| Our reproduction items are more than just looks-like, they are authentic replicas made as closely as possible to the original
item. They are carefully manufactured using materials that match as closely as possible to the original items. We use patterns made from original items; patterns
that are modified to be historical not only in look, but construction; or patterns that we have made from drawings, pictures or paintings. Many of our items have
been purchased by museums (well known and not so well known) for display and/or for use by docents and historical interpreters.
Clothing and Uniforms Most of our men's replica clothing and uniforms are made for us by the Quartermaster Shop, although some items
are manufactured by us or elsewhere. The ladies and childrens attire is mostly made by us. Almost any style of clothing that was worn in the United States during
the 19th Century (1800s) (starting from the 1820's on, including Victorian, Edwardian, American Civil War, Indian Wars. Old West and Spanish American War (Span-Am))
Other Items (accessories, accouterments, camp equipment, leathergoods, tents, tinware, etc.) are mostly purchased from other makers,
although some are made by us. In many cases we have mutiple suppliers of items, to assure the we can always have them available.
