Saddles of the Trans-Mississippi (Arkansas)

Very little information of any kind particularly concerning horse equipment manufacture has survived from Little Rock Arsenal. Surviving returns show only repair of a few horse equipment including twelve valise saddles in May 1863, 15 more in June and eleven in July. No other detailed information is known.
