  • Description

Finally, we are able to offer a great hand-bound reproduction of McClellan's Bayonet Exercise. Before the Civil War began, George McClellan traveled to France to study that country's military. He transcribed their bayonet exercises into what became the standard United States Army manual for the bayonet. In Kautz's Company Clerk, he mentions 5 books that were issued to officers. Those 5 were Tactics (Casey's), Regulations, Bayonet Exercise, Outpost, and Target Practice. We currently offer three of these, and eventually hope to have all 5 in production. This outstanding work contains 106 pages and 25 plates (illustrations). A must have for any Union officer, now available once again. Don't put that modern-looking bayonet exercise in your camp, display a fine reproduction, hand bound just like the originals.

Hello,

The Sharps labels are copies of the labels found in Echoes of Glory, Arms and Equipment of the Union page 46. Since I print all my labels, I can put 54 on there if you wish. Just mention it in the comments when you order the labels. Thanks for asking. Bob

John,

The Sharps rifles at the time were 52 caliber. The modern reproductions are 54 to match modern made ammo.
