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.
