Veterans Day is a day to honor those who have served in the military. This day is celebrated on November 11th annually. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the military tradition started during World War I, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Armistice Day in honor of all Americans who died in the war.

The name “Cavalry” comes from the French word “cavalerie,” which means an important army component. The 1860 Replica Light Cavalry Saber Sword blade is approximately 30 inches long and one inch thick and is made for cutting. It is also covered with a large bowl-shaped guard, which protects the hands of the sailor. Despite the 1860 US Saber Sword’s historical significance, this sword is not in service today.

If you want to give a special gift to a veteran on Veterans Day in 2022, consider a rare M1850 Field Officers Military Sword. U.S. soldiers and sailors used this sword during the American Civil War. Later, the field officer’s replica military swords were carried on U.S. Navy ships during the Spanish-American War and World War I. U.S. Navy gunboats were also used in the Philippines and China from 1898 to 1930. Many of these swords exist today, including the 1860 model on the USS Constitution in Boston Harbor.
The dagger remained popular after the Revolutionary War. U.S. Navy soldiers still used it during the Civil War.
