Artifacts & Museum
Reference Key &
Welcome to the Sutler
of Fort Scott.
With over 40 years of experience in
collecting authentic Civil War items, making museum quality reproductions,
and Living History, our commitment is to the history of the common soldier
in this pivotal era of America's legacy. On our artifact side we are
committed to accuracy in identification and competitive pricing, enabling
the average collector to secure historic items and yet still keep peace on
the home front. We will regularly feature artifacts on the site from our
extensive inventory as well as publish our quarterly catalog averaging
about 100-125 items each. If you would like to receive it directly via PDF
please send us your e-mail address.
Personal items and CW era
material culture common to life experience is our specialty.
This is a neglected area of collecting and very
important to the legacy of the soldiers sacrifice, as well as that of his
family. These are the items that soldiers carried because they wanted
to, not because it was required. These are the items that were of value
that transcended their service and epitomizes the character and experience
of the citizen soldier and his family. Remember, just as many personal and
home front items of the Civil War era were made before the war as during
it, especially durable goods. Our inventory of items accurately reflects
our reproduction side we are likewise committed to reasonable pricing
without the sacrifice of historical authenticity and quality.
Having handled literally thousands of artifacts on the other side of our
business, we have had a rare opportunity to develop and research for your
benefit. We have chosen a limited number of unique, or uniquely valued
items, for your Living History experience. We are not Quartermasters, we
are sutlers. No government issue items are available from us. We limit our
offerings to personal items, commercial contract military goods, and
officers quality regalia.
Our forte is in the development and
manufacture of museum
quality packaging and labeling.
Our aim is that the opening of our
packaged goods will be a authentic Living History experience in and of itself. We
encourage you to even take them in the field unopened or at least still
wrapped and re-sealed, and share the opportunity with your fellow
soldiers. We plan to soon provide period "express" packaging service on
entire orders to be used in camp and Living History demonstrations. Our
individual item packaging techniques are based on common period practice
or observation of actual originals. Our labels are either facsimiles of
originals or museum quality composites designed and manufactured by us
based on historical styles and examples and bearing researched names,
products, and advertising of documented CW era manufacturers. All of our
created labels bear a mark identifying them to us and are copyrighted. We
appeal to your sense of 19th century morality and civility in assisting us
in the honoring of our efforts on your behalf.
serious commitment to customer service and satisfaction
Due to this commitment our
reproduction inventory will be sold on an "in stock" basis with a rotating
list of items as certain item's stocks are depleted. We will make every
effort to restock popular items as soon as we are able. Thank you for your
YOU, and GOD BLESS OUR BELOVED NATION.
