Gifts for the Civil War Buff

The Civil War means different things to different people. Some obsess about the battles and famous generals and strategy. Others, like me want to document their ancestor’s experience and learn what it was like for him. Some buffs like to wear the uniforms and attire of the war era and act out the events.

If you have a Civil War buff on your gift list, you might wonder what they would love for Christmas. What would make their eyes light up as they remove the ribbons and wrapping paper?

To help you out with this, I’ve compiled a Gift Guide for Civil War Buffs.

You can read soldiers’ diaries and letters about Christmas Day in the Civil War. Don’t miss my web page on Christmas during the Civil War as well.
