Haversack Revolutionary War Tapestry Bag


Out of stock

Product Description

Backpacks were not available to the minute men and the militia of  the American Revolution.  What was common was a shoulder bag called a haversack.  The men would frequently make them themselves out of any material they could get their hands on.  Canvas was common, many times from old sails, and tapestry bags were also popular, made from old rugs or curtains. The soldiers would frequently have several bags, as this was the only way they had to carry items.

This bag is a tapestry haversack, hand sewn with a lining.  It features a pigskin leather flap and wooden buttons and has a woven  strap. It measures 10″ wide and 13″ deep.  The strap is 48″ long and 1 1/4″ wide.
