Arsenal of the Alleghenys is a Civil War shop with museum quality artifacts and military Americana. Located on Steinwehr Avenue, across from the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg National Park, it is owned by Jay and Melanie Thomas, who have more than 60 years of combined experience collecting Civil War era antiques, artifacts, American militaria and jewelry.
Investment grade antique weapons are available which include Springfields, Tower Enfields, Colts and Remingtons. View the largest collection of Civil War sabers on display in Gettysburg, showcasing dragoons, light cavalry and artillery swords.
Also available are cartridge boxes, canteens, gold and silver coins, bayonets, medical items and other militaria. We only sell genuine Civil War collectibles.
Besides militaria, we also sell antique and vintage jewelry. Diamonds, garnets, opals, platinum, seed pearls, sapphires and rubies are typically found in our cases. Victorian wedding bands for both men and women are always arriving, as is vintage jewelry from the Edwardian, Art Deco and post World War II time periods.
Our website showcases the caliber of our merchandise and is a sampling of the inventory. If you desire a unique, one-of-a kind civil war collectible or desire that one special item to round out your collection, contact us first. If we don’t have it, we can find it.
We look forward to hearing from you!
