Harrison Wiley's Haversack
Our Harrison Wiley's Haversack is a copy of the haversack carried by Illinois soldier Harrison Wiley who was discharged in 1863. It is an interesting haversack, big enough to carry three days rations. It is made from pre-painted oil cloth and entirely machine sewn as per the original haversack. It comes complete with button-in liner and has the correct size wire gauge, 5/8 inch buckle. The billet closure is chain stitched to front of haversack. The exterior is painted with the same non-toxic finish we use on all our haversacks and knapsacks.
