Re: [civilwarwest] U.S. Army dog tent question
- Are you a reenactor? If you are, don't get dog tent poles! They were rarely issued and it was just an encumbrance to the soldiers. If want to find out more about them just becuase (which is very OK), than buy a copy of The Federal Civil War Shelter Tent by Frederick C. Gaede. Also to find out information without spending money you could do a search on the internet, or go to www.haversackdepot.com or www.cjdaley.com and they have some info on this (they both sell these poles) its good info to know even if it was rare though.RE

lengths of the poles, and how they fit together. Any help would be greatly
