The Isaac and Campbell Knapsack
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.
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
1 1/4 inch roller buckles.
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.
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.
