Around the web: Two Rebel Haversacks


On the Adolphus Confederate Uniforms site are two haversacks in the Florida Confederate Museum Collection of Richard Ferry. Not only are there photos but also diagrams with measurements of the haversacks.

The quartermaster-made haversack comes from the Goulding family.



A small bag sewn inside of the bag with a drawstring closure.

This haversack was scavenged from the Olustee battlefield by Federal soldiers in the wake of Colonel Hawley’s charge against the Confederate line, February 20, 1864.




More information about the history and construction of these bags can be found at Adolphus Confederate Uniforms.
