One of the most important activities Civil War soldiers engaged in-away from their military routine, marches, and battles-was letter writing. We here at K. Windahl & Co. know how important it is for the living historian to be able to not only carry his stationary, but also keep it dry! Our Soldier's Writing kit is made from cotton drill, is painted with the same paint as our haversacks, and is closed two cotton tape ties. The case itself is also bound in cotton tape and lined with a variety of cotton print fabrics to add some style to your kit. 


The basic writing kit comes with:

- 1 painted cloth writing case

- 5 sheets of authentic stationary

- a strip of 10 stamps

- 5 brown craft paper envelopes with patriotic designs

- 2 all wood pencils


You can choose between US (Gettysburg, Penna) or CS (Richmond, VA), and you can also add a large and small notebook to the kit.


Kit 1 is the basic writing kit listed above. Kit 2 includes a large notebook. Kit 3 includes both a large and small notebook.
