    Description

    Confederate Cloverleaf Pike Made in Macon Georgia. This pike measures 82" from the tip of the steel blade point to the bottom, rounded edge of the staff. At the outbreak of the Civil War in Georgia, Governor Joseph Brown armed his state militia troops with these old-fashioned lances so that the burgeoning numbers of volunteers would have something with which to fight. Although few saw combat in the war, the militia units did parade with the pikes at the start of the war. Many were thought to be used to foul the reins of charging horses, but they did not see widespread use. As Brown appealed to all the machine shops and blacksmiths of the state, thousands of these pikes were manufactured. In good condition, this pike has browned wood and a dull finish to the metal. This is a curious reminder of the sometimes hasty actions of some people as they rush to war.
