The masterpiece sword of Confederate General Paul J. Semmes is a remarkable object by Ames Sword Company demonstrating the outstanding craftsmanship possible in 19th century America.
Mortally wounded at the Wheatfield during the Battle of Gettysburg, Semmes asked for two things on his deathbed: his bible and THIS silver clad presentation sword. Readily one of the most significant weapons RIAC has ever offered, what will it bring as it crosses the podium?
