      Ha, the Union doesn’t have the “inbred” stereotype. I believe the south does. Correct me if I’m wrong but they won the war didn’t they?

      The state with the most inbreeding would also be the northernmost state. Alaska, so eat a dick.

    I didn’t think they ever used the oval “CS” one on the top left.

      If you’re a collector refer to Mullinax’s book #105. It was mainly used in the western theater from 1863-1865.

      And to Fratallee Holloway, they’re all purchased from various places over the last 14 years. The Civil War trader’s show in Nashville, The Horse Soldier and Union Drummer Boy in Gettysburg, Dent “Wildman” Myers shop in Kennesaw (if you haven’t heard of him look him up), and other shops throughout Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee and Georgia.

      The oval “CS” was actually the most common belt buckle on the battlefield. However, that is not the oval “CS” on the top left. If i’m not mistaken, that is the rounded-corner “CS” buckle. I am not saying his is fake at all, but that buckle is one that is most commonly found to be fake. This is due to the fact that they were all made in different sizes because individuals made them. That is an mpressive collection, Beam and Cope.

      The most commonly used belt buckle was not in fact the oval “CS,” however it did see heavy use in the western theatre in the late war stage, 63-65. More prevalent were regular brass sheet buckles, or a state buckle. The abundance of the CS ovals is due to a late war push to attempt to better outfit and make more uniform the Army, both in the east and west, however not many of the ones that were made were ever able to be used because of the abrupt end to the war in 65. not trying to start an argument, just saying…and yes. It is an impressive collection.

      Anyone with true “heritage” (or a true southerner for that fact) knows that it is disrespectful to call it the Civil War. “War Between the States” is what we call it, fucking liberal.

      it might be “disrespectful”, but it was a civil war, therefore it was the Civil War.

      rainbowsociety, while I’m not some agressive Yankee hater who can’t admit that the south lost, the war was not, in fact, a civil war by the conventional definition. A civil war would be two or more groups vying for control of one territory. What is commonly called the American Civil War was in fact a failed war of Independance.
