This shop is really more like a museum where you can buy stuff. There were some really high quality artifacts from the Civil War era including swords, rifles/muskets, handguns, artillery rounds, uniforms, etc... you could probably find anything you wanted. The store is well-organized and clean. I was not approached by anyone asking if I was looking for anything in... More

I have been coming to this store for over two years and never have had a negative experience. There is a wide variety of artifacts to look at that range from the Civil War but WWII and WWII as well. There is also a variety of books to browse which many bookworms will find intriguing. The staff is always friendly... More

Took a stroll through. Lots of old guns and swords and artifacts for sale. High end store with quality merchandise. Very clean and well kept. If you are looking for something specific I am sure you can get it there

I purchased a antique Remington percussion revolver-realized after further research I did not get the correct Federal Army issue of the time (Civil War of course), they gave me full value back on trade- in for correct pistol. Fantastic place to learn and shop. We will do more biz in future!

Literally a museum where you can actually purchase items for your own collection. Shopkeepers are experts; historians; and brilliant!

We recently visited Gettysburg and spent time browsing through a handful of antique shops looking over interesting Civil War artefacts, paraphernalia and other items associated with the war era. The Horse Soldier was by far the most organised, comprehensive and interesting place we found. This shop has has four showrooms of well displayed and labeled Civil War artefacts, allowing you...

Do you have an artifact that you think may be from the uS Civil War?.........go to the Horse Soldier on Steinwher Ave.......Have it authenticated and know you own a piece of history.........You don't?.......You can purchase authentic items right there in the store.
