Atlanta Arsenal Set

The Atlanta Arsenal in Atlanta, GA was a major supplier of materiel to the Confederate Army. It produced both ammunition, accoutrements and materiels. In 1863-64 the Atlanta Arsenal employed nearly 5,500 men and women. A good western Confederate impression should always  contain  a set  of Atlanta accoutrements.

 

The Atlanta Set Includes 

Cartridge Box utilizes the imported British cartridge box finial.  The black square flapped box has two tins, shoulder and waist belt loops.  Optional tool pouch.  It is theorized that the tool pouch may have been dispensed with in favor of saving leather.  The theory being that only sergeants were issued boxes with tool pouches.  Remember this is a theory only(Specify with or without tool pouch) The box is made of top grade leather, hand sewn with hand waxed linen thread and has a hand applied period finish. Tins are included at no extra charge.  

Cap Box copied from an original specimen made of top grade leather
Hand sewn with hand waxed thread and finished out with a hand applied
period finish. It is marked on the outer flap with the diminutive Atlanta
Arsenal stamp. The turned brass finial is shaped distinctively and is
specially made for this item.
Atlanta Waist Belt and Rectanglular Plate. Belt  made of top grade leather and
custom sized to your measuremnts. Hand sewn,with period finish hand applied. The belt comes
complete with a Rectangular C.S.A. cast brass belt  plate.   Send your waist measure over your
uniform coat.You MUST SEND this measurement for us to correctly make your belt for you.

Shoulder Belt this narrower shoulder belt fits the Atlanta Cartridge Box the best. It is a Confederate shoulder belt, cut slightly narrower than the U.S. version. Made of top grade leather with period finish hand applied.

Bayonet Scabbard while you may combine any of our Confederate
scabbards with the Atlanta Arsenal set. However, it is rumored that Atlanta produced a scabbard not unlike that made in Richmond that had a lead ball in the tip.  Remember, hearsay isn't documentation.  The Richmond Scabbard has a lead ball in the tip and comes with this set. If you prefer another scabbard please specify which one you want with your set.

C. S. Arsenal Baton Rouge

 

 At the time Louisiana seceded from the Union on January 26, 1861, the United States Arsenal at Baton Rouge had been in the hands of state forces just over two weeks.  By the Spring of 1861 the arsenal was under control of the Confederate government.  Richard Lambert, Military Store Keeper, was in command and was assisted by Capt. J. C. Booth.

 

Through the spring and fall of 1861 Lambert and Booth purchased about 3,000 sets of Accoutrements from the New Orleans firm of Magee, Horter & George.  With an eye towards augmenting these supplies, Lambert, in May and June of 1861 purchased 76 sides of bridle leather as well as sixteen saddlers stitching horses.  The C. S. Arsenal likely remained in operation until the fall of Baton Rouge on May 28, 1862. (View copies of the original Magee, Horter & George invoices by clicking on the Invoice icon below.)

 

During its brief operation it supplied ordnance stores and ammunition to Confederate troops at Pensacola, Florida.  In addition distinctive sets of accoutrements were produced utilizing a waist belt with a fork tongue frame buckle.

C. S. Arsenal Baton Rouge Accoutrement Set 

 

C. S. Arsenal Baton Rouge La. Arsenal Set is a copy of an original

accouterment set consisting of Cartridge box, cap pouch, and waist belt  with fork tongue frame buckle. 

 

The cartridge box has waist belt loops only. This box was based on the measurements for the  U.S. pattern of March 1857.  Roughly speaking, a .58 caliber box that is about one-half inch short. 

 

We were the first to reproduce these sets, our copies were viewed by the owners of the original and judged first rate.  I was told that  Confederate made ammunition such as the .58 Gardner bullet fits perfectly in the tins.

 

There are two styles of cap pouch, either square flap or copy of the 1850 and both have double waist belt loops.  Choose one when ordering (Send your waist measure over your uniform coat.)
