Vintage Checkers and Game Field Storage bag
While the oldest known Checkers artifact unearthed in Iraq dates back to 3000 BC, the earliest known version of the game comes from a game called Alquerque, which was played in ancient Egypt in 1400 BC. After years of being played the Egyptian way, in 1100 AD, a Frenchman adapted it to be played on a Chessboard with 12 pieces per player.
Then, in 1756 an English mathematician created official rules for the game, and in 1840 was the start of the very first World Championships. Arthur Samuel then created a computerized Checkers program in 1952, which helped turn Checkers into the global phenomenon it is today.
Will include 24 game pieces and 1 storage bag. Field storage bag is large enough for you to store all your games in one place.
Please note colors and style will vary.

This excellent article by Bob Sullivan for Writing with the Quill Pen will get you started. Below are some excerpts:
The Writing Pressure
LIGHT, LIGHT, LIGHT!!! Hold the quill as if writing and make small circles with it on the back of your other hand (Try this without ink. :) ) When you can make slight indentations on your hand without leaving a slight scratch mark, you are using the proper pressure to write. The pressure most of us use to write with today is way, way, too hard to use with a quill.
Use a good calligraphy ink. DO NOT USE INDIA INK WHEN USING A QUILL! India ink has too strong an adhesive quality, and will not flow freely from a quill...Actually, I recommend that you do not use powdered ink when starting out. Go to an art store and ask for calligraphy ink."

Ingredients: saponified olive and coconut oils, lard, water. Discontinue use if adverse reaction occurs.
C&C Sutlery bar soap does not contain lye. Early bar soap has been called "grandma's lye soap". Soap must be made with alkali, often referred to as "lye". Back in the day when Grandma made soap she didn't have access to a lye calculator so she had to guess how much lye to use in her soap. That often resulted in what is called a "lye heavy" soap. With the use of a modern lye calculator, our handcrafted soap has no lye in the final product. The lye has reacted with the oils completely to result in in a beautiful, pure soap.

This Fife is correct for the Civil War period. It is used by both CS and US forces. The bugle is made of maple with brass ends. It is about 16 1/2"" long.
During the Civil War, the fife was one of the main musical instruments that were a part of the battlefield, and others used in camp. Some regiments had full bands for use in parades and as entertainment away from the battlefield.
The fife was an old instrument, basically a flute with a limited range of notes, and useful on the battlefield because it was pitched so high that its sound carried over many of the sounds of battle.

This is the Indian Wars pistol cartridge pouch for the M1873. Nearly identical to the American Civil War Cap Box, except with US in oval embossed on the flap. This economical cap box features an interior lining, brass finial, 2 belt loops on the back and is sewn in white thread.
Started life as a Civil War pattern pouch, was probably unissued, and was then recycled for use during the Indian Wars era. The originally had a wood block to hold the cartridges, but most troopers took them out so the cartridge box would hold a few more cartridges.
The Civil War Blakeslee Spencer Quick Loader Cartridge Box is designed for the Spencer Carbine. Because of the rapid speed that a Spencer carbine could be fired, a special box needed to be designed to hold cartridges for loading. Erasmus Blakeslee patented this box late in 1864. U.S. Government contracts for over 30,000 boxes were delivered to the War Department but few were used in the Civil War due to time delays of production and distribution.
This box contains 6 tin tubes encased in a bored wood block. The wood block is wrapped in smooth black bridle leather with a hinged leather lid to protect the open tops of the tin tubes from the elements. The box is worn over the shoulder on the left side. The leather shoulder strap attached to the box holds the device close to the trooper's left side. This arrangement allows the soldier to reach across with his right hand, flip open the 'Quickloader' box lid, draw out a single magazine tube filled with seven cartridges and insert the bullets into the stock of the Spencer weapon. The box has an implement pouch just like the originals, include the shoulder sling, and has a belt loop on the back.
Available for BOTH .44-40 ammunition OR .56-50 ammunition. The .44-40 will fit .45 Long Colt ammunition.
The box is available in black leather only and measures approximately 13 inches longs and 2 inches by 3 inches wide.

Circlet Rank Insignia
The regulation overcoat for officers was a dark blue while that for the enlisted men was light blue. This was no problem for the peacetime army, but in wartime it made targets of the officers. In 1861 officers were permitted to acquire mounted enlisted men's overcoats. Shoulder straps were not worn on overcoats and adding sleeve braid would be difficult in the field. Worn on the sleeve of the Sky Blue Great Coat just above the cuff. Circlets appear in the Schuyler, Hartley and Graham catalog and were worn by some officers to indicate their grade. Another example of an original can be seen in Don Troiani's Soldiers in America. Also examples of officers wearing them under there coat lapel has been noted.
The circlet reappears around 1867 in the Indian Wars on the Frontier though these also do not appear in the U.S. Army Regulations and photos show that they were worn on the sleeve of the Sky Blue Great Coat just above the cuff
