sword, including more than 300 Union and Confederate regulation swords, 45 swords presented to Union and Confederate
generals, 40 Union and Confederate presentation-grade swords, 60 Union and Confederate swords engraved with the owners'
names, and 150 Union and Confederate identified presentation swords along with the presentee's Civil War records. A
fantastic chapter on the Civil War activities of Gen. George Armstrong Custer includes more than 30
never-before-published photos of Custer's presentation sword, dress uniform and personal equipment captured by
Confederate cavalry at the Battle of Trevilian Station. The appendix provides additional little-known details on the
