Harry Ridgeway has been kind enough to provide the greatest reference available for Civil War relic identification. If this were a book, it would probably be a limited addition, and sell for well over $100. Mr. Ridgeway’s knowledge is astounding, and the fact that he would provide this information online to assist relic hunters at no cost tell you all you need to now about the man. Here is an index:
