    Photo Curiosity, 1840 Light "Horse" Artillery Saber

    Looking to see if anyone has seen any period photos or documentation on Confederate Soldiers carrying the 1840 Light "Horse" Artillery Saber, or variants. I have seen tons of photos with Confederate Enlisted and Officers carrying 1840 Dragoon, and what appears to be 1860 model sabers, but can't recall any of the Artillery version. I know that Ames had produced some 20,000 from 1845 to 1865 and was just curious.

    I've seen a few records of "Light Artillery" Sabers being issued to C.S. units. The C.S. Arsenal at Columbus Mississippi had 170 of them in store there in Aug. of 1862, along with over 500 "Heavy Artillery" Swords.
