The firm of Isaac, Campbell & Co. is an example of war profiteering at its worst.  At the
outbreak of the Civil War, Saul Isaac of New York purchased the London military
outfitting company of S. Campbell & Co.  He then proceeded to sell swords and other
military goods exclusively to the South at inflated prices.  A certain number of the fine
Enfield P1853 cavalry sabres from Isaac, Campbell & Co. were purchased by the State
of Georgia to outfit some of their cavalry regiments.  Each of these swords was marked
“ISAAC & Co” on the blade spine and a “G” was stamped at the ricasso near the fuller.
The three-branch guard is of iron and the grip is made of two pieces of very thick
checkered leather, riveted to the wide blade tang.  A 1" section of leather is missing from
the obverse side, there are chips to the leather, and some rivets are loose.  The slightly
curved 34 ½" blade has a long single unstopped fuller and a spear point (several deep
edge nicks near the point).  The metal is mostly untouched and “in the black”.  This
example came from the Brooklyn Museum, which stated that the donor had been a
Union soldier from Ohio who had picked up the sword on the battlefield of Antietam.  No
Scabbard, as typical of battlefield pickups.
