    Description

    Black Horse Troop, Dr. McGill, A Pair of Heavy Brass Confederate Spurs This pair of Confederate spurs are a no-frills, heavy duty set designed for battle. They are attributed to Dr. McGill of the famed Confederate Black Horse Troop. With the sideways mounted starburst rowels attached at the end of the 5" spur, these are highly attractive and a great example of the Confederate cavalryman's spurs. The brass has a nice and even patina with some rust at the rowels, these spurs show much field use making them even more desirable.

    Provenance: The Tharpe Collection of American Military History

    Exhibited: The Liberty Heritage Society Museum
