The Atlanta Arsenal Cartridge Box and Cap Pouch

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 emplyed nearly 5,500 men and women. Atlanta Arsenal accoutrements are good for a western Confederate impression.

About the markings:  Specimens are

known with 1862 and 1863 dates.  An

arced stamp is observed on the original

cap pouch while straight line stamps

have been found on the cartridge box

inner flaps.

Atlanta Cartridge Box
The Atlanta 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.

sewn with hand waxed linen thread and has a
hand applied period finish. Tins are included at no
extra charge.

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 link at right.)

 

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.

          Cartridge Box

 

C. S. Arsenal Baton Rouge La. Arsenal

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 boxes,

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.
