Confederate Knapsacks
Our Confederate Knapsacks are faithful reproductions of original knapsacks. Years of research and study of many original examples have gone into perfecting our historically correct reproductions. The hardware is faithfully reproduced to match original hardware. We do not use poorly made mass produced hardware. The knapsacks are made of only the best material and leather to exactly match orginal examples.  The bags have fine hand sewn details. We use only top grade leather sewn with waxed linen thread for our straps.
 
The one place we deviate from the original bags is the coating. 

No, We Do Not Use Period Paint Recipes

YES! We use a latex base coating on all our knapsacks

and haversacks. Missouri Boot & Shoe Company made

a conscious decision not to use period paint due to fire

and health hazards both to our ourselves and to our

customers.

 

Boiled Linseed Oil is a main ingredient

in “period paint recipes.” It contains

lead, arsenic, beryllium, chromium,

cadmium and nickel. These elements

are toxins, carcinogens and teratogens

Single Bag Knapsack            

                     "Mr. Knapsack's Confederate Companion"

This is our absolutely historically correct copy of the Confederate singlebag knapsack .  The hand sewn cotton canvas bag is finely stitched and has hand made button holes and period correct buttons. Cloth herringbone twill tape ties hand sewn onto the bag close the fold over pocket of the knapsack. The russet leather harness is made of top grade leather and with historically correct 1 1/4 inch roller buckles. The leather is dyed with a period dye to a beautiful deep russet color.The bag is coated with the same non-toxic coating as our Federal Double Bag for your protection. Our bags can provide the owner with years of service if properly cared for.

The Isaac and Campbell Knapsack

The Isaac and Campbell Knapsack

 

Our Isaac and Campbell knapsack is a faithful

copy of the originals. The original knapsacks

were manufactured by the Isaac and Campbell

Company in London and brought into the U. S.

by the Confederacy.                    

 

Our detailed historically correct copy features

hand sewn details and cloth herringbone twill

tape ties that are used to close the fold pocket

on the knapsack. The russet leather harness is

made of top grade leather and with historically

correct 1 1/4 inch roller buckles.

 

The corners of the cloth bag are protected by

bridle leather corner guards as were the original

knapsacks. The leather harness is colored with

a period dye giving it a rich russet color. The bag

is coated with the same non-toxic coating as all

our knapsacks and haversacks. 

 

Upon request we will stamp the white cloth inside

the bag with one of the Isaac and Campbell markings

found on examples of originals. Since some do not

want the marking on their bags we do not put the

stamping on unless requested to do so.

"Mr. Knapsack" at age 35
 

These pictures are of a bag we made over

35 years ago! It was sent in a few years ago

for some repair work by one of our valued

customers. He reported using it heavily

over the years and just wanted to get it

"dressed up" to use many more years.

It is STILL in the Field Today.

 

But you must care for your bag and not

abuse it if you want similar results.
