Confederate "Dog River" Sword

Confederate “Dog River” Sword

This is a Confederate (CSA) saber or sword known as the “Dog River” model.  Not much is known about these historic edge weapons.  I think many souvenirs like this ended up in scrap medal drives for later wars.  Often discovered “up north” because the Yankees took them home as a war trophies.  American boys have always loved collecting!  Some things never change.
