you are right--most of the mclellans are post  civil war---you are no wet blanket--90% is probably non- civil war stuff---according to an antique person I know,who knows some about antique saddles,the jennifer saddle is a fake,the morgan saddles are the real thing but that does not mean they were confederate saddles,the canvas saddles are fakes,the canvas or cloth too new...the bits? who knows.......in other words......or as someone once said...."If it sounds too good to be true".........Isn't the conferate calvary museum in new market?maybe that's how the untruths began..oh well..I can always take comfort in my collection of plastic vodks bottles.I know they're for real.
