Pastimes of the U.S. Civil War – Inventory Number: CAM 34
Soldiers on both sides of the great conflict filled their days with every conceivable activity, from athletics to games of skill and chance. These artifacts are genuine Civil War Era gaming pieces.
Games of skill or chance were a cornerstone of camp life. Played for fun, but often for money, soldiers bet their meager wages on the roll of the dice or the draw of a card. Gaming pieces like dice, dominoes, chips, marbles and cards fit easily in a knapsack and could be played almost anywhere under any conditions.
