Common Civil War Weapons

Aside from the vast political and historical implications of the Civil War itself, this war is sometimes referred to as the first "modern" war, in reference to the technology it was fought with. Not only were advances in medicine (morphine) and communications (the telegraph) of drastic importance but the introduction of early repeating weapons, ironclad warships and the rifling of gun barrels (among many other weapon developments) were intrinsic in fighting the American Civil War. Perhaps most vital to the war and its ultimate conclusion however was mass production: the ability of firearms and ammunition manufacturers to churn out huge orders of weapons had been speeded immeasurably since the inculcation of the Industrial Revolution.

Civil War soldiers and officers alike carried some type of blade, whether it was a sword, sabre or bowie knife. Colt firearms featured heavily in the Civil War, particularly the Colt 1851 Navy revolver, the Colt M1861 Navy revolver and the Colt Dragoon revolver. The Remington Model 1858 was another revolver popular with the troops. Among shoulder-arms the most commonly used rifle was the Springfield Model 1861, a Minié-type rifled musket respected for its range, accuracy and reliability. Early in the war it was common to see some Confederate forces using shotguns and hunting rifles due to the lack of military weapons available.
