North Carolina Confederate “CORN PONE” Cavalry Sword

North Carolina Confederate “CORN PONE” Cavalry Sword

Although most artifacts posted on my site are 20th century a fine Southern sword adds considerable historical value to the page.

Fine original North Carolina Confederate “CORN PONE” Cavalry Sword with its original sheath that Civil War collector, researcher and author William A. Albaugh III called “As Southern as Corn Pone and Molasses” and named this style sword “Confederate Corn Pone Sabre”…There is evidence to suggest that this style sword was an early product manufactured by the Confederate States Armory in Kenansville, North Carolina …This sword is attributed to a North Carolina soldier from Moore County North Carolina…Blade and mounts have a very old thin lacquer coating that served as a protective film over the years. I will leave it as found and the next owner can decide how best to conserve it.
