Not sure how accurate/reliable it is ... perhaps others here might "review" it ...

Somebody went to quite a bit of work copy& paste-ng. Some of the items shown are really good (David Carrico's stuff) most of it is somewhat "close" Some are pretty poor repos. Some of the boots are just modern boots that just look kinda sorta close.

.....that's an old site put out by the Arizona Civil War Council, whatever that is/was. My opinion, as a guide towards putting an impression together. It can point you in a direction. One still needs to do their research. Then decide what level of authenticity you aspire to or what are you comfortable compromising with.
