Very interesting. Thanks for sharing!


Interested in buying Civil War items, especially cloth items. Also interested in Civil War and pre-Civil War muskets, musket parts even if they've "seen better days".

That is a story I never even thought possible. An American Civil War veteran killed in action in WW1 serving with the Germans. I enjoyed this piece of history.


Always looking for WW1 28th Division; anything, papers, field gear, uniforms, etc.

Incredible! Any idea what unit this guy was in in the Great War, I'm imaging he was in the Landsturm.
