The Collector’s Show – The Collectors Show for the week of December 16, 2013 Civil War and Militaria Collecting

If you read Confederates In The Attic, you may be ready to grasp the interest and industry that is the American Civil War. We have someone with us this week that has a front row seat to re-enactments, and the passion that this conflict still evokes from people several generations removed from it. Melanie Thomas is an antique dealer, columnist and expert on the Civil War “militaria” and particularly the battle of Gettysburg. Melanie has nearly 20 years of experience researching, buying and selling military memorabilia.
