Civil War Bayonet & Civil War Scabbards

The bayonet got its name from the French word baïonnette, after Bayonne, a town of France and where this weapon was first made.

1855 1861 Springfield Civil War Bayonet and Scabbard

1855 1861 Springfield Civil War Bayonet and Scabbard is an 1855/1861 Model Springfield Rifle Bayonet and scabbard. This beautiful carbon steel antique reproduction is made to fit various US manufactured .58 muskets and the 50-70 Springfield Trapdoor Rifles prior to 1873. This particular type of socket bayonet was originally manufactured or modified from the period of 1855 to about 1872 and was the forerunner to the US Model 1873 Trapdoor Springfield 45-70 series bayonets. The Springfield Rifled Musket is generally associated with the Union Army. The matching bayonet scabbard features authentic hand-hammered copper rivets, brass frog, heavy stitched black leather and measures 18 inches long, while the Springfield Bayonet itself measures 21 inches long overall with 18 inch blade, 3 inch socket length, and ~.79 inch internal muzzle ring diameter. Civil war bayonet and scabbard weigh just over 1lb. The model 1855/1861 Springfield bayonet was arguably the most commonly used bayonet during the Civil War and a must have for Civil War Reenactors and collectors.

Typical Civil War Bayonet.
Civil War Bayonet

Typically, Civil War Bayonets were used on most infantry rifles from both armies. The bayonet would attach to the muzzle end of a rifle or musket. During the Civil War, hospitals were full of wounded soldiers but records show that very few men were treated from wounds they received from the Civil War bayonet. The conclusion was that Civil War bayonets were not considered a lethal weapon. The explanation probably lay in the fact that opposing soldiers did not often actually come to grips and, when they did, were more likely to use their rifles as clubs.
