Civil War Boots



Civil War boots

These appear to be model 1851 Artillery Driver's boots that were issued to Light Artillery personnel, but later issued to enlisted cavalry troops during the Civil War (later to be replaced by the model 1872 boot). They appear to be unissued or very lightly used. The size number, 5, is still strongly stamped into the heels. The wooden peg construction is clearly visible and in excellent condition. There is some damage due to later dry rot. One pull tab is damaged and a number of tears, which have been repaired - please see the pictures to view these areas. They measure 13 1/2" tall and 9 1/2" long (heel to toe), 3 1/2" wide. A beautiful pair of scarce boots.
