American Civil War

The American Civil War took place across the continental United States from 1861 to 1865. The war began when eleven Southern states seceded from the Union to form the Confederate States of America in protest of the emancipation of slaves. The division of the states led to a wide range of weaponry, uniforms, and currency that are now items for collectors.

Historians with an interest in the American Civil War are some of the most avid collectors. These antiques allow collectors to reconnect with a unique part of American history.


Quick Facts

  • The American Civil War had a death toll of over 600,000 men, the most costly war in terms of human life in American history
  • The Confederate 1,000 dollar bill is the one of the rarest pieces of currency ever created, as only 607 were ever printed
  • Both armies that fought in the Civil War utilized rifles from around the world, including French, Austrian, Prussian, and Belgian firearms
