|Take on the spirit of the Civil War with this spectacular 43 inch behemoth of a sword. Wield the same item of a union or confederate general with this official US Calvary sword. Inspired by 1860's culture and society, this swords blade is forged from tempered carbon steel and is engraved with a wonderful patriotic and floral design that varies from leaf-like arrangements to flags and eagles. Each side of the blade has a different detailed engraving. Wrap your fingers around the leather handle and surround your hand with the 100 percent real brass handguard- also designed beautifully. This sword comes complete with a brass, silver-finished scabbard with two hanging rings to make display of this piece of history an easy task.
