Louis and Elias Haiman of Columbus, Georgia converted their tinsmithy into an Armory at the onset of the Civil War. They were one of the largest sword manufactories for the Confederate Government, also producing many other catagories of arms and accoutrements for the Confederacy. On November 17th, 1861 Haiman advertised in the Columbus Times, The best quality swords are now made and "for sale" at the "Confederate States Sword Factory", Columbus, Ga. by L. Haiman & Bro who have large contracts for the Confederate Government. The Haiman cavalry sabre featured above is authentic and original in every detail. Its blade is in excellent original condition, with no bends. The grip retains its entire very rare, "oilcloth wrap" and is held tightly in place by the correct single strand iron wire. This sword is accompanied with its original Haiman manufactured "dent free" scabbard, flat iron throat, exaggerated lapped seam, iron hanger rings, brass mounts and Haiman's distinctive pattern drag. Confederate utilized swords, enduring several years of hard service, are extremely rare to encounter today in such excellent condition. CS Acquisitions Museum.
