US Model 1832
Foot Artillery Sword
This is a Foot Artillery Sword from the period of 1832 to about 1870. This sword is based upon the
French M1831 Foot Artillery Sword which, in turn, was based upon the very early Roman gladius. The British
also used a similar pattern called the "Land Transport Corps Privates's Hanger, Pattern 1855."
West Point Cadet Name Searches
I have various information on West Point Cadets - graduates and non-graduates - from 1802 to 2002. If there is a name on your sword - and that name is registered as a West Point Cadet - I can very likely supply basic information on that individual. I charge $10 to search, non-refundable. If a record is found, I will forward that information on to you via e-mail; if no record is found, I will e-mail you to that effect. Follow this link to request a West Point Cadet Search.
