great they are. One last thing they do have the number 1 best internet site out there. Go to other Civil War Sutler site and try to navigate. It's so easy to navigate and it shows that excellent to detail as well how the site is set up just like their item they sell. Justin B.
2/5/2016: received the Richmond gray sack coat and forage cap today. I LOVE the homespun style lining inside the sack coat: it is a blue stripe on cream/natural white. I would love to have a Civil War shirt made in this exact material.., I was reminded of a shirt that Kevin Costner wears in Dances With Wolves during the scene where he is torching the pile of deer. To me, the material looks identical to his shirt. Want to thank you for your wonderful products. I couldn’t be any happier with everything received. I’d like to wear my greatcoat around on a daily basis, in fact. :) And the other items are just as nice. Thank you and/or whomever does the work of putting the clothing together, and I look forward to doing continued business with you. John C., Tunnell Mill Pictures, LLC., Bloomfield KY.
2/4/2016 from Facebook: 5 stars. Excellent quality. First time customer and I will be using C&C again in the future! Very well made kepi! Justin G.
1/21/2016: We have received the cap and are wearing it, waiting for General Beauregard to issue the command to fire on Fort Sumter.... :)
1/18/2016: I received my Confederate shell jacket and brogans on Saturday. The jacket fits perfectly! The shoes are the correct size but are stiff and will require break in. I have added cushioned inserts and that helps a bit. Thanks! Richard A. S., Tampa, FL
1/14/2016: I received my Budget-Line CS Uniform Special today. All items a perfect fit, looks great. Thank you for the prompt service. I look forward to future purchases. Leon R.
1/8/2016: These products [budget-line products] seem to be perfect for our use. I purchased them for use in our Colonial interpretation programs. We only use them a few times a year and the cost and quality fit our budget. We Interpret in our Museum, in the Colonial Cemetery across the highway and in the Old Midway Church next door. These garments should be perfect. John R., Member Board of Governors, Midway Museum, Midway GA
1/5/2016: Eek! Your customer service has been excellent but wouldn't be able to afford to buy from you again. Just received a customs bill for $171 for my order!!! That's nearly 40%. Just thought you ought to warn UK buyers. Thanks Melody L., United Kingdom
1/4/2016: Happy New Year! After a nice break to get away from things, I wanted to get back to you all regarding the orders I placed with you for the uniform for my son, along with the additional items I ordered. I just wanted to THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your OUTSTANDING service and quick turnaround on this order - - you made a young man EXTREMELY happy on Christmas Day!! He loved the uniform and has actually been wearing the jacket all the time, both indoors and outdoors!! Again, thank you all very much and I wish you continued success with your enterprise. I hope you have a great new year and you have definitely gained another life-long customer! All the best. Adam
12/30/2015: Just wanted to let you know that I got my shell jacket and I love it! Perfectly made. Looking forward to doing more business soon! Happy new year! Paul

12/16/2015: I recently ordered a uniform from your budget line clothing offerings and am overwhelmed with the quality and craftsmanship of the uniform. Usually this level of quality is not expected in something labeled budget line. I have already informed others of your business and my complete satisfaction with your products. Should you need more information please let me know. Dan W., State Commander, Texas Veterans of Foreign Wars, Austin TX
12/10/2015: I received two pair of your budget line confederate pants a few weeks back and I am almost completely satisfied with them. To be specific, I ordered one pair of tuscaloosa grey and one pair butternut jean wool trousers. The only part i was unsatisfied with was the bagginess of the trouser's legs. I would have prefer'd slightly less breathing room for a slimmer look. That being said, I think that the supplies of the Confederate States' armys were quite lacking at the time and the bagginess is probably a result of hasty uniform making in a time of war. So, all in all quit pleased with my purchase! Looking forward to making a few more. Sincerely, Kyle S. of Co. E Hart's Engineers
12/5/2015: Merry Christmas from Dixie. SVC Camp 158 Augusta GA
12/4/2015: The forage cap arrived yesterday. Awesome workmanship and the fit is perfect! You should get on Yelp.com so I can give you a 5 star rating! Thanks, Bill C., Charlotte NC
11/20/2015: Ready for Inspection, Sir.
11/18/2015: I received my goods today. They are everything I hoped for, thanks for all your help and advice. Cheers, Tony D, Sackville North, Australia
11/11/2015: Thank you so much for all your assistance in regard my Union shell jacket. I have received it on November 11 (Aust.Time). The size is perfect! definitely perfect and accurate. I feel very comfortable to wear it, the quality is superb and very very neat! I would love to do more order again soon (Especially another Shell Jacket with similar size and accessories) on next year 2016 and I am very happy to do business with CCSutlery. Thank you so much :) Kindest regards, Herman, Willetton, Western Australia
11/6/2015: Got it all today, thank you very grateful to be able to afford this!! Quality!!!! I love it!!! Thank you so much!!! Michael B., Colonial Heights, VA
11/5/2015: Received my CS Kepi today. Love it. Also still love my Shell Infantry jacket. Now for some paints. Thank you. Tobin B., Augusta, GA.
11/4/2015: My name is Henry and I help with military history at my old High School. I have done WWII but was just asked if I had anything for Civil War. I found your website and ordered a Budget-line Artillery jacket. Man I am blown away with the quality. This jacket even has a fantastic looking lining. If this is the economic one, i can just imagine the good one! When I put on this Jacket I started to remember my mother who passed away many years ago. Growing up in the south Bronx I guess we were the only Latinos listening to Johnny Horten (The Singing American) Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, I look forward to purchasing some more items!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
10/31/2015: I just wanted to say thank you for the products I got from your buisness. I used them to make my kids costumes. I hand stich ed alot of it, but your accessories finished them off. I'm from Philadelphia & my husband WV, so to represent the civil war seemed fitting. I've got my Union soilder, Confederate officer & Scarlett O'Hara. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Nicole W.
10/29/2015: The dress arrived yesterday -- again, many thanks for your great service. Nell J., Raleigh NC.

10/19/2015: FANTASTIC! I received my order a few days ago I cannot be happier, thank you. Ross M., NSW, Australia.
10/18/2015: Just wanted to drop you a quick line or two about my budget line hats I ordered. First great service fast shipping got my order within a week. Ordered a Confederate infantry kepi and union forge cap. And I'll say ordered both as a test too see if they were good and with some effort be made to look passable or just a cheap looking attempt to kind of look authentic. What have I got to loose twenty bucks a hat maybe at best they will look good enough for a mantel display. Folks I have been a reenacting hobby off an on since my teens in the early 80's yes I dated myself lol. These are NICE hats. Great authentic look great feel honestly I have looked at more expensive hats today at a battle in fact. Only difference I saw between a 70 dollar hat and this 20 dollar one is the more expensive one was a little heavier is all. Side by side looked the same. Honestly I like the lighter cause it's cooler and I'm not talking about a big difference in weight hardly noticeable. Liner is soft leather bib is heavy and well made. Buttons are authentic. The wool has a good feel to it. The Confederate hat wool had a ruff feeling and look like home spun more authentic to me. The Union forge cap had the smoother feel to the wool like a well made Union coat again authentic. We all know the Union had the better made uniforms just a fact. Only one small issue the kepi is tight so if you order you may wanna order a size larger but forge cap fit perfect. But it's an easy fix on the kepi so no big deal. Great product guys. Two thumbs up. We all know the start up cost in this hobby is the most expensive time. So if the shirts and uniforms in the budget line are as good as my hats you can't go wrong. Very satisfied very happy and will order more. Great product great service fast shipping nothing at all to complain about. Very satisfied customer. All that's left to say is thanks from Louisiana. Customer for life. Thanks again, Kenneth W.
10/16/2015: I received today the shoes !! excellent. Many thxs. Olivier B., Trelissac France.
10/16/2015: Hello, I received my order for the budget union uniform yesterday, and I noticed the incorrect hat was sent. I'll be sending it back for an exchange. Aside from the mistaken hat, and the back ordered jacket, we are very satisfied with this budget uniform! It's been my husband's dream for years to start reenacting, thank you for making it a more budget friendly hobby! Hannah and Gary M.
10/15/2015: Thank you. I appreciate your getting the order out quickly. We are a small museum and will have an exhibit on The Civil War related to our area in Texas. I appreciate your prompt reply as well. Have a great day, Vickie M., Rockport TX.
10/13/2015 from Facebook: 5 stars. I ordered a pair of union officer trousers and suspenders and they are totally awesome, very nice work...Kevin M.
10/12/2015: Great news about the shirt and, my goodness, thank you for attempting to get the vest out too. I certainly didn’t think that was a possibility so that is over and above. Thank you! Best, Jennifer L. [Making & shipping shirt and vest in time for husband's birthday]
10/11/2015: I recently purchased a union sack coat and a pair of union foot trousers. I'm very pleased with the construction and can't find any fault with the clothing. James B.
10/9/2015: the budget line vest that I got from you is of high quality and I am vary happy with this vest and will do more shopping at your store thank you have a good day Ron S.
10/8/2015: I just received my order from you and it [vest] is just what I am looking for. Bryan S.
10/5/2015: Last month I wrote to you about a sack coat that I ordered which wasn't in stock, and after you telephoned me about what to do with the order, you swiftly sent me my coat which I wore to my first full re-enactment at Huntington Beach's Civil War Days event. The coat was just perfect. And my company was proud enough to have me outfitted proper that I was able to join the color guard for the weekend! It was quit an event and it wouldn't have been as memorable if you all at CC Sutlery hadn't pulled through for me and my absent minded neglect email. This is just a well deserved thank you, from me, for helping me make some new memories and honor a few old ones too. Sincerely, 3rd Reg. Co.E Recruit Kyle S.
10/1/2015: Just a quick note to let you know I am returning the US Shell Jacket with Artillery Red Trim in size 34 for exchange to a 36. The coat fits well all over except in the shoulders. My son is a drummer and needs the movement. As far as the budget-line items. I am very pleased with the quality and workmanship on the items. They are very detailed and are perfect for what we need. I had ordered both the confederate and union items and there weren't any issues with the quality on either. My one comment as far as improvement would be with the belt. One of the pant sizes that I order was a 30, but the holes in the belt are for a much large waste size. We do have a punch and can adjust this, but that would be my only offering for improvement. Overall, I think the quality for the cost was better than expected. I appreciate your time and will definitely order from you in the future as need be. Thank you, Rachel C.
9/26/2015: The uniform just arrived and as an entry level costume I think it's great. I ordered a size larger than I normally would and everything fits as expected with one exception. The shell jacket sleeves are really really long. Am I to roll these up or is the expectation that these would be tailored to fit my arms? Great turnaround on the product and shipping. I would order from you again. Scott P.
9/26/2015 from Facebook: Thanks for the fast shipment , great customer service and prices , look forward to doing business in the future . Bryan S.
9/9/2015: Just sending off a review on your Budget Line uniform as requested. I had ordered the CS Cavalry Kepi and Shell Jacket. For the most part they will do just fine for what I am doing. I do 3rd Pa. Vol. Cav, dismounts, but sometimes our southern brothers are a little short on numbers. So some will throw in to help. I wanted something more than just taking my jacket off, and that's where you filled the bill. Didn't want to spend an arm an leg for something I don't do often. Again you filled the bill. Now on the uniform. The Kepi fits just fine and even looks better than the picture. Shell Jacket also fits fine. The shoulders are a little big, like them zoot suits back in the 40's. In time I'm sure they'll droop down. Did notice a faded area on one of the yellow cuffs. No big deal. I did think though that being a Cavalry Jacket it would have the traditional "C" buttons, not CSA. Like I said though this pair is just fine for what I'll be using them for. Hope I wasn't to nick-picky. Regards, Bucky
9/4/2015: I made a Civil War film last year using all of your uniforms! I would like to share it with you. You are credited at the end. I would LOVE to know what you think! God's Eternal Campground. THANKS again for al of your help! Joey A.
8/26/2015: I received my order of today and was very pleased. We are updating exhibits in one of our museums, the Black Archives Museum, and needed the uniform for display. I was set to order individual budget-line pieces, when I found the US Uniform special-Budget-Line. The special had everything I was looking for at a great price.
For our purposes, I have no cons. It looks great in the room and I am very happy with the pieces themselves and with the speed in which I received the items. (The order was placed on August 21 and was received August 26.) Nothing but positives from this customer! Thank you so much! Sarah E. St. Joseph Museums, Inc., St Joseph, MO.
8/11/2015 from Facebook: 5 stars. I just received my mounted Great Coat... WOW! This thing is amazing! It's gorgeous! Excellent detail and great quality! I can only hope it gets cold enough to wear cause this thing is "warm". Brian P.
7/16/2015:You have probably the best civil war supply web site I've found. Carter S., Las Vegas, Nevada.

6/4/2015: Thank you for making this great outfit for our DAR exhibit in Hudson NY. We had over 200 visitors and 4 school groups as part of the community wide commemoration of the Lincoln Funeral train. I received many questions about it and had done my homework so I could talk about mourning in the 19th century. Thank you again for keeping history alive. Carol B.
5/21/2015: Good evening! Just a quick word to let you guys know that I have received my Custom Officer's Vest and am very happy with it. Your workmanship is excellent, you did everything I wanted and the fit is very good. Many thanks for your help and flexibility. Have a great weekend! Sincerely yours. Kévin C., Quebec Canada
5/21/2015: I'd just like to update you on this. I received my order yesterday and I have to say I'm blown away by the quality of the Kepi that was sent. Thank you so much it's fantastic, I will be sharing this with our group at our next event in 2 weeks and pointing them your way. Very impressed indeed and worth waiting as long as it takes for....Thanks, Mike O.
5/18/2015: Greetings, Once again, you core of great volunteers and some hard-working new troops have joined together to inspire thousands to something new in history. Here is a sampling of photos by Veronica B. As more photos come available, we will send them along. This was an incredible success and I am very proud of everyone's performance. What a great crew. I hope everyone had as much fun performing as we had observing from the truck and float. See you at Spring Mountain Ranch on May 30! Regards, Jim E.
5/10/2015: I had custom order a complete N.Y.S.M Uniform from C&C Sutlery and the quality is 100% in making of the Uniform it was spot on in detail and the pricing was great and not over priced. They work close with me to get all of the details that I needed to have on this Uniform from the buttons to the piping on the jacket I want to thank Greg, Charles and Ellen for being there for me and putting there best foot forward. Thanks from Greg D. 2nd Co. A N.Y.S.M
5/1/2015: The hats are beautiful! We're very pleased. Thank you very much for your nice work. Maurine O., Chagrin Falls, OH.
4/20/2015: Just wanted you to know that I received my pants on Saturday. I was impressed with the quality of the item for the price. Will defiantly be ordering from you again, and I will recommend you to my buddies. Thanks for such speedy service …. Ron M., Hagerstown , Md.
4/9/2015: On Monday, April 6th, I ordered a sack coat and a kepi, budget, grey wool, and with the blue infantry band. I called someone to ask when it would arrive, and he said that with FedEx it would be about 10 days. He then said he could try to squeeze it into a 3-4 day priority mail package, which is already beyond awesome. I called again this guy again today to ask if I could track the number. He looked at my order and gave me the number. Low and behold ... it arrived today! The coat is a bit too big, but that is none of your fault. I just ordered a bit too large. Although, the collar and bands have a nice shade of Inf'y blue, the wool is nice and looks nothing but spectacular. (P.S: His name is Greg, you should totally promote him ... or maybe he is the one who is reading this right now?) Thanks again! - Your future customer again, Judson B. (I said future because I plan to buy another coat, some pants, and maybe some gear)
4/3/2015: Hi, My order arrived today and I am so pleased with your detailed work and expertise... Please count me as a valued customer and reference...I be back ordering more. Best Regards, Robert W.
3/21/2015: I received my order today on the Butterrnut Confederate Sack Coat and Leathers, it looks great! Thank you very much and I will be promoting your Sutlery for good quality items. Again thank you. Chris H.
3/20/2015: Hello, Yes I actually received them the same day I emailed for a tracking number. Thank you for the quick shipping, you will be seeing me again. Melissa C., Fennimore, WI.
3/15/2015: This is a photo taken yesterday of The Sons of Confederate Veterans, Major Thomas J. Key Camp #1920 next to our decorated cannon and trailer at a local St. Patrick's Day parade.
I am on the far left holding the flag, dressed in a uniform which included the trousers, shirt, vest, and suspenders from your budget line. Everything fit very well and blended in with everyone else. I received multiple positive comments on the uniform and the cost.
Thanks again for your customer service and for providing the budget line of uniforms.

3/1/2015 from Facebook: 5 stars. Great people to deal with. Excellent services, HOPE TO DO MORE BUSINESS WITH. THANK YOU, CARLOS T.
2/28/2015: I wanted to send you a note of sincere thanks and gratitude for your awesome customer service and prompt shipment of my order.
On Tuesday, I placed an online order for a pair of trousers, suspenders, a vest, and shirt from your "budget line". I also called to discuss proper sizing and was impressed by the enthusiasm and knowledge of the gentleman I spoke with. On Wednesday, he personally called me twice to discuss a couple of issues (would I accept a pre-washed shirt and a jean-wool vest as the one I ordered was out of stock). He thoroughly explained my options and offered $5 off the shirt price. That's what I call awesome customer service.
I received my order today (only a 4 day turnaround!!) and am very pleased. As you have a very good explanation of the "budget line" and what to expect in its quality, I knew what to expect. Other than a couple of button holes (1 on the shirt and 2 on the vest) needing restitching, the clothing exceeds my expectations and fits well. It will fit my needs for parades, honor guard duty, and festival displays perfectly.
Your company provides a great service to those just getting started, or like me simply wanting to look the proper part, with this budget line of uniforms. Thank you for offering this line and please continue to provide it for those of use not wanting to spend hundreds of dollars. As commander of my local Sons of Confederate Veterans camp, I plan to recommend your company and promote it for our members wanting to get more involved, but not having the money or resources to do so.
Again, my thanks. And please pass along my thanks to the gentleman who took care of my order and provided such great customer service.
Sincerely, Jim T., Shawnee, KS
2/27/2015: Thank you all so much! It looks great, and I'm truly impressed with the quality of the leatherwork. Ya'll do good work!

11/24/2014:Received my order. All is excellent. Many Thanks Greg
10/29/2014: I had been meaning to email you since I got back from the 150th Cedar Creek two weeks ago. I had ordered (at the last minute ) a Federal Greatcoat in Navy blue. If you recall I needed it for an overnight ride where we were not allowed to have any fires and the nights were pretty cold. You told me you would do your best to get it to me in time, and that was going to be tough because you only had 4 weeks to make and ship it. My order arrived the day before I was leaving for the reenactment. The final product was incredible. I was so impressed by the look, quality, and weight of the greatcoat. Numerous fellow reenactors commented on it and I told all the guys in my unit how happy I was with not only the product but the customer service I received. This was my first order with C&C Sutlery, and I can tell you, you have made me a customer for life. I can’t thank you enough for getting order completed in time for me. I will be in touch next month when I order a new shell jacket. Thank you, P. J. F.
10/3/2014: It is nice and it [CS Officer Shell Jacket] fitts l love it thanks....a lot. Rodrigo L.

8/10/2014:We received the jacket and hat really fast. Thank you so much. We are pleased with the quality of a Budget-line Jacket. It is really lovely and is going to look awesome with Ian’s kilt. I look forward to possibly buying the American Made jacket later, if my son gets more into these reenactments. Dana
8/1/2014: I just received the beautiful Sack coat and the belt. I can not thank you enough for your kindness. I understand how much you rushed this order and I am extremely grateful. Sincerely, Debbie S.

7/27/2014: Just a quick note to say that my order arrived safely and all was in order. Some of the extended family have Hoosier roots and the two hats will be made up with the brass insignia to represent the Civil War regiments their forebears served in. Thanks for the good work, MP
7/3/2014: I received the Waltham Pocket Watch. I love it! An excellent watch, a great deal and good price. Thank You. Donald K. PS. I showed it to my friend, Pete. Made him jealous. You will probably be getting an order from him soon.
6/13/2014: First I want to tell you, that I really appreciate your work. We are a small Civil War Reenactment Club here in Switzerland (www.grayghosts.ch) and I already could sell several items of your company to my club friends. And all my friends say that they appreciate the top quality of all your products! And as you told: Great Coat fits and that's the only important thing. Thank you! Thomas W.

2/28/2014: I would like to thank you on behalf of the NYS AOH District One Honor Guard. We have spent the last nine months gathering material and creating our uniforms to recreate the Ancient Order of Hibernian Honor Guards of the past and could not have done so without your superior products. The 1858 Hardee Hats and Irish Harp badges really help bring the uniforms together. Please take a minute to visit our website, www.nysaohhonorguard.com to see some of the images of historical honor guards and see what we are doing. I thank you once again and look forward to doing more business with you soon. Christopher T. Captain, NYS AOH Dist. 1 Honor Guard.
2/27/2014: The two shirts I ordered arrived a few days ago, and I couldn't be more pleased. They are absolutely perfect. Now I'm looking at a wool vest with Federal Eagle buttons ....Thanks again, Bob
2/26/2014: My blue Kepi arrived and I am very happy with it. Having to wait for it to be made was not a problem at all, in fact there is something quaint and old fashioned about that. It is so much nicer than to hear something like "we are waiting for a shipment from China...."Thank you once again and I will enjoy wearing my Kepi for a long time to come. John R., Australia
2/10/2014: I received the [budget line] jean wool infantry jacket and [budget line] pants and I must tell you that the jacket is more than I expected! The jean is very authentic, nice color and texture. Being lighter in weight it will be great for summer. The fit is perfect, nice length in the sleeve and body and loose enough for freedom of movement. Most import jackets are very big in the body short on sleeves and not worth the price they charge, but not so with this one. I also like the light blue tape trim, I have seen a lot of originals with colored tape branch designation (mostly black) so this will be a nice addition to my collection. I must, however, say that I was not so impressed with the pants. The waist and length were good, but the legs were so tight I thought the seams would split! My wife spent some time letting out the inside leg seams and seat seams to make them fit. They are OK now, but not near as nice as your regular C&C quality. I have two pair of your regular trousers and love 'em! I saw on your new web site, too late, that kepi hats to match are available, so I ordered one (I hate paying more shipping). I have attached a couple of photos of original confederate jackets with tape trim and one of me, in my cadet gray colonel's frock coat that you made for me several years ago, for your gallery. Looking forward to doing more business in the future. Yours Truly, Jim W.
2/6/2014:Good afternoon, The shell jacket you made for me (50 x tall with a few modifications) arrived today and it is an excellent item. Thank you for an outstanding job. Jon
1/24/2014: Vonda S.
1/11/2014: Hello, Parker received his Civil War uniform yesterday. I wanted to email you with a big THANK YOU! It fits him and exceeded our expectations. We will be ordering more from your company. Impressive quality. Thanks again, Celia H.
12/28/2013: We are actually using the stuff we ordered for real out here. We're on a very small base in the middle of nowhere in Afghanistan, need chairs and other camp paraphenalia, especially headed into winter and thought it would be great to go with a Civil War theme...not to mention it was a fascinating time in US history! We were thinking here that it might be the first time in a long time Civil War era equipment has been used in a real war...kind of cool in our eyes anyway! ... We received the goods we ordered and thought I would send you some pics of the items in use. I wanted to get creative and recreate some old photos but time and circumstance didn't allow it. I have included some photos of the tableware in use around the camp and a couple of the stainless steel cup "in action". I hope you like them and if I can get some other photos of the chair and lantern in use I will send them to you as well. The meal shots were taken on Thanksgiving with the Afghan National Army Special Forces team we are currently working with. Kind Regards, Dane B.
12/27/2013: Thank you so much for rushing a pair of size 32 pants through for Christmas! My son loved his new pants, and is already talking about the reenactments he is planning to attend during the summer of 2014! John W.
12/13/2013: Just received the left side right hand Walker holster and it is good to go!!! Thanks for everything. Have a Merry Cristmas in Idaho! Gentry T.
12/7/2013: Without a doubt this is the most wondrous St. Nicholas suit I could have imagined, and it is all due to you craftsmanship, quality, and beautiful attention to detail. "He looks like the real Santa." "You are the most authentic Santa I have ever seen!" "What a beautiful outfit." "Santa, I love you coat, it looks soooo warm!" "WOW, that is a tremendous suit." "You look like a Victorian St. Nick from a snow-globe." The superlative go on and on. This is just a small sample of the compliments I have received because of your fine product. Ever the children that are teetering on the edge of disbelief are sometimes pulled back because surely this must be the "Real Santa" after all look at his suit. As you see in the photos I've trimmed the coat and hat in real fur. I like the way it moves, feels and adds to the overall authenticity. Thank you again for such a fine suit I will highly recommend you to any and all. Sincerely yours, Stephen J., Santa House Pittsburgh PA
12/4/2013: A photo of your stainless steel ACW plate and detachable tableware set at the Gettysburg KOA. What you see on the plate is authentic Civil War fare: apples and onions with salt pork, and johnnycakes. It actually tasted good and was a pleasant addition to our weekend stay for an article on the battlefield that my wife did for the KOA Internet blog. My compliments to C&C for your interesting products and your speedy shipment. Best wishes, Jeff G

I appreciate your not charging me, but do you have any idea when you may be getting more in stock? I was probably more excited about that then anything else. Thanks, Dane D.
7/18/2013: I just had to e-mail you and tell you what an outstanding job you did on my CS shell jacket and Kepi; wow, to say the least, its "beautiful" and the fit couldn't be better, almost like I had my own tailor standing next to me. You people put out the best product on the planet. Its been great doing business with you and I know I'll be back. Tell your people, they should be proud of their work! Cheers; Mike M

Once again, I wanna thank you very much. Sincerely, Pvt. Philip A. 30th Indiana.

It says on the invoice that it was drop shipped 4/19 and my Master Card was billed, which I did see on my monthly statement. If you could let me know it would be greatly appreciated. My Camp has many events coming up and I would love to have the musket as soon as possible. I love your service and will continue to use you when I am in need of other things for my Civil War needs.

It makes me think about the ZZ Top song Sharp Dressed Man. Thank you! Mark S.
5/2/2013: Just received the pants; they are great, such quality and workmanship, wow, what a job you folks do. The fit couldnt be better, very classy indeed. I cant wait for the coat you are going to make me. Hopefully you are ready to start on it? Thanks again for such a splendid job. Cheers; Mike M.
4/6/2013: Got my gear today, thanks. Looks terrific! Any good tips for breaking it in a bit before heading into battle looking like I came out of a Tide commercial :-) But in any event, it looks fantastic and I really appreciate the rush so I can get used to it before Chancellorsville. Hopefully I’ll get a few bullets holes in it there so it will be cooler when I get to Gettysburg in July! Best, Pete
3/28/2013: I received my order from you today (125th Anniversary Medal-Gettysburg Battle-1988). I am very pleased with the item. I have been hunting for this item for nearly ten years in antique stores and was unsuccessful until I went on Google and found you. My reason for this need was personal. As an eight year old boy our family spent the week of July 1-7, 1938 attending the 75th Reunion of the Gettysburg Battle. I was fortunate to see over 1600 living Veterans of the battle. I also picked up a ribbon pin souvenir pin of the event. I have been back to Gettysburg many times including the 100th Anniversary in 1963. I picked up an eagle ribbon medal and attended the 125th event but did not find any pins or medals until yours arrived today. I am now involved in an Antique Mall in Gettysburg selling artifacts and relics and will be attending the 150th anniversary in July. I also do Living History of Col. St Clare A. Mulholland, commanding Officer of the 116th Infantry Regt, PV. The three medals I have accumulated are on the Uniform I ware along with his Army of the Potomic Medal. He was also awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor but it would be impossible to get one of them. Thanks again. Richard G.

2/12/2013: Just a quick note to let you know my order arrived today. What excellent service! I only placed the order on the 3rd and here it is. Everything is great as usual. Thanks for the interest you take in serving your customers, we just don't have that in this part of the country. Mark D., BC Canada.
2/7/2013: I just received my duster, after ordering it off your " overstock and returns " section on your web page. Outstanding quality, price, and customer service !! The fit is perfect, my satisfaction complete. Thank you, for another hassle free business transaction. job well done. David D.
2/5/2013: Thank you for your email AND for your phone call last night. Now a days, that thing called Customer Service seems to be nothing more than a “throw away line” for most business’, especially Sutlers. It is so good to deal with a Sutler who still understands the meaning and importance of Customer Service and possibly explains why you are so busy. When I contact a business by email, I do expect to get a response in a timely fashion, even a “we have your request and will get back to you soon”, I suppose I am old fashioned and still believe in being courteous. Not only do you respond to emails, BUT also provide additional information which makes it easier, and more of a pleasure, to do business with you. Getting a personal phone call is, in my opinion, going the extra mile to ensure your customers are happy and that you provide them with exactly what they want, the FIRST time around. Again, this possibly explains why you are so busy. As mentioned, I am old fashioned and rarely (if ever) compliment a business for doing their job. All too many business’s treat their customers with contempt or simply take them for granted. C&C Sutlers does the exact OPPOSITE. I have placed two orders with you guys in the past, and your treatment of me as a customer has not changed, you still provide “old fashioned customer service” and that is why I will continue to do business with you. Your business ethic is beyond reproach, your customer service is exemplary and they are the two traits that I take very seriously, admire and respect. Sincerely, Tony C. PS: In the very near future, I will be placing an order for a Large (Officers) Wall Tent with you. In advance, I would like to ask if that tent can be made (or have added) a “Sod Cloth”.
9/10/2012: My order [Wood Hand Guns and Wood Rifles] arrived today and I am very pleased with the items I purchased. Thank your for your prompt service. Grace K.
7/31/2012: my order arrived a few days ago and everything is present and accounted for, and it all fits well. Thanks for the efficient service. You folks remain my "Civil War Sutler of Choice". Enjoy the rest of your summer. Kind regards, Frank. Founder, Lincoln Learning Group
12/30/2010: I just recieved my uniform and it was perfect. It fit beautifully. I look forward to ordering more from you in the future. Thanks and best wishes, Bill Y.
2/11/2004: Thank you again for a extremely nice product. The greatcoat you made me is perfect. Respectfully yours, Capt. Andrew J., 5th USCT

1/19/2004: Just wanted to let you know The basic CS uniform I purchased is Awesome. The craftsmanship far exceeded my expectations, and this being my first uniform I will be proud to wear it to future reenactments. Very authentic, and along with the leather kit, I really look like a confederate soldier. Thanks so much, Vic R.
1/19/2004: Hi, I have attached a picture of me as J.E.B Stuart. This was at Jackson Mills, WV, which is where Stonewall Jackson grew up as a young boy, on Labor Day weekend 2003. I have a separate attachment just in case you can not get the picture from the email itself. I want to thank you for the fantastic service and help you gave me in getting the 1859 McClellan Saddle and tack to me on time. Every piece was top quality and at very good price!!! You went the extra mile to be helpful and it is very much appreciated. Your attitude towards your customers is very commendable. I look forward to doing more business with you in the future. Alias J.E.B Stuart and I am also Master Sergeant Shaw. Raymond J S
1/17/2004: I just put the order in on your website. Thanks for the info. Just so you know our unit owns a lot of your uniforms. If you look at http://www.currieweb.com/ at the 76th New York Volunteer Infantry you will see us wearing your stuff. If you look at the pics you will see a picture of "Vinny". The corporal trousers I am ordering are for Vinny. The uniform in the picture is made by you. Steven R. C.
1/17/2004: You always come through big time for me. The workmanship is top of the line. I especially appreciate your attention to detail, that makes your uniforms so exceptional. The Uniform that Stonewall Jackson is wearing in my painting " In the Presence of His Maker " was custom made for me by C&C Sutlery. Thanks, Ron Lesser Website: www.ronlesser.com
1/12/2004: I just wanted to drop you a line and say Thank You so very much for the Union Major's uniform that I ordered from you early last year. I had looked over and over again for a uniform in the larger sizes, but no other Sutler carried anything close. Not only was your uniform top-flight, but the prices were ten times more reasonable than any other sutler. Additionally, with your uniform, I recently won First Place in a Costume Competition in Yuma for Old West Reenactors, of which I've attached a picture. So thanks again! I'm sure I'll be ordering some Old West clothes from you very soon!!! CHARLES L
