A Tribute Honoring and Remembering The Confederate Cause And Those Who Fought So Valiantly For The Cause
Today, many generations after the guns of war were silenced at Appomattox, the enduring legacy of the Civil War continues to capture our imagination. All across the Civil War theatre, battlefields are revered and heroes exalted. Major battles are re-enacted, and countless museums hold artifacts and exhibits from a period of unfathomable suffering and sacrifice. Among these museums, one in particular stands tall – The Museum of the Confederacy.
America Remembers is proud to honor the enduring excellence of one of the world’s foremost military and educational museums with The Museum of the Confederacy Tribute Pistol. Featuring highly detailed artwork in 24-karat gold and nickel, the famed LeMat Civil War era sidearm pays homage to the Museum’s legacy and that of three of the Confederacy’s most beloved leaders.
With the outbreak of the Civil War, leaders of both the Confederate and Union forces hurriedly worked to arm their respective troops, and the era ushered in all types of new weaponry. Perhaps the most unique weapon introduced during the Civil War was the LeMat – part revolver, part shotgun – and one of the most awesome military sidearms ever produced. The innovative revolver was the favorite of several legendary Confederate leaders, including Cavalry General J.E.B. Stuart.
The LeMat revolver was a truly unique firearm design, and is closely associated with the Confederacy, since it was first utilized by soldiers who fought for the Confederate States of America. The Museum of the Confederacy Tribute Revolver combines the classic design of the fabled LeMat revolver with striking 24-karat gold and nickel artwork honoring the legacy of the Confederate soldiers and their leaders who valiantly fought for the cause of the Confederacy.
This is America Remembers’ first-ever issue on a LeMat revolver which we are issuing with the approval and authorization of The Museum of the Confederacy.
The frame of the Tribute is adorned with images of the Civil War, with the original Confederate flag displayed within a field of scrollwork, and the “CS”, or Confederate States, belt buckle proudly shown. The official crest of the Museum of the Confederacy is also featured, among a wedge of matching scrollwork.
Highly detailed artwork of 24-karat gold with blackened patinaed accents adorn the Tribute’s frame, cylinder and barrel. The LeMat’s unique nine-shot cylinder holds the portraits of three of the confederate’s favorite sons – President of the Confederacy Jefferson Davis, famed Confederate General Robert E. Lee, and General J.E.B. Stuart, the Civil War’s most gallant Cavalry leader who, with his trusted LeMat Revolver, wreaked havoc upon Union Forces. The portraits of these brave leaders are captured in oval cameos and surrounded by flowing scrollwork and crossed rifles of the Confederate Infantry.
Along the right side of the barrel, the issue is identified as “The Museum of the Confederacy Tribute” in a classic banner tipped in matching scrollwork. Each Tribute’s individual edition number is featured on top of the barrel near the sight.
Your Museum of the Confederacy Tribute Revolver will arrive in a luxuriously lined custom display case with an engraved brass identification plaque.
As the first-ever handgun issued by America Remembers to be officially authorized by the Museum of the Confederacy, we expect demand for this exquisite revolver to be extremely high. Only 500 of the Tributes will ever be produced, and will be available only from America Remembers. Reservations will be accepted in the order they are received. We will arrange delivery of your revolver through a licensed dealer of your choice. If for any reason you are less than fully satisfied with your Tribute, you may return it in original unfired condition within 30 days for a full and courteous refund.
