Subject: Climbing Irons
Thank you for the help. I research and portray Sharpshooters. I hopped over from the Sharpshooter forum to see if you folks could help me.
In the course of my research the climbing irons came up in some writings and I wanted to find out what they looked like so I could see if I could get a set made. I will have them more for display since I don't think I will be using them too much. Plus their actual use by SS units of the ACW was probably very limited since there is very little mention of them.
Trees are not good firing platforms for long range shooting. The trees move too much and a volley of muskets or a cannister round would clean my clock before I could get down to mother earth.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
